Portsmouth boys: the homegrown Blues squad awash with talent from likes of West Brom, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Manchester United

It’s a squad bulging with talent currently making waves in football.

And the one thing they all have in common? They’re Pompey boys.

Whether being from Portsmouth or, as is mostly the case, making up part of the club’s academy at one time or another, it’s a group which shows just how much talent comes from our communities.

With Pompey in the Championship next season where there are nine subs used, we’ve assembled a full squad of players with links to the city who are currently playing. How do you think this lot would get on?
