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!!

Match Day Officials v Carlisle (25/2/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Carlisle United this Saturday.

Whatmough's Pompey hopes

Whatmough has made it clear he doesn't wish to go anywhere and remains hopeful of being offered a new Pompey deal.

Another right back targeted

Pompey could still sign former Birmingham defender Caddis - who had been training with Blackburn this month - despite the transfer window closing as he's a free agent.
