Well I have!! And a strange list it is with Newport followed by Newport and then Brighton followed by Brighton!!

I start with Rotherham a game I have written about when Paul Denyer was thrown up front having never played there before and high flying Millers were thrashed by struggling Pompey. Only the forst Brighton game to add though.

The two Brighton homes games in 1990 & 1991. I took certain girlfriend to the 1990 game, we married a few years later & we got we divorced last year.
