Pompey face United in the cup

Pompey face United in the cup

The draw for the Quarter Finals of the FA cup has been made, and this has only gone and seen us drawn against United - even worse it is taking place at Old Trafford.

With Liverpool and Arsenal both going out in the last round the cup opened up even more for us, and of course everyone else, and we are now just a possible 90 minutes away from the first of what we would hope to be two trips to Wembley between now and May - trouble is we have to beat United to do this even once...

Few would 'expect' us to win but I guess the positive we must now take from this is if we really do want to win it we have to beat the best - I just wish we could have avoided United and definitely at Old Trafford!

Remember though, positive thinking fellas on our day - even though there have not been that many in the past few months in all honesty - we can beat anyone...

I just pray that 'if' we do go out we do not get another United v Chelsea final!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

We never have any luck in Cup draws only games so lets hope that is true again. It is a hard blow to draw United away AGAIN!! Three times in 6 seasons.

On this day in history...20th September

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 20th September.

More Reliable Than A League 1 Octopus? (20/9/17)

Time for the special computer that crunches the numbers to determine the final League One positions for the season of 2017/18.

Roberts opens up

In fairness when Gary Roberts - obviously now at Wigan - says Kenny Jackett showed 'a lack of respect' towards him in the final weeks of his Pompey career it's hard to disagree.

Next in (the firing) line

Of course, Huddersfield loanee Holmes-Dennis is out for the season after suffering ligament damage now - having initially had to sit behind Haunstrup - McCrory has a twisted knee.
