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.

Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

Cushioning the blow

Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.

Swindon striker in 'Pompey's sights'

Michel Smith, who was of course on loan last season, could return? He's still in 'Pompey's sights' by all accounts after Swindon informed him he's 'surplus to requirements' now.
