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.

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.

We know Danny you want to stay!

In case we had forgot Hollands has reminded us of his desire to stay with Pompey! I'm not 'desperate' either way in many ways but sorting this quickly would be best for all concerned.

Three more pre-season games announced

'Glamour ties' are loved but pre-season is about fitness and form so it doesn't matter if it's Barcelona or Bognor... Then again a trip to the Nou Camp wouldn't be turned down!

On this day in history...24th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 24th May.

Sheffield United loanee open to Pompey return

McNulty would welcome a permanent transfer to Pompey. Although the Sheffield United striker could well be part of new manager Wilder's plans, so the chances seem 50:50 at best?
