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...

15/3/1969: Gianluca Festa

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Gianluca Festa - the Pompey player from the Blues' past born on this day.

Remember Festa well from his brief spell with Pompey. He made himself a popular figure at Fratton Park didn't he.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 18
Won - 11
Drawn - 3
Lost - 4

A great day as 11 of the 18 previously played have been won with only 4 lost. The other 3 have been drawn.


Can recall the most recent - and others - but wasn't at it. However, I did go to Anfield for the 4-1 defeat against Liverpool in 2010. I also took in the 2-0 win against Aston Villa in 2008 at Fratton Park.

What are your memories Festa from his Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them too?

There for the 4 wins in 94, 95, 03 & 08. a very good day. Vivid memories of the 03 game as we beat a good Wolves 1-0, they went up as play off winners. 08 and a great prem game against a good Villa side.

08,03&75...Missed a couple,but 08 I remember the OG the most as their goalie raced out of his area because I think it was Defoe who chased a long ball with a defender & he smashed it as hard as he could onto the defender & it absolutely flew into the net.I am annoyed as I can't remember who the defender was.It went in at the Milton End...03 was part of the promotion season & 1 of the very best in my 46 yrs of following...as for 75, mind is blank...but did see Festa of course,more 03 memories

Forde looked the keeper we had been missing when signed from Millwall. Admittedly he had a wobble during the season but all things considered could Pompey have asked for more?
