A blank day for me. Only missed about 10 home games in 25 years & 2002 was one of those. Having a fab time in the USA at the time!

Forty two years ago I was in Birmingham watching Pompey thrash Villa 5-3 - not many times you see a side score five on the road!! Manager Tommy Docherty was sacked on the Monday! I also wrote a review on the matchday programme a

Oh and I went to Luton 1976 too and was given a tour of the Big Match TV truck too by Brian Moore.

Vital View - League 2, 25th-26th March 2017

With Doncaster and Plymouth yet to play Portsmouth took advantage to close the gap and extend it on the chasing pack. Newport & Leyton Orient look likely to be relegated.
