Could the dream of every Pompey fan really come true? Living within our means, the club owned locally by supporters?

But how much money can a half-full 20,000-seat stadium generate? Are we destined to always be a League One club?

We’ve had our moments in the sun, we’ve enjoyed the superstar players and Wembley with Harry at the helm. But deep down we knew it couldn’t last.

Now all I long for is stability and I can’t wait for the Football Focus feature on how a proper football club should be run, regardless of the league we’re in.
