I know we have the FA Cup Final to look forward to, and yes, we all hope we slay the dragons & win it.

And yes we can look forward to being in Europe & challenging many others in the UEFA Cup.

If you remember the pain & aggro of getting hold of 34,000 tickets for our semi & 25,000 for the final have a moment & think that this years UEFA Final is at the City of Manchester Stadium. It holds 44,000.

Rangers & the Russians only get 13,000 tickets each. That’s all. What a naff amount. Your team gets to a European final & you get 13,000 tickets. What a shambles.

Great to know the fans are being looked after again!

For now I will settle for winning the FA Cup but imagine if we were able to get to next years final & be offered 15,000ish tickets?

  • The Cup Final and promise of the UEFA Cup have destroyed my end of season Premier enjoyment. Does anyone else agree.

  • No oo7. We have plenty of end of seasons to come but we may not have another FA Cup for a long time.

  • I would imagine it would depend on where the final would be held, but you would think we would sell this amount where ever it was.

  • would we really sell this many if it was in greece, russia, bulgaria etc.? i have a feeling we might struggle a bit. remember how many liverpool fans there were in hongkong compared to pompey fans!

  • Liverpool fans in hong kong 50% of the residents 40% Manure fans 5% Arsenal 5% the rest it’s the same all over the far east, I take your point on eastern europe thou as it would be mid week too, but I am putting pompey on the map in Chiang Mai (Thailand) have a 5’x3′ Pompey flag outside our music pub there.
