This is what stillthewhizz considers Pompey’s best 11.
GK – David James – Needs absolutely no explanation. Sure he’s mad as hatters and sure he has gaffs but it seems every keeper in the modern game is prone to gaffs now.
DR – Linvoy Primus – It’s hard to not go for Distin because I think Distin is probably the best defender we’ve ever had but Linvoy did it for so long for us even after getting dropped so many times.
DL – Andy Awford – I had to feature one of the Pompey legends somewhere and why not Awfs. He was rock solid and sadly his career ended early by injury.
DC – Sol Campbell – Rock solid, cool headed and experienced.
DC – Jason Cundy – Another player whose career was shortened by injury. The guy was rock solid and was another bright spark for some very poor teams.
M – Jeff Peron – A surprise selection perhaps but he was one of a few shining lights in some very dull years.
M – Robert Prosinecki – Was the first sign of real glamour in the Mandaric reign and the first time I think we really had hope of ever getting out of Division 1 (the Championship).
M – Paul Merson – There’s no room for defensiveness in my 11. Mers was so instrumental in our promotion season it seems such a shame he fell out of favour with the management.
S – Yakubu – Have we seen a better finisher at Fratton Park? Shame he was so lazy.
S – Peter Crouch – Yes he was lanky, yes he went on to play for Scum and yes I wouldn’t want him back. But teamed with Prosinecki’s balls he was ‘formidable’. (I never thought I’d say that word in the same breath as Peter Crouch)
S – Paul Walsh – Where would Whittingham’s goals have been without him? Walshy’s antics are a distant fond memory.
Excuse my ‘youth’ with my selection – I’m only 21. Again I’m finding it pretty hard not to pick most of the current squad because in terms of quality they really are the best we’ve ever had.
