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...

13/8/1984: Niko Kranjcar
13/8/1978: Benjani Mwaruwari
13/8/1913: Tommy Rowe
13/8/1983: Lubomir Michalik

From the ed: When we next play on the 13th we will be hoping it is third time luck, having lost our previous 2 games - of which I can claim the Brighton game as my only one I have attended.

I cannot recall too much about it, but can remember the fact we lost!

What about you?

Can you claim to have been in attendance for any of these games, if so share your thoughts below on any stories you have...

Happy birthday to Nico & Benjani, great players in recent years in those giddy days. There for home games in 1994 & 2005.
