john utaka was again very disappointing for me, this bad form has gone on for far too long and now i really do think that it is time to try matty taylor and kranjcar on either wing - utaka, no matter how much he cost cannot keep a place in the side regardless... matty taylor got on for 2 minutes at the end, but i think that 'arry should have brought him on when he had kanu for utaka.

Totally agree about Utaka, definately didnt earn his wages, the poorest performance by a pompey player by a mile...although Pedro challenged him in the 1st half, bally awful, thankfully he put his football head on in the 2nd.

And i can now see why Benji has scored 8 goals this season...someone has told him to be more selfish...would somebody tell him there are 9 other outfield players to pass to!!

agreed mate benji still works as hard as ever but he has got to start remebering that he is still 'part of a team' and has to start passing again, we dont need or want another lualua on our hands so we!

when utaka started by tacking back into the corner to make a tackle i thought 'were on' but he once agin did little or nothing... he might blow hot and cold but he is freezing at the moment so why not take this oppotunity to start preapring for his 'forced' absense by making him force his way back into the starting 11 instead of - sorry to be harsh - basically playing with 9 outfield players as we have for large periods in recent weeks, as for them ost part we may as well have...

I love Benji, but there is a limit to how many times he can run into a brick wall

yep, very true and this did happen a fair bit against villa didnt it - im all for him keep trying to score, but if a pass if a better or more realistic option it is one that needs to be taken.

i didnt actually particually notice benji loosing the ball too often...the amount of yellow cards was a little riduclas! when the first one ws given to the villa player, i thought "here we go"...then they eased off, then he just gave them for every single foul!!!
