Sunday’s EFL Trophy final will go down as one of the most entertaining games of the season.
From Sunderland fans taking over London prior to the game itself, Portsmouth’s dramatic penalty shootout win was one of the most memorable Wembley cup finals in years, and almost certainly the most exciting EFL Trophy game in the history of the competition.
Shortly after Portsmouth’s win, though, a petition began doing the rounds on social media titled: ‘Winners of Checkatrade trophy to get Europa league spot’, with a goal of 1,000 signatures.
Although the petition hasn’t reached the goal yet and hasn’t gone as viral as the ‘Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU’ petition that is now at 6 million signatures, Portsmouth fans had some fans reacting to the over the top petition.
The reaction was large enough that the official Portsmouth Twitter account tweeted out the petition for Pompey fans to sign it.
Here are some of the reactions from Portsmouth fans to the petition…
Imagine a league 2 team winning the trophy, getting relegated to the National league and getting through to the group stages
