McGee the Pompey no.1

McGee the Pompey no.1

Luke McGee is the Pompey no.1, right? Erm, wrong it seems as Kenny Jackett doesn't tend to agree. On-loan Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Stephen Henderson appears his go too man?

Henderson's return to Fratton Park came out of the blue, but Jackett said he'd had an interest in him for a while, saying he feels McGee will benefit in the long-term from a spell out of the limelight, all but admitting the Irishman will start against Doncaster on Saturday.

Jackett told the News: 'I would think he would come straight in (to the starting line-up). I never necessarily pick the side on a Thursday, but for Luke I feel a step backwards to go forwards in the long run will be good for him. Stephen Henderson is someone I have been interested for a while and I'm pleased to get him.'

Yes, I'm a fan of Henderson, I thought he was top class during his first spell, which only came to an end out of necessity, but McGee has impressed since arriving from Tottenham in the summer so wasn't someone I thought needed replacing.

It was a close call but more feel McGee should be the Pompey no.1.

What the poll asked - Who will be the no.1?

How you voted - McGee 58%
Henderson 42%

Apparently, Jackett disagrees though and he's the one who gets paid to make these decisions. Time will tell if he's right, in fairness and I can understand his reasoning and hope it does indeed benefit the former Spurs academy player.

Having mentioned Doncaster above; we move onto this game at Fratton Park.

Jackett seems to have completely lost the plot, making more unnecessary loan deals and increasing our wage budget for no good reason, then giving away Bennett using cutting the wage bill he's just inflated as an excuse for his largesse. Meanwhile our number of available midfielders and defenders shrinks. Another month or more like January, where points go begging due to our inability to score goals and we'll be where Argyle was a month or so ago! But yeah, blame it all on the goalie with fewer goals conceded than just about any other goalie in League One!

Could't agree more, its totally obvious where the problems are with the squad, Jackett was even quoted earlier in the week saying prehaps we have missed a bit of experience and know how in midfield. wow! how long did it take him to realise that! He then goes out and gets a right back and goal keeper lol you could't write it. Whatever he's on can I have some please.
