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.

30/12/1950: Billy Rafferty

From the Ed


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

I know of Rafferty by name and - the limited - others have told me about him but his Pompey days were before my time so didn't actually see him play for the Blues.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 9
Won - 2
Drawn - 3
Lost - 4

Despite not having many games I do recall a fair few from recent years and can claim one too as I was at Fratton Park for the defeat against Arsenal in 2009.

What are your memories of Rafferty 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?

Dec 77 is one that sticks in my mind for some reason, depressing days, we were a appalling side dispite having the likes of David Kemp, Steve Foster and Bobby Stokes in the side. There was only one way we were heading and that was down and nearly out the league. Lucky for us a certain Mr Frank Burrows arrived and we fought our way back.

Pompey MotM at Rotherham

Nathan Thompson's performance was seen as the best one from a Pompey player against Rotherham in the defeat in South Yorkshire at the weekend.

Worthy of a new deal?

So, Danny Rose, as we know, isn't going to play again this season. As things stand this would mean he'll not pull on a Pompey shirt again as his contract expires in the summer.

Sickening Rotherham winner

Losing on Saturday was bad enough, the fact this was an added time winner more so. The cherry on the cake was the fact Rotherham's goal came from ex-Pompey full back Joe Mattock.
