Pompey should run out to Portsmouth by Mike Oldfield! Not my vote, yours – although these findings from The Rabbi’s poll are thoughts completely agree with.

The run out music that most clubs have is not something that everyone likes, some view it as being too ‘American’ but I think that it sets the tone and gets the crowd pumped up – as if they need it! – as when you hear this kick in you know you are only moments away from the start of the game.

I believe that we currently run out to music from Pirates of the Caribbean, but as I have only been to the one home game this season – yep we all know which one that was! – as I did not pay too much attention as I was so hyped at actually being there I cannot be sure on this?

I always liked it when we came out to the classic ‘Portsmouth’ theme by Mike Oldfield, it is unique in as much as no one else can really use it can they as it is a song for us! It might be seen as too old fashioned now and it might not fit in with ‘where we are now’ but I always liked it when I heard this played.

To be honest as much as I like the clich├ęd ones like ‘simply the best’ or ‘let me entertain you’ and so on, as they do get you pumped up that Mike Oldfield one always worked for me.

What the poll asked – What music should Pompey run out to before home matches?

How you voted – Portsmouth – Mike Oldfield 38%, Jerusalem 18%, Simply the best – Tina Turner 9%, Seven Nation Army – The White Stripes 8%, Enjoy Yourself – The Specials 6%, We are the Champions – Queen 5%, Return of the Los Palmas 7 – Madness 4%, Land of Hope and Glory 4%, Hurry up Harry – Sham 69 2%, Zoom – Fat Larry’s Band 2%, Moonlight Shadow – Mike Oldfield 1%, Hate to say I told you so – The Hives 1%, Born to be Wild – Steppenwolf 1%, Song 2 – Blur 1%

Current Poll – Pompey return to action this weekend after the international break, has this broke our rhythm or can we get back into our stride carrying on where we left off.

We went into the international break unbeaten since the previous one, we will now be hoping for an almost unheard of 3rd successive away victory – which would be 4 including the league cup win – when we go to Wigan, something we have never achieved in the Premier league and have not done this full stop for over 20 years, more than 50 years since we did this in the top flight!

Can we make it a hat-trick of away wins, that is what pompeyrug – me – wants to know with this – ‘can we make it a hat-trick of away league wins when we face Wigan this weekend?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.
