Goalkeeping Legend Demands: Green Out James In For England

David James may be backing Robert Green to recover from his World Cup horror show – but Alan Knight is not.

Advertisement Knight said: 'It shows ....

Potential Boss Not Taking Pompey Job Seriously

As Pompey close in on their new manager, Gareth Southgate is not getting carried away by reports linking him with the job. Steve Cotterill and Brendan Rogers are both thought to be ahead of Southgate in the queue, and the ex-Middlesbrough doesn’t exactly sound excited at the idea of coming to Fratton.

Pompey Fans Demand: Get Jamo Back In England's Goal

Pompey fans are leading the calls for David James to be given back the England keeper’s jersey after Robert Green’s horrendous blunder let two points slip in their opening game against the USA. There are some doubts that James is 100 per cent fit but even an unfit James would have saved Clint Dempsey’s straightforward shot that somehow slipped through Green’s grasp just ....

Pompey's World Cup Connections Are Solid So Far

Aaron Mokoena got ‘Pompey’s World Cup campaign’ off to a solid if not a winning start – can Kanu, John Utaka and David James continue the trend on Saturday.

Why Creditors Hold Key To Pompey Adding To Squad

The importance of Pompey securing the creditors’ voluntary arrangement has become even clearer with news they are unlikely to be able to sign – or even re-sign – any players without it. The CVA will allow Pompey’s embargo on signings to be lifted – but if it is not in place, they could be prevented from adding to their thinning squad. As ever, the administrators ....

League Say They're In No Hurry To Punish Pompey

The taxman may be circling like a vulture but financially-stricken Pompey have at least had some good news from the Football League. They’ve been told they will not face a points deduction for being in administration at the start of the 2010-11 season. The league says its rules mean a club would be punished for administration only if it carried on into a second year. That means Pompey will ....

Fascinating Competition Ahead For Pompey Striker Roles

Marlon Harewood may have designs on leading the Pompey line next season, but he could well face competition from Kanu. Harewood is apparently interested in trying to revivea career which seems to have gone sideways, and anyone who expresses an interest in joining Pompey knowing the uncertainty surrounding the club is not to be sneezed at. Advertisement But it ....

Appointing Pompey's New Boss Is Nothing To Do With Me

Pompey’s administrator says it won’t be long before the club appoint a new manager – but insists: It’s nothing to do with me. Andrew Andronikou says finalizing the process of deciding on Avram Grant’s successor is now entirely down to new chief executive David Lampitt. Andronikou has bigger things on his mind – including reports that the taxman will not accept ....

Pompey Hero Is Aiming For A World Cup Final Fairytale

As Pompey fans have come to realise over the past four years, Kanu is not one to do things by halves. After all, it’s no coincidence that in seasons when his appearances have become fewer and farther between his goals have included strikes in an FA Cup semi-final and final and one against AC Milan in the UEFA Cup. So it should come as no surprise that, when asked how he sees the World Cup ....

Can Pompey Sell Star Duo Before World Cup Starts?

World Cup duo Nadir Belhadj and John Utaka could both be sold before the tournament begins as Pompey start to rake in the millions they need to raise from player sales this summer. Belhadj could be the first to follow Avram Grant to West Ham while Utaka is wanted by Sochaux and a couple of Middle Eastern clubs. The Blues may well have in their minds that of all players in World Cup squads, only ....

New Pompey Boss May Arrive Sooner Rather Than Later

David Lampitt is in a bit of a hurry to get Pompey’s new manager in place – and it looks like he may not wait until creditors agree on proposals which will set out the club’s future more clearly. The club’s new chief executive says there is nothing in the rulebook that means they must wait for the CVA to be put in place before appointing a successor to Avram ....

Midfielder Confident In Race To Make Pompey's Pre-season

Pompey’s longest-serving player is confident he will be fully fit for the start of the pre-season build-up to life in the Championship. Richard Hiughes has just had a hernia op after being troubled with the injury towards the end of the season and cruelly missing the Cup final because of it. He reckons he will be fine to join in as soon as Pompey’s squad – whoever that may ....

Pompey Cup Hero Now Looks Set To Join The Exodus

One of Pompey's FA Cup heroes who many fans thought may stay at Fratton Park looks set for the exit after all. Aaron Mokoena believes he has probably played his last game for the Blues, with offers expected after he captains South Africa at the World Cup to enable him to stay in the Premier League. He is one of a handful of last season's team who supporters felt could form the nucleus of a good ....

New World Cup Honour For Pompey Squad

Pompey will have two countries' captains at the World Cup after Kanu was, perhaps surprisingly, named as Nigeria’s skipper – an honour already bestowed on Aaron Mokoena for the hosts South Africa.

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 ....

The Coach Who's On Pompey's Contenders List - And The Coach Who's Not

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.

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.

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 ....
