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!
