My late mother's birthday and I was at five of those games including the two five goal defeats by Brum. We could have got something from both games at fratton Harry Harris hit the bar with the final kick and at St Andrews we were 3-0 down in twenty minutes with Geoff Vowden on fire but it should have been 3-3 at half time with any luck (it was 3-2), two late goals sealed our fate.

Winning thw next three games made up it though.

Nathan Thompson - A Swindon perspective

Prior to his departure for Wigan, Paul Cook wanted Nathan Thompson at Pompey. Interest was retained by Kenny Jackett, who completed his free transfer signing from Swindon last week.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.
