    Follow, follow, follow, there was only two minutes to go; it was Wayne Bridge's goal, that sent us out of control, and sent the Arsenal out the Euro

    Back in the early eighties I worked with a mate of mine who was a massive Pompey fan and to their credit they always travelled in good numbers and he travelled every where with them ,home and away One day my mate was hit by a car as he cycled along the road, the car never stopped and he was found a good while after with head injuries. He was taken to Royal Surrey Hospital in Guildford where he slowly recovered .Not long after been in and still poorly and disorientated he left the ward in his white gown, walked out of the hospital and stood at the nearest bus stop. The hospital went into panic mode but soon found him and returned him to his bed . His explanation “Well Pompey are at home ,I need to go because I haven’t missed a game in 6 years” Bless him he made a good recovery bar losing his sense of taste – I will always remember the day orange kit kat’s came out and he was first in the queue to try one …. “Oi you cant taste them “ , “ I know “he says “ but I have never had one” Happy days Ps re game been to etc etc - special mention to Ron Hockings RIP

    I love the fact that some of us oldies probably can't remember what they did last Tuesday but can remember where they brought and how much they paid for a Pringle back in 1983. it is also the little things that come back in our minds ,probably because they have never gone away ,like Bluehaze and the Wigan result,I remember being at that newcastle game but I have no memories of losing to wigan next game but to Bluehaze I suspect it is like it happened yeterday. The result after the result for some strange reason I always remember is a game we played after the very infamous Palace cup game back in 75-76 ,2 nil down 2-2 to then lose 3-2 ,Kung fu kicks and 50,000 fans ,Jimmy hill on match of the day ,we all know the game .On the Monday at school my friends all asked were you there and I was like no ,missed it ,couldn't go etc but I am going this Wednesday ,hull city at home and they were like wow ! So some 4 days later after the Palace game off I head to London thinking this is going to be brilliant ,can't wait to see another King fu kick etc and to tell my school mates. The game was a 0 0 draw,absolute rubbish watched by 10,000 fans ,I still wonder to this day where the other 40,000 fans went to ?

    HI RIchard P I have never seen that footage ,so many thanks ! Went to the game ,never got in the away end but was down the side near the home end.My real memory was getting back to Guildford and facing an 8 mile walk home as there were no buses running so I set off to hitch hike it,thinking i am bound to get a lift! Many many freezing hours later I walked through the door a real grumpy sod ....the things we did for our club !

    RIP Ray Wilkins

    What a sad sad day I was at white hart lane when he first captained the team in the relegation battle against that lot,I was at the 2 2 game v Plymouth when he scored one of the best goals I have seen and I was gutted when we had to sell him .I think non CFC fans don't realise as a 18 year old how good he really was because he was that good.... RIP Ray and I'm thinking of you and your family at this very sad time

    Met him a few times ,the first as a 10 /11 year old .I was lost for words standing in front of the real life Ossie ,I can’t remember what I said and what he said. I do know though that he was a star in my eyes then and is still one now RIP
  12. On the subject of presents in hindsight the strangest one i got was a Chelsea tie ,it is a cracking tie but I have never been sure, as a 12 year old what I was supposed to wear it with and indeed wear it to !!
