‘Should be ashamed of himself’ – Plenty of fans react to 31-year-old Portsmouth star’s behaviour v Sunderland

Portsmouth’s season ended with a whimper this week as they were held 0-0 at Fratton Park in their play-off second leg.

They trailed 1-0 from the first match at the Stadium of Light, but a home goal of any type could have swung the tie in their favour.

The game promised much but in the end, delivered little. It was a testy affair between two sides trying harder not to get beat than to win. Marred by controversy, the Pompey crowd bringing shame on their side.

One of them was filmed kicking Luke O’Nien whilst he was down after he fell into the supporters, but another unsavoury video has also emerged featuring one of their players.

Brett Pitman is filmed running towards a ball boy, who you would imagine is a Pompey fan given that he’s at Fratton Park, mouthing expletives as he hurries him along.

The ball boy isn’t seen, but you’d imagine he is a child between the ages of 9 and 13, which makes the video incredibly unpleasant.

As you’d expect, fans have not reacted well to this latest slur on Pompey’s good name.



  1. I can’t understand why he wasn’t taking off he only scores when there is a penalty he must be a good friend of jackets we should have brought on Curtis I really don’t think jacket wanted us to go up looking at the team he chose why leave are top scorer on the bench who has scored against Sunderland before not playing him beats me looking at Doncaster they brought on strikers and went for it

  2. Pitman should be sold and buy someone that can Score the most important game in the season and jacket picks that team and not bothering to bring on subs sooner

  3. You have bad people in all sports. One incident I witnessed in the early 90s was at Elland Road, it was preseason and I had traveled down from Sunderland to do some work. Gordon Strachan was the manager then and as he was walking into the stadium,, a man with his 5/6-year-old little girl asked for his autograph, his answer was “f@%k off” and that is the manager.
