    Pompey through to 5th round!

    Yes, Saints are the scum or scummers. So called 'cos their scab dockyard workers broke the lines of a strike at Pompey dockyard in the 20's. the union they belonged to was Southern County Union Members, hence SCUM. Now you boys up there love a strike so you should be on our side. I remember being stuck in liverpool City Centre for hours while your firefighters were striking in sympathy for a sacked communist from Notty Ash or where ever, while trying to visit Royal Insurance at Puzzle Palace Sand castle.
