It is unbelievable to think that almost a week has passed already since Sol Campbell went up to hold aloft the FA cup – when Sol went up to lift the FA cup we were there, we were there… I still cannot stop singing that song!

It seems like only yesterday, as does the victory parade that attracted 200,000 people.

One thing that we do know is that it is a moment that can never be taken away from us, and no matter what the future brings we will always know that we have witnessed Pompey winning one of the biggest prizes and most sought after trophies there is in world football.

All that remains for me to say, with me doing a bit of ‘I told you so’ is to remind you that even from the very beginning – but even more so with each round that passed – I kept saying ‘we would win the cup’. I genuinely believed it, not just hoped it. Even when we had to face Manyoo on their own patch I still had this faith, I said ‘I was going to Manchester to see us win, not just for a day out’ and kept saying ‘our name is on the cup’ – and it most certainly is once again now, after such a long wait, forever more…

I have always been proud and unashamed to be a Pompey fan, but I have never been prouder than I am now, and 500m people around the world now know – if they did not before – the name of Portsmouth Football Club, 2008 FA cup winners!

When Sol went up to lift the FA cup we were there, we were there…
