Knowing me knowing you - 007

Knowing me knowing you - 007
1 - Vital Pompey username?
007.

2 - Where do you come from/where do you currently live?
Portsmouth/Somerset.

3 - How long have you been a Vital Pompey member?
Just a few weeks. (written mid January 2008.)

4 - What do you think of Vital Pompey? Be brutally honest!
Vital is your own club, where you can voice your feelings to like-minded people. Get rid of frustrations, and then having shed them, find someone agrees with you and the day becomes perfect.

5 - How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
Browsing Pompey web sites.

6 - When did you first watch Pompey live - not on box unless this is the only way you have been able to see them? Not necessarily at Fortress Fratton though.
Fratton Park, 1949. As a 9 year old, catch three buses, on arrival at Fratton Park be passed overhead to a front position. All by oneself without a hint of trouble.

7 - How often do you get to watch Pompey?
Sadly not at all, travelling is difficult.

8 - Who is your favourite Pompey Player - current and/or former?
Peter Harris, the fastest footballer seen and not a bulging muscle in sight.

9 - What is you favourite Pompey moment?
On taking my first wife to Fratton Park to watch her first football match, at half time I asked if she was enjoying it. She replied that she found it difficult to follow, as both goalkeepers had the same coloured jersey!!! A second wife became a priority.

10 - What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
Future stability and player loyalty. I do not like the current fashion of buying a new team once a year.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Great stuff 007. A little older than me as you were passed down to the front I only heard about such things. Peter Harris a true legend of Pompey without doubt!!

ChrisW, indeed, the biggest matches in those days had approaching 50,000 on some special match days. Wolves were always a top fixture. Never did see Stanley Matthews, always injured, I am not sure but I do not think he ever played at Fratton Park, perhaps eastneydave could enlighten us.

He did because I saw him right at the end of his career in the early sixties. I was also talking to a chap recently who saw Pompey play at Stoke about the same time and Matthews making a rare appearance Roy Lunniss apart. I will see if I can find any details of Stan's Fratton appearances.

Vital View - League 2, 18th February 2017

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
