Sean Davis: I'm Happy at Pompey

Sean Davis: I'm Happy at Pompey

Sean Davis has put to bed rumours that he is unhappy at Pompey but does admit he can`t score to save his life at the moment.

Davis told the local Portsmouth paper;

'I'm naturally a defensive midfielder, but Pedro Mendes is playing there fantastically. I can't score goals to save my life, even though I'm playing as an attacking midfielder. I have to be the one going forward and taking the initiative.

'I enjoy the freedom to get forward more. The trouble is, I couldn't hit a barn door at the moment. But the main thing is that the team are doing well. You have to put aside your own issues.

'Pedro is doing really well in the position, and the team is doing well, so you can't have any complaints.


Sean Davis has made a bet with Gary O`Neil that neither of them can cut their hair until they score.

'Why would I have a silly bet like that?I was growing my hair anyway, but I said to Gary he couldn't cut his hair until he scored either. But he is getting into the positions to score.'

Davis was once selected for an England squad.

'If it comes, it comes. But if I'm being realistic, I can't see myself playing for England. I just came down here to play football. I didn't look to see where they were in the league or anything. Playing football was the issue for me. And I got a lot of games under my belt.

'I had terrible problems with my knee, but it's great now. It's the best it's ever felt. When you've got no troubles, no injuries, you can work on your game.

'It's good to be back in the team. I feel as fit as I have done for a long time. I'm happy and healthy, with a good family life. Things are going well for me personally.'

I'll take goals from anyone so long as we win but would be nice to see Davis and/or O'Neil score soon. As for Davis playing for England, I'd think it is highly unlikely this will happen, think that chance came and went a few years back...

Needs to put a run of bulldog displays.

Good player but never really had a good run of games at Tottenham but hey! Tottenham's loss is your gain!

Davis was a good signing for us back in January. He took his time to get fit and gel with the squad but he did say we haven't seen the best of him. Since then he has played well and been a big part of the Pompey squad. I'd rather have him in our team than against our team.

I guess if O'Neills not fit he gets his chance - would still like to see more goal scoring opportunities taken from him though. Benjani and Davis could be penned the 'Black and White Misstrels'
