Aubey is here to stay...

Aubey is here to stay...

...well that is his aim anyway.

Finally we got to see Lucien Aubey in action for Pompey at the weekend - albeit it in unfortunate circumstances for Noe Pamarot who he replaced after his fellow Frenchman was injured.

Aubey came in and for the next hour or so did a good job on his debut to become one of the plus points from an otherwise disappointing performance overall in all honesty.

He enjoyed it as he has told the Pompey site, and now he is looking to play more as he aims to extend this stay beyond the end of the season: 'it was my first match so there was a lot of pressure. But I'm happy with how things went, especially against a side like Bolton who are strong and play long ball, long ball, long ball.

'The Premier League is very different to French football - quicker and more physical, which I like.

'I'm glad to be playing because I want to stay here for a long time. I didn't sign here to go back to France in the summer. A lot of teams want me there, but I wanted to play for Portsmouth.

'We've got a big, big manager here and I want to learn from him. It's why every time he gives me a chance, I want to impress.

'I'm happy to play and show what I can do. But I know I can give a lot more.

'I'm not at my maximum yet because before the Bolton game I had not played for a few weeks. But if I have the luck to play a lot of matches I'll be at that level in a month. I'll work and work and work to get there'.

Well he is certainly saying all the right things isn't he!

As said the early signs were impressive, and with Pamarot likely to be sidelined for a while Aubey will be battling with Hermann Hreidarsson to play at left back - that would be a tough call to make, but it would seem pointless bringing the fella in on loan not to play him...

I would expect him to get a run in the side now, so it is up to him to take this - if he does then I would not expect him to be returning to France this summer, apart from a trip to complete the formalities of a permanent move here.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

We certainly needed him on Saturday. Competition with HH ain't a bad thing either. Hope Noe has a speedy recovery.

pompey need to look foward at left back as hermans not getting any younger and pamarot never fully looks comfortable there lets hope he gets a run in the side to see what he can do

Seemed to be very highly thought of in France so give him a run. We used to be overloaded with left footed players now the supply seems to have dried up.

With Pamarot and Distan out we need to him to cover and fill in especially when Herman is underachieving. Its good to get some youth into that defensive line, we need to look to the future a bit.

pfc4life - thanks for your analysis of Pamarot. 'Rubbish'.

I can't say i've seen Aubey play properly yet so i'll reserve judgement but I do like Pamarot as a squad player. Herman is pretty good when he gets a lengthy run in the team but like Sol he's is getting exposed one too many times.

@ pfc4life: Lol, you donk. Pamarot rubbish? Despite his huge size and strength he's really light on his feet and a good footballer. Despite being out of postion at LB there aren't many that get round him down the flank and his is OK going forward to support attacks, overlapping or cutting inside. Aubey looked solid but engage your brain first huh.
