Histon or Swansea... maybe!

Histon or Swansea... maybe!

Our defence of the FA cup, yep that is Portsmouth Football Club's defence, although despite the shockingly poor coverage we have received as such and the fact that the media bandwagon are intent on portraying it as 'Harry Redknapp's FA cup defence' will continue at Fratton 'if' we overcome Bristol City in our 3rd round replay a week Tuesday.

If we do get through, and I pray we do, then the winner of the Histon and Swansea game awaits - although that is a game that had to be rearranged and 'if' not settled on its rearranged date then the 4th round meeting with whoever will have to be rescheduled.

Hopefully, to keep it simple - and fit in with my own pre-booked travel plans - we can win, Histon and Swansea can sort out their game at the first time of asking and we can have a game on the Saturday anytime from 3pm onwards, win and move into round 5, easy in theory...

Well, Redknapp will continue 'his defence' at Old Trafford again in round 4, providing Manyoo beat Scum today of course - a rare occasion where I will want Manyoo to win, well that will make two rare occasions!

saying that... if the media are going to be an-al about it then how about making it "kanu's fa cup" to defend ... for he scored the winning goal...! lol. back to reality ... i think its a good draw for us and hopefully this will motivate the team to beat bristol city.

as much as i like seeing non-league teams get through, i think i would prefer to play swansea. can you imagine the build-up that the game with hston would get, and if we didn't win by at least 8 then we would "have underachieved". and imagine if we were to lose, i wouldn't be able to cope.
