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

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 Jamie. You well and truly nailed your colours to the mast. Tottenham bridges burned, no queue of regular trophy winning teams queing up to sign you. Make the most of it while it lasts...and you used to be a bit of a favourite. Shame.

whilst i understand than some spurs fans would be angry with him as you pay his wages, he is your player etc. - and i would/have been the same with one of our player(s) out on loan - the guy wants to play football, he is not happy to just accept a place on the bench and take his money and he KNOWS that is all he will get with spurs, especially under redknapp. i am 'over him' now (before it is said otherwise) but we, pompey fans, know exactly how he works and i am convinced jamie knows it too, he has NO future at spurs under him so is making this clear and not hiding it.

He professed to be a Spurs fan, he is still young and can't expect to get into the team straight away every game, no-one has said he has no future. He actually said he hoped Spurs lost against Fulham. THat is unforgiveable in my book. I thought he was going to turn into a very good player with Spurs but i no longer hope he does. I hope he fails to live up to his potential and forever remembers that it was because he turned his back on the club that could have made it happen for him. And he didn't go to Pompey for a desire to play, or some honourable not-wanting-to-collect-pay-for-sitting-on-the-bench. It was because half his team mates had already been up his missus.
