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...

17/8/1987: Marc Wilson
17/8/1949: Peter Price
17/08/1900: William Moffatt
17/08/1986: Marcos Painter

From the ed: More defeats than win previously, Morecambe remains very fresh in the mind - 3-0 should have been at least doubled though really as we had them on toast!

Torquay the only other one for me today.

What about you?

Just the home win defeat to Charlton in 1993. Fond memories of our comeback 3-2 at Palace, not so of the 4-0 lose to Chelsea in 2008.
