Little returns to Reading

Little returns to Reading

Glen Little has played his last game for Pompey, what with his contract expiring in the summer and unlikely to be renewed, as he has returned to Reading on loan for the rest of the season.

His chances have been limited since he arrived due mostly to injuries and of course others being ahead of him in the pecking order.

I still say that the guy is better than a lot of people give him credit but he is just so immobile that this makes him look far less effective than he actually is - the constant injuries he picks up also do not help either do they. In all honesty he came to Pompey a couple of years too late - he was a player that Jamie's Dad had always wanted, and as he did with Andy 'the mercenary' Cole he eventually got the player, but probably too late in the career...

Little returning to Reading is not a surprise at all as from the minute we signed him it was said that Steve Coppell would welcome him back at Reading on loan, or permanently, at any time and this wish has been granted. I say good luck to the guy and I wish him and Reading well for the rest of the season.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

i liked the guy, as i said, better than credited for but too injury prone and signed too late in his career tbh...
as for the jamo, johnson and crouchy thoughts - the papers say alot, that talk is nothing new. 'when' we stay up there will be no need for those players to be sold, and even less need to sell to 'him'. just as the paper write it, remember it does not make it anywhere near true...

i think its a shame ... we clearly had issues on the right before signing pennant and i think he was good at crossing. i think hes got a good character and certainly not a mercenary. reading fans will be delighted and hope he does a good job for them. as for relegation ... im going to sit on the fence here but falling towards the staying up ... still maintain there are at least 3 teams that are worse than us even in current form, its just whether we can get a bit of lady luck. my three to go down are wba, hull and boro.

Evans - Right back or right midfield?

Drew Talbot and Adam Buxton are fit but Gareth Evans continues to fill in at right back. Should this change? If so where would it leave the battle between Evans and Carl Baker?
