Duffy joins Millwall!

Woo hoo, the Pompey Site and the Millwall one are both reporting that Richard Duffy has finally left to join Millwall.

The Londoners say it is a loan until the end of the season, Pompey mention nothing about length or fee - just that he has gone.

When the season ends, so will his contract so he will then finally be free to leave Pompey for good!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

The question is - is he any good?
horseworrier
Don't know? No one's ever seen him play!...We call him Marie Celeste!
pentonpompey
HALLILOUYA lol
pompeym@
Two performances in FIVE years tells the story - but he looked useful when I have watched Wales.
eastneydave
oh well, dont think nyone really cares, he never preally played for us so wont be missed.
MFFP
He would have been due a testimonial soon too!! No good luck Richard don't spend too long telling everyone how badly you were treated at Pompey.
eastneydave
Do you know? If i lived to be 120, I will NEVER understand why we kept him for 5 minutes let alone 5 bloody years
pentonpompey
Ah well, nice to have known you and have fun at the Den
hammersmithblue
I saw him play once and took a picture to prove it!!
UKTony
hooray!
SUAC51
Keep him, he is destined not to play for us, Goodness knows what we saw in him.
Owenspompey
Chix is gonna be gutted, he was always a fan of Duffy, infact I think he suffered from Duffy-mania!
pompey4me
Was he one of Redknarps?
Et_tu_Pompeii
Yes, get in. Goodbye Brad Pitt.

P4me ... Gutted .. I am absolutely distraught .. My whole world have fallen in ..never mind Dos Santa Claus or whever he is called .. We have just relinquished one of the hottest properties on our books .. This guys is class and we've loan him to Millwall .. Not disrepect Millwall fans but I would have though at least on of the big 4 would have come in for him.. I'm gonna dig into my dusty files just to prove to everybody what we have let go...
Chix
Right I'm back... This is the report I have from when he signed for us


Pompey agree terms with Duffy
EXCLUSIVE
Portsmouth are continuing to build for the future after agreeing terms with Swansea City's young Welsh defender Richard Duffy. The 18-year-old versatile starlet, who can also operate in midfield or attack, has made 18 league appearances for The Swans this term while also featuring in the FA Cup. Although the two clubs are yet to agree a fee for Duffy, the teenager has thanked the Welsh side for their part in enabling him to join the Premiership club. "Richard is delighted to agree personal terms with Portsmouth," said his agents Grass Roots Management to skysports.com. "He feels that it is a fantastic opportunity to further his career and one that he could not turn down. "Richard would like to thank Swansea for giving him the opportunity to talk to Portsmouth, especially chairman Huw Jenkins, who have been very understanding and supportive." Pompey boss Harry Redknapp is known for his wheeling and dealing in the transfer market and it appears the South Coast side have a star for the future.

You see now what we have let go ?
What's going to happen to our future now?
I seriously think, without Duffy we are sunk without a trace


Oh well at least we managed to hang onto Djimi Traore.. [Edited by hickin]
Chix
welcome back chix!! lol agree, we did keep traore, dont really mind losing duffy though.
MFFP
See, the media were right! Look at that for a destructive fire sale!
Tantona
He was full of potential that only simmered to the surface when he played in the championship. At the time of purchase it seemed a good deal. Remember Matty Taylor came from a similar situation!
storagematt
I thought he played for Wales & was only released to us when they didn't need him.

Defender Richard Duffy will return to Portsmouth from Coventry at the end of the season after signing a new deal. The 20-year-old's current contract with the Premiership side was set to expire and he had been on loan at Coventry. "Duffy will be going back at the end of the season because he's signed a new contract," Sky Blues boss Micky Adams told the Coventry Evening Telegraph. "He got a new and exclusive deal about a month ago. I am sure it will be nice playing in their reserves." Just pulled this off of the three year old report on the BBC. Hilarious.

I love it when we look back at all the things that have been said about a player.. Maybe we could make this a feature.. first up Utaka.. now his signing story is hillarious 18 months on.. although I still do habour (maybe foolishly) the wish that one day ..just one day he'll turn into the player we expected ..
Chix
Sandra's husband thought he was getting a Matty Taylor for the right hand side.
stillthewhizz
Chix, I remember all of the exciting surrounding Utaka and Nugget - a double signing. Both have turned out to be complete toilet, although we pin all our hopes on Nugget because he's the only player who looks like he gives a toss. Thank god we'll be ridding the dead wood this summer.
stillthewhizz
Chix I agree with that idea completely. Perhaps we could branch out to some of the other players that have been signed by other clubs in the past that have hilarious back stories (Ali Dia anyone?)
pompeywa
bye ... whoever you were!
pompey--pessimist
Ali Dia one of Graeme Souness' and Saints finer moments... (lol) as if you'd believe an agent !!
Chix
haha good thoughts chix....
