Who is the greatest player ever... You decide!

Who is the greatest Pompey player ever to play in the Premiership? What is the best Pompey XI ever to play in the Premiership?

It's a topic that has divided opinion for Portsmouth fans everywhere and now there is a new website dedicated to finding out exactly who is the greatest Pompey player and XI to ever have ever graced the English Premiership.

www.greatestpompeyplayer.com has a unique 'Play-Off' system where two randomly selected players go head-to-head in a battle vote where you can decide which player you think is the best. Based on the statistics collected, it generates a table of the top 50 players and is presented along with the Greatest Portsmouth XI ever. The beauty of this site is the more votes the players receive, the more accurate the results, so get voting! There are another 30 individual team sites and one huge site called www.greatestplayerever.com which lets the fans decide who the best player and XI of all the players and teams to have ever played in the Prem since it exploded onto the scene back in 1992.

"Anybody who is a Pompey fan will not be able to resist the pure addictiveness of these sites," said James Terry, Co-Founder of the Greatest Player Ever Network. "The ability of this game to capture your imagination and draw you in is unbelievable. Seeing some of your past heroes pitted against some of the modern greats is fantastic and remembering some of the not so great players is brilliant entertainment, its pure football gold!"

The site will soon be launching a membership feature with the opportunity to win fantastic prizes from signed shirts to VIP football tickets.

At the time of writing this article the current all time Pompey Premiership XI is Ashdown, Johnson, Primus, Karadas, Hreidarsson, O'Neil, Bouba Diop, Davis, Taylor, Mwaruwari, Cole

The stats also need updating - I don't remember Zivkovic scoring 18 in 18 appearances!!

Ashdown ... Cole and Karadas in our greatest ever team.. yeah right ... Maybe I'll have a look later but come on .. there has to be a starting point that team surely is not it .... I wonder if this will be as good as talentspotter.com ... Well marketed but little substance unless it lures us all to it's advertising.. Still I haven't looked yet !

Couldn't resist so had a look ... My first chice was Kanu v Snerick !!! and Striker v a Forward .. strange ... BUT looking at the team it now looks a little better .. Ashdown, Cole and Karadas have gone .. but we now have Sean Davis and Papa as a greatest midfielders ... .. Despite what I said earlier .. It is worth a look .. but watch out for the flashy advertising..

cant argue with hussler for the first choice XI apart maybe from Yakubu for Sheringham... with Hislop, Primus, Berger, Benjani and Kanu on the bench

Is the the greatest talent (regardless of how long he played for us) or someone whose investment in Pompey was considerable in terms of years of service even if not an international or a superstar? Or is that where the heart of the debate lies?

Diarra, for me. Scarry some of the great palyers we have had. Just a shame we don't have a few of them now.
