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...

16/5/1977: David Waterman
16/5/1992: John Marquis

Happy birthday to David Waterman and John Marquis - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

I always thought Waterman was a better defender than credited for, not a world-beater by any means but not a bad footballer to be fair.

Marquis, it didn't really happen for him during his loan at Fratton Park - in fairness the case with some of the other numerous loan away from Millwall too. But, at Doncaster, it seemed to click for him.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 1
Won - 0
Drawn - 0
Lost - 1

Pompey have only ever played the one game on this day - so far - and this ended in the disappointment of a loss.

I wasn't at this 1-0 defeat for Pompey at Filbert Street, Leicester's win giving them the upper hand over the Blues in the play-off semi-final of 1993.

What are your memories of Waterman and/or Marquis from their Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them too?

There in 1993 at the Forest ground. A very late goal giving them a slender lead which proved so important. No Paul Walsh due to suspension & that really hurt us. Awful memories.
