Pompey: Bitches gettin’ PAAAAAIIIIIIIDDD!!!
Having traipsed 350 miles across the country for their League One match against Portsmouth on Saturday, Carlisle were shocked to find that it was going to cost them a further £20 for the privilege of parking their team bus outside Fratton Park.
Carlisle paid the fee but only after boss Greg Abbott bemoaned Pompey’s “sob story”, with a beleaguered Pompey spokesman sighing that the situation was “completely out of their control,” as the land outside the ground was not owned by the club – there’s a surprise – but by >administrators acting on behalf of former owner Alexandre Gaydamak.
We can only imagine the showers in the Fratton Park changing rooms also run on a 20p meter and there is a small service charge for usage of club oxygen while breathing stadium air during matches.
Portsmouth are currently nine points adrift of safety at the bottom of League One, with a ten-point deduction pending for entering administration (for the third time in two years) during the current season.
Jesus Christi, what a omnishambles.
