The tale of the two 'W's

The tale of the two 'W's
As in all reports I can nick the line your vote not mine.

In this one I would like to tell you the background behind what I am doing, why and give you the result of the first poll.

Background and Why

I'm sure there are many that have been going to Fratton Park longer than me; my first game was in 1971 against Arsenal in the cup, since then I've seen loads of players playing different styles and I thought I'll give you all a go to mash up a team formation 4-4-2, as such I started with strikers.

First problem is because I am trying to represent 39 years of players into one team some miss out e.g. Toddy, Yak, to name but two from my poll provided Rug's ok for me to continue they still have a chance but more of that later and yes I plan to poll for Manager and chairman as well!!

So the scores on the door's

Guy Whittingham 29%
Paul Walsh 20%
Other 18%
Mark Hateley 12%
Kanu 6%
Peter Crouch (both spells combined) 5%
Hamilton Thorpe 3%
Mickey Quinn 3%
John Aloisi 2%
Billy Rafferty 1%
Lee Bradbury 1%
Derek Showers 0%
Ron Davies 0%

So Walsh and Whittingham are in, how did Hamilton Thorpe score the same as Mickey Quinn?

Hope to see you all soon and if anyone has that square of grass I bought (I think for 1 can I have it back please)

    Saw most of those play, got to say though the partnership of the 2 W's back in 1993 season was second to none, Whittingham was the goal machine, but Walshie was the architect for most of them

    Arsenal in 71 happy days and the delayed replay too, Went to the lot. As to Walsh and Whittingham I would go for Walsh and Hateley!

    Yet again I admit error, that Santa outfit on the pitch is a fond memory Biley will appear in another list.
