Pompey: The Island City with a Football Club for a Heart (Paperback)

£9.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Neil Allen's account of an unforgettable season at Portsmouth is told with the same passion as the Sunday Times bestseller 100 Years of Leeds United and Netflix's Sunderland 'Til I Die.





At the start of the 2019-20 League One season, award-winning sports reporter Neil Allen set out to follow the fortunes of a team in the hunt for promotion. By the time it came to an end, the football almost felt like an afterthought.







Covering the highs and lows of a season like no other, Allen offers an exclusive insight into a club and a fanbase that has known more hardship than most, exploring the vital role a football club plays when the football is taken away.







Given unparalleled access, Allen interviews current players and club legends, the fans who saved the club in 2013 and those now tasked with ensuring its survival. The essential profile of Portsmouth Football Club, its fans and its recent history.
