Diarra 'the new darling of Fratton'

Diarra 'the new darling of Fratton'

Lassana Diarra has taken Benjani's mantle of being 'the darling of Fratton Park!' Not my vote, yours - although these findings from Chix's poll are thoughts that I do agree with.

Since his signing Diarra has become a huge favourite with the Fratton faithful with literally everyone have plenty of positive words for the fella and everyone being impressed beyond belief at his ability.

Should Jermain Defoe find the net regularly - as I suspect he will - then he is going to rank right up their with Diarra, who might not be here for long anyway?

What the poll asked - With Benjani now gone, who will become the new darling of Fratton Park...

How you voted - Diarra 33%, Defoe 26%, Kranjcar 12%, The girl in row EE 12%, Eastneydave 7%, Muntari 4%, Baros 1%, Johnson 1%, Diop 1%, Nugent 1%, Kanu 1%, The bloke on the tannoy 1%, The Pompey Sailor 0%, Pompey4me 0%

Current Poll - It is almost FA cup time again!

Preston stand between us and a Quarter Final place in the FA cup, can we overcome them or will the cup dream die - this is what pompeyrug wants to know with this - 'FA cup - Preston v Pompey?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Apologies of course to anybody with a wooden leg or a glass eye or buck teeth or bottle bottom glasses, or fashion straight out of the seventies...

Diarra is a quality player, no doubt, but I would hesitate to embrace him as a crowd favourite. He looks at Pompey as a stepping stone, and actually said as soon as he joined. As an Arsenal fan, I was obviously annoyed by his attitude (not coz he chose to leave, but the comments he made and his attitude in general).

Chix, I thinkthe girl in row EE was doomed after rug admitted it wasn't him in drag. Had he said it was him I think he/she would have romped in.

abit harsh on johnny westwood there... i think that diarra would sell himself 100% to the pompey faithful if he stayed with us next season - if he did this then i think his place in pompey's history will be cemented wont it?

To go in a "bigger" club and to prove Arsenal and Chelsea were wrong to left him go without gave him really the opportunity to play, he will (like Rug said) gime himself 100%, for sure, he've always done that with the French National team, and it is the better way for him to become a Big player. (A lot of chelsea fans regret him, now that Makelele risk to retire soon....)

Whereever he leaves you for in the summer, you'll at least make a tidy profit

League Two 2016/17 Golden Boot Battle (27/3/17)

With most playing 39 League Two games in the 2016/17 season, this year could still see a few players break the 20 goal mark.

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th March.

Vital View - League 2, 25th-26th March 2017

With Doncaster and Plymouth yet to play Portsmouth took advantage to close the gap and extend it on the chasing pack. Newport & Leyton Orient look likely to be relegated.

Video - Pompey 2-1 Newport

With Stevenage drawing and Blackpool the only potential challenger winning we've got a six point cushion on Boro that's effectively seven given our superior goal difference.
