Fair play Pompey were deserving of the win today but what's with their weird obsession about our fans? We have the largest home and away following in the league... get over it

2-0 was a very lucky escape for Sunderland today. Could have been 6. Outclassed in every position and played off the park by Pompey. Back to winning ways next week...I hope. #SAFC

@realmikemorton

Not only the goal but all-round Burgess was incredible today. He was positionally excellent, made key tackles, dominant in the air, calm with the ball and is commanding #Pompey’s back four. Take a bow my MOTM @Burgey44

@puckdropuk

Phil Parkinson coming straight from the Jack Ross and Derek Adams school of a complete lack of humility when their team gets completely outplayed at Fratton Park. You love to see it #Pompey #safc

@FFSChristie

Pompey just wanted it waaaaay more than us today #safc

Imagine travelling over 300 miles with a flare in your pocket, just to throw it on the pitch after a 2-0 loss

@ClemFF3

Imagine thinking that Gooch is better than Curtis. Sunderland fans and their delusion is just pure comedy #safc #pompey

@FourOneTwice

Cracking result vs #SAFC. Fortress Fratton continues to strengthen. Hope the Sunderland lad isn't seriously hurt and hope for a speedy recovery #Pompey
