I do not know if anyone has seen this, or heard it anywhere, but I have just been told that Admin Andy has applied for us to go into the uefa, sorry Europa league next season...
We had declined the opportunity to register ourselves for European football next season, and the deadline for this has passed - although with Chelski being our opponents in the final an assured place is there 'if' we are allowed in, whatever happens in this game!
And 'word on the street' has it that Pompey now want to have a piece of the European road trip again?
This is something that we discussed on the way home yesterday and we had this feeling that 'if' we won the cup we would be given the right to go in, although we felt that if we lose then this place would just go back to the league, as it seemed it would?
'Fingers crossed' that this does come off, and whatever side we put out, and wherever this would be and for however long it lasted, I WOULD be there...
Then again did we not have fears that we could not meet the 'uefa standards' so that is why we opted out of applying? Or was it all a money-based decision?
It will be interesting to see what will come of this, although this and other potentially good news recently, not to mention the fact that we ARE FA cup finalists again makes me think, maybe wrongly, that something is afoot and 'better times' could be on there way?
I do hope so!
Do we dare to believe that 'something' could soon be sorted out to get us up and running again, and also give us another crack at European football...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
