Keeping Grant is most important?

Keeping Grant is most important?

'In the event of relegation keeping Avram Grant in the most important thing', not my vote, yours - although these findings from PompeyFrippy's poll are thoughts that I do and do not necessarily agree with to be honest...

Avram has well and truly become our leader, and that is what we will need next season - so you can see why he is valued so highly.

Although Avram Grant or no Avram Grant can we really afford to start next season on a minus points deficit in the 1st division - I know it is the Championship...

It is a tough call, but I must say that I am a touch surprised that the vote was so much in favour of Grant and not more on starting next season on 0pts - surely, and we cannot afford back-to-back relegations, beginning on an even playing field is something we need?

  • What the poll asked - Which is the most important to keep, should we get relegated?

  • How you voted - Avram Grant 82%
    Our points (i.e start next season on a 0 points) 14%
    Key players 4%

    Before we move on what are your thoughts on what the last poll concluded? You know what to do, thoughts below please guys...

    ToputTi put it mildly the poll result result is short sighted emotional and just wrong. people need to be clear starting without a points deduction has to by far and away the most important, if we take a 17 or 20 point deduction we will be relegated next season and probably won't recover for many years; if at all. Grant will almost certainly be cherry picked by another team, we now cannot offer him Euro football and we can't afford his salary; therefor giving the next man with some key players an even chance of staying in the fizzy pop league has to be the way forward. The only thing Storrie says that I believe is people come and go; the club must stay forever.

    Has anyone seen this interview with Grant's wife? She's a legend too! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/celebritynews/7380545/Tzofit-Grant-Avram-gets-lonely-so-maybe-he-needs-a-massage.html

    You need a manager that can get something out of the players, Mandaric was not wrong in sacking all those who "fell below the level of events" until he got the right man. He must be tactically astute and be able to out-think the opposition managers, and I havent seen many who can do it Mowbray, Curbishly - maybe. I doubt Uncle Avram will stay, which is a shame - who will take his place? Groves??

    On this day in history...30th May

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 30th May.

    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!
