Which would you rather: FA Cup-2010 or Play in CL-2010/11
Sfer! I agree with your posture here. The s/f game against Porthsmouth will certainly be our biggest match of the remaining season.
A win here brings the confidence to march on and throw everything we've got into getting the 4th spot - knowing fully well the FA Cup final will be played after the Prem season!
Haven said that, I hope our players will by no means under-estimate Pompey! The worst that can happen to us is complacency in that regards... Pompey has nothing to lose - being that they are destined for Championship, but all to gain by forcing their way to the FA Cup final, and perhaps WIN?
Also given our high level of injury casualties, a successful outing and clinching of the final ticket will surely remove a huge pressure off the team, before the run-in with the big 3!
