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

That'll Dindane do for me!

According to The News, who have 'exclusively revealed' the fact, Aruna Dindane CAN play for us on Sunday!

The paper 'reckons' that the clause in his contract, which was preventing him from playing for us again, 'stands at 22 matches' and not the '20' is was meant to have...

So, that leaves 2 games for him to play for us then - semi final and final eh!

Until this becomes 'official' it is of course not true, although if it is the case it is the latest in a bizarre run of 'strange occurrences' involving the Ivory Coast international since his arrival, in a season riddled of strange, to put it mildly, events anyway...

As I have said before, as have others, Dindane is by far my 'favourite player' but another option is good by me and to be fair I guess 7 goals in 20 games is not that bad a record really is it?

Even if 3 of those did come in one game...

Great stuff. Was talking to the training ground staff today and apparently we look as though we will have a strong side available for Sunday. Only the injured are training today!

It's great but at the same time it's really really crap how useless the backroom boys are. Never mind, onwards and upwards

I don't think the club ever said he couldn't play - not on the OS anyway. If they knew he had one game they would always save him for the semi.

I didn't think you could surprise me anymore but you have. How can something like this happen?

Perhaps we cloned an extra one in a secret lab somewhere in a hush-hush MOD establishment. If so, can't we clone Jamie O Hara instead? Or Lionel Messi (call him Len Messiter from Wymering)

No Rug 7 from 20 is not good strikers get double figures; however beggars can't be choosers and Pompey are beggars. I don't believe with so many contract legal eagles involved that two games were miscounted that would be pure incompetence. I would suggest a deal has been done quietly behind the scenes, subsidized perhaps by Chan or perhapse though less likely the Lloyd fronted consortium.

knowing pompey hammersmith we would probably balls it up and end up cloning lionel richie, actually more likely lionel blair!

russ it might not be great but i suspect it is still better than a number of 'strikers' in the premier league this season when all is said and done...

I wonder if it was miscounting, or knowing he had a game or two left in him and saving him for said special occasion? Unleash the beast!

I agree with Rug 7 from 20 isn't too bad, it's worse when you say three of those came in one game. Still, he can hit the target if he's on his game, this is his last chance to secure that move away. Come on Dindane, Do it!

Makes you wonder about the DD process doesn't it. Storrie (ok)said at the time that the new owners EL Fridge & Co. had been through the players contracts 'like looking for wax in a fleas earhole'. Well if they had, wouldn't they have found out how many games he could play? Also with camera shy Andy at the helm accompanied by Storrie, wouldn't they have discussed this with Big Sam at the Blackburn transfer negotiations. Beggars belief! Anyway if he is available "Great News" for us.

@POMPEYMADFC- Well Daws and Corluka were meant to be training this week and havnt, king is said to be unlikely to start, JJ, Cudicini, Woody are long term absentees and Walker and Kaboul are cup tied! So we have no RB or CH and our CM is lacking!! Could do with Ohara playing for us really!!! : )

I think you'd find O'Hara cup tied as well Muller! Great news Dindane is back, things are starting to pick up for us. Just want Defoe to pull a hamstring in training and Crouch to bump his head walking under a bridge.

Thats why I said it in Jest TracyC!!! If they do pull a hamstring and Bump a head will still have Pav and Eidur!!! Personally I am hoping he will start with Pav over 2meter Peter!!!
