Oppos View – Portsmouth Part 2

View from the opposition – Portsmouth Part 2

Name:  Scott Mclachlan
 

Current home town: London
Birthplace: Sarfsea
 

How long have you supported your team? 35 years
 

Overview of your club: Mid table strugglers and that suits us just fine, we've flirted with liquidation too many times to be worried about Promotion
pushes.  With the appointment of a young boss the owners are looking to build the club up slowly, but with the lack of any infrastructure at all and
a very poor ground at Fratton it will be a long job.

A bit about you:

Name:  Pam Wilkins

Current home town: Portsmouth

Birthplace: Portsmouth

How long have you supported your  team? 51 years

Overview of your club:

Once one of the top teams in the country, brought low by years of bad management, overspending and administration, now restricted by terms of CVA, no way we can afford promotion. Hopefully the next few years will see us continue to stabilise and live within our income. Just appointed a new untried young manager, Michael Appleton, so fingers crossed things will go well for him.
