Play up Pompey! Relive the history of Portsmouth football club through newspaper headlines of the time in this personalised Portsmouth book. With coverage beginning in 1920, the year they joined the Football League, this magnificent piece of Portsmouth memorabilia guides you through over a century of key moments from Fratton Park and beyond, right up until the present day.

Portsmouth’s first piece of silverware came in 1939, as they captured the last F.A. Cup contested before World War II with a 4-1 win over Wolves. Their greatest ever success would come just after the war and under Bob Jackson, winning back to back league titles in 1949 and 1950, to this day a feat managed by only four other post-war teams. It would be a long wait until Pompey’s next major trophy, 58 years in fact, with the drought eventually ended in 2008 as Harry Redknapp’s flamboyant side captured the F.A. Cup against Cardiff City. Redknapp would also guide the team to their first top-half finish in the top flight since 1955, and then repeat the feat the following year.

Take a look at the Portsmouth contents list 2018 to see which historic moments are captured.

I chose the leather bound copy which was almost £64.00.The quality of the paper is poor as is the quality of the photocopying.Had I seen this in a shop I would have carried on shopping as it really isn't worth the money.

Mixed feelings

I bought two books. One of the books was amazing. My daughters name was in the story on every page. It was great. The other book had my daughters name at the top of the page and not in the story. I was very disappointed.
