The Gristle - The 'Official' Portsmouth FC Website

The Gristle - The 'Official' Portsmouth FC Website

Welcome to a new weekly article which I've labelled 'The Gristle'

Unlike its' parent article 'Chew The Fat' - A weekly on-line debate where you guys fire questions at me and seek my opinion on all matters Pompey - 'The Gristle' turns the tables and asks for your opinion on one topic of debate that was raised but not discussed in any great depth, and in my opinion, deserves more air-time.

My maiden selection flew off the page at me on Thursday and although I tried to seek opinion during the evening, the debate was firmly entrenched elsewhere.

So now it's your opportunity to let me know what you think about this weeks unaired subject.

The 'Official' Portsmouth FC website.

Yep, I want to know about our club website, what you like about it, what you dislike about it, whether you find the articles of interest, honest, relevant ?

Perhaps you feel there is too much advertising on it, or maybe you think it should provide more in-depth features on our squad members, or perhaps it should carry a monthly message from our manager or captain etc.

How does it compare to other club websites you've visited? Is the content better? Is the format or style worse? How easy is it to navigate? Perhaps you'd like to offer a suggestion on what could improve it ?

Good or bad I want to know what you think.

Once you have had your say I will collate the info and pass it on to the club for comment. You never know, they might even take some of your ideas on board!

So here's your chance to have your say... The question?

"What do you think of www.portsmouthfc.co.uk ?"

Post your thoughts below

In the forum.. Coxy30 said..
"It's ok. Like you said it all advertising. When the players are interviewed it's good but then it just gets copied in the news. Be nice if there was stuff on there that wasn't anywhere else"

Pompeym@ thinks..
"well the articles for the most part are pretty pointless in my opinion, and even then are not exactly well written
but the worse thing is apart from advertising the club i really don't see the official sites purpose anymore. Pretty much all official news is on either the fan sites or in the new's before its on the OS and all the other information on the OS is else where and better presented
they could also do a lot more with the pompey player, surely it wouldn't cost much to pay a camera man or 2 to film every match and stream it on the site for a price? i'd bet they'd make a killing from the away matches!
i'm sure theres some plus points on it but i don't use it anymore so i can't think of 1
"

With the age of the internet as it is today, pretty much relying on fansites to deliver the news as it breaks I think the OS has become a ground overlooked for information. This time 2 years ago we had to wait over 2 months for the OS to confirm the signing of Mokoena, which has 'broken' on every sports network and fansite long beforehand. Whether they are struggling for funds to keep the OS the main source of breaking news, or it's down to sheer lack of sharpness or laziness is unclear, but for those who seek the news from a first hand source, I think the OS has to step up its game.

Unfortunately, nothing that actually appears on the website is really NEWS as most of it has actually been aired already elsewhere, we only use it as a confirmation of what we've heard as the "official" version (and not necessarily the Truth!). Useful for fixtures updates, but it seems to be always playing catchup! and yes agree with the others - advert city! At least their web-hosting costs should be kept low as we won't need many player profile slots !!! :-)

Send the Rovers on their way empty handed?

Match Day Officials v Bristol Rovers

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Bristol Rovers this weekend.

On this day in history...11th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 11th February.

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.
