Happy New Year to everyone connected with Vital & Pompey. All the home games from 1985 & the nightmare of the 4-4, enough said. To the draw with Spurs in 2007.

Pompey's first new years day bank holiday game came against Hull City in 1972 - it was a bore draw and how I wished that the idea had been forgotten - only 8,000 there too proved a point. After that there Cardiff, Oxford, Aldershot, Plymouth, Fulham, Reading, Arsenal, Norwich and Spurs. Think that makes ten I think.

No-one will ever forget the Fulam game in 1985

On this day in history...30th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 30th May.

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!
