What a season!

What a season!
Beating Liverpool on penalties to win the Premier League Asia Trophy. It wasn't much but I was very pleased, especially as you could see some locals in the crowd with Pompey shirts and it did a little bit toward the heartache of Martin Kuhl and Co.

Winning 7-4 at home to Reading (my local team really, as an old Overton boy) A great day was had by us Devonshire supporters (Rug, Geoff, Daz & me that day) We laughed talked and sang all the way and down the coast.

Jermaine Defoe actually signs for Pompey.

Watching Diarra against Plymouth Argyle and the travelling up and down the coast road that day - tooting and banter with the Green Army.

Finishing in the highest position I have ever seen.

Watching the Man Utd cup game on the tele with Geoff, telling him "We're gonna win the cup .... We're gonna win the cup."

My first ever trip to Wembley shortly followed by the second...... Martin Kuhl and Co.. the pain has gone now.

These are just some of the highs for me, what about yours?

what a season indeed - your highs are also the highs that i share, the 7-4 was incredible, what a creacking day it was all told the game was the perfect filling for the middle...
clearly winning the fa cup is one of the greatest things that has ever happened in my pompey supporting life but being at old trafford that day to see us beat manyoo was something else.

Great stuff Graham. Short and to the point. In my KMKY I said I wanted to win the FA Cup as my ultimate goal and now we have done it!! Enjoy your summer down in the south west and see you next season.

going up all the way to newcastle away, thinking to myself if we lose the way home is going to be so long. didnt have a clue we would turn out the best perfomance of the season, and the way home wasnt that long, even though we were stuck in carlisle for 2 hours and had to take a taxi from there to preston...

What ever the future holds, we will always have this season. Nothing will erase the fantastic moments the 2007-08 has brought us die hard fans. Winning the FA Cup just tops the lot. Ironically I was in Malta for a family wedding when we won In Hong Kong & I fly out shortly for another. Wembley Pompey flag is packed. Catch you all later.

On this day in history...29th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 29th June.

Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

Solving that goalie quandary

I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

Pompey's attacking intent

Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
