Welcome to the first ever thread in The Sotonians position on… sub-category. As a new forum, there are many things that have not been established, or even discussed in any depth yet. People will want to know where we stand on important matters, or indeed, whether we think those matters are important at all.

We’ll start with an easy one. What do we think of Portsmouth?

My feelings on the matter are entirely situational. Day to day, I think the hatred between the clubs is a bit of a disappointment given the more amicable past we used to share (going to each others games, etc). I used to refrain from singing anti-Pompey songs, and I’ve even gone as far to say that it’s small-time. I think the Pompey Takeover Thread is the biggest embarrassment over at TSW. Obsessed much, boys? :laughing:

That all changed when I started going to matches more frequently. These days, I’ll belt out an anti-Pompey song with the best of them, but that’s just harmless mindless tribalism, and very lovely it is too. Out and about, I let on to Pompey people. I see them in their shirts, and I pick up on their hog-ney accents. Result has always been the same, rival southerners chuckling at how the pair of them, Southampton and Pompey people, ended up in Wherever, USA, etc.

Rivalry? Sure. Banter. Better believe it, but I personally have never encountered any real malice, and I sometimes reckon we’ve let that relationship become defined by the worst elements of our respective support. That’s my view, anyways.

Portsmouth. What do we reckon?

Who?

This is one reason why we are so much better than PFC, they steal money from charitites, we don’t.

And that PTS thread is far from an embarassment, it just goes to show that they haven’t learnt and are deluded.

I know it’s not a popular stance, but I don’t mind Pompey at all. They are like a cerebrally challenged, older sibling. The older brother who still works at the Warehouse, where he’s been since leaving school. He still lives at home and he’s the kind of guy that has never left the city boundary, except for one ill-fated trip to Europe a few years ago which cost too much money. The kind of guy that has never had a steady relationship, instead being used by the few ugly harridans who have expressed a vague interest in him, before being shown up for the shallow tarts they really are, before taking what few farthings he has as they leave. He did have one charismatic Boss once who appeared to take him under his wing, only to strip him of his life savings on a few dodgy financial gambles he was convinced to make. Since then, he’s often in fiscal strife and has become a slightly bitter, twisted and cynical fellow, who is unable to express himself coherently.

Yeah, he’s my brother and I feel sorry for him.

Are you special? The crooks who infested our club at the time might of done , we supprters had nothing to do with it .

In fact we raised the money off our own backs and paid it , even some of you helped , but hey lets not let the truth get in the way of your sociopathic outlook.

I knew Arthur was Pompey. He posts over on the UI.

I agree about the badge, though. Any preferences, Arthur, or are we free to just stitch you up like a Pompey kipper?


#8

I reckon we do two badges, Skate Mate or Skate Hate, and plop our fishy friends in that depending on whether they are dickheads or not.


#9

I agree, Like portsmouth one for B-Letch, Villa one for bear and Celtic one for me. Otherwise how are we going to know which team we support?

:innocent:

No I’m heart of Midlothian.


#13

At least they’re turning the city red and white.


#14

It makes much more sense to have it painted red when from a certain angle it looks like a huge vagina.


#15

Is it true that Portsmouth is named after blowjobs, cos Port is like something sailors come in to, and cos Mouth is like a mouth?

srs question no trolls pls

Do your research, Toke.

My team is Leinster - or more specifically County Wexford, depending on the sport. If not that, then it’s the mighty Gosport Borough all the way. Saints is my fifth or sixth team.

On the subject of plastic fans and Bear being a Villa fan, I’m reminded of going away to see Saints v Villa many years ago. I went with a couple of mates - one of whom had only recently really got into his football.

So we’ve been on the coach for a few hours and my JCL mate starts complaining that it’s taking a long time to get there. We just ignore him and get him another beer. We then hit the outskirts of Birmingham and the mate in questions sees a road sign saying “Birmingham 5 miles” and he freaks out; telling us that we’ve gone the wrong way or that we’re on the wrong coach.

It turns out he thought that ‘Villa’ was a London club!

The rest of the journey, the match, the return journey and in fact most of that year was spent taunting him with cockney sayings, said in a brummie accent.

Try it. It’s odd.

Oop thoi haples and perz

Ow abowt a noice coop of rowsey loi?

Toke’s a ****.

EDIT: pap, can we take **** out of the swear filter? I need to use it, because as yesterday proved Toke really is a ****.

It’s not a curse word, it is a legitimate word meaning a person who puts his dick in a fish’s hoo-ha.
