We get to know a little more about ChrisW.
1 – Vital Pompey username?
ChrisW, Christopher Wells – for some reason I have avoided nom de plumes ever since the Internet spread its wings 12-15 years back – blame it on lack of imagination.

Proud to be born in Botley Drive, Leigh Park in 59 – it made me one tough, proud S.O.B.
Currently live in a small village between Reading and Wokingham via North and East Africa, Mid and Far East, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, USA.
3 – How long have you been a Vital Pompey member?
About 3 months. (Written in mid February 2008.)
4 – What do you think of Vital Pompey? Be brutally honest!
Vital Pompey is full of my soul mates – good, hard working Pompey fans and I have yet to see one cross word directed at anybody – which is a real skill on behalf of you all.
5 – How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
Every day I search Google News using the following – “pompey location:uk”, Rug’s words are always there and attracted me like a boat to the Lorelei Rock.
6 – When did you first watch Pompey live – not on box unless this is the only way you have been able to see them? Not necessarily at Fortress Fratton though.
Fratton End around 70 to 71.
7 – How often do you get to watch Pompey?
I share 2 season tickets with my family, so typically I get to 1 in 2 home games plus the occasional away match. I record every match on Sky and god help my kids if they speak when I watch the recording [typically 2-3 times]
8 – Who is your favourite Pompey Player – current and/or former?
Can I have 3? Benjani, Muntari and Jamo – Merson was cool too and Lua Lua when he wasn’t being a kid.
9 – What is you favourite Pompey moment?
Winning the Championship, I followed it whilst living in New York, which was great – waking at 9 and having breakfast just in time for the 10am (3pm) kickoff.
10 – What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
I believe all of the top 20 or 30 teams will end up in the hands of the super rich – I only hope that the true fans, whatever the team, don’t get left by the wayside…
PLAY UP POMPEY!
