Nugent leaves for Burnley

Nugent leaves for Burnley

Right at the death Dave Nugent left Pompey to join relegation rivals Burnley on loan.

Although not 100% confirmed to Peter Storrie, talking to sky sports news, at the time he did say that a loan deal - with the option to buy - was agreed with Burnley at the end of the window.

Good luck to Dave, things just have not worked out for him here have they...

Storrie did not exactly paint a pretty picture about regarding David James though? Although it might just have been me the way I viewed it.

He seemed to suggest that talk of a move was more from James and his agent and had any firm offer come in - other than a swap deal with Carlo Cudicini - he probably would have gone?

So, there we have it, it is done and dusted, although I still feel a free agent or 2 could, and possibly will, arrive between now and Bolton - I am off now as I have a train to catch home...

Like you say, it never really worked out for Nugent here, so best of luck to him. As for Jamo, hopefully things will start to pick up a bit at FP now with our new owner and new signings, and by January, he'll be happy to stay again. At least he's first choice here, and he needs that for his England place.

hmm, well i not sure to be happy about nugent leaving or disappointed, he's seemed like he genuinly wanted to play for us and do well and so credit where its due but my god he was useless and that miss last week at city was the final straw i think, it was pretty much done there and then. but that said i hope he does well at burnley and it is a loan so we can recall him *whistles* ;D

Good luck to him. He always gave his all. So long as his goals don't keep Burnley up at our expense!

I totally agree Rug about Storries summin g up of James and his agent. I took it as a dig at him as well. I wasn't exactly bowled over by his summing up of Dr Potless either. Strikes me he didn't exactly know where he got his money from...Hey it's never dull being a Pompey fan is it?

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.
