Record crowd day! 1949 and the ground I gather was licensed to hold 58,000. Now those who were there will tell you no way!

For me Gillingham and Birmingham.

Happy birthday Pedro - a member of the Pompey Trust.

Just Coventry in 2002 but vivid memories of that away win at Boro in the cup in 1992!!! Some great birthdays especially Alan Biley & Pedro Mendes. Legends of their time.

Begovic, sold to Stoke, via an aborted switch to Tottenham, setting Pompey back £1m in compensation, should be in the Bournemouth side following a £10m transfer from Chelsea.

Movement of the people

There will be no exodus but as Bob Marley said there would be movement of the people, actually 'movement of Jah people', at Fratton in order for Jackett to bring players to Pompey.
