Next up it is Niko Kranjcar who told sky sports what winning the FA cup with Pompey meant to him: 'it was a great honour to come to Pompey and win the FA Cup.
'It's a great moment in the club's history and I am very happy for myself and the team.'
Not immediately at the time, but a while later he also reflected on his own position with Pompey, following intense speculation that his future could be somewhere other than with Pompey next season...
Although he has again refused to rule out a move - which is fair enough given his reasons - he is happy where he is and would not go to just any old team: 'I don't want to go anywhere, I'm very happy. Obviously playing in Europe is a big chance for me.
'I'd be crazy if I said I wasn't tempted by the calls of big clubs because everyone wants to achieve the most in their career and play Champions League football and win more trophies.
'But I'm very happy at Portsmouth, especially after this win. You can only be happy and next season will only get better. Playing European football is another reason why I'm happy here.
'I'm not in a hurry to go anywhere, I'm 24 this summer and I'm looking ahead to the European Championships and having a great year.
'What the new season brings no-one knows yet but I'm happy at Portsmouth and it's a great place to be at the moment.'
As I have said all the long with the speculation that has build, if any move were in the best interests of the club it would happen, but as only a small band of clubs could offer him more than what we can he should not be in a hurry to move on, and he is not - like most of our players!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
