The last 2 games show what we, as fans, can do.

On Saturday I think we played a huge part in cheering the players forward after Hurst was sent off and this must have a positive effect on the team. When a player is cheered and encouraged they will often dig deep to find that extra ounce of effort that so often gives the edge.

Last Saturday the SUFC fans kept going all night, certainly the best away support I have witnessed and I include Southampton away and Doncaster away in that as they were both euphoria and support in adversity; last night we went 1-0 down very early and the incredibly vocal support a) helped the players keep it at that score and b) again, after going down to 10, drove them forward to get the 2 goals.

Pompey are renowned for having passionate and vocal fans. The 775-odd fans - cracking effort on a Tuesday and may have topped 800 if the A3 had been open - outsung them.

Top, top effort.

Now lets keep it going. We CAN be the 12th man.

Blue Army!
