He told The News: 'It is exactly the same as what happened for the past three or four ....

Pompey Can Put On A Show At Wembley

Tony Adams is confident Pompey can give a better account of themselves in the Cup final than they did in reaching it. Pompey's assistant manager is hoping the Blues can settle and play their normal passing game against Cardiff in just over a fortnight's time - much more effectively than against west Brom in the semi-finals. But he has also warned the players they are not just there for a day ....

Why Cup Final Means A Lot To Defoe

Jermain Defoe has told how he will forget his disappointment at not being able to play in the Cup final to cheer his team-mates towards a dream he can be part of at Fratton Park - European football. The striker is Cup-tied, having played part of Spurs' win over Reading early in the competition, but says he will be at Wembley on May 17 hoping to see his side beat Cardiff. A win would guarantee UEFA Cup football - something Defoe says he and his team-mates are ready for. He also revealed how ....

Blues World Cup 'bid' Has Mileage

Hopes that Pompey could be one of the hosts if England's bid to stage the 2018 World Cup have been boosted by news FA bosses have already visited the city to check out its credentials.

Nugent Stakes A Claim, But Needs More

Like everyone in the Pompey squad, David Nugent is desperate to play his way into contention for a place against Cardiff in the FA Cup final. And he is hoping he has taken the first step towards realising that dream with a goal for the reserves at West Leigh Park. He helped the seconds to a 1-1 draw against Reading, but realises he will need to get a look-in at first-team level in the remaining league games if he's to have any hope of playing at Wembley. Nugent told The News: 'I was due a ....

Following problems with Fareham council and English Heritage over their scheme to build it near Titchfield Abbey, the club have been working with Gosport council - and this proposal seems miuch more likely to be granted. Initial opinion from supporters has been positive, with fans delighted the club have been working behind the scenes to get a ....

Blues Aren't Taking Their Eye Off The Ball

Niko Kranjcar has insisted Pompey are not taking their foot off the gas in their remaining league cup games to protect themselves for the Cup final. Some fans have questioned the side's desire after their weak defending at the City of Manchester Stadium, but Kranjcar says it is vital they chalk up some good results to keep confidence up ahead of the clash with Cardiff. Kranjcar told www.portsmouthfc.co.uk: 'We've had a great season and we still hope to continue. We will try to get as many ....

Pompey's World Cup Stadium Plan

Pompey may be helped by the FA to become one of the host venues for the 2018 World Cup if England's bid to stage it is successful. The exciting news comes from FA chairman Lord Triesman, who says bosses havew begun scouring the country for grounds already good enough to stage matches in the tournament and others which have the potential to be developed. It seems the FA are considering offering Pompey financial incentives to redevelop Fratton Park - although whether they might also be ready ....

Jamo's Warning To Pompey Team-mates

It's the theme of the week - and one which is being continued by David James. And it goes along the lines of: We mustn't let the fact we're in the FA Cup final distract us from trying to finish fifth in the leage. Pompey's hopes will be boosted tonight if Everton fail to beat Chelsea at Goodison Park. The Blues head to Mancchester City on Sunday and after that will have just three games left. James followed in the thoughts of Jermain Defoe when he said the push for Europe must continue ....

Fifth Place Is Still Wanted By Pompey

Harry Redknapp has admitted the FA Cup final is now Pompey's top priority - but his players insist they will still be going all out for fifth place in the league as well. And that seems particularly true of one man who is not able to be part of the Cup campaign - cup-tied Jermain Defoe. He brushed off his first goalless appearance in a Pompey shirt at Fratton Park last Saturday to talk of the desire to finish the league season strongly - starting at Manchester City on Sunday. Defoe ....

How To Buy ... And Who To Buy

Talk of who Pompey will bid to sign in the summer is gathering pace - but fans are more concerned with buying Cup final tickets, not buying players. Sunday is always the day when names are put in the frame, some old, some new, and this week is no exception. There's fresh rumours that Harry Redknapp will bid to snap up Peter Crouch from Liverpool at the end of the season, seeing him as the ideal partner for his England squad-mate Jermain Defoe next season. Crouch has already spoken publicly ....

Fans will have to wait until Monday to find out how they can get their hands on one of the near-25,000 tickets Pompey have been given for the FA Cup final. But what we do know already is that they will be priced £95, £80, £60 and £35 for adults, £85, £70, £50 and £25 for children and over-60s, and that the Blues - who will again be in all blue - will be backed by supporters at the eastern end of Wembley, as in the semi-final.

