Well said that man!

Well said that man!

Even before Aaron Mokoena had kicked a ball for Pompey he was getting stick, granted initially I was as bad as most, but I think his opening displays against Benfica - to a degree, but certainly Rangers and Fulham at the weekend suggest that he has 'what we need' this season.

Like I say these performances have been encouraging, but it is his off the field actions that have today impressed me - he has said that the takeover talk should not be a distraction and cannot be used as an excuse.

Players get paid to do a job, and get paid handsomely to do so, so until they fail to be paid lets see them do what is asked of them - well done, and said, Mokoena!

One way to earn the respect of Pompey fans is to give 100% every week, signs are he will do that and another way is to say the right things, and so far so good...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I have always said that Mokoena will be an important player for us. He is a leader by nature, and he is showing character here at Pompey already.

Proper proffessional attitude; I'm tired of listening to those poor old worried players with their houses and cars paid for; they have it tough. Well said Moko !

Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

Cushioning the blow

Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.

Swindon striker in 'Pompey's sights'

Michel Smith, who was of course on loan last season, could return? He's still in 'Pompey's sights' by all accounts after Swindon informed him he's 'surplus to requirements' now.
