2 Months Ago Today

2 Months Ago Today
Sol getting Cup

Personally, not a day has gone by without a thought of that magnificent day. With various pictures at home & at work, computer screensavers at home & at work. That warm feeling that at long last, after decades of supporting through thin & thinner, I was there when we achieved something fantastic. When the world watched us, Pompey, do something fantastic. When supporters all over wished it was their team & them in the stands.

For what is probably a first in our lifetime & just in case it doesn't happen again (but we all hope it does & it could), let's not get bored or complacent with what was done 2 months ago today. So close your eyes, roll back the months to the day & have a warm glow inside & a big smile on your face. For we are all Portsmouth & we are all FA CUP WINNERS 2008.

Was it only 2 months. It seems like an age since we one it. I expect we will all be even more on edge defending it.

yep, i still think about this everyday and will never, ever forget it no matter what the future hold and what it may or may not bring - it can never be taken away, well it can and probably will next season, but the fact we have won the fa cup again can never be taken away!
im reminded of this day every single day now, several time per day infact due to the tattoo on my arm!

No More Quarter Final Replays For Pompey

Should Portsmouth progress through to an FA Cup quarter final from the 2016/17 season onwards, the game will no longer be subject to a replay.

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

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.
