Yes, Pompey’s got talent so we can produce at least one worthwhile Academy graduate! Not my vote, yours – although these findings from russellm’s poll are thoughts that I share.

Clearly we cannot say this will definitely happen, but with the steps being put in place there is every chance that Pompey could some day again produce some real talent from within what promises – all being well – to be a fruitful youth set up that we currently have, and we hope to improve on further still.

This talent might not be strictly from the Pompey area, which would be the ideal thing in a perfect world, but I long for the day when Pompey actually field a player again that has come through our own youth system, which I can see happening to be honest, with this not just being in hope but also expectation.

What the poll asked – Given HR’s preference for ‘experience’ can we have a worthwhile Academy from which to find a star?

How you voted – Yes, Pompey’s got talent 66%, More chance of finding Shergar shagging Lord Lucan 13%, 3 opes, Bob, no and brown enverl 13%, So many NASA will buy a season ticket 5%, Academies are nothing more than a sop to the rules 3%

Current Poll – Pompey 7 Reading 4, what a game – I am still saying that even now. 11 goals, with 7 from Pompey in what is almost certainly the most entertaining game I have ever seen.

Any Pompey goal is good – if you are a Pompey fan – be clearly some of the seven were better than others, not only in terms of quality but maybe importance, but which was you favourite this is want Lysimachus wants to know with this – ‘Favourite goal against Reading?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
