(76) Play up Pompey!
Play up Pompey! Pompey play up!
Blue Army! Blue Army! Blue Army!
It's only been 69 years but Portsmouth are back in the F.A. Cup final!
On Saturday the finest, loudest supporters in Football will be cheering, chanting, drumming and singing for the Pride of the South.
Come on Boys! Bring it back home!
Saturday's final is the 127th since the competition began in the 1871-72 season.
We won it way back in 1939 when Portsmouth beat hot favourites Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-1.
Pompey actually has the unbeaten (and never could be beaten!) world record of holding on to the F.A. Cup for seven consecutive years, the longest any club has managed to keep the cup for.
Ok, it was last final to be played before a little thing called World War Two kicked off, and the competition didn't re-start until in 1945-46, but, come on, a record is a record!
Good luck Boys! Win it for the fans!
