Pompey fans have had their say on noteable Blues triallists Christian Saydee and Andre Wisdom

The pair were one of six new faces brought in by Danny Cowley prior to last weekend’s double-header against the Hawks and Gosport Borough.

And both got their opportunity to shine with 45-minute appearances in both games.

Twenty-year-old striker Saydee arrived from Bournemouth and featured in both first-half squads, putting in strong performances alongside Ronan Curtis and Marcus Harness in attack.

Meanwhile, 29-year-old Wisdom played alongside Haji Mnoga at centre-back in both second-half sides, showing his experience and strength despite spending a year without a club.

Following both games, we took to social media to gauge the Fratton faithful’s verdict on the higher-profile duo.

Here's the best of the reaction from Twitter and Facebook.

Andre Wisdom

@Len87668696: Personally think it would be a decent addition if he gets match fitness back.

@PFCperspectives: A significant downgrade on Hayden Carter. My optimism is waning by the day.

@braddersjw: Is it only me who thinks Andre is actually a good player?

@PompeyRy: If the rumours are true and we bag Andre Wisdom, I'd consider that a huge signing! If we got him, Hirst, a keeper and two spare strikers I'd be very, very happy!

@HarvMarksy: I’d take Andre Wisdom. Had a lot of injury struggles but lots of Championship experience and offers versatility at right-back and centre-back. Should add a lot of wisdom to the side too.

@benellissss: What an awful signing Andre Wisdom would be.

Christian Saydee

@danieledmunds4: Not getting ahead of myself but Christian Saydee golden boot this season.

@Stew_Smith1: Christian Saydee, please don't be another Gassan Ahadme

@DrabbleMatt: Saydee was the most willing to try and take on his man and attack the Hawks back line, that coupled with his strength made him a real threat.

Mark Terry: Saydee was bang average and far too slow.
