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.

26/9/1933: John Davies
26/9/1944: Alan Stephenson
26/9/1979: Jon Harley

From the Ed


Happy birthday to John Davies, Alan Stephenson and Jon Harley - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Davies and Stephenson were both before my time and not really known to me, the former most likely wasn't seen by many, if any.

I do recall the spell of Harley but his days with clubs before his time at Fratton Park are what he'll be best recalled for - he did ok though.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 15
Won - 4
Drawn - 3
Lost - 8

Awful day, all being well it'll improve this evening when Bristol Rovers come to Fratton.

I'll not be at the Park tonight so the visit from Sunderland in 1998 - which ended in a draw - will remain my only game.

What are your memories of Davies - probably too early for anyway, Stephenson and/or Harley 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?

1987 & a battling home win in Div 1, a rare success. There in 1989, 1998 & 2004. Ironically we won at Bristol Rovers 2 years ago & we top of Div 2.

Character at Charlton praised

Pompey had to work hard but given the chances we had a victory at the Valley was probably warranted against Charlton on Saturday.

Revenge, a quarter of a century in the making

What did I say? I wasn't entirely sure what way it would go - I did think there would be a winner - but eventually stuck my neck out and said Pompey would sneak it at Charlton.
