From the Ed


A birthday free day today so straight onto the games previously played.

Played - 21
Won - 8
Drawn - 4
Lost - 9

Not too much in the 21 games played but with an 8:9 ratio of wins to defeats we've still lost more than anything else - the other 4 have been drawn.

I claim three today - the 1-0 defeat to Bury in 2015 along with a 2-1 loss against Aston Villa, both at Fratton Park. The third was a 1-0 win over Bolton in 2009, also at Fratton.

What are your memories of the games previously played today?
