    Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 09:10 AM Could we do what Barcalona do, pay to attend training sessions? We could open Fratton Park over the summer and show training matches. It works two ways, we get to see all of what is coming through the academy and early judgement on new players. In return pompey take a little money. I reckon with the right backing we could take a devout 5,000 fans each week."

    Yes Jim. I'm sure 5,000 people will turn out to watch your academy players (ie the four kids from the Southsea Seascouts 3rd Platoon whose parents couldn't afford to send them on the camping trip to Filey) kick a football they won at the fair round your whistling void of a stadium while the first team players sit sunning themselves in £500-a-night hotels in Mauritius. I think you've solved the problem."
