At the 2011 Pompey Supporters Trust AGM we were honoured to have Dr John Beech deliver a lecture. The slides from the presentation can be found in the Download section on the Website in the AGM Folder. It is a Powerpoint presentation.
I will attempt to describe each slide in brief to give an idea of what Dr Beech said about each one.
