OMG. Away to Aldershot in 1980. Went up on mini-bus as a 13 year old with other lads from the Sunday league team I played for, this does make feel old!!! Also 1990 to Sheff Utd, home to Forest in 2001 & that great win over the Mancs on Easter Saturday in 2007.

Wow another long list for me - Blackpool in 1973 bro got married for the first time - lost count now! - and I arrived late but Ray Hiron waited until just after half time to score the winner. Had a good evening too!

Northampton in 1979 and Aldershot on Easter Monday 1980 as promotion loomed - the Recreation Ground packed and Colin Garwood who score the winner the previous years game is now in the opposition. I am stood next to a tree and it spontaneously combusts!!

Then Manyoo in 07 what a day that was!!

Away day Blues

We can be brilliant one game and then woeful the next...usually after we've won (usually pretty well) at home but then we lose away, as we did at Blackpool.

Vital View - League 2, 27th September

A lead at was extended by Plymouth with Blackpool recording a surprising win, talking of which Wycombe's five-one win against Crewe was certainly a 'surprising' win.

Match highlights - Blackpool 3-1 Pompey

The mystery that is Pompey and our dodgy away form continued with another defeat suffered at Blackpool, who hadn't won at home since the first game of the season before this 3-1 win.
