What's More Important Than Finding Pompey's Next Boss?

Grant's Departure Marks A Sad Day - And Another Cruel One

Typically, when it came, Avram Grant’s departure was a little crueller than it needed to be. On Tuesday morning, we were told he was off to West Ham that day. There and then. But Tuesday passed and he was still here; Wednesday the same. Could we hold on to Uncle Avram after all? No. Thursday night brought confirmation he was resigning, presumably ahead of accepting the job at Upton ....

The King Could Stay At Pompey - And Might The Boss Follow His Lead?

Kanu is the surprise name on the list of players Pompey want to hang on to – but will he agree to the cut-price deal the club’s administrators must have drawn up to try to tempt him?

Pompey Key Trio Could Go To Capital - But Will One Big Name Stay?

Three of Pompey’s FA Cup final team could be London-bound – as well, possibly, as manager Avram Grant.

West Ham are favourites to snap him up – and could ask him to take at least two of the Fratton ....

Reality Dawns Again For Pompey's Captain

David James has told how Pompey’s players must look reality in the face again after the end of the FA Cup dream.

A Bone To Pick - Brendon Bone's Thoughts On The Goings On At Fratton Park

So in the end, a one goal to nil scoreline can never reflect how great a game we witnessed at the home of football, but despite losing on paper, our fans were the real winners yesterday.

Grant Looks Forward To The Final That's Good For English Football

It’s reality – and he’s made it so. Grant has spent months telling the Premier League they ....

Pompey Pair Get Wembley Distractions, But Did They Want Them?

Two key members of Pompey’s Wembley party have had distractions to their build-up to Saturday – but whether either were of the unwanted variety is open to question.
