Nice to see Pompey fans have a bit of sympathy for us.

http://thepompeychimes.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=78995

Our beloved red neighbours down the M4 far less so.

https://www.otib.co.uk/index.php?/topic/210808-trouble-up-the-m4/

There really are too many football fans that really do lack any sort of intelligence or decency aren't there?

I had a brief look at the City forum there, one fan just posting 'haha etc' and another saying he went to college with a load of mouthy STFC fans and that's some kind of justifiable reason for it being acceptable if we go bust.

I don't want any football club to go bust (Franchise I could probably make an exception), that's not really how it works. You win and lose on the pitch, not in a bankruptcy court.

The pompey fans show much more class (in general, I'm fully aware not ALL the City fans are degenerates and some come across well)

Absolutely BO.

TBH most Pompey fans I know are far more intelligent and empathetic about the situation anyway than fans of the 82ers.

Don't think for a second they'd be as generous if the thread was about Southampton rather than us. It's just the rather tiresome rivalry stuff that some people take waaay too seriously.

I think a lot depends on whether you have experienced it or not, Pompey have been in the serious shit in recent years so possibly understand, how many City supporters who post on internet forums remember 1982.

Similarly up here a lot of Wigan supporters were absolute bastards about what was happening at Bolton, they are much less gobby now!

And to think I could have supported them from the 70ís.

Memories play funny tricks but, if I'm not mistaken, I recall Pompey fans making monkey noises at Kammy shortly after he'd signed for us.  That behaviour was not so uncommon in those days.  I was still shocked.  

Looking back, it's an appalling reason for my shock but I had presumed he'd be spared anything more than a gentle ribbing on account of his having been such a great player.  Although racism hasn't exactly left our sport, we have, thank God, come a hell of a long way.

I don't remember any racist chants only Pompey fans causing havoc in the Townend in the late 70's and 80's

I remember both. As a teenager, I was shit scared of those rough naval chaps, who on a couple of occasions invaded the pitch from the station bank end to take the town end. Although many look back at these times with fondness, it was actually quite scary at times. The racist chants were frequent at all grounds and Pompey fans were particularly vitriolic towards Kammy, who was a very exciting talent and I believe the first black player to play for us.

Not convinced we have come very far, albeit the conduit for football fans to be racist has changed somewhat.

the world has got a long way to go.

The game Call Of Duty has a bug where everyone at the end of a game can hear everyone else. it's a free for all of racism and abuse, many are British.

They may have booed him but (hopefully) that was only because he had played for them

This (lengthy) article supports your point and concludes with a quite distinct "court case" that saw a racial abuser of Ian Wright escape criminal conviction.
