‘Martin Cranie is the right back for Pompey in 2009/10’, not my vote, yours – although these findings from the forum poll to determine who we think should be this right back, for the 11 players we will select, are thoughts that I do just about agree with to be honest…

I have my reservations about Cranie, but if he is good enough now is the time for him to prove it.

Younes Kaboul and Marc Wilson are both players that would feature strongly for me in the squad, and even the side, this season but I do not think that right back is their strongest position – then again I am not sure that this is also the case for Cranie, but like I say it is time to find out!

If he is good enough for England at U21 level he is worth a crack for us, right?

So long as he has the right player in front of him, for me that is something that could prove very important for him and us, then we may very well have selected wisely.

  • What the poll asked – 2009/10 Pompey team – right back?

  • How you voted – Martin Cranie – 6 Votes [35.29%], New player (do not list names, just vote!) – 5 Votes [29.41%], Younes Kaboul – 4 Votes [23.53%], Marc Wilson – 2 Votes [11.76%], James Hurst – 0 Votes [0%], Other (from our current squad – if so who?) – 0 Votes [0%]

    This poll was conducted in a thread in the Portsmouth Posts forum – click here.

    So, 4-4-2 is what we are going with and James in goal, The Herminator at left back and Cranie at right back…

    We now have to continue to fill in the blanks for our 2009/10 Pompey 11 – which we will select from the squad we currently have, well what is left of it!

    Again we will do this in the Portsmouth Posts forum with the latest poll question we want answering, which asks:

    2009/10 Pompey team – central defence (1)? – click here to vote.

    Before we move on what are your thoughts on what the last forum poll concluded? You know what to do, thoughts below please guys…
