From looking at 'The Glovers', the official matchday programme after the game on Saturday it completely hit me that we have a very tasty looking squad!
This is even though some names were missing from this list and others maybe will leave or are not even hear anymore, most notably Ivica Mornar - who, for anyone that has not seen this programme was honestly listed!
The keepers are not an area that really need looking at, but should anything happen to England's best keeper David James - god forbid, I would still have complete faith in Jamie Ashdown if he came in.
The full back areas were maybe looking light, but with new recruits in Martin Cranie - who so long as he gives 100%, as I am sure he will, I will back completely even if others cannot look past his saints background - along with Herman Hreidarsson, add to that the return of Richard Duffy we have extra competition for places at left and right back to that which we already had.
In the heart of defence we have three players, Sol Campbell, Sylvain Distin and Linvoy Primus that could literally get into most other teams in the league, that leave us incredibly strong, particularly as others can fill in too and I would include Andy O'Brien in this too, as he looked really good against Yeovil - who are no mugs.
Midfield, well this is as strong as any teams in the country with real international quality players throughout. We were looking good before with what we had, but with the arrival of Sulley Muntari, the permanent signing of Arnold Mvuemba and with what could be the emergence of Franck Songo'o we are spoilt for choice.
The additions of David Nugent and John Utaka left our attacking options looking very much stronger, even with the departure of Svetoslav Todorov. So with the likely re signing of Kanu, who will prove a real super sub this season, coupled with Benjani and Lomana LuaLua we were not far off a full deck. My thinking was we were still lacking that striking option but at first glance Geovanni looks as though he could prove to be this missing link?
I am not setting sights too high, but when I actually saw the names in a row - adding the others that were not on that programmes list - I could not help but say 'this is a bloody strong squad now, with genuine quality in all positions'. Better still we have virtual like for like replacements in all areas, even if these are maybe not quite to the quality of the person who would get the nod first of all - but they would not be far off it.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
