On this day in history...13th July
A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama.
No Pompey games have previously played on this day.
Due to this lack of games, well, none of them it will be straight onto the other feature - again courtesy of PompeyRama - looking at those Pompey personalities - past or present - who have a birthday on this day.
13/7/1931: Jim Cairney
13/7/1936: Ray Crawford
Happy birthday to Jim Cairney and Ray Crawford - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.
Both Cairney - who I cannot say I know anything about - and Crawford were before my time watching football let alone Pompey so I didn't see either of them play. I would suspect some did though, certainly Crawford anyway.
Crawford is a person I know well enough from his commentary on football his regular contributions to the News and his presence if football full stop but never saw him as Crawford the footballer.
What are your memories of Cairney and/or Crawford from their Pompey days?

Worthy of a new deal?
So, Danny Rose, as we know, isn't going to play again this season. As things stand this would mean he'll not pull on a Pompey shirt again as his contract expires in the summer.
Sickening Rotherham winner
Losing on Saturday was bad enough, the fact this was an added time winner more so. The cherry on the cake was the fact Rotherham's goal came from ex-Pompey full back Joe Mattock.
