'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jamie's going to Wembley...

Jamie's going to Wembley,
Jamie's going to Wembley.
La, la, la, la. La, la, la, la.

This is just one of the things that was sung by my travelling group, and hundreds of others outside Wembley yesterday afternoon after our semi final win, with us now knowing, fitness permitting - touch wood - Jamie O'Hara WILL get his chance to play at Wembley for the FA cup final!

It was heartbreaking for him to miss out on the semi, and he must have 'feared' this chance would pass him by, well it has not.

The guy has no chance in hell of going back to Spurs, well not in the long-term - he crossed his manager, and you DO NOT cross that manager! By all accounts as the studio guest yesterday, and a player who is of course contracted to Spurs, remained mostly 'neutral' but is said to have leaned slightly in our favour all in all...

To be fair just about every one of our players deserves to be going back to Wembley for the cup final, but for me O'Hara is a player that maybe deserves this a little more as he has, on the whole, been fantastic for us during his loan spell.

Clearly he WILL NOT be short of offers this summer, and chances are staying in the premier league is what he will do, although 'if' Avram Grant stays on and 'if' we could afford him then perhaps there could be the option to buy, or loan him again with an 'option to buy' at the end of next season?

He is apparently meant to have said over the weekend that 'dropping down' is something he would consider - did he mean that in terms of dropping down a division, or dropping down a section in the league, from a top half a dozen club like Spurs to a midtable, or lower, premier league side?

Time will tell on this one, what we DO know is, all being well...

Jamie's going to Wembley,
Jamie's going to Wembley.
La, la, la, la. La, la, la, la.

I'd love it if we could recall the big mouth as payback for disloyalty (I realise of course that this would be spiteful, but that's how I feel about him today). Actually, I've been told we couldn't do that because it's a premiership loan. However, a hearty well done to Pompey for a brave performance and good luck in the final (although I think you may have used it all up yesterday). I have to go and eat a very large slice of Humble Pie now!

Remained neautral? No way, the guy was 100% Portsmouth, and it had me laughing my head off. Just head over to Vital Spurs for a look at their reaction, they want his head on a silver platter. I thought Mokoena was friggin awesome yesterday, talk about spirit and desire. I think he could have played by himself and Tottenham wouldn't have scored.

Even as a gooner I felt his comments saying 'we' and 'us' regarding pompey were pretty inciteful, and disrespectful really. He obviously feels he is past the point of no return but to go on telly and spite the people still paying his wages, just shows how thick the kid is. ITV obviously wanted this, why else hire him? he's hardly capable of stringing a coherent sentence together. Still fantastic result yesterday chaps all the best for the final and hope you resolve all heap of bull***** w@nkas like Storrie and Redknapp have landed you in. You got a massive heap of karma on that melty faced old scrote yesterday :)

I was up till 3am giving some abuse on the vital spurs site. They just couldn't handle that we beat them and it was all the refs fault and we were the luckiest team on the planet!!! Fact is we fought for everything and wanted it more than them. Jamie as said above was 100% Pompey on the tv and I'm so glad he'll get to play in the final. Who knows that with the right owner we could keep some of our bigger players, like Newcastle have this season, and come straight back up with Avram at the helm. Optimistic but we're due good news. PUP!

I saw you there Moley - good luck to you. I have problems posting on other sites (something to do with my set up on Vital, I think) or would have supported you, not that you needed much. Wot a bunch of babies!

If, and it's a big if, we can keep Jamie next season I see no reason why we can't bounce back up. He has been our best player on a number of occasions this season, and can no doubt cut it in the Premier League, despite Spurs not playing him. But maybe he has caught the Pompey Bug and is unable to leave. I certainly hope so.

Do you think Pompey ought to re-record "ossie's dream" submitting Jamie's name instead?

Sky put Jamie (or he put himself) in an impossible position having him as a pundit for the match. But fair play to him, he's 100% blue, and we love him for it. His commitment has been second to none and he deserves his place in the final totally! Wherever he plays next season though, it's 100% it won't be for Spurs.

You lot have summed it perfectly. Jamie was as happy as Larry when you scored and when you scored the second he knew he was going to be seeing Wembley with his boots on.

What is wrong? Jammie is playing at Pompey, not spuds, do we moan about Nugent saying how he was glad to go to Burnley, & he is still a Pompey player.

Cheers Gandor, I just couldn't beleive how deluded some of their fans are. Is it really that inconceivable that little pompey could beat the mighty spurs without it being the refs fault.... oh and of course the pitch. Unless I was watching a different match then I'm pretty sure both teams were playing on the same pitch!

Wonderful. I am startiing to think that we can go down with most of our players and Avram, play in Europe (and that will help us keep our players) and then bounce back again. I do believe that Jamie will be with us next year.
