MOM has to be Dimi Konstantopoulos - followed by the rest of the team. Certainly a brilliant performance by the Swans.

Well done Swans, despite being in for a dreadful time from my Uncle Brian and co, who are season ticket holders, you deserved to win. Tony Adams will take us down, and if you play like that you will swap places with us! Don't fancy swapping Martinez with us do you?

You outplayed us. Simple. We tried, but something was wrong. Best of luck in the next round. Bet Cardiff are miffed as well.

two very different clubs. one on the up, one on the down. be warned though, the premiership is not as good as it;s made out to be!

Come of it Carpet, we have loved our time in the premiership, yes, there are some primadonnas and the TV pulls the fixture list around, but if given the choice, would you opt for relegation? Of course not! Stop trying to make yourself feel better about possible relegation. We need to pull it together sharpish. The club need to realise the cheap option on adams is a mistake, and need to move quickly. Truth is Pompey would do better to sign 1 quality midfielder and a new manager who can get the chaps to perform than 3 new signings on the field.

Well done to the Swans, your team did you really proud out there. Good luck in the Cup, i hope you get a draw that rewards you, and good luck for the rest of the season.

You guys did really well! I can see why Scotland is a folk hero - real character and I always like a chunky bloke who makes defences look slow (mid you, not that Sol is exactly Usain Bolt...) but both teams got everything they deserved. Looks like some of your fans got a bit of iffy treatment being shunted out the South stand at some point in the first half - I felt awful to see a dad with his young lad in tears because some Pompey moron was shouting and shoving them - really sorry that what should have been a brilliant day out for them was ruined by one of my idiot townsmen. And much respect to your mascot - can't be an easy outfit to wear and to come all this way. Good luck to you and will be watching your progress in the cup with interest.

Great great result and performance from everyone in a Swansea shirt! Cheers for the congrats and messages Pompey fans, hope you avoid the drop. You do have enough quality there to stay up. But now for Fulham!!!
