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

We want it and some still think it will happen...

'I know, not think, Glen Johnson will decide to stay' and 'it is 50:50 that he will either stay or go to the bin dippers', not my vote, yours - although these findings from a couple of pompeyrug's recent polls are thoughts that I did agree with to begin with, on the 1st but did not necessarily agree with the 2nd to be honest, and to be fair nor would many others at this point in time I think.

So this is what these couple of recent polls asked, and found out...

  • What the poll asked - Do you think - not 'do you want' - Johnson will stay?

  • How you voted - Yep 73%, Nope 17%, Time will tell... 10%

    At the time I think these thoughts were fair enough, more than fair really, but after all this probably was last week sometime before the 'confirmation' that we would sell came from Peter Storrie.

  • What the poll asked - Where will Johnson go?

  • How you voted - Bin Dippers (Liverpool) 37%, Nowhere, he will decide to stay... 37%, Chelski 22%, Someone else 3%, Citeh 1%

    I think that these thoughts were more out of hope than expectation to be honest, as this was post Storrie's admission he 'could' and probably 'would' be sold.

    Whatever we have thought and/or hoped for an interesting article on setanta sports should put pay to this tonight?

    An eagle eyed bin dipper, these guys do not miss anything, pointed out to setanta something that just about confirms the fact that Johnson will, or at the very least is almost nailed on baring a failed medical, which will not happen, to be plying his trade at Anfield next season - click here...

    So, there we have it we have hoped and some refused to let this hope go but I think full acceptance that Johnson has played his last game for Pompey needs to be accepted now guys - we just await that official parading of him with the fat waiter when both are back from their holidays.

    PLAY UP POMPEY!

    Never really watched him play last season, but since pompey fans have so much faith in him and think his worth more then the 17Mill being mentioned in the press I think Rafa made a good signings.

    Well without wanting to be too dramatic "I'M GUTTED" and then some. I wish him all the best of coarse and thank him for all the pleasure he gave us, but.....well you know.

    sadley, liverpool seem to think the deal is done and dusted. on there oficial club shop ( http://store.liverpoolfc.tv/products/footballkit/awaykit/awayadultkit/official-lfc-adult-away-shirt-0910/pid-28328 ) - they are selling shirts with his name on (click "personalise", then scroll down... he's the one with no number...)

    also, on the latest poll, there was a late surge for "nowhere, he will stay"... opinions may be changing back...

    We can't really begin to compete with the big 4 in our current state. GJ will double/treble his wages & facilities we can only dream of. The money will go to Sasha & not on a replacement. Just have to hope Dr SAF will pay to replace. GJ has been a brilliant purchase by HR & GJ has served us well. We wish GJ all the best.

    If you said you can keep one player, For me it would have been Glen Guess that says it all, but I know he will go now.
    pompeyyong
    I think Liverpool should have a little more class and not start selling shirts till it is confirmed by both parties. Maybe that's just me being a tad petty.

    Yet another short sighted move for Pompey, unless they know that the takeover isn't likely to happen. At least by signing his new contract so recently it's pushed the fee up but thats small consolation when all we see are top class players leaving and no manager making the decisions, no players joining apart from a rumour of one free transfer from Blackburn. Well thats going to make all the difference. When news of the takeover broke i was filled with optimism but the longer it drags out and the longer the club feels they have to behave as if it won't happen the more and more worried I and many other fans are going to be.

    No gunnerkid107, Liverpool are being a bit previous. Daft, if you ask me. Many a slip between the cup and the lip, as my ma-in-law used to say.

    whilst i am as gutted as anyone to see him go, and had hoped he would stay - and still cannot quite understand why we have decided to allow a deal to be done now, as it will only leave more questions than answers and leave people with concerns from a 'business' point of view it is great business, from a footballing point of view bad but 'if' johnson really did want to go, and has not been pushed, then what could we do? the guy is world-class and world-class footballers eventually find their way into world-class sides and despite the fact that the bin dippers have not shown much class by parading him as a signing before its been confirmed they are just that, world-class...
    good luck johno, you will be missed, but it was inevitable that you would go the same was as lassie and the rest - it is vital that we close the doors now, even if it is only until the takeover is done and a new manager appointed.
    pompeyrug
    We still owe Liverpool for Crouchie storagematt. I agree with all your comments mate. Thank God we have seen him playing some wonderful football down here...
    Pompey Malta
    the bin dippers have now removed johnson from the 'personalised shirt' lists... that, for me does not mean he isnt going there, it just means they realised it wasnt very classy!
    pompeyrug
    What has anything to do with the city of Liverpool ever had to do with class?
    Steve C
    I think that this was agreed with Johnno in January nad his partof the bargain was to help PFC survive-Literally - the drop. He has done his part ..and without him we would be Knackered...So i say good luck to him and wish him well..i just hope that when he has had a a season or two at CL..a really really big club like R Madrid or MUFC buy him. However...my hope is that he wants to stay at POmpey and is waiting for the new purchasers to turn us in to a really successful club...and also hope i will win the lottery and discover a Time Machine/Tunnel in my garden

    I was actually believing he would stay until about a week ago, when Storrie confirmed it and said he expected him to leave, that's when I realised I was deluding myself. I have always said I don't mind players leaving as long as they go to a bigger club, and I stand by it - even though I'm gutted to lose him. It even happens to clubs like Man Utd, we can never expect it not to. Good luck to him and thank you, and please don't score against us next season. Anyway he's probably got a better black market up there for those stolen loo seats!
    tracyc
    There are some sites (mostly american) reporting that Glen will stay. Hope so but doubt it really.
    eastneydave
    its all old news dave, this is the kind of stuff reported a week or more ago unfortunately...
