No surprise, Grant IS in the running
Lets face it the 'suggestion' that Avram Grant WAS NOT in the running to become the next Pompey boss was preposterous - seemed liked a good time to use that word - really, right?
How could he NOT be in the running to take over?
So, it will come as 'little surprise' that sky sports 'sources' have 'confirmed' that Grant could be the man to replace Paul Hart.
How convenient it is that his work permit 'should' finally come through in the next couple of days...
Despite Darren Ferguson being 'hotly tipped' by the bookies and Alan Curbishley's name creeping up this list Grant is almost 'nailed on', as he was from the minute he arrived as our director of football, is he not, surely?
Also, there is some talk - despite the 'official statement' saying otherwise - that Hart COULD still take up the position that he was offered with the club, a position he was said to have declined?
To be honest could the guy really continue to work at the club where he has had to work with his hands tied behind his back, seen a guy brought in as the director of football that was always likely to replace him, been 'relieved of his duties' and now 'almost certainly will' be replaced by this director of football? I just cannot see it...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
