Andres (The Truth Revealed!)

Andres (The Truth Revealed!)


Portsmouth where phoned an hour before D`Alessandro completed his move to join Zaragoza. Peter Storrie has revealed Pompey had the chance to loan the player for another year with an option to sign him.

"We can loan him but it is still very expensive and the same comment from Harry, first he has to decide his options. Player and agent are asking for a lot of money loan or no loan and Harry is still looking at several other options in that position, we will have the final say." Peter confirmed last night. (Friday)

Portsmouth agreed to let the player join Zaragoza before there "first option" ran out on the 30th of June.

'When you start your football career you have various dreams and one of mine was to play in the Spanish league, which is the best,' explained Andres.

Despite the above comments the player did want to sign for Portsmouth and his agent rang Pompey asking them for the last time to accept the players and agents wage demands.

Peter Storrie revealed that the agent`s fee demanded was "extraordinary" and that Portsmouth would have had to have paid 100% of the player`s wages plus a further 20%, this would have resulted in the contract being worth in the rejoin of 38k a week.

With Pompey turning to Thormet as the answer by paying for one of the most rated players in France. Vital Pompey would like to thank Andres for the memory`s and wish him all the best at his new club. (Greedy Bastard!)

No one could possibly understand how much i hate Storrie for this. He says he is working for the club but he is driving other players away by making us look soo CHEAP! and NASTY! If Harry has been given this huge war chest to spend, why not splash out on what would be one of the signings of the season.

Huge war chest or not. The difference in salaries to DA would have embarrassed the majority of salaries to the rest of the team. Not a good move. I wish him well & thank him for his bit in keeping us up. Now move on.

we wont get into europe on 10k salaries. its unreal that one of the best players to come into the club in a long time and someone who was a breath of fresh air would just be shafted to some boring spanish league! although in defence, we need to establish the club in the top half this season to get ourselves a bigger profile to attract the right players and then get some funds out!

He was a quality player and I totaly agree with elmo85. But..... i'm sure there are other quality players available for a better price. His agent is very greedy which puts a downer on the situation. Good luck D'A and thanks for all the hard work you did for us last season.

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.

Debut delight...kind of!

It wasn't a result, and in many ways a performance, for Sheff United loanee Freeman to remember too fondly as he didn't really have a great game against Orient? Then again who did!

On this day in history...10th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 10th February.

Tubbs has left the building

Tubbs has finally left Pompey; perhaps his destination is something of a surprise then again there had been some 'rumours' recently of an Eastleigh interest.
