Surprise, surprise Glen Johnson!

This was a no brainer really, there was only ever going to be one serious winner of this – ok, there might have been one or two candidates but the right back was the clear favourite and front runner all the way…

Johnson has been a rock for Pompey this season, I think you only have to look at the stat that I think we have not won a league game in which he has not started – in fact I think we might have lost the lot?

His consistent form and his fantastic ability, with this ability getting better all the time, has made him a regular in the England squad with him now looking like he has made the right back spot his own.

In all honesty I am expecting him to leave this summer but ‘if’ we can get that new owner in, and the noises that I am hearing are ‘pretty good’, then we ‘might’ stand a decent chance of keeping him for at least another season – as we could most, if not all of our most prized assets… As I say, I do expect him to go, but this for me would be more out of necessity as opposed to choice from him – if he was not happy here why would he have signed a new 4-year contract in January?

These are the thoughts that were shared about him in the forum poll voting…

PompeyFcMad: ‘Glen Johnson all the way. He’s been a great player this season.’

powered_by_pies: ‘Has to be Johnno – I seriously hope we somehow manage to keep him through the summer, but I wouldn’t blame him for wanting a move to a bigger club.

My question is, why haven’t we got a song for him?’

Lemmi: ‘Glen for me. Pies we do have a song it involves toilet seats and B & Q.’

Chix: ‘Johnson gets my vote too and just for Pies….

There’s on-ly onnnnnnne Glen Johnson
…onnnnnnne Glen Johnson
With a toilet seat, from B&Q
Johnson is England’s no2 !’

There were not too many votes on this one but then again there did not need to be, as like I say we all knew this beyond a shadow of a doubt anyway who was going to win this but to see how this voting went click here.

Keep a look out for the other categories that will be appearing in the forum over the coming weeks…
