Pompey draw Carlisle

Pompey draw Carlisle

The 3rd round draw for the league cup has been made and Pompey's reward for seeing off Hereford in round 2 is a meeting with Carlisle.

We will travel to the league one side with us believing that this gives us a genuine chance to progress into round 4, and this draw does give us a fantastic chance of doing that!

Paul Hart was eyeing a cup run, this chance has started to open up now...

Of course it will not be an easy game but we would be favourites to progress - I have never been to Carlisle so this could be the chance, although it is a hell of a long journey for me...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I have never been to Carlisle either. Nearly did one year but plans cancelled at last minute - we lost 6-0!! Am I glad we changed our minds?

With all the PL clubs playing each other

I doubt i'm old enough to remember those bad days! Certainly heard about them though. Not being too harsh on us this year in this comp. Maybe they can do the same in the FA Cup.. :D

Sadly I'm old enough to remember some LONNNNGGG trips back from Carlisle; I do seem to recall a couple of them were pretty good

I wonder if Hart will find some balls and play an attacking formation

I've had some good times in Carlisle!, but surely they should be playing in the Scottish Cup. Civilisation runs out far more south than that!

Done Deal - Free agent Davies arrives

No sooner had I mused the central defensive options wondering would Cookie bring in another have we announced a deal for former Accrington man Tom Davies!

No longer a midfield option

Barton played most of his football for Pompey in central defence. He came to Fratton as a central midfielder but those days are behind him, as far as Cookie is concerned.

On this day in history...1st July

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 1st July.

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.
