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

15/3/1969: Gianluca Festa

From the Ed



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

Remember Festa well from his brief spell with Pompey. He made himself a popular figure at Fratton Park didn’t he.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 18
Won – 11
Drawn – 3
Lost – 4

A great day as 11 of the 18 previously played have been won with only 4 lost. The other 3 have been drawn.


Can recall the most recent – and others – but wasn’t at it. However, I did go to Anfield for the 4-1 defeat against Liverpool in 2010. I also took in the 2-0 win against Aston Villa in 2008 at Fratton Park.

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

  • There for the 4 wins in 94, 95, 03 & 08. a very good day. Vivid memories of the 03 game as we beat a good Wolves 1-0, they went up as play off winners. 08 and a great prem game against a good Villa side.

  • 08,03&75…Missed a couple,but 08 I remember the OG the most as their goalie raced out of his area because I think it was Defoe who chased a long ball with a defender & he smashed it as hard as he could onto the defender & it absolutely flew into the net.I am annoyed as I can’t remember who the defender was.It went in at the Milton End…03 was part of the promotion season & 1 of the very best in my 46 yrs of following…as for 75, mind is blank…but did see Festa of course,more 03 memories
