Well there you go fellas, I hope this all makes sense?

Hopefully this will give everyone that deserves a chance to get a ticket for Wembley, exactly that a chance to get a ticket for Wembley. It seems a fair and just way and all being well I should be able to get mine… something I had been worried that I would not!

One more thing that we have to also take into account is some work taking place on the tracks in the London area, so this ‘could’ cause chaos in and around London for those catching the train – this was the reason for the changing of dates for the West Ham game, orginally taking place on the weekend of the semi final…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
