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.

1/5/1975: Alexei Smertin
1/5/1984: Therry Racon

From the Ed

Happy birthday to Alexei Smertin and Therry Racon – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

I remember both Smertin and Racon pretty well. Both had moments during their spells at Fratton Park to make them players, all things considered, worth recalling in midfield, didn’t they?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 12
Won – 5
Drawn – 1
Lost – 6

There hasn’t been a lot in it today, but defeats slightly outweigh victories on a day when Pompey generally win or lose.

I can recall a large number of games, claiming the most recent victory over Wolves at Fratton Park in 2010. The other I was at today came at Gresty Road, a defeat in the trip to Crewe in 1999.

What are your memories of Smertin and/or Racon from their Pompey days? Also, have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories of them too?

  • 10,04&82…10 was our last ever home game in the PL & also our last win,04 an end of season draw with Fulham & I’ve got another win in 82.Didn’t make the famous one in 93 which stopped us going up….loved Smertin for that season he was here & Racon didn’t produce much so he didn’t last long
