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.

28/12/1962: Andy Perry
28/12/1980: Lomana LuaLua
28/12/1981: Danny Webber

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Andy Perry, Lomana LuaLua and Danny Webber - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Perry isn't someone I can say I remember at all to be honest. However, I think LuaLua should be someone that most of us recall? If it wasn't from his trademark celebration - or how frustrating he could sometimes be - it would be for his goals in that demolition of the lot done the road that time, I four-one will never forget the game where that said celebration resulted in him being forced off in the end.

As for Webber, I remember him too but we definitely didn't see the best of him at Fratton Park.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 27
Won - 8
Drawn - 12
Lost - 7

I recall loads of the games played on this day but can only claim the most recent - a draw with Luton at Fratton in 2015. Cannot recall much about the game itself though, maybe it was a drab goalless draw?

What are your memories of Perry, LuaLua and Webber 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?

No midfield addition...ahead of Rotherham anyway

With Rose out for the season, on-loan Cardiff man O'Keefe for the next three months, a defensive midfielder is needed, right? They could arrive, but not ahead of Rotherham tomorrow.

Blues' line up at Rotherham?

The Pompey season continued with a draw against Scunthorpe. Well, that has been and gone so we move forward and go again against Rotherham in, obviously in League One, on Saturday.

Vital Preview - League One - 20th January 2018
