has sven been sack? cannot see anything anywhere... i think that is meant to say recently sacked citeh manager or could be sacked mexico manager...

Not sacked yet but hold your breath as I believe it's imminent. That also doesn't mean he comes straight to Pompey, however the Brian Kidd appointment is interesting and could cause some form of lure for the Swede.

Roy Keene, ex-superstar player who can't manage!!!! Havn't we just had one of them. Can you imagine Keene screaming his head off in the dressing room, his so called man-management !!! I don't think so.

How come pompey prefer a manager, that don't stop to lose ,as a manager of a fine soccer state like mexico(lately 2-0 lost against the U.S) on the acount of a manager, that just lead Chelsea to it first ever CL final(something that even great mourinho didn't succeed to do). so what if Eriksson is more famous than Grant? so what if Chelsea fans cried after Grant came on the expense of Mourinho. Grant will give it heart and ability to make from pompey a top notch team, while Eriksson will see it as a bus station. pompey will go down or not, not that important.... we always can find another mexico. (Well, that's my personal point of view, it's clearly that i'm support grant and i do admit it, as my sayings and my heart are equal).

Primus more likely than Steve Bruce!
12/02/2009 12:35:00
BTW - Eriksson, is a very nice person, by my point of view.
12/02/2009 12:36:00
Do you know, i've got to the point that i'm so totally bewildered i don't know what to think. Am i helpful or what ????

For what it's worth..both Eriksson and Grant don't have enough charisma between them to motivate and galvanise a team. It's going to be down to Kidd if he stays with us..
12/02/2009 12:45:00
Charisma or not - If we are talking businss - Grant led Chelsea to it first CL final, beat arsenal, liverpool and manchester(in their best form), was one of the best managers in eurpe as a whole last year. We all know what scolari do with the same team+Deco. / While erikkson led mexico in it campaign to lose against honduras, jamaica and lately the US, teams that mexico should have beat. so now pompey will be the next station, for a manager that lead mexico to failure on the expense of a manager that lead chelsea to it best ever achievement. and why? because he is nicer? i really don't understand it.

I think you miss my point alonrose. Both Eriksson and Grant are technical managers not motivators. Maybe in the case of Eriksson the team would be motivated more because of his stature in the world of football, but both depend on the second man to put their thinking into action. They are not hands on man managers.

Worthy of a new deal?

So, Danny Rose, as we know, isn't going to play again this season. As things stand this would mean he'll not pull on a Pompey shirt again as his contract expires in the summer.

Sickening Rotherham winner

Losing on Saturday was bad enough, the fact this was an added time winner more so. The cherry on the cake was the fact Rotherham's goal came from ex-Pompey full back Joe Mattock.
