Pre-season - Chelsea come to Fratton!

Pre-season - Chelsea come to Fratton!

Pompey will play Chelski at Fratton this summer in a pre-season friendly, the first 100% confirmed friendly scheduled by my reckoning - although the Bournemouth fixture will now be penned in following their failure to secure promotion.

I would assume that everyone has heard about Chelski coming to town, if not where have you been...

This will take place in mid July and is quite a coup really because bringing such a club to Fratton 'should' mean that plenty of people are drawn through the Fratton gates and every little helps us at the moment!

Full details, as issued on The Pompey Site the other day, are below...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Pompey To Host Chelsea In Pre Season Friendly

We are very pleased to announce that Pompey will host Chelsea at Fratton Park as part of their pre-season schedule.

The London side, who sit second in the Premier League table, will visit Portsmouth on Saturday, July 16 in the first meeting between the sides since the 2010 FA Cup final.

Pompey chief executive David Lampitt said: "We are delighted to welcome Chelsea to Fratton Park.

"It is fantastic to attract a side of their calibre down here. They're one of the biggest clubs in the country and it promises to be an entertaining match.

"We are very much looking forward to giving them a traditionally warm welcome back to Fratton Park."

Tickets for the match, which kicks-off at 3pm, will go on sale to all fans at 10am on Tuesday, June 21.

Seats bought in advance will cost £15 for adults and £10 for seniors (60+) & young persons (17-20), while children (16 and under) can watch the game for just £1.

Tickets bought at the stadium on the day of the game will be £20 for adults and £15 for concessions. Child tickets will remain at only £1.

Pompey last faced Chelsea a little over a year ago at Wembley. That afternoon Carlo Ancelotti's men beat the Blues 1-0 with Didier Drogba's second-half goal securing the trophy for the Londoners while both sides missed penalties - the first time that has happened in FA Cup final history.

Yes on the positive, a huge prem club without a doubt & no doubt some fans will be attracted by that. However after 7 recent prem seasons of playing them (awful record of 1 draw & 13 defeats) not to mention the cup defeats, I suspect some of us are sick of the sight of them!!!

As long as we can sing the "Chelsea, wherever you may be" song, I don't mind going to watch it matt.

Talking to a Chelsea sth today and when I said we only have eight players he replied 'that should be enough, our lot will be in their bath chairs by then!'

Third time lucky? Nope as O'Shea interest ends

O'Shea saw a couple of bids for him put in; these were turned down by Chesterfield. A third bid hasn't come from Pompey and it isn't going to either.

Topping last seasons tally the aim

78pts was only enough for a play-off place last season so you suspect we'll have to better that for a top 3 finish this coming season, which begins with Carlisle at Fratton.
