James Unsure On England's Keeper Choice - But Midfielder Makes The Cut

David James says well-organised England can win the World Cup – but he is still not sure if he will be in the starting line-up. The Pompey keeper played the first half of the unconvincing 2-1 win over Japan and speaking afterwards he was non-committal about his chances of being Fabio Capello’s No1 in South Africa. It came as another Pompey player’s place in his nation’s ....

Pompey Issue A Warning To Rivals Over Player Sales

Clubs sniffing around some of the many Pompey players up for sale have been told: Don’t try to see us off. The Blues are desperate to rake in some cash, but that’s leading to clubs and agents trying to do deals for top names which do not come anywhere near Pompey’s valuation. Nadir Belhadj and Prince Boateng are top of the list of those likely to go – at the right ....

Cotterill Cools Pompey Job Talk

Steve Cotterill says talk of him becoming Pompey’s next manager is premature. The contender to succeed Avram Grant says he needs to finish severing ties with Notts County before deciding on his next job.

If Pompey Creditors Are Happy, Season-ticket Holders Will Be Happier

Pompey are confident slow season-ticket sales will pick up once the club’s financial future becomes clearer in the next few weeks. Fewer than 1,000 of last season’s 11,000-plus holders have renewed so far but the club are hopeful many more will follow suit once the creditors’ voluntary agreement – which will put Pompey on a much firmer footing – is in place. And the ....

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

Pompey’s administrators say getting the club back on an even keel is more important than finding a new manager. Andrew Andronikou says finalising plans for the creditors’ voluntary agreement is the number one priorty – and finding Avram Grant’s successor can come after that. The coaching team will be asked to take the reins for now, fuelling speculation Paul Groves will ....

Should James The Keeper Be James The Boss, Or Something Less, At Pompey?

David James has confirmed he is interested in going into coaching and management – but whether Pompey, 2010-11, should be the first such job on his CV is up for debate. Administrator Andrew Andronikou says he does not know if James is ready to be Pompey’s next manager – though some believe Andronikou should be sorting out the finances rather than football matters – and ....

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? The men running Pompey until a new owner comes in have indicated wages of £10,000 a week will be about the most anyone can expect to earn next season. Whether that will be enough to prevent Kanu ....

Should They Stay Or Should They Go? Pompey Player Futures Are Decided

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. Grant has effectively given Pompey a deadline of the end of this week to go some way to sorting out their future to convince him to stay as manager, as many want him to do. 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. The Pompey captain said losing his third final 1-0 hurt, but the team could at least look back on a game in which they pushed Chelsea all the way. Now James – reported to be in with a chance of a new contract offer at Fratton – is wondering what comes next in the ....

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. The class of the 27000 Portsmouth fans that went en masse to Wembley yesterday shone through, and the powers that be, while certainly not embarassed by their lack of action this season, will certainly have noted ....

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

It is a fairytale – and one Avram Grant doesn’t believe. But the man who has won so many Pompey hearts and minds in a few short months will soon realise that leading this team to the Cup final after they have been written off and shot at by so many is no far-fetched story. It’s reality – and he’s made it so. Grant has spent months telling the Premier League they ....

Cup Final Build-up: James Reflects, Rival Recovers

David James looked ahead to Wembley and rejected suggestions his time at Pompey had been ‘turbulent’ – preferring instead to call it effervescent.

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.

But for Avram Grant, ....

It's 266 And Out For Pompey - But Hopefully No-one Will Be Out For Wembley

  The 266th game, and for now the final one, of Pompey’s Premier League era – or should that be their first Premier League era, takes them into low-key action at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.
