Ouchhh, what a day today will be & no doubt more dark days to follow. Anyway, lots of memories here especially that away win at Boro when we won 4-2 on the way to the cup semi in '92. Only one match for me, Coventry in '02. Happy birthday to two great players Alan Biley & Pedro Mendes. Those two did so much for Pompey, think of their goals to put a smile on your face.

As a Spurs fan, but come on we are all members of the same big family, we are all football fans, I offer my sincere condolences to you guys. You are amongst the best supporters out there and don't deserve this, somebody or bodies should be asked to answer some very difficult questions. I watched a TV interview this morning with your John Westwood, what an impressive guy, living proof that you can't judge a book by it's cover, I in company with others, no doubt, misjudged him due to his outrageous appearance. In closing I wish you guys GOOD LUCK, I have no doubts that you will bounce back.