Fa Considering Cardiff's Uefa Case

Pompey's path into Europe may not be as clear as it seemed as the FA indicated they might be willing to allow Cardiff to represent England in the Uefa Cup - even though City come under the jurisdiction of the FA of Wales. The current rules of the competition indicate that should Cardiff win the trophy they would be barred from entry into Europe next season, leaving the place clear for Pompey. However, after Uefa president Michel Platini said that he would want to see Cardiff take their place ....

Redknapp's West Brom Warning

Harry Redknapp has issued the old FA Cup underdogs warning as the countdown continues to Pompey's FA Cup semi-final with West Brom - while his opposite number says the Baggies have nothing to lose. Meanwhile, Pompey have marked the end of the selling of their 33,000 tickets for the game by defending the way they handled demand. Redknapp has been talking about what it's like to be involved in FA Cup shocks as he drums into his team there will be no room for complacency against Tony Mowbray's ....

New Right-hand Man For Wembley?

Milan Baros appears likely to be Pompey's right-hand man if John Utaka loses his fight to be fit to face West Brom. Utaka's hamstring injury is not as straightforward as thought at first and he is running out of time to get back in training and sharp enough to take on the Baggies at Wembley on Saturday. Assistant boss Tony Adams has indicated that does not necessarily mean the Blues ditching the 4-5-1 formation they often use away from Fratton Park. And manager Harry Redknapp has been talking ....

Pompey Hope To Breathe Easy Before Wembley

Pompey are hopeful their minor injuries will clear up in time for three key players to face West Brom at Wembley on Saturday. Meanwhile, west Brom have played their last game before the semi-final, and Pompey's skipper has a pre-semi warning for his team-mates. Oxygen chamber treatment in a hospital in Gosport will help John Utaka and Hermann Hreidarsson win their battles to face the Baggies. The process, which they are undergoing at Haslar, speeds up healing of injuries.The technique has been ....

Sacha's Pledge Boosts Pompey

Sacha Gaydamak has started Wembley Week on an upbeat note with a promise he is not about to sell the club. He pledged his future to the club in a rare interview just a week before the FA Cup semi-final with West Brom. Meanwhile, Pompey have been linked with a summer move for one of Liverpool's big names. Gaydamak gave a rare interview alongside Peter Storrie to the Sunday Mirror's Paul Smith and used it to rubbish claims he had held talks with potential buyers of the club which have ....

Just One Batch Of Tickets Left Now

Pompey should get to Wembley more often. Judging by the speed at which tickets are selling, there's no end for the demand among Pompey fans - and maybe people who aren't Pompey fans - to see the Blues in action there. The club said all 6,500 Wembley tickets that went on sale to supporters on Pompey’s database at 6am on Thursday were sold by 8.30am.   That leaves just 1,180 seats left for Pompey fans for the eagerly-awaited semi-final against West Brom, now ....

Lack Of England Glory Is Good News

NOT much England glory for Pompey's players - but that was friendly and Pompey's next two games are anything but. So if Jermain Defoe and Glen Johnson are coming back unused by their country, and David James is coming hurt probably angry at himself for letting in a goal he might have kept out, is it a bad thing. Probably not. With no other reports of Pompey's foreign legion getting injured in action in the midweek internationals, that means things are still looking good selection-wise for the ....

Kanu: League Is Still Important

Kanu insists Pompey have not taken their foot off the gas in the league just because the FA Cup gives them their best chance of making it to Europe. Saturday saw them go down 2-0 at Spurs in a game in which they created few chances, even if they did defend well until the final 10 minutes. It left them seven points behind Everton in the race for fifth place, although their nearest challengers Aston Villa and Manchester City also dropped points. Some have questioned whether pompey's minds are ....

Anger As Defoe Misses Reunion

Harry Redknapp has described it as a load of nonsense - and it's hard to disagree. Jermain Defoe cannot face Spurs, say the Premier League, because he initially joined Pompey on loan. It means the man who has hit the ground running at Fratton with six goals in six games will not face his old club on Saturday. Why the fact that Defoe came first on loan to Pompey matters is unclear - surely only the fact he is now Pompey's player is important. Kanu probably won't mind too much; it should mean a ....

First Batch Of Tickets Almost Gone

Pompey have smashed their record for the number of tickets sold for a single game in a day by 200 per cent - and say they are looking into the 'small number' of complaints they have received. More than 13,000 season ticket holders and Blue Army and Junior Blues members bought their seats for the semi-final with West Brom at Wembley within 24 hours of tickets going on sale on Tuesday. It is by some distance the most tickets the club has sold for a game in a 24-hour period. Complaints have ....
