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.

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

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!

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.
