Johnson the main man v United

Johnson the main man v United

Glen Johnson was the star performer for Pompey against United, not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I do agree with, if one had to be singled out…

It was hard to single anyone out from that fantastic win at Old Trafford as pretty much everyone was outstanding, players, management and fans - everyone… but Johnson put in a hell of a shift, even more so when you consider that John Utaka offered him little help on the right, defensively or offensively!

The one player that I was most pleased for would have been Sol Campbell who was immense compared to how he had been in recent weeks, maybe even months. His positional sense was as good as ever, and unlike many a time recently this was not the decisive factor in bailing him, or us out.

What the poll asked - Man of the match against United?

How you voted - Glen Johnson 48%, Lassana Diarra 17%, Sol Campbell 11%, David James 7%, Niko Kranjcar (81) 7 %, Sylvain Distin 5%, Sub - Milan Baros (54) 4%, Sulley Muntari 1%, Hermann Hreidarsson 0%, Papa Bouba Diop 0%, John Utaka (74) 0%, Kanu (54) 0%, Sub - Lauren (74) 0%, Sub - Richard Hughes (81) 0%

Current Poll - Benjani has gone, this has to be accepted, some have more than others but the simple truth it he is gone. He appears wasted at Citeh, so many are even hoping he 'might' return…

Benjani looks such a different player at Citeh, he is not being used in the right way at all, which is making him look a bad player, but can he ever return to Pompey - this is what pompeysno.9 wants to know with this - 'Will Benjani play for us again one day?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Fantastic performance from nearly all, although Sol's performance was neigh on world class, you could tell from his rection at the whistle what it meant to him, it was like he'd won the champions league!

Would'nt it be lovely to shut the scum up, and stop their carping of 76, they'd even be tearing down their tatty copies of the celebratory pink echo down from their grubby bedroom walls!......

The scum must be going through hell. it would be great to win the cup and shut them up for a few years wouldnt it. Glen was one of about 14 stars on Saturday, now they need to do it against Birmingham tomorrow night, 3 more points woud be fantastic, lets hope their minds are back on the job in hand.

I voted Jonno, think he has been magnificent this year, I am pleased to say because I was gutted when we re-signed him, due to his performances at the end of last year. Against Utd, he was fantastic.....wonder why we dont have a chant for him?

Kept us in the tie with his goal line clearance but it probably wasn't as significant as Distin's clearance.

Give him back!!! :P Great performance from him - although I'll never understand why Chelsea let him go, it's good to see him playing and playing well.

I didn't vote in the poll because I don't want to single out one player as the best or worse. They all did well as a team even though some of you have a down on Utaka. If the whole team hadn't played well then we would have lost. You don't win against Man U with only 10 men playing well.

And what will you say if he comes on against Brum and scores, plays well and we lose. Oh but he had a bad game on Saturday that was why we lost today. Give the guy a break.
