Sunday Carvery is a Winner

Sunday Carvery is a Winner
As she is also an avid Pompey fan, I thought what better way was there of celebrating than booking into the MM suite at Fratton Park for Sunday roast.

It's simple to book, 023 9277 8555 Hilary will take the booking, paid for there and then with the old plastic! Lovely lady squeezed us in at late notice (typical bloke!). She gives you a time slot, and it's all done.

Arrived at Fratton Park early, why do I get a buzz from just being at that place now, even when not on match day? No problems, they sat us straight away. For any of you that haven't seen it yet, the MM suite has had a makeover, quite different now, kinda sophisticated. Have to be honest; when we were taken to our table, I was disappointed to see we were sharing. But, with the kids in tow, we soon got talking and debating Pompey, particularly Sean Davis (had to ask the bloke if he was russellm!! lol) and, if anything it added to the occasion anyway.

Up we went for the carvery, wasn't expecting this, but the food was top notch!! A choice of roast Beef or Lamb, a veggie alternative, and all the Yorkshires and vegetables you could wish for. For those of us with the larger appetite, I believe you could go up again if you liked.

Desert was just as good, a selection of very appetising cold deserts with cream, and an incredibly good, thick and stodgy Apple Crumble and Custard.

Then we went off on the tour. Started at the dugout, kids pretending to be HR!!! Then into the changing rooms, off up to the directors box, kids waving in Sascha style to the Fratton End, then off to the boardroom. This was great for any Pompey fan!! Unfortunately for any of you looking to go, I don't think they are doing the tour every week, you would have to ask Hilary at the time of booking.

We then watched the Fulham - Pompey game in the MM suite, next best thing to being at the game! Sneaked a peek into the sports bar that looks fantastic!

This day cost just 9.95 per adult and 4.95 per kid. That was less than 30 for the wife's Birthday treat!! Thank god she is a Pompey fan too!

It has been jokingly asked if I am on commission, well no, but Rug asked if I would write an article on my day. As a family we loved it!!! Here's the crunch, the staff said if it isn't used, they will stop it, and it is great value, especially if Pompey are away on a Sunday. Vital members, don't miss this, look for when they are showing Pompey away, try to get on the tour and have a good day!

Go eastneyd, just seen in the news that they are doing the stadium tour again this week. Rabbi, i know to some it seems wierd, but she loves Pompey. To us, Pompey matchdays and anything Pompey is family time.

Family time that is the best idea isnt it, get the kids when they are undecided about who to follow and let the savour the atmosphere at Fratton before the lure of Sky pushes them to United or Chelsea. Hope the club give you value for money, i might give it a go myself.

Yep owens, got 'em!!The youngest has always been pompey through and through, had a scare with the eldest, looked like he was gonna be a gooner, but i think they are now firmly installed as his second team!! you are right owens, once you savour the atmosphere at FP, there is none to rival it. The kids even commented on the lack of passion from the manure crowd when we went to old trafford for the cup game last year.

Tubbs has left the building

Tubbs has finally left Pompey; perhaps his destination is something of a surprise then again there had been some 'rumours' recently of an Eastleigh interest.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.
