A vague memory of a dull encounter with the mighty Walsall, my only match. Interesting to see we lost to a top Spurs team in '67 as they went on to win the FA Cup. Let's not spend any time on our defeat to Villa in '53.

Four games for me going back to Spurs in the Cup in 1967. Some day that was Pompey took an estimated 25,000 fans to WHL and Spurs have not had a gate that big since!
