UEFA Cup Final

UEFA Cup Final
And yes we can look forward to being in Europe & challenging many others in the UEFA Cup.

If you remember the pain & aggro of getting hold of 34,000 tickets for our semi & 25,000 for the final have a moment & think that this years UEFA Final is at the City of Manchester Stadium. It holds 44,000.

Rangers & the Russians only get 13,000 tickets each. That's all. What a naff amount. Your team gets to a European final & you get 13,000 tickets. What a shambles.

Great to know the fans are being looked after again!

For now I will settle for winning the FA Cup but imagine if we were able to get to next years final & be offered 15,000ish tickets?

The Cup Final and promise of the UEFA Cup have destroyed my end of season Premier enjoyment. Does anyone else agree.

No oo7. We have plenty of end of seasons to come but we may not have another FA Cup for a long time.

I would imagine it would depend on where the final would be held, but you would think we would sell this amount where ever it was.

Liverpool fans in hong kong 50% of the residents 40% Manure fans 5% Arsenal 5% the rest it's the same all over the far east, I take your point on eastern europe thou as it would be mid week too, but I am putting pompey on the map in Chiang Mai (Thailand) have a 5'x3' Pompey flag outside our music pub there.

On this day in history...30th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 30th May.

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!
