Blackburn in 68, Orient, Plymouth and no Bristol Cities (I think).

Robbins and City games only, apart from the last 10 years I tended to be abroad having seen Pompey mostly give up on their season by this time.

The 3 home games from 1987 to 1996. Nothing to memorable there. Though the home defeat to Plymouth in 1987 was a shock, thankfully it didn't derail our promotion.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.

Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...
