The Smell of Football

"To me I’m just one of the crowd, one of the fans, who just loves his club."

John Westwood supports Portsmouth Football Club and follows them home and away. On a typical match day his persona transforms from a quiet bookseller into loud, confident super fan. At a time when football is seemingly all about money, success and glamour, John embraces Portsmouth’s financial troubles as an opportunity to show what football is really about. That football is about the nostalgia. About history. About being part of community. It’s when backs are against the wall and knowing where you stand.

"My religion is Portsmouth football club."
