Aint no stopping Jamie!

Aint no stopping Jamie!

Jamie O'Hara has vowed to win his fitness battle to take part in the FA cup final.

He says that the bone bruising has been 'pretty painful' for him and it 'inflamed' with him playing so many games. With him also playing through the 'pain barrier' it got to a point where enough was enough.

Nothing will stop him from playing against Chelski, something he says he would do even if he had to with one leg, though: 'I was trying to play through the pain for the past month or so, but it got to the point where I just needed to rest it.

'It's not going to be 100 per cent for the final, but I'll go out there on one leg if I have to. I'm not going to miss out on this game.'

O'Hara, who of course returns to Spurs - for who long remains to be seen - after the cup final, has likened himself to a boxer in training for the big fight: 'I will try to get myself right. I'm a bit like a boxer at the moment - I'm resting until two weeks before and then I will really crack on and get myself right for the game.'

Quite clearly the guy is not going to play against Wolves this weekend, although it would be good for him to be able to get some playing time under his belt against Everton in our final game - then again this 'might not' be essential, yet you cannot beat competitive action to test an injury can you?

We know that we will get nothing short of 100% from Jamie but as much as he does deserve his crack at playing in the cup final, as he has been fantastic for us this season and looks as though he will stroll away with most player of the year awards, any undue risks cannot be taken can they?

That said 'calculated risks' are of course worth taking in the FA cup final really, and O'Hara will 'probably' be one of these.

It most certainly sounds like Jamie 'Rocky' O'Hara is going in with the 'there aint no stopping me' frame of mind...

First one on the team for what will be the last time!! Mind you McFadden and Whitehead would turn in their graves if Jamie sang their famous anthem - and sadly they are both no longer with us. Off Topic!

He deserves sod all. I can just imagine the reaction from Portsmouth fans if one of their players out on loan went on TV while the two clubs were playing each other and started referring to the loan club as "We"

A fine player. He's put in a lot for us this season and I don't blame him for saying "we". He has known for a while that hr wasn't going to want him back and all the while he has been at the center of a white-hot season at pompey. Human nature innit

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.

Versatile former Arsenal man in on trial?

Deacon, who started out with Arsenal has been with Stevenage and Crawley with the latter releasing him at the end of last season. Cookie will 'run the rule' over him in pre-season?
