We get to know a little more about Toronto4pompey.
1 – Vital Pompey username?
2 – Where do you come from/where do you currently live?
I was born in Guildford, grew up in Godalming Surrey off and on until about age 13, then moved to Canada. I now live and work in Brampton, which is about half an hour outside of Toronto.
3 – How long have you been a Vital Pompey member?
Not certain but it was when Les was running the joint – so that must be eons ago right!
4 – What do you think of Vital Pompey? Be brutally honest!
I think it’s brutally superb. The articles are well thought out, the feedback from the members is thoughtful & well informed and for those of us not able to get to the games, it’s one of the best ways of being part of it all.
5 – How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
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.
1976, v. Brighton & Hove Albion, Div 3.
7 – How often do you get to watch Pompey?
Quite a bit these days. Setanta broadcasts or rebroadcasts most EPL games every week out here (except the bloody Reading game, which was pre-empted due to the f—-g rugby world cup. I must be the only mug on this site who has never actually seen that game. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!)
8 – Who is your favourite Pompey Player – current and/or former?
Matt Taylor, but Distin is giving him a run for the money these days.
9 – What is you favourite Pompey moment?
Well I’d like to say the Reading game but….toughing it out and surviving in the EPL 2 seasons ago when everyone else had written us off. Most people out here are fans of the “Big 4”, but I doubt they could be as proud of their teams as I was of mine that year and still am.
10 – What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
I’m an optimist so the sky’s the limit. No Europe next year would be a huge disappointment though, so no more “well, we’re only Pompey after all” for me Arry!
