Fair Play To Pompey.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Amidst the pomp and circumstance
Of our history being made
Spare a thought for Avram Grant’s brave side
Who ran us close, despite not being paid?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A cricket score predicted
By the know-alls on the day
As Jamo and his three white sticks
Kept a rampant forward line at bay.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Pompey goal was surely blessed?
As our efforts failed to miss
Three wooden guardians and a keeper dressed
In a lurid bright pink kit.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Would those misses be our downfall
To be rue’d when full time came?
By half time predicted hat-full
Seemed a cert just like their pen.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 In truth The Gods shone down on us
When their penalty was scuffed
Within minutes we were out in front
With that one strike just enough.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 We can blame the pitch, and uprights
Blame the colour of the ball
But a Pompey team what gave us a fright
Is whom we should applaud!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 When the whistle blew at Wemberly
And “The Double” won was ours
That’s the first time that I’ve ever seen
A losing side with a massive stay behind and cheer “em” crowd!


A really enjoyable Cup Final, not just because we won, but because Pompey and their masses of fans turned up, to give it a right go. Thus proving the so called pundits wrong who predicted a one sided high scoring hammering for Pompey. Wrong again lads, but that is one of the wonders of our The F.A Cup is it not, it’s so unpredictable?
Peace. Kev
Editor Note : . Yeah totally agreed Kev.And how great to see the Pompey fans stay behind and not flock out as i’m sure our oft-spoilt Chelsea fans would have. But i have to say it was played in a great spirit and to a man and woman and child we all stood and applauded and cheered the Pompey players (and their fans)
for a great performance and great support as they stepped up
for that final bow..it was emotional as they say …and that Pompey pen was heart in mouth time …Crispin
