Pompey get the Villa

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.

They won't. PFCblue. Villa see this as their own chance for silverware - M'ON wants to win something.

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!

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