They are the Blue Army and Blue is his boy – Will Ferrell and Portsmouth were made for each other.

The comedic actor has clearly heard a lot about the Fratton Park faithful, as he was pictured there on Saturday afternoon to see Pompey take on Tranmere.

And in case fans accused the League One club of sitting on a Throne of Lies, they posted a picture of Ferrell taking in his surroundings on the south coast next to owner Michael Eisner and generally staying classy.

Of course, there were a few supporters of local rivals Southampton who couldn’t resist a cheeky joke at Portsmouth’s expense.

Looking for comedy inspiration. That’s a true pro for you.

Former Walt Disney chief executive Eisner took over at Fratton Park in 2017 and on Saturday morning Eisner’s son, Breck, posted a picture of him and Ferrell en route to the ground.

In 2018, when complaining about the atmosphere at Old Trafford, former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho used Fratton Park of a ground to try and emulate.

“It’s not Portsmouth. I remember Portsmouth – such a small stadium, the atmosphere was absolutely incredible,” he said. “In [Old Trafford], the atmosphere is a bit quiet and there is not very [much enthusiasm]. But the players like to play at home.”

In that case, talkSPORT hopes Ferrel, who owns MLS club LAFC, had a pretty nice little Saturday.
