Just the 2 home games in 1997 & 2000 but my most vivid memory is the 5-0 away win at Millwall where Merson got a standing ovation from the Millwall fans. For safety reason Pompey fans were not allowed tickets but a few did get in. Heaven only knows how they kept quiet during that fantastic win!!!

St David's Day!! Huddersfield in 69 and Wigan 1983 where if memory serves me Colin Sullivan missed apenalty and a run of seven wins came to an end - surely lightning won't strike twice?

Went to the Millwall game with the prawn sandwich brigade. The company was a sponsor and had constructed an incinerator near to the ground. The Millwall mob were quite friendly, the banter was good and the London pride flowing; my glass was over flowing with south coast pride ! I also went to the blades game I forget what a big game that used to be and what a well supported team they are.
