Do you have a skate mate?

I have a skate mate. I call him that to his face. I am his scum chum. Do you have a skate mate?

Go on. You can admit it if you do.

I’ve got a couple of mates who live in portsmuff but neither of them support pompey (one is an egg chaser the other supports plymouth), I go and see them fairly regularly, getting drunk helps with the locale.

These unions sometimes have their uses, especially if the Sotonian half of the relationship is a pain in the arse and ends up moving to Portsmouth.

My skate mate was brought up in Leigh Park.

Now lives and works in Valencia with a lovely Italian partner.

He follows Pompey’s results but he can’t believe his luck that 1) he got out of Leigh Park 2) Left Portsmouth and 3) Left the UK and is doing well for himself.

Went to Pompey uni but no skate mates. Know a few people who live there but not to socialise with.
I like the place. Southsea is nice. Somers town not so much.

Did the city of Southampton award you with any honours for this feat? :smiley:

My (Saints supporting) brother was born in a Portsmouth Hospital and has never lived it down. The only time I remind him of it, is if he beats me at golf.
I think the last time was around about 2001.
This sounds reasonably impressive, but I’ve been at the opposite end of the planet since 2003 :slight_smile:

My step-nephew is a Skate poor sod just an accident of birth.
He quite happily accepts the ridicule he gets as he has lived his whole life on the Waterside.

Born in a car that had broken down due to a desperate but failed 80mph rush out of Portsmouth in the general direction of Southampton, I’d hope.

Quite a few who i’ve worked with and some have become friends. Generally a very good natured bunch always up for a bit of banter and a laugh. Always call them skates / fish fuckers / cousin shaggers, etc.

The wicketkeeper in my old village team was one of the Salisbury 657 krew

The team passed a don’t talk about football rule early doors and so we got on fine.
