The last 5 home games from 1987+. The defeat to Newcastle in 1988 with Paul Cascoigne was our last home game in top flight, until 2003. The defeat in 2001 to Palace was one of the worst home performances in living memory!!!

For me Liverpool, Newcastle, Millwall and Leyton Orient.

Of interest 1977 was our only ever league visit to Field Mill, Mansfield. They celebrated promotion that night.

Baker has a Pompey future... apparently

A few eyebrows were raised when Carl Baker, who continues to be linked with Coventry, was left out of the squad to face Walsall. I think we've all see then social media reaction?

On this day in history...22nd August

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 22nd August.

Improvement needed

Milan Lalkovic, making his last appearance for Pompey since January, prior to a loan switch to Ross County, returned from injury to face his former club Walsall on Saturday.

Match highlights - Pompey 1-1 Walsall

Pompey are still unbeaten at Fratton Park - recovering from the defeat at Oxford - but unlike the Rochdale win we had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw against Walsall on Saturday.
