And one topic in particular has dominated discussions…
While the five changes from Friday’s Papa John’s Trophy victory over Exeter has also lifted spirits.
Record-breaking Ronan Curtis, Robertson, Reeco Hackett, Michael Jacobs, and Louis Thompson all come into the side at Abbey Stadium.
Here’s how Pompey fans reacted on Twitter following the team-news announcement.
