That makes it true then...

That makes it true then...

Phew, am I happy Peter Storrie has said that Asmir Begovic is 'going nowhere,' this means I can rest easy safe in the knowledge this 'must be true'...

In case it was not picked up on, I am being sarcastic!

Spurs were 'said' to be looking at him but Storrie says 'we have heard nothing from Spurs.'

The cynical might think that we say this to 'invite' offers for the 22-year-old, then again they might also think that we are 'bigging' up the keeper as to invite offers for another of our keepers David James?

As I have said before, as have others, until quite recently I know who I would have kept but if we HAD to offload a keeper - from these two - I know who I would offload more freely now, and our current no.1 would not be this one!

I WILL believe that Begovic is going nowhere, and it is 'absolute rubbish' if he is still here on February 1st 2010, which I sincerely hope the guy is as I think he has a fantastic future ahead of him.

From his track record what PS says and what the owners do are not one and the same thing. I hope on this occasion he's proved right. Beg is an important part of 'future' Pompey.

I think we'll be seeing alot more of Niemi or Ashdown this season!

I'm almost resigned to losing players, as a means to try to keep the club solvent - but not Begovic. He's the one who would allow James to move on, and is very important for our future.

he's not on a high wage, won't command a high transfer fee and so theres no way in hell he should be sold BUT we need money and we need it now so expect him to be gone by next week and tbh i wouldn't blame the guy for going anyway GL to him..

Right now I wouldn't believe one word coming from anyone remotely official at Fratton Park...dark times
01/01/2010 13:13:00
Yes, in our situation any player has his price. For Beg this could be as low as £1M to help pay the wages this month. Expect a busy month of outgoings from FP.
01/01/2010 13:37:00
if he goes were left with ashdown who we know wants to leave (or sit on his wages here) and we dont like to play him. either way were screwed.
01/01/2010 13:54:00
right, he's off then... thanks asmir

I don't want to see any players leave but the truth is that we will be seeing every worthwhile player leaving the club for peanuts during January, Other clubs will be trying to snaffle a bargain and won't worry about helping us out by paying a fair price. Those of us who have wanted to see youth get it's chance may well get their wish although it may be on a much larger scale than is healthy. I'm guessing that by the time of the winding up hearing it'll be Pompey but not as we know it.

Storrie is as much a crook as the rest of them
