Full back's in charge and the team so far

Full back's in charge and the team so far
Well some relatively simple choices for the full back positions in our side with Linvoy and Matt Taylor taking the honours. (I also selected both these two) I do feel some sympathy for Glen Johnston, he scored very highly at 32% but up against Linvoy he was always going to struggle, also John Beresford received a very respectable score.

Major points of interest to me were the results of Belhadj and Traore, considering the relatively short time they were with us and the competition they faced, not least from each other these are high scores.

Personally I thought Hermann Hreidarsson may have scored slightly higher, but I was very impressed to see Joel Ward and Greg Halford doing so well (considering it is their first season.)

The result of 'Your choice for the full backs since 1971'

Matt Taylor 42%

Forwards I am about to issue a new poll, I forgot too many players.

I currently have a poll running for Chairman; this will be following this with one for a 'luxury player' followed by the subs and then finally the Manager.

    Agreed Mick, harsh on Johnson, especially seen as in my opinion Linvoy was better utilised at centre back. Still looking like a great team though.

    Big Ben returns!

    There's no doubting how important Davies is to us, we most definitely missed the former Sheffield United man against Orient but Cook's confirmed he'll start against Bristol Rovers.

    Winning over the fans

    Cook feels he still has to 'win over a proportion' of the fans at Pompey?

    Tubbs surprised...in a way he has a point

    5-goals in a combined total of 8-matches isn't a bad return is it so having made his move to Eastleigh this week I get Tubbs' point at his surprise Cook wasn't selecting him.
