BLAISE TAPP: The lifelong influence of our classroom leaders

Have your say

I totally enjoyed Sunday’s derby.

We were lucky enough to get tickets in The Chimes lounge and met up with many old friends to watch the game.

There was a cracking atmosphere all round but the match didn’t live up to its billing. Players looked nervous and more composure was needed from Pompey, but it was a fair result.

Shame a couple of people had to ruin it with disgusting comments aimed at the Southampton manager.

Remember, it’s a family game. Parents shouldn’t have to explain certain things to their kids when they’re at the football.

Why can’t we be more like rugby fans? Rivalry and banter before the game, then a drink to discuss it after.
