From the Ed


No birthdays today so it's straight onto the games previously played.

Played - 3
Won - 1
Drawn - 0
Lost - 2

Another game with only a handful played - in fact 2 of the 3 games have ended in defeat but the one that REALLY mattered was won.

It's amazing to think the FA Cup triumph of 2008 is almost a decade ago now - then again with some things that have happened at Pompey since it can feel like a lifetime.

This is the only game I've been at - I wasn't even born when the other two were played - and beating Cardiff 1-0 at Wembley to win the FA Cup is a game I'll never forget.

Have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them?
