The last 4 homes 1979-2001. That 1979 win in Div 4, with a crowd of over 23,000 to see us beat promotion rivals Bradford, great days. A generation of youngsters starved of football success that began with the climb back out of the lowest league.

Now 1984 was a famous well infamous day in Pompey history as they lost their unbeaten record at Plough Lane in unusual circumstances. Played in a gale Pompey went 1-0 down just before the break and when they kicked off they managed to score a goal for the Dons without them touching the ball as Noel Blake rolled the ball past Alan Knight who was bent down feeling his knee!!! Kevin Dillon also missed a second half penalty too.

I was there and Bristol City in 1971 the Bradford game as described by Matt and Leicester in 1990.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.

Interest in Plymouth midfielder? Unfortunately not

Apparently, having stolen the League Two title from Plymouth, we'll not be taking the Pilgrims' best player, ex-Celtic midfielder Carey, currently out-of-contract at Home Park.
