'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Come on, which one is it!

Totally unbelievable - just a couple of days back The Mirror was saying that Glen Johnson was ready to commit his future to Pompey, yet today they run an article totally against that titled 'Johnson to quit Pompey'...

They now 'claim' that he feels 'he needs to be playing in the Champions League on a regular basis to secure his England prospects, which makes Chelsea and Liverpool favourites to sign him.'

Absolute bull, to guarantee his world cup place Johnson needs to be playing regular 1st team football, he knows this as well as we do, and also as well as The Mirror does!

There was I daring to possibly have a little more 'respect' for The Mirror, the fact that they have been able to totally go against what they said a matter of days ago proves that all the red tops are as bad as each other, and there are no exception - as we suspected all along...

Rug, I still think Glen will go before the start of next season and if we can get anything like 15M for him then it's good business. This certainly does not mean I'd like him to leave! Maybe the deal with the good doctor is that he has bought the club on the cheap but that Sascha can reduce his losses by selling the likes of Johnson and Crouch?

that is what it is tony, exactly what you said - the point is that it totally, without a doubt shows the mirror, and to be fair the media, for what they are, a bunch of liars! it wouldnt have been so bad had it been the sun saying he would stay then mirror saying he would go, but for the same paper to say he will stay and then go within days is unbelievable...

Rug, do you really think it is the papers, most people accept it's the player who decides, cast your mind back it was a might but might not, not really sure but there again, affair to get him here. The player wants champions league footy and who can blame him, but he obviously worried about a repeat of his Chelsea nightmare.

Unless Storrie is doing the dealing, who else is?? I understand that GJ has a get out clause if price goes over 15M, so unless the offers are in excess of that now, or unless we need the money he ain't going anywhere. I reckon a new Manager has been appointed and targets have been identified as to whom he wants to keep and those he will let go. Why would our top scorer and England Striker even be allowed to talk to other teams, again unless we need money or just perhaps we have someone better in line to come in as our No1 striker.

Back in january you could read in the mirror "pompey have to sell stars" then turn over the page & you could read "pompey to bid 8mill for striker",don't their sports writers talk to each other or even the editor?
