I think that we have all know what the goalkeeping situation with Pompey is, along with the situation player wise in general at the club, and this 'seems' to have left us with just the one 'senior' keeper officially on our books, not that Liam O'Brien is a senior player of course.
The 18-year-old has been withdrawn from international duty with England at U19 level this summer, as at this point in time he is looking like he may well be our no.1 next season, at the very least the no.2.
The Pompey situation with David James is still not clear, although 'word on the street' has it that it is not only Fulham and West Brom that are 'said' to be interested in the veteran but a certain former Pompey manager is looking to extend his top-flight career at West Ham...
James' agent has said that he will 'have a chat with David' now that he is back from the world cup, doing so in 'the next couple of days' and then his future, and if this lies at Pompey, will be decided.
To be honest I do not know what to think - I had hoped, and even thought, that the 39-year-old would stay and help us next season as he seemed to be making noises that he would? After a good world cup, in a poor England side, if the chance of staying in the top-flight arises, as it seems it will, I 'think' that he would now take it...
We will find out soon enough, all we can do, as always is sit and wait I guess!
One keeper, shown the door earlier this summer, could return though according to 'reports' in The News as Jamie Ashdown's agent has said that no decision has been made on his future, although he is 'open to offers'.
So, a return to Pompey, 6-weeks after his release, could be possible but has not yet been discussed.
I saw his name 'linked' with Sheffield United the other day, so it does seem as though there is a bit of interest in Ashdown - who had, what is described as, successful surgery on his knee following his release.
Whatever happens, and whoever returns, or decides to go, I am sure that Steve Cotterill, and others behind the scenes, are working on things as 'back-up' options that will fall into place if/when the transfer embargo is lifted.
Of course I want Jamo to stay, and think this would be worth a lot to us in spite of his advancing years and troublesome injuries, but if he does not so be it I guess - the club, can and will live on regardless!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
