Sven shows interest .. Well almost

Sven shows interest .. Well almost

Yes Ladies and Gents as I predicted when a certain Mr Adams left Sven Goran Eriksson has (at last) shown his hand with regard to taking the managers hot-seat at Pompey

Well actually he hasn't but Athole Still the former England managers agent has been exclusively quoted on Setanta.com as saying, in relation to the Pompey job..

"He is looking forward to getting back into club management and wants to be back in The Premier League.
"It's a club with money and a club that looks like it will have ambition, which is very important to any top manager.
"Of course it would be a club that interests him."

As we know Eriksson has long been associated with taking over at Fratton and no sooner had it emerged that we have a new owner then he is in the frame again.

Personally, as I have gone on record as stating before, I would welcome Sven with open arms. I think he has all the attributes we need both to stabilise and move forward and it seems the bookies agree as he has immediately shot towards the top of their favourites list.

But enough of my ramblings what do you guys think?

Is Sven the answer, or would you prefer Bilic or Matinez, Maradonna or Strachan or should we stick with Paul Hart

So many good mangers to choose from. If eriksson took over i wouldnt be dissapointed he has a good track record at club management. I personally wouldnt mind Bilic , Martinez, Maradonna all young passionate and possibly would attract some good gems to our club.Like i said time and time again anyone good apart from PAUL HART

its gonna be good for Pompey to get a new manager like Sven quickly to set up a new team in the summer and make his summer shoppin list earlier before other settled clubs do their business

I think Sven would be an excellent choice, amongst others, he is a superb club manager. He did a great job at city his face just didn't fit.

If we brought sven in, I would be very very confident about next season, and our ambition for the future.

Yep bring it on. As we move up the ladder of footie, we need a manager that can cope with it. Any more deluded fans out there how think Hart should get the job, smell the coffee, or is oil or camel ****, whatever. Bring in Sven & players take notice of us. Time to buy chix a beer!

I'll have that beer if it comes off Matt ;) Also, given Sven's previous job as Coach of Mexico he is well placed to understand what talent lies in South America.. Something that Dr Dosh is keen to exploit is he not. My only worry is that the new owner might plump for stability and actually keep Hart in place... nah he wouldn't .. would he ?

Chix in his element. As SGE's agent he has been dying to write this article for months!! Sven with Kidd as no2 would suit mosty and bring the top players flooding in. As to buying Chix a beer Matt with his fees collected he should buy us a pub!!

lol Dave... But just think fellas, if Sven were to come to Pompey he might sign some players he's signed before .. Elano, Petrov, Corluka, Geovanni .. and a certain Zimbabwean national team captain called Benjani now wouldn't that be good

Vital View - League 2, 14th January 2017

Doncaster retained a healthy lead at the top ahead of Plymouth and Carlisle. Cheltenham moved above Notts County with only Newport below them in the Football League now.

Video - Pompey 2-1 Leyton Orient

Conor Chaplin made up for missing a penalty - the third spot kick in a row I think we've missed isn't it? - with a brace as Pompey deservedly saw off Leyton Orient 2-1 at Fratton Park.
