As a club we are playing for our future - and I guess the players for theirs. So weather this be more for pride or for the future most of all playing for pride is certainly something we started to regain, if we have lost this, at the weekend against Burnley.
The whole day out was fantastic - I really enjoyed this, fantastic stuff at a real 'old school' ground!
I thought that the players, and to be fair as they have on the whole all season really, gave it everything and I could not have asked them to give more really, although you could also sense that the 'pressure' had been lifted in a way.
In some ways I guess the same could have been said for the fans too...
Our 'performance' is rarely called into question is it, but I thought it was especially good on the day - we literally never gave in and the singing, even at half time, never stopped - magical! An 'Avram Grant's blue and white army' chant seemed to go on for at least 10 or 15-minutes, and at one point I thought this could go for the whole of the 2nd half!
I know that we have so much debt and what have you but how can no one not want to save this club - I cannot say 'it will' happen, but surely it will happen...right?
Lets keep doing this for the season and maybe cause a few worrying moments for those that may start looking nervously over their shoulders despite us being 14pts adrift when this points penalty is confirmed...
Most importantly lets do Birmingham in the cup next weekend and IF there is any justice in the world enable us to get AT LEAST one return to our second home of Wembley for a semi final, a final would be amazing, but I not greedy, much!
Although I BEG Pompey fans to go out and snap up the remaining tickets, Jesus this is an FA cup quarter finals we are talking about and apparently we had only sold some 8,000 tickets a couple of days ago, 8,000 for a quarter final of the best cup competition in the world is shocking.
In this day and age £25 is not too bad so every man/woman and his/her dog SHOULD be banging on the door, as I suspect they will come April 10th/11th if we make it back to Wembley - 250,000 'Pompey fans' turned up on the common the day after we won the cup in 2008, surely we can find 10% of them to turn up now FFS...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
