Lassana Diarra has joined the growing band of Pompey players talking up our chances of winning the FA cup this weekend, but his thoughts were slightly difference than those of others.
He, like several of our current squad does already have a cup winner medal, although he has told the Pompey Site that should he win another on Saturday with us it will be extra special: 'I wouldn't say that we'll necessarily win this game just because we are in the Premier League and they are in the Championship.
'If they are in the final then they are obviously a good side, which is why we have to respect them and play our best football. If we do that though, then we can win.
'Last year I won the cup with Chelsea and this year I hope to win it again. I'm ready for this game and I feel good.
'Pompey haven't won a cup for a long, long time and this is why this year we want to win it for the fans.
'If we do win then it will definitely be very special for me.'
Another thing that I picked up on, well maybe even read between the lines of were his thoughts about our future, which did not seem to imply that he was thinking of moving on at all - maybe I was doing exactly that, reading between the lines? Maybe not: 'we have a good squad with good players and we're looking to win things and keep on improving every year.
'I'm very happy at Pompey. It's been really good here and everyone's been good with me and helped me to feel at home.'
Since this the French international is quoted as saying that he will be with Pompey next season!
Lets just hope that he is a man of his word eh...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
