The first home league game of a new season is usually accompanied by a wave of optimism about what lies ahead.
A packed house at Fratton Park will eagerly anticipate Pompey’s League One clash with newly-promoted Tranmere.
And if you are coming to the game, make sure to pick up a copy of our freshly-designed matchday magazine.
Ellis Harrison graces the front cover, while we take a detailed look at all of the Blues’ summer signings.
One of them, Marcus Harness, reveals his bests and worsts, while there are exclusive columns from chief executive Mark Catlin, manager Kenny Jackett, skipper Brett Pitman and broadcaster Ian Darke.
There are a host of new features – as well as plenty of old favourites – in a packed 84 pages, with the price remaining at £3.
You can pick up your copy from programme sellers in and around the ground on Saturday.
