On this day in history...15th 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.
15/7/1928: John Robertson
15/7/1984: Matt Tubbs
Happy birthday to John Robertson and Matt Tubbs - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.
Robertson was some way before my time so isn't known to me - I wouldn't have though anyone saw him play?
But Tubbs most, if not all, of us would have. It's still a little frustrating the way his Pompey career came to an end as he was a proven goalscorer. Hey ho, it worked out well for all concerned in the end.
However, all being well the latest ex-Bournemouth forward the Blues have signed can have a sustained impact at Fratton Park.
What are your memories of Robertson - I wouldn't think too many have any - and/or Tubbs from their Pompey days?
