Saints fans are starting to realise how difficult it’s going to be to get to Fratton Park for their game in December. It appears its going to be a ‘bubble’ match, that means they MUST travel by coach; in fact their match tickets will only be handed out on the coach.

They’re not the first by any means; ask the fans of the Bristol clubs or the Welsh clubs or Blackburn or Burnley. It can happen to any of us.

If you can get to Portsmouth tomorrow (Thursday) evening the FSF Watching Football Is Not A Crime event (here) at the Rifle Club, Goldsmith Ave. is an ideal opportunity to come along and ask questions.

The panel includes Supt. Rick Burrows who runs the policing of St Marys and Fratton Park and Alan Kerslake, the Chair of the south west region of the Football Safety Officers Association who happens to be SO at Cardiff City who have experienced 34 ‘bubble’ games.

The evening is being hosted by Alan McLoughlin of Pompey, Saints and the Republic of Ireland fame.

There will also be a couple of legal brains who specialize in fighting injustices.

Whatever your club, whatever your question, you will be welcome at the Rifle Club, just 300 yards from Fratton station. Admission is free and if you pre-register then the first drink is free as well!
