No Kidding!

No Kidding!

It has officially been confirmed that Brian Kidd will not be continuing his partnership with Hart, it has been in doubt all Summer, but Brian Kidd has worked in the North nearly all his career,he had a brief spell as a Gooner as a player but has coached and managed his whole career in the Northern counties.

It is believed Pompey offered him the chance to work 3 days a week at fratton and spend the rest of the time at home, but with young Grandchildren in the Manchester area, he declined and will spend the remainder of his footballing career as a number 2 in the grim North.

Let's just say I'm really dissapointed about Kidd not coming back. Hart needs a number two pretty dam quick, but who? It needs to be a tactition because Harty just hasn't got it in that department. The Rangers game will be interesting that's for sure. What's the bets on 451?

It'll say something if he does go to Ipswich - it's not much easier to get to than Pompey from the North West.

What is it with all the 4-5-1 talk? Can't people see that was a formation to keep us up last year, Ok it wasn't pretty but it did the job with the players available. I don't think for one minute it was Paul Harts prefered formation just one forced on him by circumstances. This season will be tough but if 4-5-1 is what it takes to keep us up then thats what it needs to be. I'd love to see Pompey go out and throw the kitchen sink at the oposition but until this damn takeover is finalised and some money put in we'll just need to get the job done.

This is another blow - you wonder how much more we can take. I thought Kidd was a great addition to the club, and had a huge part to play in Hart keeping us up. Can only say Thank you Brian, and good luck with whatever you do next.

Ipswich is the sphincter of England (and just to get this clear, despite the geographical discomfort, Soton is the haemorrhoid on the sphincter of England). In-laws are from Ipswich and a more hateful s***hole I have yet to visit and that INCLUDES Reading town centre.

Nathan Thompson - A Swindon perspective

Prior to his departure for Wigan, Paul Cook wanted Nathan Thompson at Pompey. Interest was retained by Kenny Jackett, who completed his free transfer signing from Swindon last week.

On this day in history...26th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 26th June.

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.

Interest in Plymouth midfielder? Unfortunately not

Apparently, having stolen the League Two title from Plymouth, we'll not be taking the Pilgrims' best player, ex-Celtic midfielder Carey, currently out-of-contract at Home Park.
