Speaking on sky sports a whole host of Pompey players heaped praise on Harry Redknapp following our cup win at the weekend.
Most one of them had a good word or two to say about the 'gaffer', but most importantly were delighted with our winning the cup, including Glen Johnson: 'he has giving us the belief at the start.
'Everyone dreams of playing in a final and our dream has come true.'
For Sylvain Distin it was the team effort, which starts from the top though - this cup win also vindicated his move to Pompey in his eyes: 'the whole team, the whole squad, we all graft and work hard for each other. For me it has been fantastic.
'I came here for a challenge and I have got it. It can't ask for anything more.'
Lassana Diarra, who has committed his future to Pompey maintained his unbeaten FA cup record - we should have known we would win with him playing: 'it was a good game. They deserved to be here. We played our football, but the most important thing is that we won.'
The madman of the side Hermann Hreidarsson now finally has his hands on a cup winners medal, and with it a fitting end to what has been an outstanding season for him when little, or none expected a fraction of what we got from him: 'it's been a long time coming. We've been waiting for this game for a while, we fancied our chances but it's a massive relief to have won it.
'They played well, but we had a few chances and got 1-0 up.'
Asked if it was his greatest achievement in football to date he said: 'by a mile. It's fantastic.'
I think we can all safely say the same, and echo most, if not all of the thoughts shared here by all...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
