A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal – an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces a battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora.

No it’s not mine, but this site has now been online, in its current form, for three years!

2015 2016 2017 2018

A new title!

I stopped using “Only The Blue Side” and went with “The Blue Front”. To be honest not really happy with that either.

Pictures went from the Home page to replaced by icons

Also on that very first day I announced the arrival of Kyle Bennett and Kal Naismith to Portsmouth and a year later (2016) I had indicated that Kal Naismith had been a disappointment. A year makes a lot of difference and Naismith went on to be one of our best players during the League 2 Championship season. Three years on and now neither are at Portsmouth. Bennett left early in the season and Naismith decided to leave at the end.

The Blog also had the same name change and as can be seen at least a third change on the “On This Day” layout, one day I will finish that
