A great Portsmouth win, unreal atmosphere but sorry about the problems

League football was back at Fratton Park – and Pompey fans had plenty to say about it on Twitter as ever – here’s a selection of those views.

Great way to start the season on the pitch. Sorry that the change in allowable attendance happened so abruptly, causing ticketing problems, long queues, and frustrating phone waits. We understand the thrill of victory and against the defeat of operations. #Pompey

How good was it watching an entertaining team that was aggressive from the first minute to the last. Danny Cowley’s Blues. #pompey

Loved being back at Fratton Park today, my first game since March last year. I felt choked up at kick off. #Pompey
