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

Mature attitude from Ciftci...will it last?

Once again Nadir Ciftci has said that he has no desire, or wish, to leave Pompey for a loan spell with another club.

The teenager continues to be sounded out for this loan spell away from the club but this is not something he wants and said that he has not heard anything - new anyway - about Steve Cotterill wanting him to do this.

Ciftci also said that he gets 'on well with the gaffer and we have a good relationship' with him not telling him he wants to send him out on loan, in fact what has told him is 'a lot about what he thinks I have in my locker.'

His progress into the 1st team has been a fairly rapid one, although this mostly came out of necessity. That said he has the raw ability to build on this - and Ciftci himself said that his 'progress has been really quick' and 'it's been different and something I've been getting used to' but having got a taste for 1st team action he wants more.

There have been times when I feel he should have been more involved than he is, at the same time I can sometimes see what Cotterill says about him and why he can occasionally be unwilling to use him - even so maybe a little more faith should be put in a guy who has already caught the eye of Guus Hiddink, and he certainly knows his stuff!

From the sounds of it Ciftci is willing to be patient, and fight for a place, although we all know that patience is not something that many have much of in football so how long the guy will be willing to play second fiddle remains to be seen...

    Seems to mr as long as he gets a chance he should play, with Kitsons recent performance ( last game noted) Ciftci should have had his chance, but it didn't happen. I suspect Cotterille is waiting for that comfatable 2-0 up scenario which with , Sonkoo and Dicko in defence Pompey haven't had.

    I have always thought he was a talent sincE I first saw him play. He deserves more than what he's getting at the moment but hopefully this is a sign of us being able to see more of him on the pitch

    Is it always such a bad thing for a youngster to get a bit of first team experience out on loan? As long as they come back. Although we do need a big enough squad to let them go, and we don't at the moment.
