Pompey stars feature in new book

Lomana Lualua reveals Alain Perrin banned him from eating Mayonnaise, Mick Kennedy talks of how he once found an opponent’s teeth in his elbow and Robert Prosinecki reflects on the only hat-trick of his career.

Their stories and the tales of many, many more Pompey favourites can be found in ‘Played Up Pompey’.

And the book is now available to order from Amazon.

Priced £16.99 and penned by The News’ chief sports writer, Neil Allen, ‘Played Up Pompey’ features new in-depth interviews with 24 Blues heroes from across the decades.

It includes Lindy Delapenha, the last surviving member of the 1948-49 First Division title-winning side, and Ron Saunders, the club’s third-highest scorer of all time.

Inevitably 801-game Alan Knight is also featured as are former team-mates Alan Biley, Alan Rogers, Mark Hateley, Noel Blake, Guy Whittingham, Andy Awford and Alan McLoughlin.

There are also 2008 FA Cup winners Sylvain Distin and Hermann Hreidarsson, plus members of the 2002-03 promotion side in Arjan De Zeeuw, Matt Taylor and Paul Merson.

And last, but definitely not least, FA Cup 2010 semi-final star Ricardo Rocha.
