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%
Linvoy Primus 38%
Glen Johnson 32%
John Beresford 15%
Nadir Belhadj 12%

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.

    On this day in history...29th June

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 29th June.

    Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

    Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

    Solving that goalie quandary

    I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

    Pompey's attacking intent

    Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
