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.

6/1/1927: Reg Pickett
6/1/1932: Phil Gunter

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Reg Pickett and Phil Gunter - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Both Pickett and Gunter are well before my time and not really known to me either in all honesty.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 12
Won - 3
Drawn - 2
Lost - 7

We've not seen too many games on this day since 1990 but I do recall most since that time. I can claim the one game though - the FA Cup win at Fratton Park against Wigan a decade ago.

What are your memories of Pickett and/or Gunter - I suspect both are too soon for anyone reading though - 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?

Went to Cardiff in 1968 - fifty years ago and got soaked, game should never have been played.

The late Phil Gunter taught me at school.

Rotherham - New York Stadium - 20th January

A point last weekend wasn't bad, even though Pompey held the lead. However, having lost at Bristol Rovers and drawn with Scunthorpe a play off push could do with a Rotherham win.

Pompey MotM against Scunthorpe

Nathan Thompson's performance was seen as the best one from a Pompey player against Scunthorpe last Saturday.
