    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
  10. 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 !!

    I love every picture of Ossie as much now as I did as a nipper !
  12. Sorry Boyne I just noticed you actually mentioned Hollins ,I was being a bit thick there !
  13. John Hollins must have played late 60,s 70,s and early 80,s ..... That's me done

    Hi Ewell ,I don't know his name but wasn't he the 50 / 50 lottery ticket seller who you saw at the bottom of the steps having just entered the shed via the white wall entrance ? Or is time playing tricks with me !

    Kerry Dixon.

    Cheers RIchard P for the Man U away footage ,that was my first time at Old Trafford ,I think I have done over 60 different away grounds with CFC but to be honest that night at Old Trafford was the only real time I have ever come up the steps and into a ground for the first time and gone wow impressive ! Old Trafford mid week under lights ,packed Stratford end etc was something special to be fair. The fact we had 1000's up there was just typical of our superb support and to nick it with a last minute winner made it all the more special. The old shudder watching that footage was seeing Darren Wood running around like a headless chicken ,heh Ho he did his bit I guess ?!?!

    Kerry Dixon.

    Cheers Harrow's finest for the update – good read and glad you had a goodnight King Kerry is spot on , for the goal at Highbury alone I remember being at the Bridge for a Alex Stewart's testimonial or some sort of charity cricket game. The only parts of the ground open were the west stand lower and the east lower so we are all sitting there in the west lower ,one Sunday chatting about this that and nothing at all watching the cricket at the Bridge ( I missed the one in the 80’s when Botham played) when all of a sudden I spot Kerry in his full whites and cricket pads come up the tunnel and sit in the home dug out. I have no idea what came over me but all of a sudden I got up and went off without a word to my mates and proceeded to walk left across the west stand ,past the odd lazing steward in the MHL ,down the front of the east stand and I plonked by arse down in the dugout next to a rather surprised Kerry Dixon . Bless him he was a good as gold ,we had a chat, he signed my programme and I said cheers ,wished him all the best ,got up and made my way back to my mates The bloke is a Legend

    As a kid me and my brother played with that Wembley trophy ball and would reguarly puncture it on the rose thorns in the garden. We learnt that with a burning match you could heat the plastic up and cover the puncture hole ,let the plastic cool down and game on !! Happy days and happy memories

    ah 1963 the year i was born, a little while ago i thought "wouldn't it be fun to collect every CFC programme for 1963" so i set off on an e-bay mission. Most of the home ones are about at between £2 or £3 quid and were easy to pick up ,some of the away's were £8-£10 but i had started so ploughed on. Luckily instead of Xmas socks i got Sunderland away ,instead of slippers Ipswich away and so on. A year or so later i had all homes ,all pre season friendlies and all away's bar one Blackburn away.I couldn't find it anywhere and the search became quite desperate (well sad i guess but heh ) ,i even joined on line football programme web sites and chatted on programme forums (slightly duller of course than the shed end and one up from train spotting !!) .One day i was told by a old boy in almost magical tones "ah Blackburn Rovers away, bit of a rare one that ,it some times comes up on line but at £150 plus ",well i thought bollxs basically ! Eventually after a good year it appeared on line, £160 ,bargain i am having it ,click click thank you ,collection complete ,happy days .The illusive programme turned up ,5 or 6 pages of not a lot of content (like all old programmes) but heh ,wrap it up with the others and stick it in the loft ! - job done ,search over ,sad and lonely bloke now happy ! 1963 was a cold and miserable year for many but for me a magical year for one reason or another ,oh and we got promoted

    Quality pictures CB ,credit to Pompey as they did turn up in good numbers although getting on the Portsmouth to Waterloo train at Guildford was always interesting . Mind you when they were greeted at Waterloo by Millwall then the entertainment was even more fun

    RIP little fella so sad,while I am an old git my boys are only young and we all sent a Christmas card to him last year,it is funny how someone I have never met made me smile every time I saw his grin and yet make me feel so sad at the same time . Respect to Defoe and also the fans of all the clubs up and down the country who sang his name and no doubt will again in the future sad day
