It was not just those connected to Pompey that were impressed by our 3-0 win over Everton the weekend before last, this was also acknowledged by the likes of Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry who awarded us the F&C Investments performance of the week.

Harry Redknapp was pleased to receive this award with him telling the Pompey Site: ‘it was a great performance. Not many teams will go to Goodison Park and win this season.

‘We changed the formation and it worked. You can work on changes in training but there`s no guarantee that it will work in a match situation.

‘The wing-back system suits the players that I’ve got here. Sol is happier playing in the middle of three at the back and Glen and Armand were terrific along the flanks. Both have great pace and are excellent going forward.

‘All the team played well. David James was again outstanding and made some great saves, including the penalty which was crucial at that time.

‘Crouch and Defoe were excellent and that`s the best they’ve played for us. They showed what a threat they can be.’

An engraved crystal football has been presented to him and this presentation will be screened on Soccer Saturday on sky sports this weekend.
