We get to know a little more about PompeyGleamer.

1 – Vital Pompey username?
PompeyGleamer, my initials are G. Lea so that’s how Gleamer was created.

2 – Where do you come from/where do you currently live?
I was born and bred in Pompey, and moved recently to Old Portsmouth.

3 – How long have you been a Vital Pompey member?
I’ve been a member for a while, but never posted anything due to the fact I always forgot my password! I would say about half a year.

4 – What do you think of Vital Pompey? Be brutally honest!
I think its great. I like the fact that I can offer my views and opinions to people who are as passionate as I am on Pompey, my mates at school aren’t so keen, and I love reading peoples thoughts on Pompey.

5 – How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
News Now.

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.
My first game was on Saturday, 24 November 2001, Watford v Pompey!! We got hammered 3 – 0 but I had a great day out with my dad and at the first opportunity got a season ticket!

7 – How often do you get to watch Pompey?
I have a season ticket, so I usually get to most home games and I go to about 5 or 6 away games each year.

8 – Who is your favourite Pompey Player – current and/or former?
My current favourite player has to be Muntari, as I think he is an all round brilliant player, whilst my favourite player of the past has to be Paul Merson, quite simply a legend!

9 – What is you favourite Pompey moment?
No moment comes near to the final whistle at the Wigan game, I remember going berserk and running on the pitch, I just couldn’t take it in at the time!

10 – What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
European football would be amazing if you consider where we were 2 years ago, I think we are primed and ready with the players we have and I think we will keep moving forwards and upwards!

  • Nice one Gleamer – You are one of the most active forum members we have on the site and it’s always good to have a bit on banter with you …. ‘OLD’ Portsmouth ! – Loaded or what ! 😉 I once bought a pint in the Still & West which cost me nearly a grand …. Keep on posting sunshine it’s good to have you around….. and now we know your true thoughts on Sulley Muntari ‘)

  • haha, old portsmouth! great place, looking to stay there all my life, although university is going to be problem as the best one around is southamptons..

  • …university of surrey…just a trian ride away in guildford…or you could go up to oxfordshire…i heard there was a good uni in oxford…and thats not far away…other than that…whats wrong with portsmouth university?

  • well in the rankings southampton is hughest ( i think) at 14 and pompeys is midtable at around 60, so i would rather go to southamptons tbh, dont know what would happen if I wear my pompey shirt though

  • Hang on fellas… Surely you pick your Uni on their standing against the subject you plan to study… So if it’s Marine Biology Pompey is No1, If it’s Maths it’s Oxford, Literature or History Cambridge or Exeter, Environmental studies Lancaster, Sheffield, Durham and so on.. choose carefully Gleamer… but if it is Scumton wear that shirt with pride my boy 😉

  • don’t go to Southampton uni go to Guildford. We’ll help pay your train fares. You don’t want to mix with that lot.
