New Forwards For The Team

New Forwards For The Team
There is a significant change in our forward line so I'm glad I ran the poll. Last time I ran this poll, which was my first one I naively forgot several key players and as a result felt it only just to re run the poll but include a few different options.

Last time I ran the poll the result gave a Walsh and Whittingham front pair however a huge downward swing for Paul Walsh saw him come in at a lowly equal 6th place. I accept that a big part of this was the change of some players, however there was a big difference in the voting for Mark Hateley who featured on both lists.

A front pairing now of Todorov and Whittingham is the final result Biley scored very highly a sign of the respect for which he is still held.

I was surprised to see Sheringham come out quite that low considering the impact his experience helped us at such a vital time. And it seems a bit of Tottenham backlash did for Crouch and Defoe.

The Final Scores were

Todorov 24%
Whittingham 22%
Biley 19%
Hateley 10%
Yakubu 6%
Walsh 6%
Kemp 3%
Nugent 3%
Quinn 2%
Sheringham 1%
Bradbury 1%
Claridge 1%
Crouch 1%
Defoe 1%

The team is mow:

GK James
Back Four Primus, de Zeeuw, Blake, Taylor
Winger Anderton
Midfield Merson, Prosinecki
Forwards Todorov, Whittingham.
Chairman Mandaric.

The next poll is for that luxury player to fit our team enjoy.

    I voted Todorov, but to have Yakubu so low is ridiculous and kind of re-enforces my point of view that Pompey fans are a touch myopic; one just has to remember the Harry Redknapp/Voldermort thing; pathetic in the extreme. I also note the Crouch, Defoe scores; they are absolutely not in anyway related to their ability or effect in the time they were with us, just some perceived personal slight- again ridiculous.

    PLayers like Biley are still loved as much for their attitude as their skill. We love the hard working terrier type with a cheeky chappie persona. Or is it just the mullet?

    I thinks its got as much to do with the age of the viewer, i still think some of the best football was played by the 3rd Division Champions team and there has been no better target man than Billy Rafferty in my eyes(46 years of age, short sighted with a stigmatism)

    If Chix were about he would be devastated that Dave Kemp only got 3% - he still sings the Kemp songs you know.

    Jimsmithswig has a fair point aboutthe age of the beholder; I'm fairly rehistoric. I met Biley on a number of occasions - he used to go out with my mate's sister but he wasn't in the class of Crouch and Defoe, in what they could do to top class opponents . Quite frankly none of Pompey's front men have been, accept maybe Hately or Mickey Chanon or the ex Tractor Boy on their promotion winning best days.
