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...

From the ed: Now, I remember going to the Plymouth game although I cannot remember too much of it!

I do recall being the main cheerleader trying to get the singing going though! I am not usually that vocal, singing wise - more so away - but that shows how much moonshine I had consumed...

Remember more about Reading, the only other one for me on this day!

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...

Vivid memories of going to Oxford in 1993. Having sold Guy Whittingham, we brought in Lee Chapman, who despite scoring twice we couldn't avoid defeat. This was a team that at the end of the previous season had the heartbreak of losing in the play-offs after missing promotion to the newly named Premier League. Also there in 2004 when we drew with Brum & Robbie Savage scored from a free kick that beat Shaka.

Nice steady opening against average enough teams

The words of PompeyFrippy, not mine. But all things considered I think he's right when you look at the opening games of Pompey's 2017-18 season.
