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.

24/2/1903: John Mackie
24/2/1999: Daniel Alfei

From the Ed



Happy birthday to John Mackie and Daniel Alfei – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Obviously Mackie was well before my time – and anyone reading – but do remember Alfei from his loan spell from Swansea a few years back. Had his moments but wasn’t overly struck on him to be honest.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 15
Won – 8
Drawn – 2
Lost – 5

I do remember a good number of the games but can only claim one; I was at Fratton Park for the win over Sunderland in 2008.

What are your memories of Mackie – too soon for anyone – and/or Alfei from their Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories from them too?

  • There in 1980, a big win in a a big promotion game & a big crowd for a 4th division game. As unheard of then as it was in recent years.
    Another big win in 1985 and another in 1991. a fourth win in 2008 during that fabulous season.

  • 16,08,91,85,80&74….16 to tick off Barnet?s ground,freezing cold & we were awful..home wins in 08&91..85 were i think Alan Biley?s last Pompey goals,80 a big win in a promotion battle,we went up of course 3 months later & finally 74 my first ever away game.My Dad took me,first of many defeats on the road…Alfei of the bdays
