So much for Jordan staying...

So much for Jordan staying...

The understanding that Joe Jordan had 'shaken hands on an agreement' to stay with Pompey has proved premature, as Pompey have officially confirmed that he has left the club!

What a massive, massive blow this is - losing his experience, which would have proved vital to Tony Adams, is another devastating development.

This is a statement from the Pompey Site...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

==========

JORDAN LEAVES POMPEY

Joe Jordan has parted company with Portsmouth Football Club.

It ends the 56-year-old Scot's four-year spell as a coach at Fratton Park.

Jordan joined Pompey in the summer of 2004 as one of Harry Redknapp's coaches and briefly had a spell as caretaker manager.

Jordan, a former Manchester United, AC Milan and Leeds striker, played in three World Cups for Scotland, before managing Bristol City, Stoke and Hearts.

Portsmouth Football Club would like to thank Joe for his significant contribution during four successful years at Fratton Park and wish him well for the future.

Blues manager Tony Adams is hoping to unveil his new team of coaching staff next week.

Gutted and very sad to see Joe go. Good luck to him and he must have his reasons which we will probably never know.

yep, im gutted to see him leave - was unsure, but thought that he would stay...
why did he leave? angry not to get the job? i dont think so... disappointed that adams was looking elsewhere for coaching staff? maybe... overall who knows - as you say dave we might never know...
rumours already building that he will join HR at spurs. i hope not, and would like to think that this isnt why he left as he was the only one not to last time.

A further example of the Hot Air that comes out of Fratton Park and I wish Joe good luck with his new role. It really is true that you can never believe a word Gaydamak and Storrie say!

Sad to see JJ go. Another nail in the ... Bl00dy hope he going to Spurs as that would only add to the pain, let alone his influence over a few of our players. B0ll0x.

It was obvious that Jordan was not going to feature, otherwise he would have been confirmed as Adams assistant initially. Also all of the talk of other appointments to the coaching staff left him with no worthwhile position to occupy.

ok, chances are jordan has gone because he wasnt wanted by adams - but, and this is just a thought, has anyone actually stopped to think that maybe, just maybe he has gone because 'he wanted to go?' maybe adams genuinely has been doing all he could to convince him to stay but he didnt want to...

I don't care if he went because he wanted to go, or didn't want to go, was pushed, wasn't pushed. Truth is he's gone!!! He won't be the only one, I expect other coaches and players to follow. Morale must be at a long time low...You lot can paint a rosey picture, truth is life at Fratton stinks at the moment
