Get in there Avram!

Myself and Ben the Hat have always found a lot to admire about this man: the shirts, the jowls, the air of the Antwerp Diamond Dealer, and latterly the wife who, it transpires, drinks her own urine on the BBC Tel Aviv show that she hosts and says, when the Sun try to do a number on her husband for visiting a Thai establishment of dubious distinction on a Portsmouth industrial estate, ‘Of course he needs a massage at the end of the day. Having to manage that crappy club he probably needs two.’

Well done Pompey, what a brilliant saga; I only wish they were my team and that I was writing a book about them this season, it’d run to about 1000 pages.

    And they say the magic of the FA Cup is dead! All we need now is a proper fairy tale ending. I will, of course, be rooting for Avram (ahem, cough 🙂 ) and Pompey on the day. The only downside to all this success is that Avram may go upmarket to The City for a massage rather than stick to the parlour on the industrial estate.

    Talking of massage parlours on industrial estates…that has somewhat dulled the distinction between industry and the service sector. It seems that Maggie’s efforts have penetrated our society deeper than we thought.

    M le etc…

  2. Great result. Pity they were docked the 9 points. Strange that the FA punish a club by ensuring they lose even more money.

    Enjoy the final

    We will all be Pompey fans come Cup Final day \o/

    Not me. Another club welshing* on their debts and crying when it all catches up with them.

  5. Stephen Foster says:

    O sorry, let’s all support the club backed by the Russkie billionaire crook to win as usual then. [rolls eyes]

  6. markelt says:

    Why do you think I want Chelsea to win? It’s yet another game with a no-win outcome.

  7. Daftburger says:

    Exactly, maybe the author of this blog likes people who don’t pay their debts.

    Personally I don’t see how a team can be punished in the League are not punished in the Cup.

    Remember Leicester, the reason a points deduction was introduced, who went on to beat us in a play-off semi and were then promoted?

    Meanwhile other clubs play within the rules and it takes them a lot longer……. perhaps a metaphor for society………….

    pooroldpompey should have been booted out of the fa cup.

    penalty for playing players you can’t afford in the league – 9 pt deduction

    penalty for doing the same in the cup – 2 days out at wembley and a pot full of cash.

  9. Stephen Foster says:

    Ooh get you lot Grinch Grinch Grinch.

    So let’s get this right, if this was Stoke City or (snigger) Bournemouth that we were talking about you’d be standing up shouting:

    ‘No! We must not go to Wembley (twice). It’s not right. Financial probity comes first, last and always in football. I will never buy a ticket for this iniquitous match(es). I refuse to watch it on telly. We have no right to be there. I RESIGN MY FANDOM!’

    Sure you would.

  10. OS says:

    winger, it looks like only me and thee can put aside the sinnisism and think of the people who aktewally matter – the supporters. I have little doubt that Pompey will take a thrashing at Wembley, but at least their supporters can go to the depths on a great away day at the home of nogger.

    I reckon the miserable sods: Eli, Daftbugger and Neptune need a massage. Wot dust thee think? 😉


  11. Stephen Foster says:

    It’s always somewhat disappointing when persons you otherwise respect and admire turn into a Battalion of Mr Beans from the Academy of Accounting. It lets you know life has taught you nothing, really.

  12. Daftburger says:

    OS and winger it’s called having morals and principles, something you two vagabonds and cads know nowt about!

    You’re talking to someone who actually anner* bin to the Brit since Super Tone came back!

    *I’ve been twice this season, with free tickets, but they lost both so they don’t count as they re-inforced my reasons for not going! 😉

    As the massage parlour lady said Pulit Out! 😛

  13. markelt says:

    Has it not occurred to you pair of bubblewits that it’s the fans of the clubs who’ve not spent money they don’t have who are missing out on Wembley? Bollocks to Pompey and all their fans, especially that *glove with the bell.

  14. Stephen Foster says:

    * Wibble, wibble *

    Pulis has spent about £60 million he DOSE have but has it not occurred to you that he’s still not at Wembley because that takes special-ness and great jowls, not a baseball cap.

  15. markelt says:

    Here’s how it goes. You are offered a huge advance on your next novel, which you accept but it turns out they never had the money, they’ve just done it to attract you from another publisher who can. The published novel is shortlisted for a prize, seeing as it’s very good, much better than they could afford, but you haven’t been paid what they said. Bet you’d be cheering that publisher on at the awards as well wouldn’t you and balls to the publisher that was running a sound business?

    Bollocks to Pompey and all who sail with them.

  16. Stephen Foster says:

    Bloody hell fire I never knew you were such a Civil Servant.

    Your analogy fails at …huge advance. Plus which, in the analogy I have to be an unpaid footballer. Diddums.

    And I can tell you for sure that publishers are as dodgy as hell and say things to authors like, ‘Sshh, pls don’t tell your agent you saw this – it’s the only bleedin way we can keep afloat…’

  17. markelt says:

    It’s not just footballers who go unpaid. They always get bailed out by the League and PFA. It’s the other poor sods who get screwed, including people like the St Johns Ambulance. If they can’t stay within their means, fuck em.

  18. Stephen Foster says:

    * If they can’t stay within their means, fuck em. *

    You want to close down Man U & Liverpool? [I know…]

    Or, oh, hold on, is “managed” debt okay and an honourable exception to “living within your means”…?

  19. Daftburger says:

    Is the Labour Party managing ‘our’ debt or should the country be put into administration and be relegated (well we are on our way down (C) Lordeffinghamhunt) or are you going to cheer them on to a famous ‘FA Cup’ hung parliament victory?

  20. Stephen Foster says:

    The debt is a Global Phenomenon. It has nothing to do with Gordon, per se, apart, that is, from his valiant efforts in Saving the World of it : )

  21. Daftburger says:

    It’s amazing how many people forget that in its hour of need Gordon saved the world, made it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race.. 😀

  22. markelt says:

    Of course it is. Or don’t you have a mortgage?

  23. OS says:

    You can’t just jump off the bloody world, daftbugger, even though you’ve done your best re SCFC and only get back on when you can get a free ride. And you talk about morals! 😉

    Gordon is doing his best to keep GB PLC clinging to the remnants of Maggies remains. It’s not easy when you’re a God fearing socialist amongst Etonian skullduggery and a bunch of Faginistic and licentious bstards.

    Power to the people and Pulis out! 🙂


  24. Stephen Foster says:

    I’m thinking of putting a picture of ‘Arry up and doing him a glowing testimonial.

    A read of that in the morning and grey man could probably do without his double espresso : )

  25. markelt says:

    Last word freak 🙂

  26. Daftburger says:

    Yes he’s the bastard son of the aristocracy (Maggie) who was left a fortune and is clinging on to his last pennies after selling the family silver………why am I bothering to reply other than to say basically he’s fucked this country. Revenge for Culloden methinks…… 😉

    I want to vote conservative but my candidate is an agent woman…….I such a confused bigot! 😀

  27. Stephen Foster says:

    By all means Vote Conservative. But only if you want to get banned off this blog.
