'If It's Football, It's Vital'

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.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

    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!
