Not our worry, but surely not?

Not our worry, but surely not?

Yep I know, as I say in the title, that is it not our worry nor does it have much to do with us as it is not our concern - you could also argue that as it is a 'slow news day' this caught my attention more, either way I found it fascinatingly interesting...

Although to be fair, as Jamie was our '9 times' player of the season award winner last season it is understandable that I, and other Pompey fans, would take an interest in the next steps of his career, right?

Anyway, Vital West Ham is reporting that Uncle Avram is interested in doing a deal that would take Jamie O'Hara to Upton Park with him, no surprises there then, but more surprising are the reports that this move would see Scott Parker, and cash, go the other way to Spurs: West Ham - Scotty Heading to N17?

Whilst I am a fan of O'Hara's, and wish we could have kept him, I am - and have been for many years - a big fan of Parker's too as I think he is a fantastic footballer who 'probably' should have gone to the world cup: England - Parker one of footballs 'nearly men'

Far be it from me to question Uncle Avram, and as said it is not our worry as it does not concern Pompey, but this, for me, seems a crazy deal?

That is from West Ham's point of view anyway, as I cannot see the logic behind this? The West Ham ed agrees with this although Spurs, and Harry Redknapp, though would surely be laughing all the way and rubbing their hands together with glee as they could offload a fringe player and with some cash too gain an England international in return.

Then again, seen as Redknapp has recently talked up Parker and O'Hara is destined to leave Spurs, with a reunion with Uncle Avram at West Ham 'heavily rumoured', chances are this is nothing more than media speculation on what is a slow news day for them too!

That said, I say it does not impact on us at all - then again perhaps it does?

O'Hara and Kevin-Prince Boateng are very good friends, so if O'Hara were to complete a move to West Ham this would be another brick laid in the foundations for The Prince to follow them to West Ham as well and with £5m in the bin from a 'possible' Parker deal could this come our way...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Parker was their best player last season. They have brought in a player so maybe they need the money to keep going.

tbh mate i think their decline set in the minute they let those leaches zahavi and mckay act as their 'primary agents', as they are going to from now on - these blood suckers will bleed the club dry, we know, and take them ALL the way to the cleaners, they have not been without their 'controversial', and sometimes 'questionable' moments either...

anyway, as said, i know this does not really 'concern' us but it is a strange deal but in a way it 'might' as o'hara going to west ham would make it more likely that boateng will follow...

Parker is probs the only West Ham player they should try there hardest to keep at their club.

It's got to be Parker's wages. Avram will want his own men and Parker could finance that, otherwise he might be stuck with Zola's odds and sods.

Or are Hammers closer to ruin, and more similar to our predicament than we all really know? We offloaded big names long before we appreciated the extent of our debt, and replaced them with lesser paid, and lesser quality players, but in hindsite we had no choice. We were muted to have £50m debt, we all blamed the media and laughed it off, we eneded up with £138m debt... Gold is muting they have £100m of debt and look to make a loss of another £16m this year? but going by our track record, that reported £100m could be near on double that? If so, is cutting waged by moving on the likes of Pake just a last stab at trying to put it right? Are they the next to go down the pan?

who cares, not me...what is a worry is the news a rival administrator/insolvency expert company is offering 99p in the pound repayment to creditors. I whole heartedly agree with this as long as Gaydamak takes a big fall in it, but the worrie is that this will only stall the CVA and load us with a whopping great points deduction next season. Also the thought of Brendan Twice failed Rogers becoming manager, or Paul hasnt got a clue Ince, or any of the other muppets listed. Its must be Cotteril or James or both. James because he is smart and will succeed any where atany thing, or cotteril because he has some talent. My personal choice would be Eddie Howe, but he has signed a new contract at AFCB.. West ham!...who even cares? Nowt to do with us lad.
