runner Posted December 8, 2004 Share Posted December 8, 2004 See he has left Pompey for Southampton. He will now be literally a "hated" figure in Portsmouth. This got me thinking about the differences between UK fans and fans of North American sports franchises, in the UK fans hate what they deem as treachourous moves, i.e going to the arch rivals. Remember the abuse Sol Campbell got when he moved from Spurs to Arsenal, now Rednapp will face the music from Portsmouth fans because he is now manager of their rivals Southampton....can anyone think of any occasions where similar moves in Canada or the US have stirred up such emotion?
