To be fair, we know that the media are like a pack of jackals and they also most certainly kick you when you are down, they have/are doing this with us all the time, so collaring Niko Kranjcar into again 'reiterating his desire to leave Pompey in the summer' is not a surprise - that said given our current predicament did the Croatian really need to make any comment?
The fact that Kranjcar appears determined to leave in the summer, or so the media would have you believe, is not really a secret - and if he did I would not be in the least bit surprised - but there is a time and a place for these kind of thoughts. As we are a club without a manager and seemingly 'spiralling out of control' that needs 100% committed players, we do not really need to hear this type of talk do we...
No doubt, in typical media fashion they have rehashed what has been said to suit them, but he has done himself no favours by again even mentioning that he would like to move onto a 'bigger club', as honest as it might be, as this now gives people the ammunition to knock him with them able to accusing him of not giving his all as he knows he will move on anyway.
I like the guy, and do rate him but have also made no secret of my thoughts that if a good offer came in I would accept it no questions asked - but for now Niko, and every other player contracted to us for that matter who may well be having the same thoughts, lets just focus on the task in hand eh and ensure that we are dug out of the hole we are in - many of you may well want to move on, but remember the fans will still be here regardless so lets leave us with something positive too!
Of course we do have to be wary with what the media do tell us, and I know he was asked a question but it is simple really 'do not answer it'...
As far as the latest goes on a search for a new manager, as most of us probably know now the pressure has grown on Sven Goran Eriksson even more now after Mexico were beaten by American last night - he is now teetering on the brink, but should he fall, will he fall in Pompey's direction? Would we even want him to?
Well, the Swede is certainly now laying enough crumbs to make the seemingly impossible look more and more probable... He is a sly old fox as he says enough as to not risk his Mexican position, but also leaves the door open for a return to the premier league, quite possibly with Pompey...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
