When journalist Richard Holledge began writing a weekly column in "The Times" in August 2002, charting the season of his beloved Pompey FC, he was expecting the usual mixture of elation, disappointment, high drama and base comedy typical of the 40 years in which he has supported one of Britain's less fashionable football clubs. Instead, Portsmouth headed straight to the top of Division One...and stayed there. And, just as Portsmouth's performances have made the rest of the football world sit up and take notice, Richard's column, "Life and Chimes", has attracted a cult following of soccer fans from all parts of the country. Witty and perceptive "Life and Chimes" examines a year in the life of a football club and its supporters. Like the team itself, "Life and Chimes" has enjoyed a heady journey round the grounds of Nationwide League Division One, taking in the likes of a Las Vegas hotel and a Portsmouth knicker shop along the way. It is a voyage of discovery that all football fans, and especially those of Pompey, should enjoy.
