Pompey's best 11 - Gleams

Pompey's best 11 - Gleams
Ruggage, my favourite Pompey XI!!

Goalkeeper: Jamo How many points have been won from Jamo, brilliant keeper, and not only goes down as my favourite pompey keeper, but also the best I've seen. Shaka came in a close second, but Jamo is a different class.

Defence:

RB: Glen and Brian I loved Priske, he wasn't the best, but was a good defender, and when Harry came back, did his job, and was an integral part of the Great Escape in my opinion. But it has to go to another present Pompey Player, Johnson. I was a doubter, when he came back, but he is showing the potential he once showed as a youth player, with his mini mofo afro :)

CB: Sol (c) My captain of my team, and probably the best talent I've seen in a pompey shirt, The mighty Sol. Love him, he's a legend, nuff said.

CB: Primus Its got to be Linvoy. Not only a club legend, but he gives it his all, and is a great team player. Shame about his injury, but he's been a great servant, and will always be remembered as a Pompey hero in my book. close second, Arjan.

LB: Andy Awford Didn't see much of him, always injured! But when he did play, he got a real buzz from the crowd, and as a small kid, I really liked him.

Midfield:

RW: Gary O'Neil My favourite player for many a year, always gave 100 percent, and as a youth player coming through, gave him extra credentials. Shame he had to go, heavily missed.

CM: Merson Fantastic guy, did wonders when he came, and won us promotion. He's out of position in my team, but regardless, he was another great player, and I'm glad I got a chance to see him.

CM: Mendes Although, not been at his best this season, he's in here purely because of his two goals against City, whether we would of survived or not without them, I'm not sure, but I doubt it. Not only that, his reaction to Ben Thatcher's incident was superb, and a real gentleman.

LW: D'Alessandro Who else?? Andres!! D'Alessandro, was and still is, my favourite ever pompey player. Don't know why I took to him so much, maybe because of his debut, a freezing cold night against Bolton, where he ran the show, or his brilliant effort against Charlton. He was a different class in the average pompey team that stayed up.

Forwards:

ST: Todorov Goals after goals he scored for us in the championship, shame he didn't hack it in the prem, through injuries, but a great guy, and was prolific when he was fully fit.

ST: Yakubu Kept us up in the first season through his goals. not the most committed player granted, but never the less, a real talent and is in my team because of it.

There you have it, my pompey all-time XI.

I'm sure that with that team, we would be a team still challenging for Europe, with many present players in the squad, but this is from a youth perspective.

You can really tell how old people are with their 11's can't you? No Biley or Webb or any of that for Gleams!

Almost there...stay on target

The win over Newport saw Pompey react well to the defeat to Stevenage with most results going in the Blues' favour too, meaning we've effectively got a seven point buffer on Boro.
