Pompey head for unwanted record

PORTSMOUTH are closing in on an unwanted piece of Hampshire football history.

Last night’s 2-1 reverse at fellow League 1 strugglers Scunthorpe was their eighth successive league defeat.

They are only one more loss away from equalling their own club record for consecutive losses, and just two away from establishing a new record.

Portsmouth’s current losing streak is already more than Saints, Aldershot or Bournemouth have ever suffered in league action.

Saints’ worst losing run is just five games, something they have achieved 10 times, the last in 1998.

Aldershot’s record six-match league losing run was established earlier this season, while Bournemouth’s worst losing run is seven games.

Pompey’s next two games are also away – a south coast derby at Bournemouth this Saturday and the gruelling long trip to another relegation-threatened club, Hartlepool, next Tuesday.

Two more losses and a new club record will be set.

Pompey, aiming to avoid a third relegation in four seasons, still have some way to go to match Darwen’s all-time Football League record for successive defeats.

The Lancashire club lost 18 games in a row back in 1898/99.

Us Pompey fans are in seventh heaven about all this. We absolutely love our history as you well know - league titles, FA cup and now we are yet again creating HISTORY.

Plus, we absolutely love to sing, especially when we are losing because are we are the absolute best fans in the world. People may say that shows a lack of ambition, but they are wrong. It simply shows how wonderful we all are.

I cried and cried and cried and cried last night but managed to clap and cheer through the tears.

The future is uterly irrelevent - it's all about past history. I will spend my money watching defeat after defeat safe in knowledge we were league champions in a previous geleogical era.

I'm Pompey till we die.
