82% Want Dejan Out

82% Want Dejan Out

82% of readers want Dejan Stefanovic out of the side. Such a high number, may seem slightly harsh considering how loyal he has been to the club.

55% of voters said that Dejan should be (and will be) dropped from the team, with Matty Taylor coming in at left back. This would allow Kranjcar to play left midfield and Pompey would have two attacking wing backs, in Glen and Matt.

27% thought that he should remain in the team, continuing the role of left back. Some people have been impressed with him at left back and believe that we look better defensively.

18% think that Dejan should be left out of the team but don`t believe that Harry has the guts to drop him. Harry wasn`t the one that made him captain but hasn`t changed the captaincy on his return.

YOUR VIEWS

yep agree, he cant be an automatic start now, at spurs they pretty much concentrated on him and it showed russellm

as much as i like Matty i don't think he's a good defender. He trys his hardest but when he's at left back the opposition concentrates there even harder. I think he's a good winger but not a good defender. Linvoy#1

really like Taylor, and would have no problems with him playing at left back, although personally I think Dejan has shown his best form for sometime this season playing at left back, has defended well and also got forward well. I don't think Niko did him many favours on sunday to be honest, he left him exposed a lot and one person can only do so much. With Taylor in front of Dejan we've looked better. Even if Taylor plays at left back, although he is far more mobile than Dejan I think we'll be left with the same scenario with Taylor being expossed... pompeyrug

Pompeyrug, i dont agree. Kruchie was the most dangerous mitfielder in our team. Taylor is a big figter, but he lacks tehnique to play up front so he has to play in back four or be on the bench... Niko is our future alongside Fernandes. hr_fan

Mat is better as winger, he is a terrific player, but not that nimble and flexible enough to be a defender... not permanently anyway. He'll cover the spot well, when needed but he is better up field causing havoc. Midge

Taylor is a better midfielder than in defender, we don't have another option so Dejan should play LB until January when we can purchase another player then drop Dejan to the bench. Agree with Storagematt should of signed Barry, at Villa he is playing very well I hear. nelson

Dejan shouldn't be made a scape goat for a couple of fluky losses against talented opposition. Think back to pre the Bolton & Spurs games to the job he did. Nothing against Matt Taylor but Dejan has been doing the job & a couple of fluky losses shouldn't change the back four. Am looking forward to seeing Douala on the left side once he's fit since I think we need more of a wing game going on to cause havoc on other team's defences.

Also don't agree that Lua Lua and Kanu cannot make a good strike partnership. One game won't show chemistry. It may sound unreasonable but Im quite honestly fed up with Benjani's lack of finishing. He may be a good set up man but we bought him to score goals & if can't do so he'll be spending a lot of time on the bench once Andy Cole is fit.

No room for sentiment if we want to be top ten. Look at Man U when a player steps out of line. We need a little streak on & off the pitch. Nice guys win f all.

i think dejan should be dropped but from the team, opinion and everyone has their own opinion. It looks like most fans also want to atleast see Taylor at left back

Somewhat disagree, but I suspect Harry will put Taylor at left back vs. the Hammers anyway.

No More Quarter Final Replays For Pompey

Should Portsmouth progress through to an FA Cup quarter final from the 2016/17 season onwards, the game will no longer be subject to a replay.

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.
