David James!

‘Jamo was the best keeper that we had during our premier league years’, not my vote, yours – although these findings from the forum poll to determine who was our stand out man between the sticks during the 7-year stay on the premier league…

The premier league years have brought us many ups and downs and many good and bad players; we focus on the good here though!

It is fair to say that James is right up there with the best keepers that we have had, right? Many would say that he is our best keeper full stop – I think it has to be mighty close to being that case in all honesty.

The England international – will he become ‘former international’ next season though? – has, for me, totally changed my opinion on him during his time with Pompey, something that may well be coming to an end any day now…That ‘calamity’ tag that he had is something that I think many fans DO retain until he plays for YOUR club – yep he has made mistakes with us, but you show me a keeper that does not? I could count on one hand the number of genuine, no two ways about it, the fault lays at his door mistakes.

I think that he would be worth 10-20pts for us this season in the no power league and would help the continued development of Liam O’Brien, although I am struggling to believe that Jamo will stay with us this season, but fingers crossed…

Speaking purely for myself I think that a mention also need to go to Shaka Hislop – he always played the game with a smile and was fantastic during his time with us. For me he was discarded too soon, but hey ho.
