Knowing me knowing you - plymouth graham
1 - Vital Pompey username?
plymouth graham.

2 - Where do you come from/where do you currently live?
From Overton, a village 8 miles west of Basingstoke, I now live in Jannermouth.

3 - How long have you been a Vital Pompey member?
A few months now, close season.

4 - What do you think of Vital Pompey? Be brutally honest!
4 I love it, it's a great way to meet new mates who follow your team (Rug and Brother) and especially when you live away from the Hampshire homeland. I don't visit as much as when a transfer window is imminent but that's because my teenagers are often on the computer and I go on late so more impetus when transfers are being discussed etc.

5 - How did you find out about Vital Pompey?
Surfing net.

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.
My first game was apparently Derby County when Mr Clough won the 2nd division title. But I've no real memories. The first game I can really recall was Sheff weds circa 1970-71 we won 1-0 then my next game was Fulham at home winning 6-3. first away game Birmingham City in FA cup lost 3-1 I think Riche Reynolds scored for us, possibly 1972.

7 - How often do you get to watch Pompey?
not enough, between 4-8 times a season...

8 - Who is your favourite Pompey Player - current and/or former?
hmmm...I loved watching Terry Brisley and Alan Rogers. Before that Norman Piper, Nicky Jennings. Later Vince Hilaire and Noel Blake. Lately I've enjoyed so many players. De Zeeuw, Yak on a good day. Kranjcar and Taylor, so many.... Overall....I'll go for Terry Brisley.

9 - What is you favourite Pompey moment?
When I was present - promotion from the fourth division 1980 at Northampton, Players coming out at Liverpool to a 10/15 thousand travelling Pompey fans tickertape reception. Beating the scum at the dell in the old 1st division. Winning the league and Promotion to Prem.

10 - What are your realistic hopes for Pompey in the future?
win FA cup, league cup and uefa cup...and stuffing the lot and winning the Prem...really this year we will be champions. Redknapp knighted and new ground.

Hi PG. I remember Terry Brisley, great little palyer & Alan Rogers up the wing. Great days in the lower leagues, saw a lot of those games as I began my early years following Pompey.

top man, with top hair too :-) i will never forget the 1st day i met graham - it was at the yeovil pre season game in the summer. i had sent me a private message to see whereabouts in plymouth he lived - as i have lived just outside plymouth for about 20 years now - and he told me, we exchanged mobiles and agreed to meet up to say hello at that game... anyway things didnt quite work as planned and i didnt expect to meet up then suddenly this this jarred up fella comes strolling into the ground near kick off time and sue - my borthers girlfriend says 'do you reckon that's him?'... to which i said nope, i dont reckon... next thing i get a call saying 'ive just arrived, where are ya, i'll meet you behind the goal'. it certainly was graham we arranged that day to meet up and go to the reading and everton games this season to start with and we have - top man, top, top man, easy to get on with you can talk about anything with him and you are always assured of plenty of laughs.

No More Quarter Final Replays For Pompey

Should Portsmouth progress through to an FA Cup quarter final from the 2016/17 season onwards, the game will no longer be subject to a replay.

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.
