The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

I AM sure I am not alone in be­ing de­lighted at the way things have worked out for Portsmouth Foot­ball Club. When we played at Frat­ton Park last week­end there was un­cer­tainty as to how things would un­fold this week.

To know that the sup­port­ers can now take their club for­wards is a huge re­lief for them. Theirs is sure to be a sweet rel­e­ga­tion this sea­son if there can be such a thing.

Yes they will awake in League Two next sea­son. But they will be a mas­sive club at their level and af­ter all their up­heaval, it will not be a sur­prise if they emerge to fight back strongly with a pro­mo­tion next sea­son.

The size of the club alone will at­tract top play­ers for their level and we all know just how strongly sup­port­ers’ clubs have per­formed in th­ese sit­u­a­tions.
