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.
