Will he stay or will he go? #4 Aaron Mokoena
To be honest with you none of us really know what to expect this summer do we? We can only 'hope' that this or that will happen, so we only really have hope, right?
Clearly our priority is to see us taken over, and by someone who will hopefully 'do right by us!' Granted this will be a businessman or businessmen who WILL want some return on this investment, that is football for you! But they do not need to fleece us for all they can!
All in all, like I say, this is going to, in many ways basically be 'guess work' and maybe some will be more ruled by the heart more than the head, also A LOT will depend on things such as Uncle Avram staying or not I guess...
#4 Aaron Mokoena
Good lord did I, and most others, complain when the guy arrived - 'less than impressed' would be an understatement as would the thoughts he was not a 'crowd favourite', yet this has turned around to be fair.
With Aaron Mokoena you know what you are going to get, what you see is what you get - a fully committed professional, who will give it everything he has to give and will never shirk his responsibilities.
He is definitely the kind of player that I DO want to see wearing a Pompey shirt to be honest, and someone I feel we would NEED to be doing this next season too!
Will he stay or will he go?
Go, although I would like him to stay of course...
As I say I would REALLY like the guy to stay, but lets face it even if we might not have - and lets face it some still might not appreciate Moko - the South African captain WILL have offers come in for him as there is, and could be yet more after the world cup, interest in him.
The fact we will most probably 'cash in' on him, and many others, added to the thoughts that he will almost certainly be on 'decent money' makes it more likely to be the case.
I do feel that he would be willing to stay, and he could stand firm and decide that he wants this to be the case but history has proven that players are hounded out of the club if they want them out.
He would be an excellent outfield leader and fantastic championship player but I suspect a premier league, or European based team, will reap these benefits next season...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
