Gary Mac confirms Pompey 'chat'

Gary Mac confirms Pompey 'chat'

'Reports' that Gary McAllister could join the Pompey coaching staff first surfaced yesterday morning, although these said he was going to be a coach and not the new no.2...

Late in the day BBC Sport 'confirmed' that Gary Mac would be taking up a role with the club, and would in actual fact become Paul Hart's no.2. To be fair to the BBC they are 'usually' pretty on the ball, are they not?

Today he has told The News that he is, or maybe even has come down for a 'chat' but would not say anymore: 'I'm coming down for a chat but I can't say anything more than that at the moment.

'Things might become a bit clearer soon but I am going to have to leave it at that for now.'

If he wants a job and we want to give him a job lets get it done - we could do a lot worse!

All Radio 5 Live evening news bulletins said they 'understand' he had taken the post - not a confirmation. Let's hope it's confirmed today.

He turned the Scotland No. 2 job. I'd take him. He won a lot as a player, has a winning & attacking mentality. Desperately need that touchline presence!

Be interesting if he joining as a number 2 to Hart or to Strachan, as it appears that is the latest rumour on TribalFootball, with Hart moving upstairs to Director of Football

Interesting theory, would quite like that as I rate Strachan and it also solves the problem of them having filled Hart's previous role, lets him take on an position overseeing all of the different levels and bringing them together. Something I think he'll be good at. Having said that the teams been doing alright the last couple of games, just can't seem to break our duck.

Sky reckon gary's unlikely coming Would be a shame -he's a decent geezer. I took my 11 year old son to see a pre-season friendly between Bray (near Dublin) and Leeds acouple of years back and Gary was really friendly to my kid -chatted bout Football for 10 mins or so

Debut delight...kind of!

It wasn't a result, and in many ways a performance, for Sheff United loanee Freeman to remember too fondly as he didn't really have a great game against Orient? Then again who did!

Tubbs has left the building

Tubbs has finally left Pompey; perhaps his destination is something of a surprise then again there had been some 'rumours' recently of an Eastleigh interest.
