Pompey officially confirm who is out the door!

We all knew which of the out-of-contract players were being released, and also knew the loanees from last season had returned to their parent clubs but Pompey have today officially confirmed, on the Pompey Site, that 5 players have gone off the payroll today.

Noe Pamarot, Lauren, Glen Little, Djimi Traore and Jerome Thomas have been confirmed as 'being released.'

Being blunt for a minute we are not going to miss any of them are we, lets be honest!

Pamarot is the only one that had been a 'serious' 1st team contender last season, most of the others, in particular Lauren and Traore have been nothing short of 'money grabbers' for too long! The Cameroonian should have been told to pack his bags and leave in January after his outburst, if need be we should have paid him up there and then instead of allowing him to show his face round the training ground, albeit only every now and again...

Either way, good luck to the lot of them.

It was also again confirmed, although officially this time, that Kanu and Sol Campbell are still players that 'could' well have a future at Pompey, The King almost certainly so.

Glad to see the back of Lauren, he was a really negative person to have about the place and only ever after money. Shame about Paramot. He always put in a decent shift and was such a unit to have at right back to cover Glen, and you can't forget that goal against Newcastle!!!

Hear hear re Pamarot. Always did a job when asked, though I was always nervous that we might ask too often

Yep only Noe made any real contibution last season & before & he probably is best his best. Time to move on, fresh blood needed. Out with old & in with the ...

I agree with all there. Pamarot's goals at Newcastle though will always be remembered, as will Glen Little's mesmerising of Kaka.

paramount will get his own mention when he moves on as he deserves it to be fair, ive kind of drafted something for him, i just need to know where he is going...
all-in-all glad to see the back of them tbh, especially lauren!

Well this makes things a bit clearer. Gekas, Traore and Pennant have already gone, I believe? What about the young midfielder, Pele? I think he was on loan(?) but never entirely sure on that. Has he already gone?

Yeah, it's been coming for a long time. The much needed cull. We'd better stop now though or there will be no one left. As you guys have said Pamarot was the only one who put in a shift for the first team, but it's all change now. A new era is opening up, and plugging the drain on the wage bill has got to be a plus. Hopefully it's onward and upward from here on...PUP.

Ok, so Pele was definitely a loan then, thanks for clearing that up. I'm disappointed we didn't see more of him and the Greeks, but - as you say - I won't have any sleepless nights about any of the five released today.

A rapid update of the Squad on the VP site is in order, methinks

sorry to have appeared so 'abrupt' with my reply phil, was in a hurry to get it done and do something else - reading it back it looks alittle snappy...

methinks you are right tony - its only about 18-months out of date as it is lol!

Noe looked very shakey the last part of last season, however before then, he was a very dependable backup player. Little and Thomas I'm a bit surprised by, as - although both are injury prone, they also both could offer us something. particually if kranjcar leaves, and we don't sign a right winger. Dimji Traore+lauren... no surprises there!

To be honest I never liked Pamarot. He is not a PL player to me. Sorry, but true.

Blimey, our wage bill must have dropped by about 50% with these players leaving, players moving on and loanees returning to their clubs. Can't be a bad thing.

Happy to see all of these gone, although jerome thomas surprised me. as carpet said he could of offered a bit of much needed pace down the wing because god knows utaka is unreliable. im still concerned our squa/d is being slowly but surely wittled down. i wonder who will go next ?
