James offered player-coach role?

James offered player-coach role?

I have not trawled through t'internet for anything more on this but according to something that I saw on sky sports news David James has been offered a player-coach role?

Leaving Pompey is something that many 'hope' James does not do, although at the same time many of us have been expecting this - to be honest I was almost 100% certain that he would leave.

Whilst I am still not convinced that he will stay, the 'talk' in the past few days has become more positive, so you can never say never I guess.

The offer of a player-coach position was something that many also thought had to be on the table for him to seriously consider staying at Fratton, so 'if' these 'reports' are true this is what we have done.

Whatever the deal is Jamo cannot sign a contract, if he is going to, until the CVA is 100% verified and our transfer embargo lifted, which - if all goes to plan - is looking like being the end of next week, at the earliest.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Goes news if true and it probably means he wouldn't suffer too much of a pay cut either .. two salaries, for two jobs (net effect to Pompey = Zero.. he gets some training, and experience.. Cotterill gets a No2 .. everybody wins.. Lets hope it is true

This will be awesome if it is true, I dont think we can underestimate how much value he could be to us in the coming season

Win win Chix, your dead right, this is probably the only way they could justify going over the self imposed ten thou salary cap, pretty clever really, plus James likes where Pompey is, its easier for him, he loves the club, and theres no way he doesnt love the support, so I reckon its looking quite rosy

Couldnt find it on sky, they are obsessed with Web and Torres, however im reluably informed the rumour in the pubs near the ground seems to be the same. Jamo to think on it's options - unless your a news journalist and then its James to agonize about the decision

Chix is dead right for once!!! Jamo has so much experience to pass on to younger players it makes sense to hang on to him.

Well we can't offer him premier league football or wages, but he knows that and still came in to talk, so that's a positive for starters. We can certainly offer him 1st choice keeper, which prem clubs may or may not be able to. But this player/coach option may be our trump card - that and the fact that he likes Pompey, so lets just hope Lampitt and Cotterill are playing their cards right!
