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

21/5/1975: Laurent Robert

From the Ed

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

Robert had a very poor spell at Fratton Park, so he’s not one I remember with much fondness.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 2
Won – 0
Drawn – 1
Lost – 1

Not a day Pompey have ever managed a win, albeit with only a couple of games played.

With the last of these played back in 1983 it isn’t a surprise I cannot claim a game myself.

What are your memories of Robert 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?
