come Saturday;

In the words of the Kaiser Chiefs, I predict a riot. Portsmouth play Cardiff in the FA Cup final, the most prestigious domestic football trophy in the world.

1) Both teams have notoriously famous and violent 'firms'
2) Its basically England v Wales
3) They have history going back to an incident at Victoria tube station a few years ago when Pompey were coming back from a fixture up north and Cardiff were in London and it kicked off on the platform.
4) At the FA Semi-final against Barnsley its reported that Cardiff fans were spitting at and chucking pint glasses of urine at the statue of Bobby Moore outside Wembley Stadium. Its rumoured that West Hams 'firm' will turn up to pay them back for their disrespect.
5) I reckon that all major London 'firms' (Millwall, Chelsea etc.) will simply not be able to resist a ruck with Cardiffs famous 'Soul Crew' on home turf.

Compared to the 70's and 80's football these days is like going to a picnic.

There will always be sporadic outbursts at major games like there are sporadic outbursts at major events with thousands of people i.e. music festivals.

Yeah lock people up for ten years like that will ever happen lol, aint room in the prisons in case you failed to notice lol

mamjet have i upset you
Here's my prediction:

At half time it is 2-0 to Pompey, the crowd are well hammered. At full-time it is 2-2 and looking a bit ugly. In the last minute of extra time Pompey score an own goal (Mendes with any luck) and Cardiff win 3-2. The crowd goes ape, and the machine gunners open up from the touchline.

I am going to sit at home and cheer in between potting up tomatoes.

No chance of it happening on Saturday

Wednesday was a one off, and out of 100,000 p!ssed up jocks, it was only a few hundred who started the trouble

Mendes will have to knock that one in from the bench Whiffey. They seem to favour that waste of space Dioup at the moment.
