Knowing me knowing you - Lysimachus

Knowing me knowing you - Lysimachus
1 - Vital Pompey username?
Hmm, a chance to put this to bed once and for all. Lysimachus was the name of one of the four generals who divided up Alexander the Great's empire after he died. I may be a bit of a history nut, but consider this: would it have been any better if I went for 'pompeycambs'?

2 - Where do you come from/where do you currently live?
I was born and I currently live in Cambridgeshire, in an area not too far from the city of Cambridge itself. I plan to get as far away from this place when I leave school though.

3 - How long have you been a Vital Pompey member?
Not sure. June 06? Definitely after the great escape.

4 - What do you think of Vital Pompey? Be brutally honest!
It's a great site. There are other unofficial Pompey sites out there of course, but Vital Pompey is part of the Vital Football network, there are fans writing articles and having a banter about their own clubs, as well as communicating with others, so there is a lot more views on a recent game concerning your club. Vital Pompey also has a large following compared to most Vital sites too.

5 - How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
Newsnow.co.uk.

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.
It was probably some Division 1 game in the mid 90s. A 3-0 drubbing in the hands of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park I should think. Didn't go to another game until a 2-0 Premiership defeat at St. Andrews in 2003.

7 - How often do you get to watch Pompey?
Well last season I went to 12 games. This season I've only been to 2, and thanks to my job I'll rarely get the chance to go to Fratton Park. Still, there's a lot more Pompey games on TV now.

8 - Who is your favourite Pompey Player - current and/or former?
Got to be Pedro Mendes. But to be honest this is the first season where I've seen more than 4 players that definitely need to start games.

9 - What is you favourite Pompey moment?
Matt Taylor's 45 yarder against Everton of course. I thought it was going to hit the roof of the net because of the lack of reaction from the goalkeeper.

10 - What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
Well, UEFA Cup football by the end of the year, with a top 6 finish to boot. In 5 years I hope we can lay claim to some major silverware. The ultimate objective is to win the League of course.

Hi L. Nice to meet you. I know Cambridge, my brother lived & worked there & has since moved to Norwich. Awful trek to see him. Anyway, the 80's & 90's were always getting stuffed & Selhurst Park & probably everywhere else, until now!!!!!

Hi Lysimachus, good to meet you! I've only ever been to Selhurst Park twice. But somehow managed to see us beat Palace both times. Can't remember the details as both matches seem to blur into one. But I think we were losing both and maged to come back with Steve Claridge / Jason Crowe inspired revivals. (I'm sure EastneyDave will be able to correct me!!)

When I leave Cambridgeshire, it'll be 2010. It'll be a uni I'll be heading for and I'm not sure where I'm going. The option of going to Portsmouth just reeks of biaism though, heh.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.

On this day in history...7th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 7th February.
