    Default Unlucky Bristol City

    I'd be moaning as well at Crouchie's two arm balls, but see it this way, when Pompey win the cup they win it for 6 years running, so you go down in history as part of it, and we were pants last season in the cup except for the 0-1 win at Old Trafford.

    by 6 years running do you mean when they won it in 1938/39 season then no final was played for 6 years because of WW2?

    means sheffielf united also went down in history as they won it in 1914/15 season then was held for 5 years due to WW1

    Still held it for 6 years stats show no one else got to polish it until after the war

    So we'd all better hope for June to arrive and there to have been a final this year, or it means a 7 year war this time.

    We also like to boast we've appeared in the final 4 times and won it twice, and that would've been 5 and 3 times if we hadn't got robbed out of it in 92.

    I have to tell you this James, and don't take personally but I hope you slip through to the conference tbh, now I'll explain

    1976 I'm sure you remember that year Pompey were about to fall out of the old 2nd div and end up in the basement for 2 seasons, at the time my dad worked at Fawley oil refinery and he and all the other fitters from Pompey used to have to endure endless ridicule about how gr8 they were and how bad we were from the local lot, this has always remained with me all these years and it would be absolutely fantastic if the boot were to jump foot so to speak, I wouldn't want to see you remain there, but I'd love you to taste it for a few years, eventually I'd like to see (WE'D) like to see you back as most Pompey diehards enjoy the derby's with you for various reasons , but see it this way, you aren't the 1st to fall from grace and you won't be the last, Man City,Leicester,Leeds,Notts County,Notts Forest,Sheff Weds, to name a few that have or are having to play the Rochdales of this world, one memory though, back then in div 4 we had some very good players, the football was amazing to watch, I remember them doing Scunthorpe 6-1 at fratton, all watched by *are you sitting down* 24000 ppl, 32000 ppl in a league cup game against Middlesbro, I saw Grobbeler play for Crewe, John Aldridge for Newport iirc and various other players who became top stars, Rushy for Chester, I have the programs up mum's, I'll try to get one some time and scan the fixture and results page so you can see how our rebirth went, and finally, 4-1 against Huddersfield, Kindon scored for them and then Pompey demolished em, think it was Kindon's celebration that did it, and did we give him some stick.

    im sure saints fans endured endless ridicule before they got to the top flight too, no matter what league saints are in pompey fans will always give them stick and vice versa, going down to league one could be a blessing in disguise to let the youngsters progress more as a team but i dont see it happening this year, another great escape season i think then mid table next or higher.





    well here's hoping anyway
