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.

12/1/1962: Noel Blake
12/1/1969: Robert Prosinecki
12/1/1974: Ivica Mornar

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Noel Blake, Robert Prosinecki and Ivica Mornar - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

I know of Blake well but he was a player at Pompey before my time. Prosinecki, well what can you say. He is still one of the greatest - despite being out of shape and past his very best when with the Blues - footballers I've ever seen.

Didn't really see much of Mornar, who didn't really do much with Pompey though all things considered, did he?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 14
Won - 5
Drawn - 5
Lost - 4

Not too many game played recently but I can claim the most recent at Coventry in 2010 when we won that dramatic FA Cup replay at the Ricoh Arena.

What are your memories of Blake, Prosinecki and/or Mornar 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?

Some great birthdays. The outstanding RP, a real pleasure to have seen him play, even at the end of his career. Shame it was in a struggling side. Noel Blake was a giant at the back & waqs part of the successful mid 90s team under Bally. Ivan gave his all even if at times a headless chicken as we found our feet in the prem 14-15 years ago. There for the games in 1980 & 1991.

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.

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