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.

15/12/1975: Aaron Flahavan
15/12/1993: Jed Wallace

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Aaron Flahavan and Jed Wallace - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

The late Flahavan almost certainly would have retired by now - I assume - but he'll never be a player many of us forget. It was such a shame he passed so young. Have plenty of memories of him.

As for Wallace, what a player he was during his time at Fratton Park. Stayed for longer than I thought he would but struggled for football at Wolves. Now at Millwall, on a permanent basis, but still at Championship level, where a player of his ability belongs.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 12
Won - 4
Drawn - 4
Lost - 4

Not too many games in recent years but I was at the draw with Preston in 2012 at Fratton Park - cannot recall much about the game mind so not sure if it was a memorable goalless draw or a forgettable one.

What are your memories of Flahavan and Wallace 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?

12,07,93&84...07 I think was Berbatov,93 was the Cup replay & Benny scored ( in extra time) I think to win the game & of course a lucrative replay v Man Utd...got a win in 84 with my hero Biley on the scoresheet.Of the b'days both but did love Jed a lot,he carried us a lot whilst he was here.He'd be great in our current team....
