You can stick your money and Carlo up your R's!

'David James is our rock so Spurs can keep their £1m and Carlo Cudicini', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I totally agree with...

The 'word on the street' earlier in the week was that Jamie's Dad, not content with pillaging Pompey as much as he has, wanted to come back once again - this time for James and was looking to offer £1m plus Carlo Cudicini in return. A decent deal some might say, but James is still one of the best around and you cannot replace his quality, command of the area and experience - all of which we will need this season.

Granted Cudicini is a decent keeper and one that probably has deserved to be more than a bit part player for the past decade! Although you also have to ask the question why has this been? Is this because on a long-term regular basis he is not the solution to any teams problems...

We must keep Jamo, he most certainly is our rock and will be instrumental for us this season!

Maybe more worryingly though he has also been 'heavily linked' to Sunderland, with it now confirmed to me that James does have a new girlfriend who is based in Cheshire - so a move to Sunderland 'might' not be as highly unlikely as it seemed?

Either what we just have to hope that he is as committed to staying as he said he was, but more importantly we are as committed to allowing him to stay as we say we are...

  • What the poll asked - Carlo Cudicini and £1m for David James - would you accept?

  • How you voted - Nope, Jamo is our rock 62%, Yep, Cudicini is a fantastic keeper and younger 30%, Does not matter what I think! 8%

    Before we move on what are your thoughts on what the last poll concluded? You know what to do, thoughts below please guys...

    PLAY UP POMPEY!

    I think Cudici would rather retire than join Portsmouth!! Least you'll be back where you belong next season and if Southampton get promoted you'll have your local derby again, everyones a winner!!

    Aah yes, "back to where we belong", this is coming from Spurs fans who clearly feel they follow a 'big club'. Now that Newcastle have been relegated I do believe we have a new winner of the title 'the most deluded fans in the Premier League'. Good luck with the 'Big 4' thing chaps, I think you might need it.

    as for jamo, just because spurs fans do not want him this does not mean jamie's dad does not want him - he clearly thinks he is better than cudicini as he talks about james far more than him, and gomes... clearly gomes has improved but once jamie's dad decides 'you are not for him' you do not have a hope, and he will be looking to do all he can to bring in 'his own man' to replace him, we know how the guy works, trust me.

    Just a friendly word of caution, Harry has a record of leaving clubs in the financial p**. He did it at Saints and again at Pompey. As far as I can see he has spent almost as much as Man City so far (although nobody seems to mention it!) and is no afraid of some big wages either. Just make sure you tame the spending desires of our twitchy friend. As for going into administration, maybe, but we'll keep behind the team to the very end, that is the only thing for certain.

    The only manager around more unreliable than The Ginger Tw@t is Keegan. Dear Spuds fans, you just wait and see what happens - oh and lillywhites101, Arabs, Jews? No difference really . . . . erm, you are aware that you're called, 'the Yids' aren't you? Presumably 101 refers to the number of brain cells you possess.
