Glen Johnson was the star performer for Pompey against United, not my vote, yours – although these findings from pompeyrug’s poll are thoughts that I do agree with, if one had to be singled out?

It was hard to single anyone out from that fantastic win at Old Trafford as pretty much everyone was outstanding, players, management and fans – everyone? but Johnson put in a hell of a shift, even more so when you consider that John Utaka offered him little help on the right, defensively or offensively!

The one player that I was most pleased for would have been Sol Campbell who was immense compared to how he had been in recent weeks, maybe even months. His positional sense was as good as ever, and unlike many a time recently this was not the decisive factor in bailing him, or us out.

What the poll asked – Man of the match against United?

How you voted – Glen Johnson 48%, Lassana Diarra 17%, Sol Campbell 11%, David James 7%, Niko Kranjcar (81) 7 %, Sylvain Distin 5%, Sub – Milan Baros (54) 4%, Sulley Muntari 1%, Hermann Hreidarsson 0%, Papa Bouba Diop 0%, John Utaka (74) 0%, Kanu (54) 0%, Sub – Lauren (74) 0%, Sub – Richard Hughes (81) 0%

Current Poll – Benjani has gone, this has to be accepted, some have more than others but the simple truth it he is gone. He appears wasted at Citeh, so many are even hoping he ‘might’ return?

Benjani looks such a different player at Citeh, he is not being used in the right way at all, which is making him look a bad player, but can he ever return to Pompey – this is what pompeysno.9 wants to know with this – ‘Will Benjani play for us again one day?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.
