Pompey's new manager lined up?

Pompey's new manager lined up?

Not for the first time the name Vahid Halilhodzic has been spoken about as a 'serious option' for the Pompey job...

It is claimed that 'Pompey officials' have been in discussions with the Ivory Coast manager for the past 4-weeks or so, which was about the time this first broke out of the blue, with it now 'claimed' that he will be unveiled as our next manager sometime soon?

I do not know much about the bloke to be honest - not that this means he is a bad manager, his track record seems decent enough on the club and international scene, but it would still be 'a surprise' if we did bring him in I must say.

That said a surprise name would not exactly be a surprise in many ways as a good number of us have started to think that it may well be an outsider that comes in?

Still, I think that I would prefer someone that we actually knew of, and had some form of knowledge of the English game to be honest - despite his experience the English game is not something that the Bosnian has experienced before...

Pompey have a lot of connections in France, so this is possible, and it is said that this could be a genuine option. I am being told that 'French clubs that had been sounding him out as a possible manager have dropped out of the running,' if that means anything?

We are refusing to comment on these reports, but does that mean anything? Previously we have ruled things out, but we have neither ruled Halilhodzic in or out this time, again, if that means anything?

Yep, certainly a strange option and most definitely a surprise if it come off - but will it came off? Time will tell I guess...

Vaha he is to be known. Yep strange, but he has some interesting cv and has worked in several countries which means he can attract players form everywhere. Never heard of him before we started to be linked to him, but seems to be interesting. I think I like this idea.

umm.. I've been out of the loop for a month or so, so this is the first time I've heard the geezers name... A manager in France, Bosnia, Turkey, and Morocco and National coah of Yugoslavia and Ivory Coast... An interesting CV but not one which makes you jump up and down and think 'that's the man we've been looking for!'

I wonder if PFC will come out and make a denial on the claims being put about concerning this guy. They did with Sven if I remember rightly. Strange choice if he actually is being lined up. Don't know what to make of it really. Oh well, I guess it's something to keep us occupied until the real deal is done and dusted.

Far out brussel sprout! Surely this is just another silly rumour? He has had some pretty big jobs and seems to have done quite well at them, however, isnt Ivory Coast set for the African cup and the WC next year.

I think only Pompey fans can understand the incredible uncertainty surrounding the club just now. You need a resolution to so many things. I don't know which way things will go but I wish you well... This guy Vahid Halilhodzic. Oh it just sounds like a MASSIVE gamble and the fans deserve better.

Vital View - League 2, 18th February 2017

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
