Quite a catch

Quite a catch
Was it a race, no not really with a massive 60% vote, including mine for David James with Alan Knight coming up a respectable 2nd with 19%.

Shaka also received a respectable 8%, he certainly was an excellent keeper who helped us into the Premiership until he, following the appointment of a new manager Alain Perrin, fell out of favour and failed to regain the shirt that went to the ex-Liverpool keeper Westerveld, and when his contract expired in June 2005, we released by him.

For me where the surprises are well certainly the percentage votes for Yoshi and Chalky (particularly) receiving a 3% higher score than Peter Mellor, perhaps either my age, or the age of the voters or some mischievous voting.

Jamie Ashdown's 2% is also interesting as it raises the question, there are five keepers out of the ones listed we think were better, however eight worse.

You decided..............

Your choice for the best keeper since 1971 out of these?

David James 60%
Alan Knight 19%
Shaka Hislop 8%
Yoshi Kawaguchi 4%
Constantinos Chalkias 4%
Jamie Ashdown 2%
Asmir Begovic 2%
Peter Mellor 1%
Phil Figgins 0%
Russell Hoult 0%
Sasa Ilic 0%
David Best 0%
Aaron Flahavan 0%
Mart Poom 0%

    Difficult to argue against Jamo. He was at times wonderful. Look at the clean sheets we kept & at the level we were at. An unforgettable giant for Pompey.

    Yep infuriating as the gaffes were, as Hollywood as some of the saves were- and they were; the man kept us in the game and got us more points than he lost. He had a good defence in front of him and commanded it well; lesson to the current mob me thinks.

    Kawaguchi & Chalkias beat Begovic? Do we have a secret Greek/Japonese fanbase on Vital?

    On this day in history...20th September

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 20th September.

    More Reliable Than A League 1 Octopus? (20/9/17)

    Time for the special computer that crunches the numbers to determine the final League One positions for the season of 2017/18.

    Roberts opens up

    In fairness when Gary Roberts - obviously now at Wigan - says Kenny Jackett showed 'a lack of respect' towards him in the final weeks of his Pompey career it's hard to disagree.

    Next in (the firing) line

    Of course, Huddersfield loanee Holmes-Dennis is out for the season after suffering ligament damage now - having initially had to sit behind Haunstrup - McCrory has a twisted knee.
