Pompey man of the match against Fulham

Pompey man of the match against Fulham

'Freddy P was the man of the match against Fulham', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I do and do not agree with to be honest...

Yep, without a doubt Freddy P had a good game, he was here there and everywhere - full of running but he had no one helping him, and this is something he will need.

So, I can see why we voted that way but to be honest in my thinking, and I never thought I would hear myself say this, I thought Hayden Mullins had a fantastic game - without a shadow of a doubt his best in a Pompey shirt so feel he was unlucky to just, and I mean literally just, miss out...

It seems as though John Utaka has been on voting himself again though, 7%! Please!

None of us agreed with the actual official 'Air Malta' man of the match award winner Marc Wilson though.

To be fair to Wilson he did have a good game, he looked solid and dealt with just about everything thrown at him but one mistake late in the 2nd half seemed to rattle him for a while, but he certainly did not look out of place and stuck very much to the 'when in doubt boot it out' thoughts you are always given as a kid.

I tipped him as a player to watch last summer, and after a decent debut season and some heavy working out this summer - all those metal poles he carries around with him to beat Dave Nugent with must help! - he is looking a stronger player who looks like being a serious player for us this season...

Congratulations to Freddy P on winning the first Vital Pompey man of the match of the season and of course Marc Wilson for winning the first official one.

    Mullins either had a once in a lifetime blinder or everyone else played crap.

    Some strange voting on this one. I thought Mullins was head and shoulders above everone else. And Utaka stood out for different reasons

    One Sunday paper had Mullins down as 5/10. Even I had to admit Mullins had an excellent game, more like a 7/10 but, for me, Freddie got my vote.

    While I agree with this-'one mistake late in the 2nd half seemed to rattle him for a while' in regards to Wilson. I thought Hart reacted well by swapping him and Kaboul over. Well done Paul! However MOM for me was Mullins. He had by far his best game in a pompey shirt (so far- hopefully) - i just wish he had put his foot through the ball instead of passing inside when he had two really good shooting opportunities in the 1st half. However perhaps with Mokoena and Diop for back up, this season we may see him influencing a games more (if this is a good or bad thing? I can't decide.)

    As I posted somewhere else on VP I NEVER EVER THOUGHT I WOULD SAY THIS but I voted MULLINS; I suspect theWilson verdict was a bit of PR all important at the moment

    Topping last seasons tally the aim

    78pts was only enough for a play-off place last season so you suspect we'll have to better that for a top 3 finish this coming season, which begins with Carlisle at Fratton.

    On this day in history...26th June

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 26th June.

    Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

    The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

    Cushioning the blow

    Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.
