Sean Davis - instrumental cog

Sean Davis - instrumental cog

During the summer if anyone had told me that Sean Davis would have been an instrumental component of the Pompey side, let alone the squad this season I probably would not have believed them...

To be honest out of all the midfielders we had at that time he was the one that I would have least minded seeing leave - not so now.

For some reason - although I must admit he might not have been my favourite player - he had come in for some major stick earlier in the season, which I could not understand really, but he has well and truly rammed this down people's throats to become one of the first names on the team sheet.

He not only offers great protection to the defence but also bombs forward remarkably well - but his finishing has been abysmal! The goal he thought he scored against Reading has also been taken away from him now, given as an own goal.

Already he must be an early contender for player of the season, as he has been that good. As much as I rate Pedro Mendes I honestly cannot see Davis being kept out by him… who would have also thought this could be the case either.

Harry Redknapp has said that he is showing 'England form', which if he can maintain this then you never know, he may well still get back into the England reckoning yet.

I really do have to hold my hand up to this one...I almost wanted him to leave in the summer because I thought Hughie was better....I was so wrong, he seriousley has changed his game to suite the team! good work Sean!

Davis is quality on his day. I was a bit gutted when he left Tottenham. If he gets back to the form of 4 years ago, then you lot will have a top player. One of those players mind that hasn't reached his full potential.

i tend to agree with you CharlieChimes he was the 1 that i would have let go in the summer, but not now... ive always liked the fella but felt he was the 1 that would have been least missed - but not now.

Wasn't impressed with the lad last season, but this formation has really seen him make that 'defensive midfielder' spot his own in impressive fashion. He's tackled well, been key in linking the play and creating chances, and has even got forward well when required. As 'Arry would say, he's been a big big player for us.

Couldn't agree more. I think he's really surpirsed a lot of us this season. Hope he continues to improve.

Been really impressed with his performances this year ... I don't know if his best mate Gary O'Neil going has woken him up a bit (they used to be the ones in the squad that were always mucking about) but whatever the reason he's pulled his socks up and is proving to be a crackin' player - I said a couple of weeks back that he'd be my player of the year so far and I'm sticking by it - He might not have Benji's goals or Sylvain's poise but at a club where hard graft gets notice and appreciated he has to be tops in my book - Hope he keeps it up...
