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.

Thats the end of his pompey career he will go to sign for reading in the summer as contract is up !! good player but he is always on the treatment table. Just been reading the papers and saw jamies dad is on about bring glen johnson , david james and peter crouch to the lane hope this dont happen we need these players.

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...

we will be on MOTD next season as we are not going down - have the faith mate, as for seeing him on it, i would not mind if we did as i do quite like reading and it is another 'localish' game.

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.

A player brought in on a free to add to the squad, shame it didn't work. We wish him well at Reading.

Good luck Glen. Will never forget the fool he made Kaka look when we played Milan. All Kaka could do was turn and kick him!!

Agreed, a far better player than most led you to believe. My favorite moment of the season Dave, when he made Kaka look stupid; Oh how we laughed...

surprised you signed him in the first place to be honest!

ummm, contary to opinion here, I feel Glen is not of the quality needed, fit or otherwise, not good enough, not even for a squad place. Saw him at Havant pre season, the lad cant even run. I'm with merlin, surprised we took him in the first place!

We took him cos he was available and can cross a ball but he hasn't got the pace. Nice bloke though, not at all egotistical. If he can get first team football with Reading good luck to him.

One of our stranger signings, I think. Like 4me, I saw him pre season and wondered why he had joined us. TBH, I'm still wondering.

i will carry on fighting for little, still think he was better than people think but as said signed too late in his career and when he was he was not used enough to show what he could do - an impact sub might have been his best use, of course injuries did not help...

Some players are just very unlucky with injuries and he's one of them. When you also aren't first choice at your club, it makes it very difficult to push your way through. Because of this, he hasn't had much chance to shine at Pompey, so I for one, still don't know how good he is - or not. Hope it works out better for him back at Reading.

Good player. Beckham showed you don't need speed down the flanks. I can only see that injury has stopped him at Pompey.
