With it being the international break and nothing much else is going on, as well as the transfer window being closed so we cannot even make any ‘surprise signings’ here is a ‘hypothetical scenario’ for you to ponder!

It all started with the talk about a possible move for Andrew Surman from our neighbours down the road. Clearly I knew he played for the Saints, but I did not actually realise that he was also a massive Saints fan until recently, so even if such a move did come off how hard could it be for him to play for Pompey – particularly against the Saints if he had to?

Anyway as the chat moved on Chix brought up this scenario, ‘could anybody here, after supporting Pompey all your life go and play for the Saints? Imagine if you found yourself in the cup final against Pompey and with a minute to go it was 0-0 and you as a scummer player had to take a penalty? Could you ever show your face in Pompey again if you scored? could you just ‘do your job?’ would it be a case of ‘Pompey ’til I die, unless I play for the scum’?’

It would be quite a predicament to be in do you not think fellas?

So, to keep us active and for something to ponder while we whittle away the hours before England play Russia, which then brings us ever closer to getting back to business with Pompey, even though it is purely a ‘hypothetical question’, what would you honestly do if you found yourself in that situation?

PLAY UP POMPEY!
