Suits me fine!

The News is reporting that Pompey's efforts to bring Gavin McCann to the club could be thwarted by the fact that the midfielder 'does not want to join Pompey', well actually it might be more that he does not want to leave Bolton.


That is what I have to say about those thoughts.

I honestly am at a loss to understand what McCann would bring to the table that we do not even have anyway? So, if he does not want to sign I am more than happy with that!

Talk that Dave Nugent was being used as a 'makeweight' in a deal for McCann and Danny Shittu is also 'said' to be untrue...

Turning it on its head .. we've been turned down by Gavin McCann !.. Jeez is there any hope ... Failing to get Viduka was one thing (not that we wanted him) but McCann is another - Realistically what chance have we got of attracting somebody with any ability if we can't end secure the services of somebody at the bottom of the barrell !.. Sad times indeed ..

Chix - we don't know the terms they were offering. After all we wouldn't be splashing big dosh at him.

I think until the club is 'steady(ish)', then most players will turn us down. I was kinda hoping that most would join, what with it being The World Cup next summer, and Pompey being able to provide them with precious playing time.
