Cup semi final date confirmed

Cup semi final date confirmed

The all-important date for our FA cup semi final, be this against Spurs or Fulham, has been confirmed.

Chelski and Villa will kick-off of cup semi final weekend by playing their semi on Saturday 10th April with a 5pm kick-off.

Our semi - on what will be a scuffed up Wembley surface by that point - will take place the day after on Sunday 11th with a 4pm kick-off...

This is not so good as I am not so sure the Sunday train services are going to be that helpful, but hey ho what can you do eh!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I was hoping for Saturday lunchtime as that is our lucky time but Sunday at 4pm it is.

Bit of a bummer as I guess we were all hoping for the Saturday game, but still it's a semi at Wembley so what's the point in moaning!

I'll need to see if I can change my flight, I'm supposed to be flying out from Heathrow at 4.30; I hadn't considered it would be so late on the Sunday, flipping annoying

Well at least we know when it is now - it might put paid to getting the train though. Still I know a carpark near a train station that's free on Sundays! Hopefully it'll just be a few days now till the ticket details come out.

Not so much of an early start but a sort of late ish finish. We shouldn't moan in case it's a few decades until we return again!!!

I too was hoping for Saturday lunch time but as that day the kick off is at 5pm I'm glad we're on the Sunday as I have tickets for the Portchester beer festival. Anyhoo train tickets already booked, returns for 3 people and travel cards less than £60, bargain!

Actually I checked the train times and they're not too bad considering it's a Sunday evening. I must have a look at that pre-booking deal you got Lemmi, I got quoted just under £30 each for tickets+travel cards - what was it 'the trainline.com?'

I went through National Rail Enquiries, which took me to South West Trains. It was £50.70 for three people without travel cards and £58ish with. The train times are pretty good, we're aiming to make a day of it and leave about 9am.
