Its being billed as 'Battle of the high seas', 'Battle of the dockyards' to me it is a chance to get to the 5th round for the first time in 4 years.
Our neighbours up the road are justly taking all the headlines this year, no, not the ones 15 miles away, the ones on our own doorstep. H&W are taking 6,000 fans up to Anfield, as the normal crowd is about 500, don't be surprised if their ranks are swelled somewhat by boys in blue.
Plymouth are in the giantkillers shoes this time round, historically Pompey have always been the bigger club, although the last 40 years its been hard to tell!
Big Sol is fit again after last weeks 'back' problems, he should step straight back in, Distin maybe given a breather, but after his recent comments about wanting to play every game, he will have to be forced to sit it out.
Sean Davis may make a return to midfield, he came through a midweek test against West Ham reserves with no reaction.
Harry has promised a strong side tomorrow, he would like a good cup run as well as us fans, so don't expect many diversions from the Premiership line-up.
Our cup King, he gets another chance to impress, if the imminent arrival of Milan Baros wasn't enough, another blank week would add to the pressure.
Chris Clark who arrived from Aberdeen last week, may make an immediate bow, fellow new signings MacLean and Mackie are cup-tied.
Sounds like an aristocrat, but has being banging them in rather regularly this season, Pompey's defence cannot take him lightly.
Games between the two 'local' rivals are few and far between lately, Pompey have the upper hand in general, but Plymouth made the 5th round last year, only then Premiership Watford stopping their progress.
Pompey must win, mustn't they? A big shock would be in store if we don't, but this IS the F.A cup!
After our cup exploits, Pompey can relax with a stroll upto Old Trafford on Wednesday.
