You cannot underestimate what having a fantastic following can do for a club – and we, the 12th man, could make a huge difference if we turn up in numbers and offer fantastic support for the team as only Pompey fans can at Wolves this weekend.

The travelling support at Villa, whilst small in numbers, was fantastic at Villa Park recently – many were amazed at how much noise 300 of us made, and that atmosphere was something else at times. For me I would say that 30-minutes rendition of ‘The Great Escape’ challenged one of the most fantastic memories I have from the past decade or so when I have been in the crowd, the ‘Tony Adams blue and white army’ against Milan…

As many as 600 are said to have gone to Carlisle for that midweek game last week and again I thought the support was fantastic that night, with some real old classics rolled out.

The support against Everton at Fratton in our last game, and I guess to be fair the support against Bolton – on the whole, has also been really good. Is it any coincidence that this upturn in fortunes, at least performance wise, has coincided with this real upturn in vocal support from the fans?

I think not.

So, and again for me, the more we can take to Wolves, and the more noise we make, the more difference this can help make to the outcome of this game, which – even at this ‘fairly early’ stage of the season – really is a must win game.

I know that football is far from cheap these days but by today’s standards, £24 for a ticket is not that bad really, is it?

So, if you have not got a ticket and you can make it why not get down to the ticket office this week and pick up one – Wolverhampton is not really that far from Portsmouth is it?

Go on, you know you want to!

I know I want to be at the game where our season finally turns around, hence why I am going – from Devon via Milton Keynes when I visit my sister.

No, I am not working on commission or am I under instruction from PFC, this is being done off my own back as I know just how important we, The Blue Army, can be to the team so the more we could take the better, and as said the more I feel this increases our chances of getting that all important win going into the international break…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
