So Pompey have drawn Vitoria SC from Portugal in the UEFA Cup.
I could do with an away trip to sunny Portugal, just not so sure I could get away with it right now.
Oh well, I’m just glad that Pompey are in Europe for the first time in my life time that I can remember.
I shall just have to find out which non-terrestrial station will be broadcasting it and bemoan the fact that I don’t have a subscription for it.
The rest of the draw looks pretty good for British clubs too:
Portsmouth v Vitoria SC (Portugal) Manchester City v AC Omonia (Cyprus) Nancy (France) v Motherwell Everton v Standard Liege (Belgium) Litex Lovech (Bulgaria) v Aston Villa Tottenham v Wisla Krakow (Poland)
Jogue acima o pompey, pompey jogam acima as they say in Portugal.
