Just a highly-regarded quartet remain in our unofficial, unscientific tournament to find out who is Pompey fans' favourite Blues defenfer of all-time.

Along the way we've lost some greats - like Noel Blake, Jimmy Dickinson, Slyvain Distin and Matt Taylor - and we're now at the semi-final stage.

Ties are being decided by 24-hour Twitter votes on the @stevebone1 timeline - with updates also to come on the @pompeylive account ... all this at a time when the Forgotten Pompey Goals Twitter account is running another of its popular polls, to find followers' favourite PFC awayday.
