Are you tired of the damaging nonsense printed about Pompey by the Sun? We are and as a result Vital Pompey and myPompey have teamed up to create a powerful coalition which will endeavour to Boot the Sun out of Pompey until it mends its ways.

myPompey and Vital Pompey are independent fans sites and as such we are ‘rivals’ in many ways given we try to ensure that each is a first port of call for Pompey fans – let’s be honest here!

That said, with Vital Pompey and myPompey being among the best and most respected Pompey sites out there, we felt that joining forces on the issue of tackling the Sun will be beneficial for all Pompey fans and of course, the Club we all love.

We are tired of the slurs that this ‘rag’ keeps pushing our way and we are tired of the pain and hurt that this causes Pompey fans, the Club and the effect it has on the City as a whole. Not only does this publication damage us but it also influences others with its often inaccurate and mischievous reporting.

That’s why we have joined forces to help… Boot the Sun out of Pompey!

How can you help?

Portsmouth and the surrounding area is one of the largest subscribers to the Sun. So we ask you to stop buying the rag and get it booted out of Portsmouth. Hurt them where it hurts most, in the pocket!

You can also help by refusing to read it online and generally wherever possible avoid it like the plague.

Perhaps if enough sales are lost the Sun will sit up and take notice and who knows, it might even mend its ways. Even if it doesn’t, you know you will have done your bit for the Club and the City of Portsmouth.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
