Coventry in for Little

Coventry in for Little

I would not have thought that 'reports' that Glen Little will be leaving Pompey this summer are in the least bit surprising are they?

The writing was well and truly on the wall for the guy when he was allowed to see out the final months of the current season on loan with his former club Reading, although they decided against re-signing him on a permanent basis and he returned to Fratton to see out the final months of his contract.

Today it is said that Coventry are looking to secure his services, which they will do on a free as he will be released at the end of his contract, either at the end of this month or the next.

Injuries were not kind to Little during his time with Pompey, but even then in all honesty this move probably came several years too late for him.

Nevertheless I will wish him all the best for the future, at least he came in with the right attitude and gave it a go, some might say his best - unfortunately this best just was not quite good enough.

Forgot about him! Yeah let him go, was a strange signing to say the very least, but good luck to him because he did a job when he did play, particularly against Milan!

Had a reasonable game against Milan, but that was it. Good luck to the guy

A gamble when we took him on. Was a good squad player to have had he been fit. Certainly not in our future plans, we wish him well in the fizzy pop league.

Good luck, mate. You'll be able to tell the grandkids about AC Milan where you certainly didn't let anyone down

Brought in as a quick fix on the right, but always gave his best when he got a chance, good luck to him.

I thought he went back to Reading in the January transfer window? Or was I hallucinating?

Yeah, he was brought in to get balls across in the days that we were not playing the Hart system. Good, honest, hard working player though, but not Premier League now.

On this day in history...30th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 30th May.

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!
