Pamarot ready to fight!

Pamarot ready to fight!

It is being 'reported' that Noe Pamarot has rejected the chance of moving to Hull as he wants to stay with Pompey and fight for a 1st team place.

Hull are said to have been lining up a £2.6m offer for the Frenchman - who I believe is now in the final year of his contract - but in a refreshing stance in the modern game despite the fact that he is not getting any assurance from Harry Redknapp over his future he wants to stay a battle for a place... he will probably be sold next week then!

I would gladly see us keep him to be honest. I was not a fan of his when we first had him, nor was I keen when he returned a few years back, but he has grown on me and is now a player that we know can come in and do the job asked of him. His versatility also makes him a very worthwhile player to have in our squad.

He might have even more of a fight on his hands though should the 'reports' from The Quay be confirmed - the radio station is claiming that an offer has been put in for Spurs defender, and long term transfer target Younes Kaboul - although it is also said that Sunderland want him, and he will hold talks with them today...

It's good to see the majority of the team are prepared to stay and fight for their places. Even some of the fringe players who could have gone are now keen to stay and we now have some very talented youngsters to bring on for future seasons. It's amazing what a bit of success and silverware can do and the prospect of more this coming season is binding the whole of Pompey from the gatekeepers to the boss. With this enthusiasm I think we are in for another good year even if we don't win the cup again.

It might not be that cup we win fratton aussie but I think we are in line for some sort of silverware this year. I am still worried at the present time of our strength in depth with regard to wide positions and attacking midlfielders. a COUPLE OF INJURIES with all the extra games could be a problem at the moment IMO

Good on Noe!!! I know hes no world beater, but just the fact that he can play every position pretty well at the back makes him quite a rare player! when you need a bit of depth, hes a great player to have around!

I like Noe, he did very well before the injury at Bolton. We will need him as cover especially with all the extra games in Europe.

I have to admitt that I never rated him when he first moved accross from Spuds, but in the games he has played he has come in and given 100% and done very well. I will be very impressed if he decides to stay and fight.

as i said i was th same, didnt rate him when we first had him let alone when he returned, but he has won me over - would be very happy to see him stay, altho with redknapp now saying he needs to sell before he can buy he might not be 'quite' as happy...

Liked the look of him as a youngster, but he was too young and suffered for it. Wasn't overly impressed when he first came back but he shrugged of the boo boys and showed that he can do a good job anywhere at the back. Ok he's no Distin or Campbell in the middle and he's obviously not a natural Left or Right Back but he can do a very tidy job in any position, that for me makes him worth his place in the squad. It's like having 2 extra players on the bench when he's sub.

I really don't understand why this guy is not more highly rated. Seeing him play from afar (as us "colonials" have no chice but to do) I think he's one of the best utlility players we have (he can be slotted in pretty much anywhere back there and never seems to take a minute off). In my view, it's squad players like that which are the backbone of great teams and I hope we hang on to him for a while to come.

All you chaps say is true, but he is injury prone (hamstrings) and gets roasted by nimble quick players.

Agree Steve I think Noe provides good all round cover at the back and I'm pleased he's decided to stay and fight for his place even tough it's gonna be a tough fight. Pleased players want to stay if for the right reasons .. unlike Djimi who is sulking and not prepared to go anywhere unless he gets what he wants.. a French club!
