Kanu staying for at least a month

Kanu staying for at least a month

Kanu has signed a new contract with Pompey, which will see him stay at Fratton for the next month.

The Kings current deal expired in the summer but he has always said he wanted to stay, so at least until the end of this month he will.

It is a very odd arrangement, but I would guess that this month is basically his pre-season time so if he proves he is worth a longer term deal I would expect him to sign something to take him through until Christmas?

I'm pleased to see him sign, ok he's not the prolific striker we'd all like but he's the knack of scoring important goals. There will be a lot of games this season that will need important goals scored. I'm puzzled by the 1 month contract as well as i believe he's played enough games to trigger a new 12 month deal.

If you read your Summer Toast you will know that Kanu was 33 on August 1st. How many minutes will he play in that month? That is the question.

One month.. That is silly. Unless it is a ploy to have cover until Dr SAF's takeover is complete, and then he will go out and buy David Vill............... Or just a Pompey thing. Only pompey could do this..

The cost per minute played ratio will be interesting as Eastneydave suggests.. and as for KAnu having a roll with the club.. I'd suggest Cheese & Pickle

Don't think he would be interested in a roll, I see Kanu as more of a bagel man myself. I love watching the guy and I think a month is fair just to see if he can still do it. I'm sure he can.

No More Quarter Final Replays For Pompey

Should Portsmouth progress through to an FA Cup quarter final from the 2016/17 season onwards, the game will no longer be subject to a replay.

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.
