He's not annoying at all. He's just very passionate about his team. He actually came across really well on the interview and his shop looks great. Proper bookshop with lots of nooks and crannies to explore!

Johnny-Come-Lately who regularly annoys the fans around him shouting offensive nonsense.

And I say that as someone who knows a lot of Pompey fans and has spent 90 minutes within clear ear shot of him.

TBF Callis he was jumping on the roof of the Cobbold boxes in 2003. Not sure if the Johnny Come Lately tag applies here.

I imagine bumping into him at a service station half cut already at 11am on a Saturday is a great laugh when you only have to say hello to him and pose for a selfie. When you have to hear the drunken nonsense he shouts for 90+ minutes a week it's not so much fun.

I asked my Pompey mate who’s sat near him for years to explain better than I can why he’s awful. C+P but here you all go...

“He thinks he's the voice of the fans but what he actually is is the voice of the worst kind of fans, the kind who openly believe that football is exclusively for working class white men. He'll spend half the match shouting about why he hates the PC brigade, despite going completely unchecked when he sings songs about why women and kids shouldn't be allowed in the ground because 'Portsmouth is a geezer's club'. He constantly sings both mysoginistic and homophobic songs (recently 'you're just a gay pink poof','does your boyfriend know you're here' and 'is he a man or a woman? Does he have a dick or a fanny?' all because a goalkeeper was wearing pink). He'll rant about muslims being terrorists and make constant comments about black players ('He should be quick, he's used to running away from lions' etc). He's an obnoxious piece of sh1t who is loathed by the majority of fans but is tolerated by the club because if they ban him then he becomes a martyr for his gang of idiot cronies. All this on top of the fact he never sees the first 15-20 minutes of any match because he's in the pub and then spends the whole time he's there basically calling other fans johnny come latelies and part-time fans (despite the fact the Fratton end is 100% season ticket holders). And finally he kills the atmosphere by ringing his bell and getting his drummer mate to just sing stupid 'lalalalala' songs, which instantly drowns out any attempts at singing new songs. If anyone wants to start a new song they basically have to get his approval.”

I'm sure if half of that was true he'd have been banned by now.

If not why has your mate not reported this to authorities?

So why then is he still allowed to go to football? Surely someone would/should have reported him?

I have no idea TBH. Last time I was near him at a Portsmouth game at least 3 people told him to shut up when he went off on one of his nonsense rants.

Above joking aside I don’t doubt that he’s a tw*t (and have first hand experience of him and his pals coming in a pub I worked in a number of years ago), however the idea that Portsmouth allow one of the most recognisable football supporters in the country to spout racist/homophobic abuse unchecked does seem a touch far fetched...
