Knowing me knowing you - pompeycarpet

Knowing me knowing you - pompeycarpet
1 - Vital Pompey username?
Pompeycarpet: I was feeling unimaginative when I was making it, and saw that pompeyrug was the editor…

2 - Where do you come from/where do you currently live?
Born in Surrey, grew up in Surrey, live in Surrey. But my heart has always been in Portsmouth.

3 - How long have you been a Vital Pompey member?
Since May-ish this year. I found the site on newsnow, and couldn't stand reading people's comments, and not being able to object.

4 - What do you think of Vital Pompey? Be brutally honest!
It's a great place where people can comment on how they feel Pompey are doing, honestly, and without the threat of being shouted at for being wrong…(unlike the vital spurs site.)

5 - How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
As I said before, newsnow.

6 - When did you first watch Pompey live - not on box unless this is the only way you have been able to see them? Not necessarily at Fortress Fratton though.
Much too recently and much too infrequently! I do like to think of myself as a lucky mascot, as whenever I have seen them play live, we have not lost.

7 - How often do you get to watch Pompey?
Not enough. I only saw them a few times last season, and I don't have sky, so I am stuck to MOTD, and/or some possibly illegal site that lets me watch the games with Chinese commentary. (But I can now watch every game on this site.)

8 - Who is your favourite Pompey Player - current and/or former?
It is difficult to know who my "favourite" player is. I tend to like whoever is playing on the left side of midfield, as that is generally where I play (when I get the time) and I have always liked Niko - ever since a friend told me he was this "amazing player" who just scored goals, had a 100% pass success rate, and couldn't be tackled (admittedly he DID say the same thing about Mbesuma and Alain Perrin…) - not quite true, but pretty accurate. I also think that some of our younger players are extremely classy, Mvuemba in particular.

9 - What is you favourite Pompey moment?
Losing to arsenal 5-1, and singing "we're gonna beat you 6-5."

10 - What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
New stadium, new training facilities and a decent academy. Success is built on these, and if we get them all quickly, then there will be nothing to stop us playing champions league football within 5 years - UEFA cup could come this year. Oh, and did I mention winning the FA cup?

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Nice one, I've often wondered where the 'carpet' name came from and whether or not it was a take on 'Rug'. Can the same be true for Storagematt I wonder?

Nathan Thompson - A Swindon perspective

Prior to his departure for Wigan, Paul Cook wanted Nathan Thompson at Pompey. Interest was retained by Kenny Jackett, who completed his free transfer signing from Swindon last week.

On this day in history...26th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 26th June.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.

Interest in Plymouth midfielder? Unfortunately not

Apparently, having stolen the League Two title from Plymouth, we'll not be taking the Pilgrims' best player, ex-Celtic midfielder Carey, currently out-of-contract at Home Park.
