Grant favourite for West Ham job and more
Uncle Avram has been installed as the bookies favourite, with Sky Bet, to become the next West Ham manager - following Gianfranco Zola's sacking today...
His odds have been 'slashed' from 5/1 to 1/4 odds on favourite.
Uncle Avram continues to make noises that he does want to stay at Pompey but a lot depends on the off-the-field issues being clarified, which is, lets face it fair enough - I totally understand, and appreciate this way of thinking.
All we can do is keep our fingers crossed that he does not move on, but 'should' the West Ham job be offered to him he 'might' find it hard to say no to this, well he would find it hard to leave us, but his decision is made easier with the continued uncertainty surrounding the club...
Someone that will, without a doubt, soon be leaving Pompey is Aruna Dindane. Quite where he will end up remains to be seen though.
A medical has taken place with Blackburn, but 'reports' today - if they are not 'rehashed' or 'reused' are 'claiming' that an official approach from Wolves has been made to Lens and they hope to 'thrash out' a deal before the world cup.
Panathinaikos and a team from Qatar, who would offer big money, are also 'said' to be interested, although his desire to stay in England makes Wolves or Blackburn more likely...
A place in the cup final squad is not looking so likely now though as he is one of several key players that is facing a race against time to be fit for the weekend!
And in 'other news', as lets face it as important as this is it does not deserve 'top billing' as we are all so fed up with 'rumours, Roy Lloyd's consortium are going to 'make a decision by the end of the week' about launching a takeover bid or not following further talks with the administrators on Monday, talks are 'continuing' today and tomorrow...
It is also 'said' that our official approach for an application to play in Europe next season is 'imminent' - the application for the uefa licence will be made 'in days' according to The News.
