Neil Allen's account of an unforgettable season at Portsmouth is told with the same passion as the Sunday Times bestseller 100 Years of Leeds United and Netflix's Sunderland 'Til I Die.

In 2013, in the midst of financial turmoil, on the brink of expulsion from the Football League and liquidation, the Pompey Supporters' Trust seized ownership of their club.

Four seasons later, on the back of promotion to League One, the fans sold their stake to former Disney CEO Michael Eisner. 'We Will Never Die' had been the battle-cry of the faithful. Now they were striving for more than mere survival.

Given unparalleled access, Allen watches team and management alike as they bid to secure promotion back to the Championship. But the battles on the pitch are only part of the story. Portsmouth FC takes you inside a club like no other.
