James expected to stay at Pompey?
'David James will still be at Pompey next season', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I want to see happen...
I am unsure on this one guys, I sway back and forth on this - one minute I am convinced he will stay, the next I am not so sure?
The one thing that I do know though, I really DO hope that he is here next season. What a bonus this would be, and assuming he can stay fit enough I think he would be worth 10-15pts in the no power league next season!
On the eve of the FA cup final he was not being offered a new contract, Admin Andy himself said this, yet days later his 'denied' that this would be the case - despite giving the 'exclusive' interview on this, and other things - with James then being one of several revealed as a player offered a new contract, that said 'word on the street' has said, if I saw it correctly over the weekend, is that his agent has denied a contract being offered?
James is also 'said' to have thrown his hat into the ring as a possible to become our next manager, although again Admin Andy seems to be doing all he can to play this down but is saying the right things about wanting him involved in this process.
I do think that James would be happy to stay, and money IS NOT his motivating factor although with continued uncertainty surrounding the club he could well be tempted for one last 'hurrah' in the premier league, perhaps with Uncle Avram at West Ham?
Offering a player-coach, at least, to Jamo would enhance these chances of him staying though - I guess all we can do at the moment is keep our fingers crossed that England's no.1 will decide to stay and wish him well in South Africa this summer...
