At Notts County in 1993 when a Paul Walsh header was enough to keep up in the automatic promotion race. We thought we were almost there. West Ham game finished later & they won 4-1, I think, those goals were enough to send them up. The home win to Watford in 1997 & that first ever prem win over the Mancs in 2004, what a fabulous day that was. 3 games, 3 wins, let's tonight makes it 4 out of 4.

Boro in 71, Charlton, Donny, and like Matt Notts with my son for his first away game! Not three wins but no defeats

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.

Debut delight...kind of!

It wasn't a result, and in many ways a performance, for Sheff United loanee Freeman to remember too fondly as he didn't really have a great game against Orient? Then again who did!

On this day in history...10th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 10th February.

Tubbs has left the building

Tubbs has finally left Pompey; perhaps his destination is something of a surprise then again there had been some 'rumours' recently of an Eastleigh interest.
