Pompey Fan Eleven #31

Pompey fan John Lish goes for a 3-5-2 formation with the killer combination of Dillon and Diarra in central midfield


David James

Possibly the best keeper I’ve seen at Fratton. At times was simply a magnificent presence between the sticks.

Linvoy Primus 

Linvoy epitomises the spirit of Pompey. Never gave up and gave everything for the cause.

Noel Blake

From being a target for racists to twice voted player of the year. Noel was one of my heroes.

Sylvain Distin 

Simply classy. A complete central defender. Sol Campbell may have been the big name but Distin was star quality.

Glen Johnson 

Absolute quality player who learnt to defend at Pompey to add to his attacking instincts.

Michael Thomas

Thomas was dazzling during an all too brief loan. Obvious quality and all-round ability was transparent.

Lassana Diarra

Alongside Robert Prosinecki, Lass is perhaps the outstanding midfielder I have seen at Fratton in nearly 40 years.

Kevin Dillon

Competitive, skilful, mobile with an eye for a pass, Dillon provided class and feistiness to the midfield.

Robert Prosinecki

A free role for the astonishing Prosinecki. A glorious player and just pips Paul Merson to this role.

Paul Walsh

A bundle of energy, skill and fire. Walshie made Jim Smith’s team tick in 92/93.


What can you say about the King? Played another game to most on the field and capable of other-worldly brilliance.
