7 for me starting in 1980 at home to Crewe, our promotion season out of Div 4. In recent years vivid memories of stuffung Derby 3-0 as we went for promotion in 1993. The ridiculous loss at home to Sheff Wed who were bottom, a win would have given us promotion & a weekend to party but we blew it & had to wait a few days to celebrate. Then three prem games with various teams & implications. Brum we needed to win as were fighting relegation. Arsenal was just fun & Newcastle was a week after winning the semi against WBA and again party time.

Actually gotta disagree with Matt for once - Arsenal fun? That was a vital point in the Great Escape!! Lua injured his ankle doing his somersaults too.

The Mansfield Low Down

PompeyFrippy looks ahead to Mansfield where Pompey MUST win in order to keep alive the hopes of beating Doncaster - who end this if they beat Exeter - and Plymouth to the title.

Over and out?

Noel Hunt's Pompey career could be over? A dislocated shoulder, at Hartlepool, means the former Southend man will not feature against Mansfield or Cheltenham.

Burgess - we can go again in league one

Christian Burgess, like the rest of us, is enjoying Pompey's promotion to league one BUT he's not content to settle at that level - he's already eyeing the Championship.

Winger returns but full back on his way out?

Ex-Chelsea & Walsall winger Lalkovic is back at Pompey, ahead of the proposed end to his Ross loan. Talbot looks as if his Blues days are numbered, a Chesterfield return is mooted?
