82% Want Dejan Out

82% of readers want Dejan Stefanovic out of the side. Such a high number, may seem slightly harsh considering how loyal he has been to the club.

55% of voters said that Dejan should be (and will be) dropped from the team, with Matty Taylor coming in at left back. This would allow Kranjcar to play left midfield and Pompey would have two attacking wing backs, in Glen and Matt.

27% thought that he should remain in the team, continuing the role of left back. Some people have been impressed with him at left back and believe that we look better defensively.

18% think that Dejan should be left out of the team but don`t believe that Harry has the guts to drop him. Harry wasn`t the one that made him captain but hasn`t changed the captaincy on his return.

YOUR VIEWS

yep agree, he cant be an automatic start now, at spurs they pretty much concentrated on him and it showed russellm

as much as i like Matty i don’t think he’s a good defender. He trys his hardest but when he’s at left back the opposition concentrates there even harder. I think he’s a good winger but not a good defender. Linvoy#1

really like Taylor, and would have no problems with him playing at left back, although personally I think Dejan has shown his best form for sometime this season playing at left back, has defended well and also got forward well. I don’t think Niko did him many favours on sunday to be honest, he left him exposed a lot and one person can only do so much. With Taylor in front of Dejan we’ve looked better. Even if Taylor plays at left back, although he is far more mobile than Dejan I think we’ll be left with the same scenario with Taylor being expossed… pompeyrug

Pompeyrug, i dont agree. Kruchie was the most dangerous mitfielder in our team. Taylor is a big figter, but he lacks tehnique to play up front so he has to play in back four or be on the bench… Niko is our future alongside Fernandes. hr_fan

Mat is better as winger, he is a terrific player, but not that nimble and flexible enough to be a defender… not permanently anyway. He’ll cover the spot well, when needed but he is better up field causing havoc. Midge

Taylor is a better midfielder than in defender, we don’t have another option so Dejan should play LB until January when we can purchase another player then drop Dejan to the bench. Agree with Storagematt should of signed Barry, at Villa he is playing very well I hear. nelson

They`ve had their say now you have yours!
