Pompey *Exclusive*


Pompey Exclusive

I have to start by saying that this is not defiantly true however my source in Portsmouth (who I went to university with) is yet to let me down so my guess is that itís true but only time will tell.

Yesterday Peter Storrie confirmed that all contract talks where on hold, 'But I think we're in with a shout of staying up and hopefully I can push discussions back until April.'

This includes Harry Redknapp who signed a contract until the end of the season. My source has told me that Milan and Gaydamak have both agreed with Harry that he will get a three year contract if he keeps Portsmouth in the Premiership. (With conditions; further down.)

There is (apparently) a disagreement between Milan and Gaydamak over the contract of Harry Redknapp if (heaven forbid) Portsmouth are relegated. Milan would want Harry to stay even if we were relegated claming he has the experience to take us back up. However, Gaydamak is unhappy claiming that he has spent too much money for Portsmouth to be relegated.

It is rumoured that Gaydamak would bring in an up and coming manager possible Adrian Boothroyd or Martin Allen. My source isnít sure who would get the final say.

I think that Milan would because he is still the chairmen. I can see disaster though, Gaydamak walks! The players bought in January are his. What would happen then?

Harry has apparently been told (as I said earlier) that he will get a three year contract on a million pound a year! He has also been told that Jamie Redknapp will be aloud to come in as assistant manager. He would also be given a further ten million to bring in enough quality to push for Europe. Players would include Lee Trundle.

My source has also told me that Milan has told Gaydamak that he wonít walk until 2009! This is a lot longer than thought but then again the stadium is also taking longer than thought.

I have also been informed that Newcastle are interested in signing Gary OíNeil in a possible cash and swap deal (Which would see the return of Amdy Faye, possible on loan if we were relegated.)

Thatís the end of the exclusive as I said at the start it isnít defiantly true but I trust my source and my reaction to what I was told is; this could be brilliant if we stay up and a disaster if we go down.

Les, firstly I think this has been extremely well constructed and put together particulary well...congratulations for the effort and the feedback. Much of what you say I endorse. It seems we have a number of endless week-ends, worn down finger nails, wondering if we meet the Mandaric-Gaydamak agenda/criteria for 2006/2007. The one person I feel sorry for is Sir Harry if we go down. Under Gaydamak he possibly would not be considered....that is to say that once again we create disharmony within the club, and further disrupt a club that has had enough turmoil to leave us all disenchanted. Gaydamak has a point, wouldn't you if you bought half a club for 15M and invested a further 12M and suddenly found yourself out of the top flight. Milan has to stay, not just because of the stadium issue and the promises, but because he is the guiding light for his new born wealthy apprentice, who one day will assume his role. Going down is not an option, Southampton will tell you that. Gaydamak must be eased into his control and desicion making. Yes he has rights, yet he still has to learn - the passion, the history, the fans, the heart that drives this famous club. He must learn to listen, some investments take time, owning a football club is a rollercoaster that doesn't always pay dividends. If he can cope with that he should be able to enjoy a decent tenure.If he is impatient, we can only fear the worst. He has money and power, now he needs wisdom.

Thanks Pompeygray! I would agree with everything there, my main argument to Gaydamak to keep Harry is that he is the most likely to keep the majority of players.
lmatthews
Dont dislike anything written on this site, however, all the info in the above article has been mentioned as "In my opinion this is what will happen", by various pundits on Sky and the Quay Sunday and Monday. Agree with Pompeygray, its well constructed, but as i read each line i can still hear it coming from Moodys mouth, McGlochlaen, Materface, Andy grey etc etc.
Terence
Well i can assure you that i didn't make it up out of nothing as i don't have sky and i live in London so can't listen to the Quay lol so thats me prity much coverd! I just reported what i was told.
lmatthews
Les, no personal critism intended. One of the things i like about this place is we can all agree to disagree. I dont doubt you were told, and who knows it could all be 100%, just found it funny that the views of the pundits echoed those of your informer. lol.
Terence
No offence taken i know most of it people have already probably thought most of the article, the reason its *exclusive* is because of the finer details i.e. when milan will leave and how much harry is going to be on etc
lmatthews
He'll be on More than you and I mate, thats for sure LOL. Personally i want him to stay either way too.
Terence
Common spurs b sorry pompey give the arse a stuffing on the 25th, good luck
huscarl
lol no im on 2 mill a year at this site alone!!
lmatthews
i dont no about beat them but we will atleast draw
lmatthews
At the end of the day it doesn't matter who is manager, who signs what contract the most important thing at present is this season and staying in the premiership. The last thing we need now is Journelists reporting this, that and the other unsettling our team.
nelson
Could be a temporary setback but this has been allowed in my survival calculations.
pompeygray
Pompeygrey, You sound like the Professor who had borrowed Perrins clip board and calculator. I just pray you have done your sums correct mate. We have faith
nelson
if we stay up everything is fine! In response to your comment nelson completly agree but if im told something like this i feel only fair that i tell you. I did make it clear that its not 100% def true.
lmatthews
Fully understand Les, If it's not you informing us fans then it will only be reported in the daily papers and blown all out of context. The papers would only get 25% of it true.
nelson
Yer! Good Good you knwo me nelson i've been positive since the second i started. This story can be taken two ways and if i was a player and i liked harry, knowing he would be there for two more years would provide a bigger insentive.
lmatthews
I agree with your comments Les. If we stay up then the first signature required should be Harry's. That will then give our players confidence to stay and be part of our teams progress
nelson
yer i think he shud stay if we go down because he will keep the majority of players there i.e. dejan said he would stay if harry did
lmatthews
We should treat the Arsenal game as a real Cup Tie. That way we give ourselves a shot at an upset, otherwise they may just be too good for us.
pompeygray
This is the biggest amount of misinformation I have ever read in one article. Your source must be your own imagination...
3899
we will see! Who do you support
lmatthews
hope harry keeps you guys up
vertigo_red
cheers
lmatthews
can't see go'n going to the toon, its a sideways step
paultsmouth
not if we go down it aint
lmatthews
i say we will beat them and harry wil stay next season no matter what. and then if we stay there he will go and if we go up he will stay
pompeyboy
i hope he stays
