Vital November - An Anoraks View

Vital November - An Anoraks View
Last month I wrote an article called 'Vital Pompey - On the Up' - read more on that article here - which compared Vital Pompey to other clubs fans sites on the Vital Network.

I thought my ramblings would not necessarily be to everybody's taste but working on the basis that at least some of you might be interested I carried on regardless.

Well it seems that not only have I sparked a bit of interest in the subject I seem to have inspired a number of you to contribute even more than you normally do (It's probably not the case at all but I'm taking the credit ;)

So, in a bid to keep all those like-minded 'Stato's' out there happy, here's my analysis of how we (Vital Pompey) faired in November.

In October our amassed points total of '3588' saw us just pip Blackpool to 8th place in the most contributed to site. In November, however, we added just under two thousand points to pull together an amazing '5516' which means we sat proudly in 7th place - Not bad considering there are approx. 150 sites on the network.

The Top 10 Vital Club sites are as follows:

1 - Millwall - 18447pts
2 - Aston Villa - 16012pts
3 - Chelsea - 10900pts
4 - Spurs - 10546pts
5 - Sheffield Wednesday - 9721pts
6 - Arsenal - 5880pts
7 - Portsmouth - 5516pts
8 - Leeds - 4524pts
9 - Rotherham - 4459pts
10 - Blackpool - 4427pts

As you can see we have some way to go to topple the top two or three, but considering they each have nearly 400 members contributing to their site on a regular basis, I think we are doing pretty well.

... But, there's more ...

Once again our very own 'Landlord Rug' amassed our highest individual total with a crackin' 1029 points nearly double what he did the previous month and moving him from 10th to 9th place in the individual rankings.

In October Carpet and I were 'over the moon' at finishing in the top 50 with respectable 40th and 22nd placings whereas Eastneydave and Storagematt were 72nd and 73rd overall.

November saw an even greater showing with Carpet & I creeping into the Top 20 at 16th & 15th as well as top 100 showings for 'Gleamer' (22nd), Eastneydave (38th), and 'Owens' (73rd)

Mention should also go to NinjaTim & Storagematt for amassing over 200 points and to paultsmouth, pompey4me, tracyc, pompeygray, linvoyforengland, Tantona & The Rabbi for being this months 100 club members.

Obviously, as 'Toronto4Pompey' mentioned last month its 'quality' not 'quantity' that counts and I for one completely agree, but I spend a lot of time on other clubs site researching my articles and it's fair to say that the quality of what get published on this site and the discussions that occur in the forums is excellent - If we can maintain that there's no telling were well go.

Finally, just to reiterate that everybody's contribution is valued and valid and it really doesn't matter if you just log on for a minute or two to the take part in the polls or the prediction league... but as I said last month, next time you do just spare a minute to say 'hello' in one of the many forums going on, you're guaranteed a warm welcome and your post and the responses you receive will all collect points... which will help push Vital Pompey further up the Vital League...

I think that's it except to say that in the unlikely event that I write this article for a third consecutive month, it'll mean that I was up collecting statistics at 11:59pm on New Years Eve - should that happen I might need a good divorce lawyer...

I'll be back with more stats in early February... Lucky You :)

Nice one Chix. I'm certain if you really want the December stats someone at Vital will be able to provide them through the Landlord. I doubt they disappear into the ether.

Is it a race or are we just posting, voting etc. when we have something to say? Joking the increased activity is all down to the landlord, we just pay the rent.

Please be Real Madrid...please be Real Madrid!

Ok, despite the fact Real Madrid must 'owe us one' for Diarra, I'm a realist with who Pompey will face...I'll settle for a pre-season friendly at Fratton being against Barcelona!

On this day in history...25th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 25th May.

We know Danny you want to stay!

In case we had forgot Hollands has reminded us of his desire to stay with Pompey! I'm not 'desperate' either way in many ways but sorting this quickly would be best for all concerned.

Three more pre-season games announced

'Glamour ties' are loved but pre-season is about fitness and form so it doesn't matter if it's Barcelona or Bognor... Then again a trip to the Nou Camp wouldn't be turned down!
