The FA cup is officially passed...

Pompey's claim of being FA cup holders official ended this afternoon when the cup that 'we' won a little over 12-months ago was passed onto Chelski, who beat Everton 2-1.

None of us will ever forget the day when 'Portsmouth Football Club' won the FA cup, 'when Sol went up to lift the FA cup' and all that...hopefully we can all have a chance to again see us achieve such a feat in the future?

Congratulations to Chelski, commiserations to Everton, but our claim to fame of the only club outside of 'the big 4' to win the FA cup since Everton back in 1995 remains...

Ha! Chelsea not even having a open top bus parade as they can't afford it! Come on Abramovich, do the fans a favour you tight fisted plutocrat!

are they really not having an open top parade? i think wolves didnt have one when they won the championship title because of 'health and safety' rules? is that right?


the dent was put in it by e.on merlin, despite what the 'media' might tell you, it wasnt us that caused major damage to it...

to be fair, having an open top bus ride in portsmouth is cheaper than in london... and for them, it'll probably happen again in a couple of years time.

...actually, come to think of it, it's probably so they don't drop it from the top of a bus again :-). Look after it for us merlin, we'll want it back next year!

dont you feel it 'devalues' the cup, the best cup competition in the world, slightly tho carpet?
and also denys fans that were unable to see the cup won at wembley the chance to have a really feel for the event?

It's on loan that's all, we want it back & we want it back soon. Watched the match with a heavy heart & my mind rolling back to our 'greatest football day'.

It shows how far I've come, not feeling absolutely gutted. Congrastulations to Chelsea, Pompey will be back next year.
