New signing? That is what he will be like!
Angelos Basinas, remember him?
Well he, or more to the point his agent Paul Koutsoliakos, has today been speaking to The News about the Greek international and how he wants to prove that he is not 'a flop'.
Yep, the guy is 34-year-old and in all honesty probably did sign for Pompey a few years too late but I must say that like his agent I thought that in the 'first three games, he played fantastic', although maybe fantastic is pushing it, but he was certainly a different level, and quality, to what we had and what we used after!
Does he deserve a chance?
Well, if his attitude is anything like the one his agent if portraying, which is one of him working hard, wanting to be successful with Pompey and wanting to stay, then that is good enough for me - someone with 100 caps that wants to pull on the blue shirt, 'passed it or not', sits fine with me!
Basinas will be like a new signing, and maybe, depending on who gets the job, he will get this chance - as things stand now he would certainly be ahead of others we have, as he should have been for me last season.
Lets give him a chance, what have we got to lose...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
