Portsmouth FC: Not Much Left In Our Size
Nothing like getting to a Harrods 50% off shoe sale late, when the hardcores have been at it for an hour and folks are getting desperate. Part “pin the tail on the donkey”, part rodeo, women and children are no longer guaranteed safety first. You know the drill.
Seeing Portsmouth FC’s upcoming season line-up on their website has left us with a sense of post-sale ennui. Much like discovering there are only clodhopper sizes in your favourite S/S butterfly Miu Mius when you know that lanky chick at the cash desk has smuggled the last pair in a human size behind the counter for herself, our emotions have transitioned into disbelief.
We’ve been contemplating if the club’s official Web site is just joshin’ with us or not, though after seeing Daniel Taylor’s tweet, we’re now creeping into the depression/regret/angst phase. While we’d rather say it ain’t so, we think this first team photo is legit.
Still, like every epic shoe sale there’s pros and cons to both of these situs:
Pro: The squad does have at least 11 players to field a starting squad/With annual sales, there’s always next year.
Con: Unfortunately, a goalkeeper doesn’t seem to be included in that mix as of yet / Annual sales only occur once a year. Damn you tall bish with the employee discount.
Chin up, Pompey supporters!
