Not a bad thing?

Not a bad thing?

Essentially the message coming from so many is that they are staying away from Fratton Park, no so much purely down to the cost, more so as they are 'unsure where their money is going'...

With this thought in mind news from sky sports that as we are now in administration the club basically have to put forward a 'written request' to the Professional Game Board and give a 'satisfactory explanation' as to where this is going in order to get prize money generated from our cup game 'should' satisfy people, right?

Pompey cup cash needs approval - here.

Surely now, for what is an FA cup quarter final for goodness sake, we will see people that were 'unsure' whether or not to part with their money for the game with Birmingham actually part with it and go this weekend?

I do hope so!

Yep, I know the game is on the box but as previously said in this day and age £25 is not too bad, even less so for an FA cup quarter final! Couple that with thoughts that I suspect most will want to go to Wembley come April 10th/11th, if we make it to the semi final, so attendance here could all but assure you of a ticket?

As also said, we saw 250,000 'Pompey fans' turn up on the common the day after we won the cup in 2008, if we cannot find 10% of them to turn up now it is just criminal...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Agree Rug, The footy hour last night said that the Fratton End was sold out and only individual seats left elsewhere in the ground, so it would appear that the faithful have been persuaded. I just hope those turning up, are the noisy variety and get behind the lads PUP

If it is only 800 left then great. We need the place buzzing on Saturday, and with 18000 singing 'Avram Grants Blue and White Army' we'll have the bloke cart wheeling down the touch line. Can't wait now for Saturday as the atmosphere should be great, Burnley was superb in respect that there was only about a 1000 of us up there, so it could be a simlar atmosphere to the Milan game if everyone sings up.

As an exile I get frustrated at not being able to get behind the lads in our hour of need. Therefore I would encourage all those attending on Saturday to get behind the lads a roar on to the semi's.

AsTAd far as I'm concerned the money should be sent to the Administrators Escrow account ( 3rd party account to manage payments) without delay, it is down to Admin Andy to decide what that money is spent on. The game can't come soon enough for me.

Be there & scream your hearts out. One game away from Wembley & let's be honest it could be a while before we go back again!!!

I'm one of those who won't be there Rug (arrive back Monday), but they've got to win so that I can see them at Wembley (if my members ticket can get me a seat!).

I assume for those like PFCBlue that can't make the game it will be on the box

2016-17 Champions Review: March

Every season has its highs and lows. The draw at home to Morecambe was a body blow for Pompey, but little did we know that the next home game against Crewe was to be our turning point.

Done and dusted - O'Brien joining Coventry

Academy graduate O'Brien, who went on to play for Barnet, Brentford and Dagenham following his release by Pompey, will leave Fratton Park again - he'll link up with Doyle at Coventry.

A lot can change in the space of a few weeks, and with fixtures piling up in front of them, Pompey needed to find form if they were to make themselves serious contenders.
