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

What does the future hold for...Halford?

There can be few clubs with such a history of squad rotation as Pompey.

This summer, as with the past 2-3, I would suspect that 'most' will be wondering where their future lies.

Although unlike some other years some players under contract at least 'should' have a better chance of remaining where they are, as long as this is what they want!

If this is what they want, and it is a financially viable option for us, lets hope this is what they get...

#2 Greg Halford

To be fair most of the loanees have done well, but 'bicycle' has to be the most successful one, right?

When he came in I was not convinced that he was anything other than a full back - and was that really needed? - but he has grown into a decent central defender. I am not sure that this is a long-term position for him though.

For a loanee to say that they want to stay is always encouraging, so for him to have done this means that we are part of the way towards where we need to be.

I do 'suspect' that others will show an interest and with Wolves looking for, I would guess, around 1m at least I find it hard to think that we can match such a fee so I am not holding out much hope we will sign him.

Somehow convincing Wolves to do a player swap, for Aaron Mokoena, represents our best hope of keeping him I reckon, so at this point I reckon his future lies away from Fratton...

    The initial reaction is to move heaven and earth to sign him but he has never really settled anywhere since he left his home town club at Colchester - well he was born in Chelmsford actually. If he homesick? Or can he not settle to play consistent football away from his club?

    Nevertheless he has looked a really good player in his time here and can play just about everywhere whish in our predicament has been so useful.

    If we can afford it sign him up, pref with the 'Axe' going the other way

    i see steven Jorden has left the blades, who i think that i am right in saying chose them over us earlier in the year

    Wolves don't want him so to my mind he wont cost a M, he doesn't have to wait long before he can leave for virtually nothing. I think he wonders what happened to all thatearly years talk of stardom and international call ups, thatsaid has looked ok in a very, very ordinary team. If the club is taken over he will be on Cotts list so I think he'll stay; if Wolves can get there million plus we should wish him well; but Tick McCarthy has played his ability down so much I can't see him going for any more than 750k
