Sail on...

Sail on...

Latest from The News on Mark Viduka is that the Aussie is 'holding out for a better deal' from Pompey.

He wants a 2-year contract at £40,000 per week according to his agent but we have offered 'a mere' £30,000 per week on a 1-year deal - some would argue that even that is too much!

I suggest that he continue sailing around the Greek islands, or wherever it was he was off sailing...

Whilst we cannot expect to offer him 'peanuts' and get a deal I do not think that he is really in a position to be asking for 'dry roasted' as opposed to 'plain salted', Viduka either wants to play for Pompey or he does not - basically it is that simple!

And I think 'if' the 'reported' £30,000 per week really is on the table that is more than ample, right?

Clearly, at this juncture, we need players but we also need players that are not going to be looking to come in on 'big money', if big money is what Viduka is after he has a couple of hopes, and one is no hope!

Leave him on the scrap heap if he will not accept what we offer...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Absolutely right! I don't understand the bloke; he is rubbish at the Barcodes, forever injured and yet still believes he is worth this amount of money - unbelievable. If he had faith in his fitness, ability and desire to battle and fight for the club and a place in the team, he would accept a 'pay as you play' contract but because he's just a transported mercenary and possibly from a family of 18th century ex-cons, there is no chance of that, is there?

£30k a week !! what a waste of money - how many games did he play last year - I suggest if we are to pay him this, it is only for each week that he plays 2 first team games in that week. For each week that he is out injured and does not play, he should get sweet F.A.

What?? £40,000 a week? For what? I do not think that we should really try to push this anymore. We can get other strikers which are both younger and fitter with this amount of money. Even £30 is alot! As the title says, "Sail on..." dear...

On this day in history...20th September

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 20th September.

More Reliable Than A League 1 Octopus? (20/9/17)

Time for the special computer that crunches the numbers to determine the final League One positions for the season of 2017/18.

Roberts opens up

In fairness when Gary Roberts - obviously now at Wigan - says Kenny Jackett showed 'a lack of respect' towards him in the final weeks of his Pompey career it's hard to disagree.

Next in (the firing) line

Of course, Huddersfield loanee Holmes-Dennis is out for the season after suffering ligament damage now - having initially had to sit behind Haunstrup - McCrory has a twisted knee.
