I have to confess, I don't think I've been to any of those games in the 70's, 80's or 90's. Looking at the results I don't regret that.

Yes some pretty dire results in the last 50 years. Only one for me, Palace at home in those dark days with Vegetable & Fckwick.

Opps, my memory is slipping. Actually Jim was manager. He was of course about to be replaced by Fckwick.

Oxford and Reading away and not one home game!! NO win for 55 years - glad we are not playing today.

No More Quarter Final Replays For Pompey

Should Portsmouth progress through to an FA Cup quarter final from the 2016/17 season onwards, the game will no longer be subject to a replay.

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.
