From the Ed



With it a birthday free day we head straight onto the games previously played.

Played – 20
Won – 12
Drawn – 3
Lost – 5

What a great day, plenty of wins from a decent amount of games.

I didn’t make the most recent two away from Fratton Park but did go to the home win over Wigan at Fratton in 2008 – does seem a lifetime ago now though when we had the likes of Jermain Defoe playing, who was on the score sheet that day, playing for us.

What are your memories any of the games previously played today?
