Champions Review: Player by Player - Michael Smith

Champions Review: Player by Player - Michael Smith

Finishing top of the league, here's a run down on the men who got us there: Michael Smith.

STRIKER

Michael Smith (Played 18 (4 as Sub) Scored 3):

Another one who got a pretty tough time from fans. Cook's first choice at the start of the season, he fell out of favour after failing to impress. But when he worked his way back into the team (thanks to an EFL Trophy hat-trick) he looked like a different player.

His hold up play was fantastic and won Man of the Match in 5 games out of 7. But a poor run of form saw Smith become the scapegoat, and with the addition of Eoin Doyle to the squad he left on loan to Northampton.

Yes, far from the best player we're seen at Fratton Park but miles away from the worst? Always a trier and, as Frippy pointed out, Man of the Match winning in a string of games but confidence was shot when fans turned on him - I didn't think that was the Pompey way? I was also always under the impression if someone gave it 100% that was usually good enough... Cannot see a way back for him at Fratton now, but will Northampton sign him?!

Baker has a Pompey future... apparently

A few eyebrows were raised when Carl Baker, who continues to be linked with Coventry, was left out of the squad to face Walsall. I think we've all see then social media reaction?

On this day in history...22nd August

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 22nd August.

Improvement needed

Milan Lalkovic, making his last appearance for Pompey since January, prior to a loan switch to Ross County, returned from injury to face his former club Walsall on Saturday.

Match highlights - Pompey 1-1 Walsall

Pompey are still unbeaten at Fratton Park - recovering from the defeat at Oxford - but unlike the Rochdale win we had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw against Walsall on Saturday.
