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%

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.
