Gardarsson - Hermann will come back

Gardarsson - Hermann will come back

One of the most iconic lines from cinema is Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'I'll be back' from the Terminator films, so with Hermann Hreidarsson known as 'The Herminator' similarities are of course often drawn.

Although it is not The Herminator saying I'll be back here, it is his agent Olafur Gardarsson, talking to sky sports, saying that he will come back from his Achilles injury and that he DOES want to stay with Pompey: 'Hermann will come back, he is not quitting.

'He is hoping to be back in October or November.'

Gardarsson also feels that Pompey SHOULD give the 35-year-old a new contract as he wants to stay and he deserves this stay too: 'I think it would only be fair if Portsmouth offer Hermann a new deal as he has given them everything.

'We have not had an offer yet, but Hermann would love to stay as he likes it at Portsmouth and he loves the fans.

'I believe he can play at the highest level for another two or three years.'

To be honest I really do hope that The Herminator can make a full recovery from this injury, had this not happened I would be sure that he could have played on for another 2-3-years without a doubt, following this injury I would not be so sure?

His agent is also right in saying 'if you were in a war you would want someone like Hermann on your side,' as I certainly know that I would, and next season could very well be another battle - so we need experience like his around.

Although, all this said, UNTIL we have a clearer idea of what our future as a club is, and exit administration, then offering new deals to anyone is not really something we can do is it? Especially a footballer towards the end of his career that is recovering from a career threatening injury at that!

Like I say I really want the guy to recover, and would very much like him to stay, but it would be wrong for a decision to be rushed into at this point in time. His contract runs until the end of June, so he is covered until then anyway, by which time you would 'hope' our own future is sorted out, there would also be a clearer picture as to what his own footballing future would be so a decision could then be made on another contract, on reduced wages of course...

He would make the perfect captain. Always gives everything and never concedes to the opposing sides.

He's exactly what we need for next season. In my humble opinion an absolute legend. I had hoped to have a t shirt for the final with the Herminator on and 'I told you I'd be back' written on it but that can wait for next season.

Epitomises the spirit of the fans at FP, always gives everything for the shirt and dances like a LEGEND! (although surely assisted by a few beers that day on the common).

If he recovers - sign the HERMINATOR.
