Subotic On Why Competition For Places Is Good!

Subotic On Why Competition For Places Is Good!

Portsmouth may have a wealth of options up front but striker Danijel Subotic explains why competition can only be a good thing.

We're getting to know our new boy Peter Crouch. He is a funny guy. He is such a good player. I think I will learn a lot from him. He's really tall but he has amazing technique and a great touch.

Having the competition is a good thing; it is what makes you better. If I was older, say 25 or 26, I would be worried but I have time. I know I am going to be a player for the future. Training and playing with people like Crouch, Kanu, and Jermain Defoe is great for me - I will improve every day.

They are all such different types of striker. If I can take something from each of them, it can only be good for my game. As I said in my last diary, Kanu is one of the best strikers ever - as long as he is here I can improve and learn a lot.

If he can't learn good things from some of these guys, he never will.

Yes and he will get a chance to play around with the things he picked up from each striker and see what works for him in a competitive environment. Should be good for him.

We have a great formula for success = 1x buy player / player straight on loan = sold at end of season for a loss... hmmm now why cant we pay our VAT bill

He seems very keen to impress, so lets hope he has the talent to go with it.
