Deal or no deal? Richard Duffy...

Deal or no deal? Richard Duffy...

So, we have some 15 players out of contract in the summer (or seeing their loans with Pompey end) it is almost time to decide who deserves a new contract and who does not deserve the drippings from my nose, well ours noses!

I was going to look at them all together, but I think I will do them one at a time... Simple question, and as the bearded one would say, 'deal or no deal?'

Richard Duffy

Waste of space - apparently happy to have virtually wasted the best part of 5-years of his career picking up the wages he could and playing a few games out on loan here and there.

He is doing something that most would kill to do, and he just does not seem as though he can be arsed!

Mincing around on the Wembley turf after we had won the FA cup as basking in the glory of the victory parade was an absolute joke, considering he was nowhere near playing even the remotest part in this triumph.

Out on loan with Millwall and apparently already told he will not be invited back... Good!

Deal or no deal? No deal.

A big, fat and resounding no two ways about it, not any thought needed no deal! Oh yea, with little or no thanks to him either!

These are my thoughts, what about yours? As always please share them below...

NO DEAL. Was a promising young talent, but my head says no deal - he'll never be good enough to get into our first team.

For some reason he has never lived up to or been allowed to live up to his potential. NO deal for his sake and let him find a club - plenty have wanted him on loan.

PFCGino, bluedr, stfc ballboy and eastneydave, no surprises you have made comments you have and agree with the thoughts each contain - although all basically the same 'get rid, not good enough' you each make slightly different points as to why, and points i agree with...
tbh i think a fair few more will also share these thoughts!

pompeym@, trust me i had to 'pad it out' a bit, but to be fair each player deserves his own 'deal or no deal' segment - even tho some will be much easier to discuss and decide upon than others...

He's done himself no favours over the years. When he first got noticed i really thought he had something. I think attitude is one of his big let downs so i'm afraid to say no deal.
