Another month for Flahavan

Another month for Flahavan

With his initial 1-month contract coming to an end Darryl Flahavan has been handed, and signed, another month long deal to stay with Pompey.

When I saw the title 'Flahavan Extends Fratton Stay' I must admit I expected to be reading about a contract that took him through until the end of the year, or something like that...

Whilst I do not want to be too unkind to Jamie Ashdown, I must admit - despite him sometimes surprising me - I am not really convinced by him and whilst I would also not hold him too accountable for our defeats I think he 'could', not that I am a keeper of course, have done better with a number of goals we have conceded this season.

Given the fact that Tuesday night was a league cup game it would, albeit it few and far between, always be likely changes would be made so I am still surprised that Flahavan was not actually given a game as that would have, surely, been an ideal opportunity for him - right?

    I wonder if a dead goalie propped up appropriately might give the defence more confidence.

    I think the fact that Coles and other managers tried to get shot of Ashdowne speaks volumes.

    On this day in history...29th June

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 29th June.

    Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

    Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

    Solving that goalie quandary

    I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

    Pompey's attacking intent

    Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
