Baros will not be returning to Fratton?

Baros will not be returning to Fratton?

This will probably come as no surprise to many, and this has seemed likely for some time now but it appears that Milan Baros will not be returning to Pompey next season - well that is if you believe setanta sports...

We were given first option to sign him after his loan move but no mention of us is given by Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas, who it is claimed has admitted that he is 'on the market', telling Le Progres: 'two German clubs contacted us and would be interested in his signing.

'He is on the market, but the option to have three strikers next year can be interesting.'

As said before, I thought the guy worked really hard - most of the time - and his movement was excellent, with him often proving an ideal foil for Jermain Defoe - the problem was he never, ever looked like scoring! So with the amount we would probably have to payout for him I have never expected him to sign to be honest...

He is starting tonight for the Czech's, so maybe he can turn a few heads against the Portuguese? I fancy he will do well in a Czech win but I am often wrong!

Maybe he still will return next season, but I cannot see it to be honest - can you?

Nope, and although he ran and ran for us, I don't think we will miss him come the start of the season.

Can't see him coming back but i feel he was a little unlucky with us, his work rate was excellent, his running off the ball was superb he just needed one to get him going, had he got going i think he'd have been back but Harry will probably look elsewhere now.

I think his problem has always been that he cannot look up when he has the ball. He always looks at his feet so must have no idea where he is running! lol

good points: he ran a lot. Bad points: he fell over a lot. he fouled a lot. he handballed a lot. he missed a lot. i think the bad points outwieghed the good ones there - and if we want someone to do the running,we have nugent, and olic for croatia was very impressive...

Never the player he was & no surprise. We thank Milan for the 'assist' which led the goal in the semi but other than that noty much else. We have moved up alevel & sadly he has moved down a few.

he reminds me of one of those crazed terriers which go mental when someone rings the doorbell. I suppose that's what the sensible man would call a good work rate.

I liked him myself, I'd have liked (for the right money) to have signed him.

I think this is a good decision by Harry, we need a 20 goal a season striker and Baros is not that.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.

Interest in Plymouth midfielder? Unfortunately not

Apparently, having stolen the League Two title from Plymouth, we'll not be taking the Pilgrims' best player, ex-Celtic midfielder Carey, currently out-of-contract at Home Park.
