Uefa cup fixtures - confirmed

Uefa cup fixtures - confirmed

With the draw made earlier today, we knew that we would face Milan, Heerenveen, Braga and Wolfsburg in group E - we now know where we go and when!

We will face Milan and Heerenveen at Fratton, with our away European tours continuing in Portugal - again - with a trip to Braga, which is close to GuimarĂ£es and Germany to face Wolfsburg.

These are the dates, and venues, the games will take place - sadly no San Siro visit for Pompey - according to the Pompey Site...

Thursday, October 23: Braga (A)
Thursday, November 27: AC Milan (H)
Thursday, December 4: Wolfsburg (A)
Wednesday, December 17: Heerenveen (H)

So, there we go fellas, first stop last week Portugal, next up... well, Portugal again and then Germany - so who fancies one of both of these trips...

Sadly no San Siro? I'm not upset about having to play Milan at home, they should be the strongest of the lot so i'd much rather play them at home than away. At FP we've a chance against anyone. It would of course be nice to visit the San Siro but if we've only one crack at them lets have it where we've got our best chance. Next season the group stages change to home and away legs so we can hopefully go there next season.

Well, we are going again. 2 more road trips but still gutted it's not Milan. I wish I hadn't got mu hopes up. Apologies for the confusion, bl00dy beeb & sultana websites.

All these matches welcome as they are, are squuezed in between many winnable league games. Something will have to give over the 8 week period.

Fantastic AC Milan at home, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Dida....all on Fratton soil! Even better that all our season ticket holders can see it aswell. In my opinion, better to get them at home but away.

Yes there is that P4M, i'm only miffed because for a while I believed we had got the mother of away games & no we havn't.
07/10/2008 14:40:00
Dida is no longer the no. 1 goalkeeper at AC Milan, I think. But, considering it's a cup game, there is chance he would be played. Fortunately, Gattuso, Ronnie, Kaka all make the difference

I would love to go on an away leg. The Portugal one is too close to sort out any sort of finances so I will look to Wolfsberg for any chance. Just glad we got AC at Fratton so all the fans can enjoy that one! We will need our supporters voices then!
07/10/2008 15:17:00
It's a shame we're not going to the San Siro but it's the tie that I was dreaming of the minute we lifted the cup. I can't wait.
07/10/2008 15:18:00
Got flights and hotels booked in Wolfsburg! Now just the issue of getting a ticket, I think we're only guaraneed 1500 due to their capacity, hopefully they'll chuck us a few more :-)
