FA Cup, one game away from Wembley.

 

Ground capacity 20,224.

 

Large number of tickets to Birmingham - sold out.

 

Home tickets - Thursday morning on their website they still have tickets (around £25) available!

But they are "The Bestest Fans in the World ™" so it is obviously about quality not quantity.

If they get to the semi and take their full allocation then it's a disgrace.

After getting 10,315 at home in the cup against Sunderland and 11,214 against Coventry then they don't deserve the slightest any success at all...

You could say the same for us, we only had 12,000 against Torquay didn't we? Now we're taking 44,000 to Wembley....

to be fair, Birmingham were allocated 3,000 so its a massive 17,000 fans the skates would have to find.

 

No team outside of the top four could surely get 17,000 for a FA Cup quarter final against a premiership side....

 

 

 

 

...but some could get 18,786 for a FA Cup 3rd round tie against a non-league club! (Saints Luton 2nd Jan)

Our attendances have slowly increased over the season as the feelgood factor came back, not necessarily success but just the feeling that this club was moving in the direct direction for once...

 

There is the world of difference between the first round of the Johnsons Paint and the third round of the FA cup especially when your club can't pay the wages

 

Now if we can get 12,000 against Torquay in the Johnsons Paint and Pompey get less less against Premier league opposition in the FA cup, knowing money is so tight they can't pay their players on time, then they don't deserve success....

 

F u c k them...

Don't forget the infamous adult tickets for 20 quid throughout the entire season and the kids for a quid initiative they've been giving out all season in the league.... yet they still manage only around 14,000-15,000 LOL

 

I blame the annexation of the People's Republic of Hayling Island for the downturn.

Unless SMS is extended to accommodate 50000+ this will probably stand as the highest supporters attendance in the club's history

 

i guess that statistic alone makes this a landmark "i was there" occassion.
