It appears that Admin Andy has returned to being the 'football oracle', having taken some time off from speaking about actual football maters recently, he is back talking about who 'is', who 'is not' and who 'might' be staying.
Today his specialist subject is Rocha John Rocha.
As we know he was one, of several, offered a new contract at the expiration of his old short-term contract at Fratton - whilst, at this time, he cannot sign it anyway Admin Andy believes that he is 'keeping his options open' in case someone, offering more money, comes along.
At 31 Rocha John Rocha may well be looking at his last 'meaningful contract' so he will want the best deal on offer, although you would also hope that he would want a deal that gave him the best chance of playing, which I would 'imagine' would be here, right?
I would be more than happy for him to stay on but I am not sure he will. Although I cannot, in some ways, see why it is ok for him to 'hold out' but it is not for David James?
He has 'apparently' been given 24-hours to decide his future of his contract offer will be 'removed.'
Was he not given this same ultimatum a week or so ago! Just image if Jack Bowers' '24-hours' lasted that long...
Although I guess as we only have the one registered keeper in Liam O'Brien, who I hope that we keep but I hear some 'mutterings' that we might not, so we do need to get this area sorted - and fast - so perhaps giving Jamo a 'slight' hurry up is understandable...
To be honest I retain my thoughts, as I have for some time, that James is off - as much as I would like him to stay.
I cannot see him, despite 'reports' to the contrary, moving to Celtic or Newcastle though as these moves seem too far away for me, seen as his family would be based a long way off. A club in London, West Ham or Fulham, would make more sense or one in the Midlands, West Brom, as the commute would not be too bad.
If Jamo really wants to stay he will, if not he will not, as said I think it is almost certain it will be a case of 'will not' but we will see. Well, in fact in all honesty I think it will be a case of will not for both players...
