Pompey face Plymouth in league cup

Pompey face Plymouth in league cup

The first fixture of Pompey's 2012/13 season has been revealed, and this is quite literally our first fixture as the 'Capital One' league cup tie is the first fixture of the season as this is played the midweek before the league one season kicks-off!

Following this draw, in which Pompey were among the seeds, we will face Plymouth.

This tie will take place at Home Park on either Tuesday 14th or Wednesday 15th August, the date will be confirmed in the coming days as will be the kick-off time. Although, if both clubs agree, it is possible that this can be played on Saturday 11th or Sunday 12th.

Hopefully, as much as the league will be the priority I know, this season we can avoid an exit at the first hurdle having been embarrassed in the 1st round by Barnet at Fratton last season.

Personally I am delighted with this as being based in Devon, Dawlish in fact, this is a rare occasion where I have little travelling to do!

What do you reckon guys is this a good or bad draw, and what are your expectations for the outcome of it?

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Just had a look at the whole draw and Devon clubs have done well all at home with big name opposition - Torquay have Leicester and Exeter, Palace.

Hmm, i might have to travel 5 minutes walk for that one-probably stop off at the Brittania for a cheap steak and a pint on the way

Please be Real Madrid...please be Real Madrid!

Ok, despite the fact Real Madrid must 'owe us one' for Diarra, I'm a realist with who Pompey will face...I'll settle for a pre-season friendly at Fratton being against Barcelona!

On this day in history...25th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 25th May.

We know Danny you want to stay!

In case we had forgot Hollands has reminded us of his desire to stay with Pompey! I'm not 'desperate' either way in many ways but sorting this quickly would be best for all concerned.

Three more pre-season games announced

'Glamour ties' are loved but pre-season is about fitness and form so it doesn't matter if it's Barcelona or Bognor... Then again a trip to the Nou Camp wouldn't be turned down!
