Portsmouth Football Club were a relatively large club in the early 21st century, they had won an FA cup and cemented themselves in the Premier League, right from their promotion in 2002 up until their spectacular fall in 2009, when the club went in to administration, lost their key players and, not long after, succumbed to relegation to the Championship.

Following their fall to the second tier, they lost even more players and no longer looked like a club that once boasted names such as Kevin-Prince Boateng, David James, Peter Crouch and Glen Johnson. They looked like a club that would struggle in their league, and struggle they did, after a second season in the Championship, they dropped another level.
Now in nPower League 1, Portsmouth continue to suffer financially, whilst many suggest they could see their second consecutive relegation, but Pompey fans deny these claims. It seems like only a miracle can save this club from sinking without a trace.
