Wilson staying with Pompey

Marc Wilson has committed the next 3-and-a-half-years to Pompey as he has signed a new contract to stay until the end of the 2012/13 season at least.

The defender was 'linked' with Reading last summer and Celtic just last week but he has told The Pompey Site that staying was always what he wanted: 'I've always wanted to stay at Pompey. This is my seventh year here and I really enjoy it.

'The fans are great and I couldn't imagine playing anywhere else.

'I've really enjoyed playing first-team football this season and learning from some very experienced players.

'There are a lot of good players here and even just training alongside them has helped me improve my game.'

I have never hidden the fact that I like the guy, afterall he was down as my 'young player to watch' last season and to be fair when he came in for a brief while to play at right back he looked good.

Yep, he has made mistakes this season - then again who has not, but he is learning from these mistakes, right?

Whilst at 22 he is not exactly a 'youngster' anymore, in terms of footballing experience he still is but is getting better the more games he plays and I would not be at all surprised to see him gaining international recognition with Ireland soon.

I am more than happy to see him want to stay, although I am still not entirely sure where his best position is? I am thinking that he is perhaps best suited in a defensive midfield role sitting just in front of the back four as he has the footballing ability to help us attack with the defensive ability to also defend.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Yeh happy for now. The Guardian are running another of their happy stories saying that Chainrai is not willing to put in any of his money so we need to get someone in that will. However, Storrie is supposedly in communications with parties n they are saying that they expect something in place soon. Time will tell, yet not 2 much time though mind!

He was fantastic against Fulham. He will captain Pompey in years to come. Great. Centre back is his best position. Now that Kaboul has left, it is all down to him to keep an organised defence. It was clear that he was instructing Ben Haim. Not the other way!

good news but maybe i'm being a little cynical when i think that a longer contract means we can get a bigger fee for him.
