Pompey needs to improve on the strikers that we have! Not my vote, yours – although these findings from muffdaddy1983’s poll are thoughts that I do share, but maybe not exclusively.

Little surprises eh, but most think that we need to get a new striker to improve our squad, which yes I would agree with, however in terms of the formation which we are currently playing would this really be beneficial?

Even playing 4-3-3, as with a 4-5-1 formation we are only playing one out and out striker so I cannot fully understand what the benefit of signing a striker would bring? He would have to be a real – and I mean real – goalscorer to be the one striker selected wont he – and ahead of anyone we currently have at that.

To be honest with Benjani, David Nugent and Kanu I would say we have enough even taking into account the African Nations if we carry on with the current formation. So in order to fully justify a new striker in January my own thinking is we would have to go back to a 4-4-2 to fit not only him in, but also one of the 3 out and out strikers we currently have?

What the poll asked – Where do you think Pompey need to improve?

How you voted – Strikers 65%, Nowhere 16%, Goalkeeper 6%, Manager 6%, Defence 4%, Midfield 3%

Current Poll – We all know that Fortress Fratton generates the best atmosphere in the world from the best fans in the world too even if the facilities are ‘lacking slightly!’

We all have a favourite away ground – do we not – in terms of facilities, how we are treated and how good the atmosphere is from their home fans? But which is the favourite from the list on offer, this is want NinjaTim wants to know with this – ‘which is/was the best ground; considering facilities, treatment of away fans & atmosphere generated by home fans?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

The full title of this poll would not fully fit into the polls title, but you get the point.
