Wilson not going on loan now...
When Marc Wilson came in to the side to star against Heerenveen last week, before the game many people were thinking 'who', afterwards they were thinking 'wow!'
As said before I have been 'name dropping' him for a while, and he lived up to expectations - so much so that Tony Adams revealed he was very close to the 1st team, but in order to get sharper and even closer he wanted him to go out on loan in the New Year.
However a week on and the Pompey manager has changed his mind - the Irish youngster has moved so much closer in this week that he will not now be loaned out and there is a good chance that he will be part of the 1st team as the season goes on!
Get him in I say, he is good enough no matter how young he is - and 21 is not exactly young is it. He might be inexperienced but we all have to start somewhere. The right side of midfield is a problem area, so get him in there. The fella can defend, he can attack and most importantly he can put in a fantastic ball on the left or right foot, he offered the kind of service that the strikers have been crying out for...
Primus still in Adams' plans
Our longest serving player Linvoy Primus is now back at the club following a loan spell with Charlton - he took part in his first training session since his return yesterday.
Many expected his future to be elsewhere but Adams maintains that he is still part of his plans and can still feature as he needs 'Portsmouth people who want to play for Portsmouth' - that appears to be our biggest problem at the moment, too many do not appear to actually 'want to play for Pompey!'
Apparently he is not fit enough to feature over Christmas, but as far as I am concerned if he is not fit now - as that was the point of his loan - he never will be. If he genuinely does have a future and will play for the club again then lets get him into the squad and the side sooner rather than later, could he do any worse than those currently in possession of the shirt...
Elliott closing in on a £2m move?
Marvin Elliott should not be a name that is new to Pompey fans as the Bristol City midfielder has been 'linked' to us several times over the past few years.
Well according to the Mirror today the 24-year-old is 'close' to agreeing a £2m deal.
I am not convinced by this at all to be honest. Plenty of names will be 'linked' as 'Lassana Diarra's replacement', so I suspect that he is just another 'pot shot' as one of them - the fact that we play City in the FA cup probably makes this another reason for an 'easy link'...
'If' we were paying £2m for him then 'if' we had it I would prefer we put a little extra to that and picked up someone more proven to be honest - and feel we could get someone like that is the shape of Gary O'Neil, Jimmy Bullard or even Edu.
Thoughts on all the above please guys as always...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
