Ashdown and Jordan sign...nearly

Ashdown and Jordan sign...nearly

Our future will become a 'little clearer' today, although even if we are successful in our case against HMRC they WILL, by all accounts, appeal the appeal with this appeal being heard on Friday...

Even so this has not stopped Pompey from agreeing deals with Jamie Ashdown and Stephen Jordan to become Steve Cotterill's latest signings.

Although these still need football league approval, so the race is on for them to be available for the trip to Coventry on Saturday -Jordan 'might' not be fit anyway?

Another 'said' to be struggling to be fit for Saturday is Hayden Mullins.

Not everyone's cup of tea, although his stature has grown in recent times with his willingness, without complaint, to play here, there and everywhere, and to be fair to a decent standard really after a disappointing start to his Pompey career.

Yep, assuming we keep him, I reckon he will have a good season and play an important part for us.

I think Ashdown is a decent keeper, although I would be lying if I thought he was anything more than this - I am sure he will do a job for us though, so welcome back Paddy!

As for Jordan if he can stay fit, which is easier said than done, I believe that we have signed a very good left back, so fingers crossed.

    A journeyman keeper who never quite fulfilled his potential and is very injury prone; much like Jordan and indeed is old Sonkoo. Back to Paddy, I seem to recall Ashdown flapping quite a lot and looking stranded as on a desert Island whilst in the middle of his defence. Still he's here and assuming we can fullfil our fixtures we will get behind him but personally I hope O'Brien is as good as we think he could be.

    We really had no option regarding goalkeeping options. But I still think that we didn't try hard enough to get a better one; Kingson for instance. He has set on Wigan's bench for much too long. I am sure he is after some football after his great WC. However, we have Paddy and we should support him, if not in the treatment room!

    EFL Trophy - Matchday One 30-08-16

    The revamped (if that's a good thing is open to personal opinion) EFL Trophy gets underway this midweek with the first group matches played.

    A competition 'not high on list of priorities'

    I dare say Cook's views on the Football League Trophy, EFL Trophy, Checkatrade Trophy or whatever the hell it goes by this season a large number share! We'll start at Yeovil tonight.

    Pompey MotM at Exeter...EFL Trophy at Yeovil

    The Pompey MotM from the 1-0 win at Exeter, which was (in my mind) a pretty dour game (the main thing is we won though), was a tough call to make but I'll go along with the top two.
