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

On off deal back on? Oh the joy!

Will he?
Wont he?
Should he?
Shouldn't he?
Will they pay?
Will we pay?
Who should pay what?
Who should not pay what?
Who should pay what and for how long?
Who should not pay what and for how long?

Just some of the things that have meant David James' move to Stoke has so far fallen through and would not happen, although this is now BACK, so sky sports news 'understands'...

Are we NOT just going to see the same situation as last week though? If we could not agree on things last week, why would we now?

Then again maybe our needs has become more 'desperate' this week...

I understand that James was talking in the paper this week about wages, and how out of control they have got - 'maybe' he needs to consider a reduction in what he earns with a move in mind?

I, to clarify, AM NOT trying to knock James too much, the guy has been fantastic for us, but even Stevie Wonder can now see that WE want him out and that HE knows it is best that he gets out of dodge.

Can we not just come to an amicable agreement that we 'terminate' his contract, he walks away and joins Stoke, or whoever and takes a pay-cut, which is then down to him to agree...

Although I suspect that we will get to the same stage again as we were last week, the plug will be pulled again with an agreement unable to be reached!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

If Jamo takes a pay cut, Stoke will take him on loan & plays. If he doesn't we may not play him.
storagematt
In all honesty why should he take a pay cut ? It might be honorable but (as with the Campbell thing) all he is doing is expecting what he and the club agreed would be his renumeration.. The amount in question is somewhat irrelevant .. I think Stoke were wrong not to offer a fee OR pay all of his wages until the end of the season, but I also think it was rich of Pompey to expect Stoke to pay the full amount right up to contract expiry in June.. There's a lot of room for compromise in this deal and I'm sure it will go through somehow
Chix
Good balanced article Rug, I agree mostly with Chix, however if I had to jump off the fence if non commitment I would say if Jamo was really concerned about the world cup he would take a pay cut to get there. I don't think it will be in the clubs best intrest to terminate the contract as he still has a residual value, even if it were only a million ( only !!!!) we need the money.

Personally - Jamo's best interests are to renegotiate his contract with Pompey downward - he'll play every game and we'll save money.

I wish they could ring us up personally tell us to keep it to ourselves but let us know what is going on... totally unrealistic... but .... pop....

Jim4pompey, in an ideal world your suggestion would work. Unfortunately professional footballers do not live in an ideal world.
