Well, like it or not the news seems to suggest that Tony Adams has been sacked as manager of Pompey. We are still awaiting official confirmation of the fact but to be honest so many news streams are reporting it, it surely has to be true.
So putting aside your thoughts on whether he should have gone or not who do you see has his successor?
Some names are already being banded around - Let's examine a few
Entitled 'The man from the BBC' when he was last at the club as all he offered was a method on how to collect the Balls, Bibs and Cones after a training session. A short stop Chelsea manager since then but given the Israeli connections surely must be a favourite.
Walked out on Sunderland earlier in the season, could this be the challenge he needs to re-establish himself as a Premiership manager ?
Like Keane, still desperate to prove himself as a top flight manager - Would we give him a second chance ?
Curbs left Charlton for West Ham and his career took a nose dive. He needs to get back into the game PDQ and a Pompey team needing stability is a great vehicle for him, surely!
He did it with Newcastle (first time around) and Fulham and let's be honest he'd inspire a woodworm to bore through metal. Will our squad respond to his 'I'd fucking love it if we beat them' battle cries?
Would boring Steve leave boring Reading for a place in the Premiership? Given Reading's position right now I very much doubt it
Jamie's Dad/Sandra's Husband/ Louise's Father-in-law. Frank's Uncle
Nah.. he wouldn`t would he ?
Two years ago he was the best manager outside the Premiership. Now he is a sacked Watford manager. Could Boothroyd make a return ?
The Croatian coach has made no secret of his desire to manage in England - Could he see Pompey as a stepping stone to greater things?
I jest not. It has not gone well in Mexico for Sven and I, having stayed n the country for a while can tell you, it is not the place to be if you are not liked. He is a big name and big names attract investors - If Sadha is selling soon Sven is a name that potential buyers will recognise.
Well there you have it, my quick five minute run down on who the next King may be - I`m sure to have forgotten somebody obvious but such is life.
Who do you think will come to Pompey ?
Who do you want to come to Pompey ?
Your guess is as good as mine, but I reckon with Adams will go Metgod, leaving only Paul Hart or David Coles to take charge. Should we go for the internal cheap option again?
Nah.. I`ll bet a tenner than the new Pompey bosses first game will be against a former club.
Step forward. Ummm.. well ..err.. umm. I think.. err.. umm.. Well.. errr. Manchester City .. err… well a Pompey win… was err … well a …good errr result, err I think.. Has anybody seen Nancy ?
