To be the best you have to beat the best don't you so although a tie with Untied is made even harder by being at Old Trafford why shouldn't we be looking to progress? If we do overcome Fergie's men our quest for cup success is made that much easier by eliminating one of the most fancied sides.
This will be a real test and should indicate just how serious Harry Redknapp is about an extended cup run and even potentially winning it. As it isn't a league game the pressure is off, we have little to lose so I just hope that we approach it as such and go after them. I'd rather we gave it a go and got a hammering rather than sit back looking to catch them on the break and still get a hammering! Many a team have come away from Old Trafford with just that so let's have a go. If we don't show United too much respect and get at them why shouldn't we beat them? Failing this we'll take them back to Fratton and finish the job!
Pompey last faced United in the Cup as a Division One side and despite losing comfortably in the end we did have a go at them and should earlier chances been taken, if memory serves me right most notably from Nigel Quashie and maybe Vincent Pericard and should the woodwork not have denied us who knows maybe it would have been a famous victory?
The tie of the round is almost certain to be shown LIVE so it gives every Pompey fan, even those that can't make the trip to Manchester be it through lack of finances or ticket availability the chance to watch the game in all its glory.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
