Pompey: The Island City with a Football Club for a Heart [9781785786693]

(1 review) Write a Review
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.

AUTHOR: Neil Allen is The News' chief sports reporter covering Portsmouth Football Club. He has won the award for Regional Sports Journalist of the Year at the British Sports Journalism Awards two years running. He is the author of Played Up Pompey (2015), Played Up Pompey Too (2017) and Played Up Pompey Three (2020).

Ian Darke is one of the best-known voices in sport, commentating on football for BT Sport and ESPN. He was born in Portsmouth and has supported the club since the age of six.
