Five games for me and best memory is of the 3-1 win at Fulham in 1985. We parked on the bank of the Thames and during game there was a flood tide. After the game when we got back to the car it was flooded!!

Dave I lived then in Wandsworth so went to the Fulham game, you car boat types made the local papers! I've been to most of the games from the onwards, worst game was the match against Palace, quite frankly we were dreadfull, best game was against Blackburn, just a brilliant atmosphere and some good football, lualua may have even passed the ball to another Pompey player.

just norwich for me - always remember another fratton game against norwich in the 98/99 season i think? we travelled from devon ONLY to hear the game had been called off at around 1.30! my sister and i got dropped off at fratton station, only to find this out, luckily by the time ken and co had turned the mini bus round and headed off back the otherway towards the newcombe for a pint we had found out so were able to run up the road and jump in with them...

The last 5 home games for me. A great game with Blackburn a few years ago , when we battered them & Bellemy scored 2 great goals with their only 2 shots on target!
