The last 3 games. Most painful was the win over Grimsby in 1992. Another goal & we would have been promoted. As it was Grimsby came down & played like their lives depended on it. West Ham were second & we blew up to Leicester in the play offs.

Pompey MotM at Hartlepool

Pompey went into the penultimate game with a slim chance of a top 3 finish. A 2-0 win at Hartlepool saw the Blues do what we needed but wins for others ended those chances.

Jeepers keepers! Freebie options explored

An emergency loan arrival of a goalie has been ruled out by the Football League but this doesn't mean a free agent cannot be signed by Pompey should a suitable option be found?
