So, what has seemed pretty much inevitable since last summer, without a doubt since the penalty points for going into admin were confirmed, was today confirmed - relegation after West Ham won.
It had only been a matter of time before this was 100% official, and in many ways the fact that - despite this said points penalty - we have, albeit only on a mere 'mathematical' technicality, managed to survive with less than half a dozen games to play is a 'victory' in itself given all that we have gone through this season.
We can, and WILL, go down with our heads held high not only after the way we have conducted ourselves over the past 10-months - maybe not those in the boardroom! - with what we have endured but also proud of what we have achieved over the past 7-years or so as a top-flight club.
Yet our season is not done, not by a long way!
I would hope that we continue to give it everything on the pitch in our remaining league games, as I sure as hell know we WILL continue to give it everything off the pitch - we DO still have further pride and dignity to play for.
And of course there is that 'small matter' of an FA cup semi final to be played tomorrow afternoon.
Both Spurs and ourselves now know that Chelski await.
If many felt/feel that Spurs is a mammoth task to overcome then Chelski will be completely out of the question in some people's minds! Although, lets not get ahead of ourselves, lets get tomorrow out of the way first and see what it brings - lets go to Wembley, enjoy, offer the fanatical support that we do and then take the remaining games, hopefully including the FA cup final, as they come.
We are down but we are by no means out, and we never will be - the Pompey spirit will NEVER be broken...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
