Wembley. Home or Away?

Wembley. Home or Away?
As we know, WBA were drawn next, making them home team against us.

Though our match was first up, TV dictates this; we had the away end, as did Cardiff.

So now the final. Who is home & who is away?

Are Cardiff home because they were drawn first, thus having first choice on home kits & ends or do we toss a coin & there we have it?

My questions have been answered by PFC offical website. We have the same, same dressing rooms & we are in our home blue as Cardiff are sticking with their 'lucky' black kit. We have just under 25,000 tickets. How the the tickets will be sold 'madness' will be advised on Monday.

oh god, im pleased im nt deciding who gets to go to the game! the 15 000 season ticket holders i feel probably should get to go (that wont include me), and then i would just put the rest on sale to people on the pompey database (possibly to those who were on it before a certain time?) - but anything they do will result in uproar from a sector of fans.

I think it's good news that we have the East End again. I wish we'd decided to wear white shorts. I know Gill prefers them dressed that way!! (Sorry Rug, copied from another VP article :) )

Yes in Cardiff want to wear all black Blue White and Red would have been sensible.

I am going to be interested to see how many of the spare 40,000 tickets come back on sale. Except to the fans of the clubs I am sure that not that many people are actually bothered by either team so either there will be even more empty seats than before or a lot will be sold back to Wembley to be distributed to the clubs.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.

Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...
