The year of our Lord 2013 may be but ten days old but still Portsmouth’s official 2013 calendar is now 75% out of date, with nine of the 12 players featured no longer playing for the penniless League One club…

Since being relegated from the Championship last season, Pompey’s threadbare squad has been pebble-dashed with loans, short-termers, trialists and youth players; 33 new faces arriving and 32 players leaving or reaching the end of their deals in the space of six months.

Given those depressing stats, we’re bloody impressed that the club’s calendar department even managed to get a 1/4 hit rate!

    @Elio. I have and it’s horrible. When my team were in that mess it was a depressing nightmare. I would normally hope that a club like this would survive for the fans, however I’m a Saints fan and when Southampton were in the same situation it was made worse by the Pompey lot wishing us into non-existence, therefore I don’t have any sympathy whatsoever. Excuse me while I reciprocate: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Who is laughing now! If ever a club deserve liquidation it’s Portsmouth.

    It’s a crap state to be in, wouldn’t wish it upon any other team, including them down the road, i was even a little disappointed when they got relegated, there’s no atmosphere like derby day, especially our derby.. the players may leave, the manager will change, the owners will bend us over, but the fans will not leave and we will never die

    I hope Portsmouth stick around until I finish uni in may. I might eat a lot of beans and pasta but they have David Connolly; its fantastic knowing I’m a student, yet have more money than a football club.
