I have been running a poll for a long time about who is to blame for the situation Portsmouth find themselves in.
It has been intriguing to see how the poll results have changed depending on what has been happening that week. For example I started it the week before the Villa Game, we had just played Chelsea and hadn't scored so as you can imagine the attack got a lot of votes.
We then lost to Villa due to a defending howler; once again this had a huge impact on the poll as defending went from 7% to 16%. During that week there was a lot of negative press towards Harry Redknapp, which was also reflected in the poll as Harry was the most to blame with 45%.
Then came the incredible game against Man City! The Midfield was only blamed by 1% of you and Zajec's votes went through the roof.
The standings now:
12% of you blame the defence which is fair enough as Portsmouth have conceded 49 goals which is only slightly better than Sunderland.
1% of you blame the midfield. I can understand that one percent as we have the second worst cross ratio however we are third in the league for tackles which suggests we win the ball a lot in the middle of the park.
10% blame the attack. This is defiantly understandable as our record signing is yet to hit the target let alone score. (He will come good though!) Our midfield have scored more goals than our strikers. Our left back (Matt Taylor) has had more shots than any Portsmouth striker. We have nine strikers and between them they all average 0.88 per season. (9 strikers, 8 goals between them.)
26% of you blame Harry Redkanpp. This vote isn't exclusive to Portsmouth fans and I expect that a few Southampton fans voted blaming Harry. The main reason I think that 26% of you thought that Harry was to blame is that he walked out. Maybe if he had stayed we would be pushing for Europe now.
However the clear winner is Zajec. He has collected 52% of all votes. I think that the main reason his score is so high is that if he hadn't have joined our club then Harry would not have left and we wouldn't have been sc**pping for survival last season.
