Bye bye Djimi!

Bye bye Djimi!

Sky sports is reporting that Djimi Traore has become the first of the 'wage grabbers' to be cut adrift by Pompey with him completing a free to Monaco - joining them on a 2-year contract.

To be fair to the guy, he might not have been the best player we have ever had but was also someway from being the worst, right?

At the end of the day anyone that can play over 100 games for the bin dippers and pick up several medals, including a champions league winners one cannot be all bad can they...can they?

Whatever though Traore has landed on his feet with the French side, although they may well look back with regret sometime down the line...

We need new faces. Although i am a Hermannator fan, I think that he too should leave. Maybe I will think not tomorrow, but I am looking forward for a new Pompey.

Another guy who didn't cut the mustard. I always thought he was a bit error prone. No, he wasn't all bad, but definitely didn't deliver on the expectations of him considering his previous career. There were the odd flashes of capability, but never established himself as a first team regular. Let's hope he can make a go of it at Monaco.

It was good having him even thought he didnt play much. I think his greatess moment for us was he did a overhead kick to clear the ball of the line on the last day of the season, against Arsenal in 2007

Good luck Djimi!! Always tried hard but... Played in the 2007 home wins against the bin dippers and Manure and played well. So he has got it just has trouble finding it.
