Almost a year to the day, and an old face returns once more, some call him 'Jamie's dad', some call him 'floppy chops', but he shall be not be called by a name, in fact he shall be known as 'he who shall not be named' or Voldermort to us.
Time has probably mellowed most pompey fans, you can probably see the reasoning why he left now, club in debt, best players to be sold, and Uncle Draco Levy offering a bottomless pit in North London.
Still back to Fratton he comes, with Niko, Jermain, Peter, old Joe and bagman Bondie all in tow.
Now though, if we can have a repeat of the last time he sat in the away dugout, we can all go home very happy.
The media has been all over the return of old Volders, the most tenuous links have been used to associate anyone who has an opinion the right to be interviewed, but for me, the talking should start on the pitch now, all ex-players can go up to the bar after the match and have a love-in later.
David James is fit, Paul Hart indicated he was probably fit enough for wednesday's game, so he will stand between the posts.
O'Hara is the only enforced absentee, Spurs being his parent club denies him the opportunity to impress his 'other' manager.
Mokoena will probably step in, either that or Belhadj in a more attacking role, I'd prefer the Algerian myself.
If there ever was a player with a point to prove, its the Prince, he has been highly impressive so far, and will be out to show his worth once more.
Palacios looks the most likely to dip out, he only returns tomorrow morning form South America.
Defoe may be on the bench as he nurses his bust hand, while Crouch and Keane get another chance to show they are a pairing up front.
King and Woodgate are both fit to return, giving awelcome boost to defensive options.
I reckon he may get more stick than the others, although Defoe deserves the most.
More than a few familiar faces on show, but who will come out on top? place your guess here.
