Portsmouth was formed in 1898, following a meeting that proposed that land close to Goldsmith Avenue should be used for a football club. Football was becoming increasingly popular at the time and a local Royal Artillery team had begun to stir a lot of support. The Artillery team was forced to disband following a breach of rules in amateur competition, but many of these players went on to form the nucleus of the new Portsmouth side. Pompey won two First Division titles, before aging players and bad management forced the club into the lower leagues. Portsmouth climbed back into the Second Division in the 1980s, owing much to the strong support of the Pompey fans - also known as the Fratton Army. Their 'Pompey Chimes' chant is a reference to the old Royal Artillery team and a great crowd atmosphere has become a famous trait of the club.
Our Personalised Calendars include twelve Portsmouth match reports from our newspaper archives, featuring some of the best games from the past hundred years. Starting from the month of your choice, these A3 Calendars are a perfect gift for any Pompey fan!
The Personalised Calendars contain a thrilling selection of cup ties and league games, beginning with the FA Cup final of 1938. This was the second time that Pompey had reached the final in this decade, as they had previously lost to Manchester City following an injury to one of the club's best central defenders. On this occasion, Portsmouth faced a highly rated Wolves team who were made overwhelming favourites. However, Pompey produced a fantastic performance, defying the odds and winning 4-1. The club also won the FA Cup in 2008, beating Cardiff City 1-0 in the final. This win guaranteed Portsmouth a place in their first European competition.
The A3 Calendar also includes the third game of a marathon FA Cup tie against Hull City in 1967, in addition to the fifth round victory against Middlesbrough from 1992. In 2003, Portsmouth faced a challenging fifth round tie against Liverpool. A 1-1 draw at Anfield forced the replay and a tense game followed back at Fratton Park. The match moved into extra-time after a 0-0 draw and Pompey continued their incredible performance in defence. In the final few minutes, Portsmouth scored an unlikely winner that sent their fans into a frenzy. Unfortunately, the club was drawn against Arsenal in the quarter-finals and this would be one Premiership giant too far for the Pompey team.
In addition to these fascinating cup ties, the Calendar Gift also features a fabulous variety of league fixtures. These games include promotion to the First Division in 1987, the 6-2 mauling of Derby County in 2003, the 2-0 victory against Manchester United in 2004, and the 4-1 thrashing of Harry Redknapp's Southampton team in 2005.
Each Portsmouth Football Calendar contains the following reproduced newspaper reports:
