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.

19/8/1996: Jack Whatmough

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Jack Whatmough - the Pompey player from the Blues' past born on this day.

I wouldn't have thought many of us wouldn't know who he is and I'd be amazed if we haven't seen Whatmough play - something he could well do this afternoon when Walsall visit Fratton Park?

Now onto the games previously played, obviously ahead of the Saddlers.

Played - 15
Won - 6
Drawn - 4
Lost - 5

Plenty of games played and Pompey have won more than anything else so a decent day - can it continue this afternoon?

I remember a number of the games but my previous - I'll be at Fratton this afternoon though - is limited to the last two only, the win against Northampton in 2014 and the defeat at Birmingham in 2009 for a midweek trip to St Andrew's.

What are your memories of Whatmough from his Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them too?

Pompey v Southend - Follow On Twitter - 18-11-17

Pompey are at Fratton Park with Southend the visitors today, this will be a 3pm kick-off.

No selection dilemma ahead of Southend

The more options the better, so Jackett having another two available for selection, kept out of the Blackpool win, for Southend is a positive headache.
