'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dave Nugent - progress report...

Following the Pompey players currently out on loan is something that I 'hope', with the help of my fellow Vital eds/their sides members, to do more of this season to keep us more updated with how they are going.

We start with Dave Nugent, and will continue to follow him - even though it is 'highly unlikely' that he will return to Fratton - during his spell at Burnley with something that turfmanphil, from Vital Burnley, has written for us.

So, enough from me I will hand you over to Phil:

'Sounds like he had a rough time at Pompey and doesn't want to go back. Seems much happier back up North and I suppose you playing him out on the wing didn't do him much good and could have accounted for his low goal tally.

'He looks hungry for goals and after the Black Cats match we all have high hopes for him following that stunning brace. He is still not totally 100% match fit though and might be used more as an impact sub at the moment although we have now lost Martin Paterson (out for 3 months, torn cartilage) so he has more chance of starting.

'Nugent actually started against Spurs last Saturday and did look threatening on occasion but also tired towards the end. He would have hoped to have done better against old twitchy face Redknapp, but the whole team struggled in the 5-0 tonking. I read in the Sun that Harry never wanted Nugent at Pompey and was after Anelka at the time instead. It would appear the Pompey board forced the 6m signing on him? Is that what they are saying down your way?

'He needs a few more games under his belt before we can decide what to do with him but things are looking promising so far.

'Will be interesting to see whether we will sign him permanently come Jan window or at least extend his loan. I assume if he is still on loan when we play Pompey at Turf Moor in Feb he wont be allowed to play with the same going for the Fratton Park clash on 5th Dec.'

Thanks again to turfmanphil from Vital Burnley.

No problem, Rug glad to help! Did you all read that Sun thing or was that news all old hat to you?
turfmanphil
Well Phil you are right about Floppychops not wanting the Nugget - he was too cheap! I was watching MOTD with a member of the Training ground staff last week when Dave scored twice. His reaction was he could never do that in training! Which is why he could not get in the side.

I did advise a Burnley friend of mine to make sute the goals were enlarged at Turf Moor if they wanted him to score goals - well you certainly listened!!
eastneydave
I thought if Nuge would have been given the No 9 shirt and with a run of games for us, would have done ok. Well I would have thought he'd have done better than those so far! We'll never know! I trust he won'y play against us whilst still on loan?

I wish Burnley every success this year, they're a great story. Nugent, however is a prat and good riddance to him.
Toronto4Pompey
Toronto - you took the words right out of my mouth, on both counts!
Pompeytim
A couple of times it looked like it was going to work out for him at Pompey, but in the end it was never going to. But I'm not sure Burnley should get too carried away yet - yes he scored two goals, in one match . . . thats it so far.

We forced Nuge on Redders? *********, he'd have jumped ship if we forced any players on him. Harry bought a duffer and he's frightened to admit it. For every 5 top players he signs, he buys a duffer.

I do watch all the games on MotD you know, I don't need people who support teams with points to tell me what's what.
Lysimachus
Lysimachus you are in the top 6 on 5 wins, a draw and a loss, your forwards are knocking them in for fun and your defence water tight. Is that what you want to hear?
TergeHauge
there is absolutely no way that you can see everything a player does from MOTD Lysimachus, just like no one can ever get a full feel for a game unless they are there - even watching it on the box does not give you the full picture does it, so i appreciate turfmanphil's effort on this, and will continue to appreciate them, as i will others that will keep us updated with our loan players.
