Ricky Holmes: Desperate to get involved

Winger Holmes has yet to start in the league for Pompey since joining from Barnet in the summer, with Andy Barcham and Jed Wallace currently filling the wide positions.

But Whittingham says the 26-year-old's chance will come.

"Barch and Jed are doing well but I know he's dead keen to get in," said Whittingham.

"When people see him for a couple of games they will know we have three players out wide who can attack well.

'"There's no real reason why he's been held back. There's three players for two positions so someone has to miss out."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
