Hull approach for Grant?

Hull approach for Grant?

Asked about the vacant Hull job following our defeat at Liverpool last night Avram Grant said: 'I thought about leaving in January but I saw the supporters and said, 'No I can't do it.'

'I stayed, I'm fighting for the club and do not have any intention to give up. This club has become very important to me.

'I'd ask the new owner for some stability and I'm waiting for the day this club gets some stability.'

This has not stopped sky sports news from 'fuelling the fire' this evening with their latest 'breaking news' story one that says: 'sky sources: Hull have approached Avram Grant over managerial vacancy.'

Although they also say that Grant remains committed to Pompey and would turn down any job offered to him at the moment due to this commitment...

You can never say never, history has proven this for us, although I do not think - and would like to think this will be the case - that he will abandon us at this point, then again will we 'sell him' if the price is right!? But unlike some I suspect 'no' is a word that he is familiar with and can say, as well as accepting having said to him, which I guess it would have been many times over the months!

UPDATE

Admin Andy has told sky sports that Grant is going NOWHERE and is staying until the end of the season, at least: 'Avram has no plans to leave Portsmout.

'He has given me his commitment to stay at the club at least until the end of the season.

...and also, we're rejecting those reports. on past experiance, that hasn't meant a lot... but maybe the new guys (administraters) are more honest?

the worrying thing is, is they would offer money for him and the club needing it

I'd be quite happy fir Grant to leave at the end of the season, I think tactically he has been very average. We can't let him go before then and he won't want to go from one relegation fodder to another; he also won't want to miss out on the chance of an FACup for his troubles. Quite happy for him to go at the end of the season though.

russellm its not fair saying he is average on his tactics,look at what he has to work with,its not the greatest team in the world is it and for strength in depth whats he got to call on,about 7 defensive midfielders and not much else,give the guy a break,he cant be that bad on tactics to have taken chelsea as far as he did,and look at where we are in the cup aswell.

It a fckin early for an April fool's joke. Hull are a desperate club & they won't survive. An obscene call by them just as we are about to play them.

AVRAM GRANT is still the only one ever, that took chelsea to the champs final, as the better side(they lose to MU because of a bad luck). Not mourinho took chelsea to the champs final and not anyone who come after him, except of AVRAM GRANT. Russel, you've better hush and not react like an irritating child, that know something, anything, about tactics, when you are talking about the only manager ever, that took chelsea to the champs final, as the better side, especially when he replaced Mourinho when they spotted 6 or 7 in the league. AG know everything and anything, tactically and strategically and the players fight for him. if that wasn't the case, pompey would have tottaly collapsed right now. Supporters like you russel, there are plenty in chelsea, that's why after AVRAM GRANT lost in the champs final(when chelsea was the better side), he was dismissed "for a bigger name" that even not close to the ability of chelsea under AG rule. but hey, pompey is not chelsea and has no budget like chelsea and AG could choose to manage standard league teams from england, italy or spain and not a collapsed club. but hey, one russel can't spoil a huge crowd, with heart, passion and wisdom and the fact that AG, win the polls here with more than 80% that claim that the most important thing for pompey, more than anything else, is that AG will stay next year, talking for itself. I don't know if AG will stay or not, it's depend on him, but the huge love of the crowd, is an important motive in his decision.

An attempt by Hull to de-stabilise us before the weekend. It won't work though as AG immediately rebuffed them, might even backfire. The man's a hero really, he's gone up most people's etimation, not just a Pompey.
