Knowing me knowing you - pdm2007
1 - Vital Pompey username?
1. pdm2007.

2 - Where do you come from/where do you currently live?
I was born in London, but worked for the Pompey News between 1969 and 1974. (One of my first jobs was to pick up the film from the ground at half-time to take back for the Sports Mail.) I went to most games, home and away, between the years 1975-1992, when I moved to the South West.

3 - How long have you been a Vital Pompey member?
Six months approx. (This was written way back in June/July 2008.)

4 - What do you think of Vital Pompey? Be brutally honest!
Excellent site where just about every Pompey topic is covered. I get the feeling the people on the site are REAL Pompey fans.

5 - How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
When the Pompey-Fans.com site was revamped, I didn't like it at all, and looked around for a new site ... that's when I found Vital Pompey.

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.
1969.

7 - How often do you get to watch Pompey?
Not often these days, as I'm semi-retired and cash constraints, plus the fact I live in west Cornwall, make it difficult. Am going to Wembley though...

8 - Who is your favourite Pompey Player - current and/or former?
Current: David James, because of his strength of character to shrug off all the bad times he's gone through.
Past: Mark Hateley... the epitome of a striker with both pace and power. Wish we had him now.. what a team we'd be!

9 - What is you favourite Pompey moment?
The away match at Northampton on the final day of the 79-80 season, when the 2-0 result won us promotion and started the club's march back to greatness.

10 - What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
Just to carry on the improvement on-field and off-field, to become a true top four team, without losing touch with our core supporters.

PLEASE NOTE
This feature has not been run for a while - hence why some of these answers might seem dated, but they are still fantastic! - and I apologise for this.

Great answers pdm - am I right in thinking that you weren't a Pompey fan before you worked for The News - if that's the case then I'm glad Pompey had such a great effect on someone! The Pompey Power!

Good article and I enjoyed checking out previous 'KMKY', particularly 'EastneyDave's last answer! Looks like quite a few old members have since left the site or am I missing something?

Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

Cushioning the blow

Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.

Swindon striker in 'Pompey's sights'

Michel Smith, who was of course on loan last season, could return? He's still in 'Pompey's sights' by all accounts after Swindon informed him he's 'surplus to requirements' now.

On this day in history...23rd June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 23rd June.
