I am sure Pompey seem to be playing Liverpool in Cup matches an awful lot in the last few years.

And after Liverpools performance against Luton, I don’t hold out much hope either. Liverpool seem to have a good team spirit these days.

And on the subject of Luton – Liverpool, that has to be one of the greatest matches of the F.A. Cup in recent years. Luton played with great skill throughout the match and were it not for sublime goal from Alonso and a great performance from the sub (name???), they would have been outclassed and well and truly beaten. But they never gave up hope. You can ignore the last goal, apart from the guy who won £25,000 by placing a bet of £200 that Alonso would score from his own half this season.

Oh well, we struggled to beat Ipswitch reallly, and against Liverpool ? I don’t think we’ll be progressing much further in the cup this season. That will give us a good excuse to concentrate on Premiership survival at least.
