Diop the next to commit

Diop the next to commit

If we are not signing players - and we have done a fair amount of that in the past 72-hours or so - we are getting them to sign new contracts...

Hot on the heels of the announcement from The Pompey Site that Kanu had committed for the rest of the season Papa Bouba Diop, another of the FA cup heroes - see there are a few left, has agreed an extension until 2011.

Peter Storrie is happy to have tied the midfielder down: 'it's good news. Papa's a strong midfielder and it's great that he has committed himself to Pompey.

'Papa wanted to extend his contract last season but he injured his knee so first we wanted to make sure he was fit and there were no problems. That's the case so we were keen to get him signed up.'

The option of another year on top of this is also available should he/we choose.

Another good move by the club, as if we have Papa at his best - so long as he is not shooting - he will be of great benefit to us, we just need him to stay fit as well!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

ere ere - Papa is up for the fight and that is what we need. You have to take the good times with the bad and I would think survival this season would match winning the Cup for some players. The whole world is against us at the moment and that is when we (Pompey) are at our best.

I agree Dave I will take 5th from bottom now. This news, it's another drop of that good news stability thing; all goes towed that team spirit thing. Just need the manager and the urgently needed assistant to turn it around on the pitch

I feel so beleaguered by public opinion that - funnily enough - I am now convinced that we will be OK. A sort of Dunkirk spirit. As long as we're not getting shelled from the beach we should be ok.

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.
