This is what 007 considers Pompey’s best 11.
The problem with us oldies is playing formations and combining the old with the new. I am like Chix and favour two wide men. So therefore, Peter Harris and Jackie Henderson, possibly Pompey’s fastest in living memory would be on the flanks.
Jimmy Dickinson and Len Phillips cover the defensive and creative midfield respectively. Derek Dougan and Jack Froggatt would play anywhere. Norman Uprichard in goal if sober. Ray Crawford to lead the attack. Distin central defence, depending where Froggatt played. Jackie Mansell at left back if fit. I have a dilemma at right back, but Primus and Johnson should be considered.
Finally one must assume that all selections relate to the players peak playing period during their Pompey career.
GK – Norman Uprichard – If sober.
RB – Linvoy Primus or Glen Johnson
CD – Sylvain Distin
CD – Jack Froggatt – or left side attack.
LB – Jackie Mansell. If fully fit. (Not often)
MF – Len Phillips – seeing is believing.
MF – Derek Dougan – or any position.
MF – Jimmy Dickinson-non finer.
RW – Peter Harris
CF – Ray Crawford-Before injury.
LW – Jackie Henderson.
