When was the last time we played at Wembley?

When was the last time we played at Wembley?
Not how did we win having only had 35% possession but when was the last time Pompey played at Wembley?

I've got mates who support Torquay, Yeovil, and Morecambe who have all been to Wembley for matches in various competitions but I don't know any Pompey fans who have been to Wembley, certainly since the war (the second world one not the Falklands).

So the big question is when did we last play at Wembley and are their any other league clubs who have had to wait so long?

My dad was 2 weeks old! So, so desperate to get to Wembley with Pompey, especially missing out in '92 & '93. My hope is 3 visits. Win the semi, win the final & then the CHARITY/COMMUNITY SHIELD incase we all forgot that. It could Man Utd too.

Had a bit of a check after posing this questions and the Cup Final appearance in 1939 is the last time Pompey were at Wembley, although the BBC mentioned something about 1942? That said Cardiff haven't been there since 1927, which isn't a bad thing.

The London War Cup Final - 30 May 1942 lost 2-0 to Brentford attendance 72,000. One or two well known names in Pompey side including Reg Flewin.

Sky Sports have suggested each team will get 33,00 tickets. I thought we would get nearer 40!

I think the last time we went to Wembley for a competion game was 1942 but I seem to remember we played an exhibition game their in the early 50's when we were still a top side.

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.

Debut delight...kind of!

It wasn't a result, and in many ways a performance, for Sheff United loanee Freeman to remember too fondly as he didn't really have a great game against Orient? Then again who did!

On this day in history...10th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 10th February.

Tubbs has left the building

Tubbs has finally left Pompey; perhaps his destination is something of a surprise then again there had been some 'rumours' recently of an Eastleigh interest.
