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

Will he stay or will he go?

Derby have made a loan move for Tommy Smith, with Nigel Clough confirming that he would like to take the Pompey forward - who previously played for Derby - back to Pride Park on loan until the end of the season.

He says that they made an approach last week, and is still trying to get in touch with an agent and/or management at Pompey, although they have had no joy as of yet and with him returning to the side at the weekend - and scoring his 1st Pompey goal - not to mention the fact that he will most probably want to be involved in the FA cup semi final in some way Clough does not think the move will be successful?

The football leagues loan window closes this week, Thursday I think, so they have not got that much time to work in...

To be honest I would hope that Smith does not want to go anywhere, something I do not think he will, and would also hope - even though the money for a loan move, albeit a small amount, would most probably be welcomed - that we are not looking to offload him as I like the guy and can see the benefits of giving him a run in our side!

Smith is, for me, the most natural player that we have to fill in the right sided area if we persist with this 4-5-1, or 4-3-3, formation that we are going with - he would also be able to stay out wide in a 4-4-2 set-up if we changed formation mid-game...

I will be hoping that he goes nowhere before the end of the week - and can only hope that the club have the same thoughts, although I guess 'time will tell' what is going to happen.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

We should keep him, we will need a proven div1/nopower league goal scorer so can fill the gap about to be created by the departure of Dongding and Piquione. The other thing is he's ours and will be paid for at the end of the season. LoL let's also p155 off Nugent and get him back, he's no excuse, neither Storrie nor Wilson will be around; he's also paid for.

yeh i would want to keep him aswell. might score a few more goals now after he scored his first on saturday.

I agree keep him. Hard-working, and gets in good positions. He really really impressed me against Stoke, and to be fair deserves to start against Chelski. He'll be a complete asset in the NPower

Need all hands on deck now AD has been marooned - his season has finished thru no fault of his own, and its a shame cos we could have lined up in an attacking mode at Wembley, but Grant will have to play like we have done in the last few games, only probably without O'Hara - not good, but there it is - I hope the Liverpool Legend gets a start angainst up to their neck in debt Chelsea - Play Up Pompey!

I feel sorry for Dindane, it's not his fault or issue really; I also noticed how quick Pompey fans were to accuse him of being "dis loyal" and " having a poor attitude", which seems unfair, well was unfair; poor show Pompey fans! I think if if in his position lots would have left the stadium even if the club hadn't told me to.
