Another feature, again courtesy of PompeyRama, sees us look at those Pompey personalities – past or present – who have a birthday on this day.

11/5/1971: Bernard Lambourde

From the Ed

Happy birthday to Bernard Lambourde – the Pompey player from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Lambourde is a player I recall well, but this recollection is mainly from his time at Chelsea and not his loan at Fratton Park.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 5
Won – 1
Drawn – 0
Lost – 4

Again, a limited amount of games, but having lost four out of the five played we can say it’s been a poor day.

Most, well in fact pretty much all were before my time of regular attendance, but I can claim the defeat in the visit of Fulham to Fratton Park from 2008, which saw the Cottagers stay in the Premier League when beating the Blues.

What are your memories of Lambourde from his Pompey days? Also, have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories of them too?
