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 ....

Wait Fot It On Details Of How To Buy For Final

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. Pompey's website ....

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 ....

It's Fair Game At Fratton

The first Pompey programme fair of 2008 takes place on Sunday, March 30. It will be held in the marquee at Anson Road, near Fratton Park, Portsmouth FC from 11am to 2pm. The fair started out with just four stallholders and about 50 people coming through the doors back in 1980, but it has grown to over 15 stallholders and over 250 collectors of all ages coming to it. Organiser Chris Gibbs says the first few fairs used to be all about programmes, but now the collecting habit has ....

Cup Excitement Gets Mill Turning

So you thought it was only in the January transfer window that rumours, counter-rumours and more rumours took over where Pompey were concerned? Well it seems the club making it through to their first FA Cup semi-final for 16 years, and to Wembley for the first time in 66 years, is breeding more than a few stories too. Central to fans' minds right now is the question of how many tickets Pompey will get when they take on West Brom on April 5 or 6, how these will be ....

It's Pompey V Baggies In The Semis

Pompey will face West Brom in the FA Cup semi-finals. Pompey have beaten them only once in four attempts in the Cup ... in 1939.  The fourth round victory over them was, of course, on the way to the Blues winning the competition - a run that also saw them beat Preston, another of the teams Harry Redknapp's side have beaten on this year's run.  Albion won the three other Cup ties against Pompey, in 1931, 1956 and 1968. Pompey will get significantly more than 25,000 ....

The Warning Pompey Shouldn't Need

It's the warning no-one really needs to give Pompey. Nevertheless, it's worth saying it anyway just in case anyone in the Pompey side forgets ... watch out for that lad Ronaldo. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first Manchester United goal against Pompey with a free-kick -admittedly one that was supposed to be a cross not a shot - past Shaka Hislop at Old Trafford back in November 2003. Since then the Portuguese star has tormented the Blues plenty of times - remember his double at Fratton in ....

We Must Go For It At Old Trafford

He might not be able to play, but that won't stop Jermain Defoe issuing a few words of advice to his team-mates as he prepares to watch them take on Manchester United for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals. Defoe is Cup-tied so will sit out the match on Saturday, but has played against Sir Alex Ferguson's men often enough to know what is needed to overcome them, or at least hold them to a draw - something Pompey have not done on the ground for 14 years. The former Spurs striker, whose old ....

John Utaka, Lauren, Lucien Aubey, Sean Davis, Richard Hughes, Arnold Mvuemba andMilan Baros all played - and realistically, any of them could feature against a ....

Fans' Anger Over Kick-off Changes

Pompey fans have hit out at the constant changes to their fixture list after being lfet with just one Saturday game in April.

New Hope For Training Ground

Pompey may yet to get to build their purpose-built new training ground in the Fareham area.  Their hope looked dead when Fareham council, backed by English Heritage, refused their plans for a site at Titchfield, but now they have opened talks with the local authority, with rumours that a fresh venue is being looked at. Pompey have appealed against the refusla ofthe Titchfield scheme, which would hold considerable benefits for the local community and for the area's schools, but ....
