Pompey could have 3 players in the next England squad in Sol Campbell, David James and one other! Not my vote, yours – although these findings from the poll are thoughts I think could happen, although it is probably unlikely.

David James and Sol Campbell have been frozen out of the England squad since the world cup last summer – with Campbell disgracefully informed of this decision by answer message by the Spineless one and James constantly overlooked despite it openly acknowledged by most fans that he was the best English keeper around last season – however they were given a glimmer of hope by Spineless Steve last week when he hinted at recalls for one, if not both.

Yep, these two, James without any doubt, deserve recalls and should it happen, if our other English players can impress against United at Fratton on Wednesday when we get a visit from Spineless then who knows – it may well be possible that others could get in also? If so my thinking Matty Taylor is heading this list at present.

All we can do now is wait and hope that these players do impress when he watches – as if they do we will not have a better chance of seeing Pompey’s first England international since Mark Hateley in 1984.

What the poll asked – Who, if anyone will get the illusive nod from Spineless Steve with England selection next week?

How you voted – Jamo, Sol & 1 other 35%, Sol 28%, None of them 15%, Jamo 6%, Taylor 6%, Jamo, Sol & 2 others 4%, O`Neil 2%, Nugent 2%, Jamo & Sol 2%, All of them 0%

Current Poll – Most people had hoped that David Nugent would open his account for Pompey against Derby at the weekend, unfortunately this was not to be the case, although I am sure it will come soon.

Nugent has the quality needed to succeed at this level, which I am certain he will, but until he scores that first competitive goal for Pompey he will always have his doubters – although not many, if any, will come from within the Pompey supporting ranks.

When do we think this goal come though, this is what pentonpompey wants to know – ‘when do you think David Nugent will score his first league goal?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
