Peter Storrie has told The News that he was 'very disappointed' with comments attributed to Peter Crouch in the Sunday papers, where he was 'said' to have voiced his concerns about the direction we are taking as a club and the uncertainty surrounding so many players, not to mention not having a manager.
Storrie, whilst admitting that he suspected that comments were manipulated, has hit back: 'these are very disappointing comments because anybody in their right mind knows we are in a due diligence period and the due diligence period means the club are technically in limbo for a month while this goes on.
'We cannot finalise matters on the manager and we can't finalise matters on players we are lining up.
'All the players know this and I'm surprised. I think Peter must have been caught off-guard on these sort of comments.
'I'm sure when I speak to Peter he will tell me he didn't actually say it that way, they have been twisted around a little bit. But it's very disappointing.'
Like I said at the time, and of course as others had, it might have been better to have kept those thoughts in house - with some very disappointed at what was claimed - but he, like us also wants to know what is going on. Then again some might argue could the response not have also been kept in house?
I have little, or no doubt that comments were manipulated - afterall that is what the press do is it not?
At the same time I also have little doubt that Crouch does have concerns about our direction, I hope for a far brighter future than the one we appeared to be having but allowing our best player, Glen Johnson of course, to leave - even though I have expected this - at this particular time, and not further down the line this summer, puzzles me and will inevitably raise doubts.
So, 'we can't finalise matters on players we are lining up,' that is fair enough and I understand and appreciate that - yet, at this particular time as opposed to waiting, we can do this on matters of a player leaving...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
