Merson Return? Bond Leaves, Jamie...

Merson Return? Bond Leaves, Jamie...


Kevin Bond has left Pompey (again!), this time it`s for money. Pompey where only willing to offer a one year deal to Bond.

Kevin Bond said, 'It's mixed emotions, having to leave Portsmouth,' admitted Bond. 'Newcastle have been huge under-achievers and there are great expectation levels.

'That in itself is going to be a pressure, but it is definitely one that I am really looking forward to.'

'Probably the biggest decision that I faced was leaving Harry Redknapp,' added Bond.

'Harry has been absolutely fantastic to me over the last six or seven years.

'He told me he was disappointed to be losing me, but he understood that it is an exciting challenge for me.'

Jamie Redknapp is not hot favourite to come in as he has delayed signing a lucrative contract with Sky Sports. Another possibility could be Paul Merson! (You never know haha)

I think having Merson as a number 2 would be great. He has a great passion for the game and knows what portsmouth is all about

Like Merson a lot and he does not what Pompey are all about, however I think the one person that can really get through to HR is Jamie, come on son, join up!

How does Merson not know about portsmouth danonash, he was the main reason we got into the premiership. And he is a good friend of Harry

Linvoy, i understand why you'd want him but...... what we need, not unlike players in too... is an experienced coach. We cant just put people in there who have no previous experience. Agrre him & jamie would have a lot to offer a head coach though.
