Just the 2 home games with Brighton in 1990 & 91. Easter games of course. Happy Birthday Mr De Zeeuw, awesome player.

Brighton and a great trip to Boro. Flew up with some string& bag airline to what was teeside airport, Boro itself was a bit of a wasteland but the Nth Yorks and Durham area surrounding are really beautifull; well worth the trip.

Rotherham in 1977 I remember like yesterday - well it is only 33 years ago. Pompey had scored only one goal in four and manager Ian St John threw teenage midfielder Peter Denyer up front against the table topping Millers. The result goals galore and a thumping win. Didnt save Saint his job - sacked three weeks later.
