What to wear?

Firstly, the team…

WBA were drawn out first, so are they the home team, they play in the dark blue & white stripes which may clash with our blue or our white? Are there dark blue stripes to thick for us to play in black?

When will we know so we the supporters can turn Wembley into a sea of our colour…

my money is on white, as for the fans, how about a revival of the North stand boaters? Very common in the late 80's, looked very dapper, that ans all the Colin Clarke masks last time me made the semi's

Zola... I've had similar thoughts... I'm trying to get my lot to dress in 'what thye would have worn in '39' ... Tailored suits, flat caps, rattles, It'll be great if we can get some kind of theme going.... might even be worth a shout to The News... if we can get enough of us to decide on something similar..

Would love to Pompey play at Wembley in the traditional Blue, White and Red but not this time. Maybe the Final if we can get there.

A theme is a great idea - and inflatables etc. I was thinking of getting a blue wig and possibly some sort of sailor teddy bear from the dockyard gift shop - (or inflatable sailor? ooh er missus!). Sailor suits might be worth considering.

paultsmouth boaters is a good idea, not only class, comfortable, not expensive and picked out by the cameras easily. Go for it launch a campagn.

I remember the boaters in the mid 80s. I stood with some of them, where are you Dave Brewer (I think) & his mates. Even had our picture in the News. More fame!!!! Anyway, I expect there will lots of themes going on, the more the better & lots of blue. This of course will a 'dress' rehearsal for the actual final. It bl00dy better be!

I'm hoping we get through to play Barnsley in the final so we can definitely wear our blue, white and red for the big one.

Cardiff have already said they will challenge it if they are not allowed to play in the UEFA cup if they win. My feeling is they elected to register in Wales as an easy way to get to Europe through winning the Welsh cup. They had the option to register in England as well as Wales but decided not to because of the extra cost. While I would understand their feelings I also think you can't have it both ways and they may end up rueing their decision.

How come they play in the english league then?

There is an agreement to allow Swansea and Cardiff to play in the English League whilst licenced to the Welsh League. It goes back to way before my time so I can only assume it was to please the coal miners of the day. Anyway it still stands even though it contravenes FIFA regulations and everyone has ignored it because neither team has got this far in any competition before.

Simply can't wait. Will be the first time I've been to the new Wembley and the best thing is I'll be watching pompey and won't have to watch the constant letdown that is the national team. PUP!!
