Music to my ears is the news that Harry Redknapp has said that he does not want anyone to leave Fratton this summer - hopefully these words will be listened to...
Redknapp has told The News that those thinking of leaving Pompey this summer should think twice, as with the amount of games we will be playing he is going to fully utilise his squad: 'we want a squad and we are going to need a squad.
'The players we want to bring in have to give us something different from the ones we already have.
'We are going to be playing a lot of games.
'With the UEFA Cup, we are going to be playing Saturday-Thursday-Sunday. It's a busy schedule.
'I'm not going to be able to ask all the lads to play three games in a week. There is no way someone like Sol Campbell is going to be able to do that all the time.
'So we need some players to come in and we need numbers.'
The News says 'the likes of Pedro Mendes, David Nugent, Sean Davis, Arnold Mvuemba and Martin Cranie are all said to be unsettled', so would be the players most likely to be seeking an exit this summer.
Peter Storrie basically echoed these thoughts, stressing the 'staying will be worth it' thoughts in particular.
A couple will inevitably go, even if the club do not want them to but keeping as many as we can will give us the continuity to carry on what we are building. Adding a few quality players to the squad too - but only if they are improvements on what we have - and we have the potential for an even better season this time round...
With the amount of games we will be playing this season utilising the squad to its fullest must be something we do, this is not always something Redknapp has done but he does not have a choice now. To be able to utilise this as much as possible with players that we already have at the club, players that we know the exact the capabilities of would be fantastic.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
