On this day in history...25th May



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

No games on this day previously...

Another feature, again courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, sees us look at those Pompey personalities - past or present - who have a birthday on this day...

25/5/1942: Ron Davies
25/5/1927: Lindy Delapenha

Did you know that Delapenha was called Lindy because he was named after Charles Lindbergh the first man to fly the Atlantic? Lloyd Lindbergh Delapenha was born just four day after the epic flight ended.

He was also of course the first Jamaican player to play in England - not the first black player as many think.

Pompey Predictions League - update #9

The Pompey Predictions League is part of this site now isn't it. Would it be the same without? This continued with a defeat at Scunthorpe - Bristol Rovers visit next.

The Bristol Rovers Low Down

I feel Saturday's result against Scunny was one that many of us might have expected, and this game should be one we can bounce back for.

A run is coming... we think

Scunthorpe was always going to be a tough but confidence was high after the Fratton Park win over Fleetwood - successive home game against Bristol Rovers and Oldham could start a run?
