At the start of the season midtable bordering on the top ten was the aim for many Pompey fans, those of you that have followed this site since the summer at least will know I often harboured outside hopes of a finish high enough to gain entry into Europe next season so with us now approaching the final furlong our fate is in our own hands?

I would have loved to have won the cup this season but United put paid to that dream for this season on Saturday evening so that is one cup final we can’t look forward to but we still have fourteen of them between now and the last and possibly even decisive on the 13th May against Arsenal.

The league table doesn’t often lie does it so we are in the top six at present on merit, lets keep it that way! No club has a divine right to anything but after all we’ve been through over the years and the dramatic turnabout in fortunes without spending millions to achieve this we deserve our chance at a trip to the arse end of Latvia, or the darkest reaches of Bulgaria at the least!

It is now down to the players, with hopefully a little luck along the way to make the dream a reality and put in fourteen performances as if each and everyone were cup finals. We’ll do our part backing them all the way getting behind them as we always do when they take to the field so let’s begin this with our first cup final with Middlesbrough tonight, our destiny awaits…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
