Will The Herminator be back? Not sure...

Will The Herminator be back? Not sure...

'It is too soon to say if The Herminator will play football again', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I WANT to agree with but am not entirely convinced will be the case to be honest...

It was a cruel, cruel blow to both Pompey and of course The Herminator to not only have his chances of a return to Wembley destroyed but also his season, and potentially career, ended by his Achilles injury sustained at Spurs last weekend.

Avram Grant said that he has been playing with an ankle injury for a number of weeks so this 'probably' did not help, although this goes to show just how committed The Herminator is, and has been, to the club this season - as he has for sometime to be fair.

The guy did not deserve to see his Pompey career, and perhaps his career full stop, to be ended in such a way - if this proves the case?

Although at his age, and he will be around 36-years-old by the time he has recovered enough to even think of playing again, perhaps this is the end of the line and a coaching career awaits a man that is as crazy as a junkyard dog.

It would be fantastic to see him play again, and even better for this to be for us next season, as we WILL need characters like him around, so all we can do is keep our fingers crossed and wish him well...

  • What the poll asked - Not nice I know, but do you think The Herminator will play again?

  • How you voted - Really not sure, too soon to say 37%
    Nope - at his age probably not 32%
    Yep - he'll be back, with Pompey! 20%
    Yep - he'll be back! 8%
    Depends how much he wants it 3%

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

    PLAY UP POMPEY!

    I wonder if the ankle injury was actually a weakening of his achilles? Makes you wonder if the medical staff should of picked it up. If there's any of them left...

    This is...******, I don't know, it just feels wrong to be expecting Pompey to carry on after all this...but it's not my decision, is it? ****** Scudamore, Gaydamak and whoever is responsible for this. You deserve better, all of you on VitalPompey.

    we will carry on DubaiSpur because we are pompey, we have a 'never say die' mentality so we will fight on until the end, no matter who kicks us, knocks us down, pushes us down again - we will keep getting back up!

    i was wondering the same, well about what medical staff were left - we have belhadj being treated by algerian staff, ben-haim by the isreali staff. who exactly do we have left treating ours? then again they probably have too many to treat!
    it 'probably' did not help with him already having an ankle injury, but i am not sure we can blame anyone for this, grant said the herminator wanted to fight on...

    I know Boateng was whinging like mad about the Pompey medical team but you can't help thinking there was something in that. If I were the Algerian national manager, I might fear that Pompey's medical room ran to a camp bed, a box of aspirin and a wet sponge. As for achilles tendons, they can just snap for no apparent reason.

    Ah but those wet sponges - they do miracles! They should have them in hospitals.

    I am pretty sure we will see Herman playing for us next season, alongside James. These two will be are stars to build the team around and fight for promotion!

    like i say Malta i think that the herminator would be a very important player for us, so it is vital that he gets fit and earns a new deal - i too 'could' see jamo staying if he is offered the chance and could also see him dropping 50% off his wages in order to do this...
