With it another birthday free day - two in a row now - we move straight onto the games previously played.

Played - 12
Won - 3
Drawn - 4
Lost - 5

Not a good day with only 3 wins from the 12 games played on this day. 5 have been lost with the other 4 drawn.

I do recall a good few of the games played in recent years but draw a blank today as haven't taken any in.

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?

Just the home defeat to Wolves in 1996. A few 1-1 away draws that revoke a few memories but not a lot on today.

Went to Bristol City in 1968 and our woeful away record showed again as we fell from the top of the table.

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?
