Boateng bonus!

Boateng bonus!

Quite when this was announced, and how it has managed to sneak under the radar I do not know, but according to The Quay Kevin-Prince Boateng WILL NOT be going to the African Nations next month!

Boateng left out of Ghana squad - here

It says that he has 'been left out of the Ghana squad for the African Cup of Nations next month.

'He was expected to be part of the 23 man setup travelling to Angola for the tournament after recently pledging his International future to the Black Stars. However, he will now be available for all of Pompey's January games.'

I checked out Ghanaweb.com - here, and he has indeed been left out by all accounts, with this announcement made on Thursday.

Quite why this is I do not know?

Clearance needed to come through for him to switch from Germany - Ghana, so perhaps this has not/will not happen in time, hence him being left out? Then again perhaps he is just judged not good enough at the moment?

Either, the bonus of having arguably our most creative influence available to us when others will not be is fantastic news, right?

the thing that makes me scheptical is that sulley hasnt got in the team either.....appiah,maybe thats right as he hasnt a club but sulley? who plays for inter milan, just behind essien, their next most famous asset....if true, a very strange decision by the management and an awfully big risk.....unless hes long term injured i suppose

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!

Will pair stay at Fratton?

It's been made (more than once) clear by Catlin Pompey want Davies & Hollands to stay. Both (also more than once) have said they want to this - deals have to be right for all concerned.
