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...
#16 Steve Finnan
His injury problems were a worry for many when he signed, then again would a player of his ability and experience really have signed for us otherwise had it not been for this fact?
Getting injured on his first outing for us in pre-season was a sign of things to come, as he has been laid low with injuries for a portion of the season - although to be fair he has had a fair season, certainly growing as it has gone on.
Will he stay or will he go?
I do quite like Steve Finnan, so have nothing personal against him - in an ideal world his experience would be good next season, but given our position we cannot really take too many risks and I think the Irishman would be something of a risk as we could not afford him to be missing something like 50% of the games could we, which is what, roughly, we have seen this season.
He is almost certainly on decent wages, we know for a fact that we were offering these even last summer, so I do not think he has that affinity with the club to drop it to £10,000 per week, maximum, as I suspect he will get offers elsewhere, and probably on more money than we will offer too.
With him leaving it would leave us with a possible right back issue, although if we could keep a couple of players that are capable of playing in that position we 'should' be ok. He has doubled up to play at left back or central defence too, so he has been versatile.
Finnan himself expects to leave too, so that virtually answers this one...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
