'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Defensive thinking

The Pompey squad is looking in 'pretty good' shape on the face of it really; if anything you could argue that it is perhaps a little 'top heavy' still!

I like the look of the squad, and much like Andy Awford told the News today, if the season did start tomorrow I would think we could more than hold our own.

Although 'if' the budget did allow perhaps another central defensive recruit would complete this squad for me...

The Alex Wynter signing this week seemed to conclude our business, certainly as far as defenders went, but AA has 'refused to rule out' another defender arriving so long as they are right for us and 'do not stretch the budget'.

It was central defence that caused us most of our problems last season but I do feel we are in much better shape and, for me, some that 'struggled' last season will do better this time.

Why?

I think this will be down to us better organised, a greater belief and trust is put in players by AA and his coaching staff and most importantly a there is new found confidence ringing around Fratton.

You can get carried up and carried along on the crest of such a wave!

AA will keep his options open, as any manager would, but I do sense it would have to be something special for us to dip into the transfer market again but as he said you can 'never say never'...

We have to Trust Awfs to get his back five right. He has the experience and is paid to make the decisions. Until we see the new signings we cannot judge.
