On Sky

Pompey play their second Fa cup final in a couple of years tomorrow, this time we are the biggest underdogs since Dudley Moore tried to pull Bo Derek.

Vital Quotes:

If you read a quote from anyone outside of a PO postcode, it will predict a Pompey defeat, the pundits point to 1960 since the last time we chalked up a win, Alan Hansen even went as far as to call Chelsea double winners on last weeks match of the day, little respect is being paid to Pompey anywhere, hopefully Chelsea will be as overconfident, we may be down, we may be skint, we even be facing oblivion, but for one more day Pompey can step out into the sunshine at the National stadium and be watched by half the country, if the country loves an underdog, Pompey will have about 30 million fans on Saturday.

Chelsea Team News:

Chelsea have few injury worries, John Terrys' 'broken metatarsal' turned out to him being a big girls blouse, while the only real new worry is that Ivanovic may have a knee problem.

Player to watch: Lampard

Always scores a goal against us, if he doesn't Drogba does.

Pompey Team News:

Pompey have doubts over half the squad, this has been the story nearly all season though, Boateng never travelled with the rest of the squad, so expect him to start then, while Wilson, O'Hara, Dindane and Yebda all have knocks.
Belhadj has recovered but lacks match practice and if he figures it will only be as an impact sub, Richard Hughes may make it yet while Sowah also has a knock after starting the last few games.

Player to watch: O'Hara

I don't care if he has a stress fracture of the back, I reckon he would have to be tied to his bed not to play, he has been Pompey's player of the season 9 times over, he has one more game in Pompey's colours so let this be his day.

Match Facts & Stats

Oh, we always bloody lose, who cares!

Ref Watch:

John Paice, 50 today!

Next Fixtures:

Scunthorpe on a tuesday night, cup of Bovril in hand surrounded by fans who are there for the love of it, not because its the Prem.

Gotta say guys I wish you all the best & I know all the cliches about "The Cup" but seriously... Chelsea are on fire. I'm a Villa fan I so I know first hand. Gutted its not us playing you tomorrow as I'd have loved to make it three trips to Wembley this season. Good luck. I really hope you wipe that f'kin smug look of Terry's face. He's a thug and I have NO time for the man. Play Up Pompey!
