Does Hughes' appearance mean anything?

Does Hughes' appearance mean anything?

I have just seen in The News that Richard Hughes turned out for Pompey in a behind closed door friendly at Reading this week.

Michael Brown did not though...

If this actually means anything, for either, is open to interpretation I guess?

You could argue that as they are Portsmouth players by contract that they should be expected to train and take part in, what was to all intent and purpose, reserve games - given their contract disputes you can argue for them not doing so as a loan exit is still 'highly' likely, more so for Brown it would appear, so getting injured 'could' prevent a move.

Perhaps Hughes was doing nothing more than keeping his fitness up, and the best way to do this is by playing. Then again perhaps it is an indication that he is willing to compromise on some sort of deal?

However 'complex' these contracts might be I honesty cannot see why an agreement cannot be reached that enables any clause within contracts to be terminated?

Remove this clause and then you allow them to see out their contracts, with the ability to play, because they get paid either way!

How can it be so hard to negate these clauses?

Unless you really do not want to...

We also included 2 'unnamed trialists', one of them scored the goal that secured a 1-0 win.

    It was a training match and they are obliged to go, if Brown didn't go for some redon not football related or injury then the club should fine him. Bubb the carribean young star was one of the triallists it was announced on sky this morning.

    If it wasn't our top secret transfer target that not even the back room staff know about ie Norris you might hear potty Cott'y crying.

    I know it was behind closed doors, but does that count as breaking our winless streak, furthermore, can we still have the 3 points we earned? As for Hughsie, I think it's a step in the right direction, but I won't take anything for granted until I see his name on the teamsheet.

    The scoring trialist was Bradley Bubb of Farnboro, he has scored 30 goals in the last two seasons, with 10 in his last 8 games this.

    Now that's a surname the papers would have a field day with.

    Maybe Bubby could join Pompey on loan, Farnboro could certainly use the money and he would be relatively cheap; even if we took him at his full salary and compensated Farnboro £5k a week it would still be way below the salary cap.

    A win at Wimbledon made sure of a play-offs place. Technically we can finish in the top 3 but this would require an unlikely set of results from too many clubs wouldn't it?
