Congrats to Uncle Avram and his Pompey team (he said, through clenched teeth). God knows they deserve a break. Still, I can’t see them beating Chelsea in the final. However, I didn’t see them beating Tottenham either, so there you go. Shit happens.

Spurs had a shocking, hair-tearing day in front of goal with Peter Crouch particularly wasteful, although Crouch’s ‘goal’ should have stood – that was never a foul by Niko Kranjcar on David James; James knew it too. Crouch might have had a hat-trick, at least, but didn’t bring his shooting boots to Wembley. Bah.

And did it have to be Kevin-Prince Boateng to stick the knife in? Ex-Spurs player haunts Spurs shock (see Darren Bent). Not again.

  2. syndex says:

    Does that put pompey in europe next year ?

  3. Chris says:

    @syndex: Pompey cannot apply for the requisite UEFA license to play in Europe due to going the club going into administration, but I believe they are planning an appeal.

  4. fakkin comical spurs!! says:

    Thanks for the update Chris!!! If Pompey are not allowed to play in Europe next year, consideringtheir dire financial needs, then it would be a fakkin travesty of justice by EUFA!!!! And Im a Spurs fan!!! UP POMPEY!!!!! They deserverd their result, and I have to say I could see it coming the longerthe game progressed!!! Well done to them, mistaken refereeing or not!! The pitch is apparrently as much to blame as the players or the reffing so who gives a phuk?? The history books will show Tottenham 0 Portsmouth 2……. But ifd EUFA deny Portsmouth their chance to earn a few shekels back after such a horrible season for them, then i can honestly sayi will turn away from football forever because it stinks from the hierarchy DOWN!!!!! Portsmouth deserve their place in Europ next year simples!!! #:)

  5. oh ok. says:

    well, considering a fair few members of Pompey (David James including) blame the EUFA for their monetary issues in the first place… good luck.

  6. Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
