Police Reject 10,000 Ticket Request

Pompey attempted to get 10,000 tickets, which Wigan would have accpeted but not the police.

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan said: 'I would love to give Portsmouth another 5,000 but there is no chance. We asked Greater Manchester Police if we could do it but they they have said no.

'They say Portsmouth fans have to be in one stand and that's it. They won't budge an inch and we can't do anything but pass on our apologies. I feel sorry for them (the fans). I wish they could come.'

We sit in two stands at Arsenal!

Good luck from all at Chelsea in your efforts to stay up! Your support would be missed around the Premiership if the worst were to happen

Who remembers at Swindow about 6 years ago when we drew 3-3. Think we had to put a defender in goal cos Flavs got badly injured about 15 mins in. Anyways my point is we had both ends there and spent the whole game waving at each other.

The 5,000 fans will just have to shout louder and cover for the other 5K....I'll be shouting from 12,000 miles away. Got to be careful what I say here (shouting means it's my round down here).
