Pompey vs. Spurs

On Sky

Down, now for day out!

Pompey may have taken our inevitable drop to the lower tiers of football, but that was hardly unforseen was it?
Next up is satrip to Wembley, and one that is more unexpected than when were a Premiership force.

Vital Quotes:

Tomorrow will be the highlight of our season, that is unless we return in 5 weeks time of course, but in a season of valleys and troughs, a day out at the home of football will be embraced by all those who see through blue tinted goggles.
If we overcome the manager and players who once wore our own Royal blue, Chelsea will await in the season show piece, so a club that is the equivalent of Orphan Annie, has to first overcome 2 sets of Daddy Warbucks to once again hold up the silverware.

30 odd thousand fans will again head North to the footballing mecca, tomorrow is all about the football rather than finance and woe.

Pompey Team News:

The Fa cup has proven to be an elixir in the Pompey treatment room, KPB who was out tfor the season has made a miraculous recovery, while our two Algerians have shown all the recovery powers of a phoenix to also be available. Tommy Smith has recovered from a broken beak and will also be able to feature.
Out though will be Jamie O'Hara, he cannot figure due to loan conditions, he will have to console himself with a place in the final no doubt.
Vanden Borre also blew his chances of a Wembley appearance after his sending off last week, Finnan is fit to start however.
From our succesful campaign of 2008, only James, Utaka, Diop and Kanu look likely or able to figure, the rest have either signed for Spurs or are injured!
Dindane may get a swansong appearance, his loan conditions will see him have to be permanent if he plays any more, that will not happen.

Player to watch: Kanu

He may well not start, but will figure at some stage, if one Pompey player has the pedigree, it is the King.

Spurs Team News:

Spurs have almost a full squad to choose from, Defoe and Crouch and Pavlyuchenko will vy for two spots up front, while King should return to marshall the defence, poor old Younes is cup-tied after playing for Pompey earlier. Kranjcar will no doubt start alongside compatriot Modric.
Corluka and Dawson have an outside chance of making it.

Player to watch: Defoe

Not a pompey favourite after basically throwing in the towel for Pompey while still at the club, but he is a real goal threat.

Match Facts & Stats

Spurs fans will tell you that every time they have beaten Pompey in the cup they have gone on to win it, that is twice, in 1991 and 1967, Pompey of course have only met them the twice!

A meaningless Premiership fixture against someone or other

Come On Pompey! We can't lose to jamies dad and the others.
pompeyfcmad
what is the betting that if you beat the Sadspurs Dindane can get a reprieve. His parent club would look pretty despicable if he was kept from a game that he deserves to play in because of some stupid clause in a loan agreement.
SFC Forever
Glad that Janice is cup tied.
hammersmithblue
"Day out"? B0ll0cks to that - we're going there to win it, aren't we? Come on everyone - INDOMITABLE SPIRIT from us and the team will win the day and show the world!
ninjatim

tracyc
TeddyLyon - I'm rendered stunned by the depth and genius of your wit.
ninjatim
Ninjatim you should ask whether he is a real spur. has he had it cut?
SFC Forever
Can't see it happening but wouldn't it be good if we did it!
russellm
pompey have done the impossible and taken the lead. Second half of injury time to go and the miracle is still on.
SFC Forever

Hats off to u bunch. A good win. All the best for the finals. If you win the FA Cup will you be eligible for Europe? A great team unlucky to get relegated
Born_as_Devil
(Villa fan) Well done Pompey. You have softened the blow of us losing yesterday. Gutted it's not us facing you in the Final but glad it's you and not Spurs against Chelsea. Good luck in May, next season and beyond.
Adam Deuce
Cheers guys, all nice sentiments!!!!!! I dont think we are eligible for europe as we didnt fill in our registration (it costs a fiver) so I dont think that would be an option, but great for our club and fans, great also to hear that so many other fana have simpaphy for our plight, bring on the final!!!! PUP

Doug4ever
Congratulations Pompey - i'll be cheering you on in the final and that's from a Manchester City fan.
Tudor
It might be partly because I'm an Arsenal fan, but it's mostly because I'm a football fan, but I'm delighted with your result today. You guys have been royally f***ed over for many years now (mainly by the man you just knocked out of the cup) and to get through to the final took a monumental amount of spirt, courage and determination. I'm made up for you chaps, and I'll be keeping an eye on your results next year and hoping you make it back where you belong. Now go win that cup :)
Rocky7
Thanks to all you true lovers of the game. The result shows what spirit and pride can do.
PFCblue
congratulations chaps from all at Vital Chelsea!
merlin
congratulations chaps from all at Vital Chelsea!
merlin
Congrats guys! I was literally singing 'Play up Pompey' throughout the extra time! Now after beating the twitching man who faced his former club today, Avram Grant will try and beat his! Come back up next season! :)
GoonerLou
I'm so happy.
Mike1954
Congrats Pompey, delighted to see you guys in the cup final after the ***** you've had to put up with this season. Good luck against Chelsea, and I hope to see Portsmouth back in the PL soon.
Bluedub
Well done Pompey from all at Man City - you fans deserve the victory and the Cup Final appearance - hope you go on and win it.
Wswilly3

prits

p.villa
Spurs fan here: well done, totally deserved and all the best in the final.
Tony Rocky Horror
Just got back, what a day out, possibly my best ever bring on Chelsea it's time to break our duck against them.
Steve C
Having done all Wembleys trips over the past 2 years this one was the best as it was so unexpected. Many thanks to all the good wishes from all other supporters.
Ihatemidweektvgames

dannybhoy46
Fair play to the Pompey. You lot deserved all three there.
Blue is the colour
******** hell, I'm in shock.
stillthewhizz

Tony Rocky Horror

NZ_Portsmuff

tracyc
gutted spurs fan here but not going to moan jsut going to say i am happy for the fans of pompey you were awesome yesterday and have been all season good luck.
jljyid
i said on this site weeks ago that i would love it if you scored the winner against spurs in the last minute of extra time, well you surpassed that , and i am over the moon. i also said that i hoped that rednapp and his cronies would would get done for fraud and tax evasion surely after yesterday, if there is any justice in the world, that to will happen well done pompey, if ever a team deserved a happy end to a season its you and i am convinced that you will be back where you belong, in the premiership at the end of next season, thank you for showing the world what true supporters are all about
cornish gooner

SHOE HAMMER
