Pompey FA Cup Final Song

Pompey FA Cup Final Song
It is the inspiration of Radio Solent presenter Steve Harris, who with the Sham 69 have tweaked their 1978 hit 'Hurry Up Harry'. Click here to hear a sample of the track.

My understanding that the band will try to release very soon & some of the monies will go to the 'Children in Need'.

There hasn't been anything from the club as to giving it their blessing but whatever I think it's great.

Sham 69.
Hurry Up Harry (revised 2008)


Come on, come on, come on,
Hurry up Harry, come on,
Come on, come on,
Hurry up Harry Redknapp,
We are going to win the cup,
We are going to win the cup.

We've seen off Ipswich, Plymouth,
And beat Preston and Man U,
We did the Baggies
Thanks to king Kanu
And now it's final time
We'll all sing the Pompey chimes
Play up Pompey, Pompey play up. Play up Pompey, Pompey play up
Come on, come on,
Hurry up Harry, come on,
Come on, come on,
Hurry up Harry Redknapp,
We are going to win the cup,
We are going to win the cup.

And I thought Jimmy Pursey was talented. Christ. Why not have a 2008 remix of Mike Oldfield's "Portsmouth" instead?

Other than this, no else has bothered. For the real oldies out there (anyone older than me, 41 & a half) it is a bit loud but I like it. We can play it Wembley now the FA have disgracefully allowed Cardiff to have the welsh national anthem. 'God Save The Queen' not good enough for them?

Matt. I'm 47 and a grumpy old man of the first order but I think it's great. Can't believe the FA have allowed the Welsh anthem - is Wales not part of the UK and therefore GSTQ their anthem too?

I've heard a few songs around on The Quay - one of them is called 'Going Back to Wembley' and has been produced by the supporters group in Spain, and its not bad. Remember the days when every team that got to the cup had an official song, and they'd get the teams into the studio to record it. I wonder which of our current squad can sing?

I'm getting really fed up of the FA and everyone else cow-towing to Cardiff. Yes we'll change the rules of the UEFA cup entry - and class you as English. Yes we'll play the Welsh National anthem. Anything else? Can we play Defoe please? No chance. I think we should really play up on the England v Wales thing - lots of England regalia mixed in with the Pompey.
