Pack leaves on loan to 'free up' a place
Steve Cotterill has got his wish and sent another of the young players out on loan in order to free up a squad place, with Marlon Pack joining Cheltenham on loan until the end of the season.
To be honest, despite being impressed by the little I have seen, it is pretty clear that his chances of breaking into Cotterill's side are limited and I think that another loan spell would not hurt him.
That said with his contract ending at the end of the season and a liking for young players something that Cotterill is 'said' not to have, remind you of anyone, I would be surprised if he returned...
This departure surely does suggest that arrivals are expected as why else would we let a threadbare squad further lose numbers?
I just hope that these players that do come in actually give us as much passion, commitment and pride in playing for the shirt as the youngsters such as Pack would - if these 'senior players' offer nothing more then what is the point...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
