Pompey get the Villa


Pompey were rewarded for their exploits in the Carling (League) Cup with a home tie against Aston Villa.

Most fans would probably have favoured drawing Blackburn Rovers but a home draw in the quarter final of any competition is a big bonus. It is also the only tie outside of Lancashire.

The full draw is

Blackburn v Chelsea

Manchester City v Arsenal

Manchester United v Tottenham

Pompey v Aston Villa

Games are played in the week commencing 30th November.

It is a good draw! Pompey can win this one if we play with the a winning attitude. It is much better than playing Chelsea or United. A good draw I must say.

the second best possible draw for us... we couldn't really expect more!

Let's hope Villa put out a weakened side ;-)
PFCblue
They won't. PFCblue. Villa see this as their own chance for silverware - M'ON wants to win something.
FootyFans
No chance PFCblue. We're going all out to win this. Guzan's got the spirit of Bosnich in him. This is our competition. First ever winner and have appeared in more finals than anyone else (I think - correct me if I'm wrong). We want it back. It's a shame we're not at home but I think you'll find we are very happy to have avoided the Sky 4. UTV!

*Bosnich '94 that is. ;)

Aston Vanilla couldn't win a cup if they ordered a cream tea in Plymouth.

Cripes, I thought I was on the Villa site for a minute,I had to do a double check! Where is everyone - Oh, I know - out celebrating our 4-0 win over Wigan today!

pentonpompey

tracyc
good draw! i hope we beat spuds in the final!
nodster
Would of perfered Blackburn at home, but villa at home is still very good.
PompeyFcMad
After winning against a Wigan team that smashed Chelsea few weeks ago, we can win any time; if we have the winning mentality, which we seem having!
Pompey Malta
As long as it doesn't detract from our leauge fight, cos it's incredibly important to maintain the impetus after our win over Wigan. If we have no injuries and can field a strong team there's a good chance we could do Villa....
cornypomp
Why oh why doe they insist on playing these games when I'm on shift. I haven't been able to get to any of the Carling cup games yet, so unless they play that game on the Monday night I can't get there as I won't get home from London until about 8 to 8.30 depending on the traffic.
