1992 - the day we went to Highbury expecting to be thrashed by the mighty Liverpool and cane away totally dejected we could not book our Wembley tickets and the Anderton goal will live with every Pompey who was there forever. Add to that Palace away in 69 Hereford and Leeds.

Then of course on to 2008 and we are eventually at Wembley - the twin towers have gone but what ab occasion for nearly 40,000 fans who sang the Chimes for 90 minutes to celebrate our first game there for 66 years - the King did the rest!!

5 for me. The league games with Leeds in '86, Grimsby in '97 & Bristol city in '99. All unforgettable unlike the semi with Liverpool in 1992, face painted there with my best mate Dave, what a day, so gutted me didn't win. So that pain was eventually erased as we took to the Wembley stage in 2008, again with Dave, many friends & my brother. These moments are etched on our hearts & minds forever.
