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.

26/11/1954 John Ruggiero
26/11/1957: Peter Denyer
26/11/1969: David Lee
26/11/1980: Aruna Dindane

From the Ed



Happy birthday to John Ruggiero, Peter Denyer, David Lee and Aruna Dindane – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Happy birthday to four from the Pompey past today, some I’m familiar with and/or recall others I’m not.

Ruggiero and Denyer were both before my time but names I’ve heard mentioned before. I also know of Lee from other clubs but didn’t see him for Pompey.

Meanwhile, Dindane had his moment with the Blues but all in all, in fairness during a difficult period with the club in many ways, he didn’t really deliver did he? At least I saw a hat-trick he once scored against Wigan.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 21
Won – 2
Drawn – 8
Lost – 11

I remember a number of the games played previously, however, can only claim the one game. Cannot recall the game but was at the draw with Leicester at Fratton in 2011.

What are your memories of Ruggiero, Denyer, Lee and/or Dindane 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?

  • 16,13,11,10,05,85,83&77….Loads of games for me, 16 disappointing loss, but we still went up..13 was awful, we were 1-0 against 10 men!! & lost 2-1…10 I went to tick off Swansea’s ground,great win,it was freezing that night & it snowed all the way up there,was worried we wouldn’t get back…85 was scary with too many people trying to get in because they didn’t make it all ticket, worried about being crushed by the Milton End…83 was a topsy- turvy game & a good win in the Cup in 77…saw all the birthdays & 3 of them score…Dindane played in the 10 Cup final, Ruggeiro was on loan,Denyer played in the 4th DIV & Lee was on loan as well

  • Time starting to blur!!! 85 & the cup replay with Spurs. 94 & 16. The blur is 11 & 13, lol, far too recent to remember!!!
