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.

1/1/1892: Ernest Thompson
1/1/1894: James Mackie
1/1/1896: Dave Watson
1/1/1896: William Lewry
1/1/1915: Archibald Young
1/1/1933: Alex Stenhouse
1/1/1935: Brian Snowdon
1/1/1982: Luke Rodgers
1/1/1991: Kieran Djilali

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Ernest Thompson, James Mackie, Dave Watson, William Lewry, Archibald Young, Alex Stenhouse, Brian Snowdon, Luke Rodgers and Kieran Djilali - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Thompson, Mackie, Watson, Lewry, Young, Stenhouse and Snowdon were all well before my time - most way, way too early for me and not even known by name.

However, I recall both Rodgers and Djilali from brief spells with Pompey a few years back - Djilali's even briefer than Rodgers' who did score a few goals for the Blues.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 34
Won - 11
Drawn - 10
Lost - 13

I do remember plenty of the previous games played - and it's a traditional game to play - but I can claim only the one from 2007 at Fratton Park when we drew with Spurs.

What are your memories of Thompson, Mackie, Watson, Lewry, Young - all too early I would think, Stenhouse, Snowdon - both probably too soon too, Rodgers and Djilali 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.
