Poor turn-out for Victory parade

I'm sure Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man U are laughing at us today,first Pompey churlishly win the cup, and then only a couple of hundred thousand could be bothered to see the upstarts parade the cup through the City streets.

The fans have let the club down again, we should withdraw from the Uefa cup immeadiately and let one of the bigger clubs take our place.

Pompey fans hang your heads in shame!

...and another thing, the Pompey & Cardiff fans should be ashamed for being so raucous - where's their sense of decorum. Fancy singing throughout the Cup Final - whatever next?
well done pompey as an Arsenal fan I am deligthed to see our old boy's win the FA cup with your club and it was about time that one of the so called smaller clubs won the trophy, at least your fans sing in support of theyr team win or loose. Best of luck in europe and see you in the prem next season.
wot a game watchd by millions evrywer im sure!!! aham! neways happy for lassana nd glen!!
Shame these 10s of thousands cant be bothered to come when we're struggling to sell out a 20k ground.
oh, only 1/4 million? thats...hold on *checks 2001 census*;y 70 000 more than the population of portsmouth! really? where have all our "supporters" gone? (although it is a shame we cant sell out 20 000 every game...)
Not a tine to be cynical pc but I agree. This is a time to rejoice the greatest footballing momemt of our lives. After 30+ years in a 4 divisions I witness us winning the FA Cup at Wembley & the parade to the seafront. You may have seen a grown man cry. I am emotionally wrecked. Forever Pompey.
Proud weekend for any Pompey fan, I firmly believe a bigger ground would see an average around 25,000, the bigger games would get 30+, but todays turnout showed the depth of support in the City and surrounding areas
By the way, I loved a very drunk Chixs' blue hair!
Time for a new stadium me feels.
Know i'm setting myself up for abuse here but as a saints fan just want to grudgingly congratulate you for yesterday.
Hey l73, thanks for coming over and saying so. Yep, it's time for us to bask in our glory!!
Well done Pompey, see you in Europe, enjoy the cup and your time in the sun.
Oops, just realised this article was ironic
At least you're getting a feckin parade, win the CL and we ain't!
other clubs fans congratulating us means a lot. especially from...southhampton fans...
Have both the Southampton fans congratulated us?
i would like to thank all the fans of various clubs who have come on to congratulate us - and there were loads and loads on articles that have probably disappeared off the main screen now - thanks guys!
what an incredible victory parade it was, i got pretty emotional and thought i was going to go but held it together - were going forward even further now guys, hold onto your hats!
Lateralus, that's sporting of you and no, you won't get a load of abuse from us mate.
Is anyone able to share their pics from Wembley and yesterday? I only had my rubbish camera phone at wembley so pics r not that good! Then I was too tired to make the trip down yest for the Parade. A disapointing display ion my part!
Sneakay, I've got a good one of you, UKTony, Gill and Evie at Wembley Park with the stadium in the background. PM me your email address and I'll send it over to you. Also a few crowd scenes but most just a blur of blue and white flags!
Well done the lads, think the whole club did themselves proud this weekend. Just my luck, having waited 38 years as a fan to get to Wembley I lost my voice on Friday, so the singing was quite a muted affiar. Great down at the common yesterday, what an atmosphere. Back up to Wembley on the 10th August as well. Stonking!! Proud to be Blue.
Great, i could only get to watch it on TV, due to a wedding (dont ask.... who has a wedding on FA Cup final day!!!!) but was so proud that we could only hear our fans singing, not because cardiff were not but because we were so loud!!! Awesome, Play up Pompey!
I have one of Chix's blue mop too. Will post in Albums when I get the chance.
Marvelous turn out feel ashamed I could not make it myself,but watched it on sky sports news all afternoon.
What a day, what a weekend! It shows that there is the latent support around the city, and there is enough interest to get a few more in the stadium every week. Hopefully this will help, as will European football, and when we get the new stadium, I think we'll start to fill it.
Wembley tickets, 125. Train tickets to London 38. Cancelled holiday 360. Special edition Pompey shirt 45. Programme, tenner. FA Cup flag - free of charge. Winning the FA Cup PRICELESS.
