FRUSTRATED fans made their feelings known in a vocal protest outside Fratton Park.

Before Saturday’s match more than 100 of the Pompey faithful filled Frogmore Road to chant slogans such as ‘Chainrai out!’ and ‘Pompey is in the wrong hands!’, as pictured.

Organised by campaign group SOS Pompey, the demonstration was in response to what fans see as a lack of communication and transparency from the club’s owners, and the fact that no new players were signed during the recent transfer window.

Protest organiser Bob Beech said: ‘They have made no secret of the fact they are looking to sell as soon as possible. But if Pompey drops a division it is going to be even harder for them to get a good price. It sounds like at the moment they are trying to sell a clapped out MOT failure for Rolls-Royce money; but the club needs some care and attention to get it back into decent shape, and we are worried they are not loving owners.’
