Pompey relegated again


Portsmouth have been relegated again, this time to the bottom level of English professional football to be playing in League 2 next season. I'm very sad as they are my local club and I've been to watch them lots of times. Hopefully the fans consortium now owning the club can sort them out and get the club back to where it should be! Crazy to think they were playing AC Milan in Europe just 4 years ago, and won the FA Cup in 2008, beating Cardiff. If you'd of said then that in 5 years time Cardiff would be promoted to the Premier League and Pompey relegated to League 2 on the same day you wouldn't have believed them. Crazy. Play up Pompey!

It might be good for them, to give time to the new supporters led consortium to stabilise the club, but in the long run they will need outside finances to get them back up the leagues. Good memories of Pompey as we survived the last game there to stay in the Premier, the same year they got to the final. How fortunes have changed.

You could say they're paying the heavy price of buying the FA Cup.

@IanRush just looked at the table, hope Aldershot don't go down as they are another of my local clubs, but it doesn't look good for them.

They actually beat Icelandic side IBV 2-1 in a friendly tonight if anyone cares - former Pompey keeper David James was playing for IBV, while former Pompey defender Hermann HreiĆ°arsson played for IBV before changing sides to play a cameo role for Pompey. And Linvoy Primus, Portsmouth legend, played for Pompey.

@AFC_Harry34 My Grandparents retired there, I lived there with my mother and them for 2/3 years when I was a toddler. It's a special place for me...sniff...

And even worse they didn't play in the League tonight, only relegated because Oldham won.
