Quite unprofessional comments from Pompey's Gareth Evans:

‘It’s a strange comment from a strange manager'

‘Bizarre. He’s obviously got a bit of a vendetta against Portsmouth for some reason, perhaps that’s because last season we won the league and he didn’t.


Also a good comment to fire up Bradford ahead of tonights game:

‘I watched Bradford against Shrewsbury on TV last week and the pitch was shambolic, it hasn’t changed since I was there,’ said Evans. ‘The run of form they’ve had since the turn of the year is horrific, they have completely blown up.'

Pompey 'powers' and fans are completely obsessed about winning the title last season.

I think it was brilliant how they nipped all of us at the post if I'm honest, but I've never felt suicidal about it, has anyone else?

I honestly forgot they won the title until they started chanting 'championes'.

The aim was always to get out of league 2 by any means. Title would have been a bonus but that's all.

It would be interesting whether the Portsmouth fans sang all the same songs when they played Doncaster, because Doncaster really did throw away being Champions.

Strange how, 10 years ago, they won the FA cup but, here they are, getting all bent out of shape about (just) winning the League 2 champions trophy. Maybe they got some silver polish that was getting a bit old so they are getting their money's worth. How aspirations change.

It was an indication of how different Clubs view each other. I was also one of those that had actually forgotten the way last Season ended until hearing the Campiones chant. It's obviously up there as a major achievement on their part but not one that 'rankles' any Greens I've chatted to.

This Seasons story has far outweighed the last one. People will remember this more than the less than one hour they spent at the top of the bottom division. I was hoping for some creative chanting reminding them that we'd gone from bottom dead ducks to them hoping to win just to go 2 points above us.

Pompey in places, is a good City, but, my goodness, they don't half have a chip on their shoulders up there.

I love how DA publicly plays such a calm and calculated game with the media, a real poker face but there's always a tactic there and you get the impression everything he does is measured and by design. He winds people up such as Steve Evans and now Gareth Evans (something in the name??) whilst remaining the cool professional.

In terms of the league, i was gutted at the time and would rather Donny won it if we couldn't but we got promotion and that's that.

Imagine being outshone by Southampton and Bournemouth? I know we are, but geography makes it more palatable. :greensmile:

I reckon it's about Derek Adams 4-0 Pompey.

He seems to get them every time we play them and their fans fall for it every time :lol:

I have a girl friend, who lives just outside Southampton.

She has clearly described the rivalry between the two sides to me often.

Maybe it IS hatred ?

She has been to Home Park and The Brit on Match Days with me.

Her and the late Big Mike P were great mates !!

Some of her friends have NOT moved house when the occasion has arisen - WHY ?

Because the new house had a PO postal code !!

That hurts them.

Keep the Faith :scarf:

Adams is a terrific manager but his post match comments are very regularly disingenuous to put it mildly - I am not surprised other teams get wound up, we got wound up when we were doing badly and he said we deserved to win every game, but whatever, if it works, it works.

We did :)

For the comments, Evans is one of our more passionate players, so not surprised he came out with the comments. He's taken on the fans dislike of Southampton, so I'm sure he's done the same with Argyle.
