To be fair, I would be more worried had I been a Pompey fan. That is a really sad story unveiling. I have a friend who lives in Portsmouth and is fairly into football, so I do feel for him. And all Portsmouth supporters. It is no fun when your sport and your game becomes the playground for people who do not care for anything except to suck the supporter as dry as possible then leave the team in an untenable position.

Tottenham Hotspur fan here (the team that currently plays at White Hart Lane which Octale mentioned in his show from, I dunno, a number of months ago). It's an interesting battle at the top of the Premier League at the moment, the run in is a lot closer than it has been for many years.

I would, however like to add my sympathy to Pompey fans. It's a damn disgrace when corporation and money gets in the way of a competetive sport. The only real losers here are the fans, and it's a disgrace that a team from arguably the biggest league in the world has been put in such a situation. I honestly hope that Portsmouth FC somehow survive this financial crisis and bounce back next season.

Hm, now why didn't I see this thread before?

Die Hard Benfica supporter here. Yup, the team that has a live eagle descend from the top of the stadium to a stand in the middle of the field to complete the team's symbol before every home game:

- After we started doing that we actually started to win a lot more home games, can't stop now can we?

On the topic of money getting in the way of the sport I can only say its a sad state of affairs but nowadays football is a billionaire money printing industry where the chairmen, people in management positions, manager and players themselves rarely care for the team they defend as the supporters do, money being their top concern.

Gone are the days where the players were payed next to nothing and played for love of the sport and badge at thier chest. It gets even more depressing when players seem to make less of an effort in their national teams.

That's progress I guess...

That is the greatest pre-match tradition I've ever seen. We just don't get that sort of thing in the UK... I mean, we have idiots dressed in fuzzy mascot outfits, but nothing nearly as cool as this.
