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.

3/2/1905: John Latimer
3/2/1972: Mart Poom
3/2/1984: Collins Mbesuma

From the Ed


Happy birthday to John Latimer, Mart Poom and Collins Mbesuma - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Latimer was not only well before my time - but that anyone on here - so isn't known to me to be honest. Poom I do recall but I think it fair to say the former Pompey goalkeeper is better known in the game from his spells at other clubs. As for Mbesuma, the less said the better!

Played - 12
Won - 2
Drawn - 5
Lost - 5

I claim the most recent game at Fulham. Recall this 1-0 defeat at Craven Cottage - cracking atmosphere that night - mainly because Balram Chainrai 'gained control' of Pompey after this game in 2010 didn't he...

What are your memories of Latimer - well before the time of anyone, Poom and/or Mbesuma their Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them too?

Same for me. Think 74 was the first ever league game on a Sunday at the Park. Pompey have not won on this day during my lifetime!! Hopefully today they will break that duck.
