Belhadj off/More James reports/Hurst suspended
Nadir Belhadj has been linked with a move to several premier league clubs including Spurs, Everton, Blackburn and Birmingham although today it is 'claimed' in The Mirror that Benfica have 'come in with a £3m' bid for him?
He is probably one of the players we would be expecting to lose this month - of course we already have to the African nations - but are we that much in need of his departure that we would take a £1m loss on him?
While David James, who saw his move to Stoke fall through last week and was only yesterday 'claimed' to be subject of a possible deal resurrection from them, is YET AGAIN being 'linked' with Spurs!
Daniel Levy is 'said' to be the man that Harry Redknapp needs to 'convince' about this move to make it happen, but they 'could' offer a better financial deal to suit us, but will it suit them...
Whatever, and wherever James is going - and going still looks the most probable outcome - lets just get it over and done with eh!
And finally, also in The Mirror like everything else today, James Hurst has apparently been suspended by the club?
The talented, and I am sure this kid does have a bright future ahead of him, defender is 'said' to have been caught out, like so many, broadcasting his thoughts to the world on Facebook - it is either Facebook or Twitter that catches out so many, young and old!
He apparently wrote 'I hope we lose today' ahead of our game against Arsenal - I guess he would have been happy as we did, but then again I suspect that he has been slapped with a hefty fine and perhaps his Pompey career is now over?
The guy is only 17, so he is young and youngsters all make mistakes, but I do not think that we will need much excuse these days to save some money - it is a tough one, like I say I think he will be a fantastic football, but there must be club discipline.
Lets just hope that he learns from his mistake and he still has a future at the club? That old phrase 'cutting of your nose to spite your face' springs to mind...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
