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

2016-17 Champions Review: March

Every season has its highs and lows. The draw at home to Morecambe was a body blow for Pompey, but little did we know that the next home game against Crewe was to be our turning point.

Done and dusted - O'Brien joining Coventry

Academy graduate O'Brien, who went on to play for Barnet, Brentford and Dagenham following his release by Pompey, will leave Fratton Park again - he'll link up with Doyle at Coventry.

2016-17 Champions Review: February

A lot can change in the space of a few weeks, and with fixtures piling up in front of them, Pompey needed to find form if they were to make themselves serious contenders.
