What does the future hold for...Mokoena?

What does the future hold for...Mokoena?

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...

#4 Aaron Mokoena

When he signed I was less than enthusiastic, although to be fair he has won me, and most others, over last season but this time round he has been poor!

'Mok the weak' has returned to the player I feared he would have been all along when we signed him...

If offers came in for him I would 'expect' him to be sold, or at least for us to accept but if he did, who knows? The problem is with him signing - and quite why I do not know? - a new long-term contract last year the ball is in his court and he will stay if he wants to stay whatever we want.

The clubs will not be queuing up for him will they, but all being well at least one, which is acceptable, will come in as I think it is best for all that he moves on. As previously said ideally as a straight swap with Wolves for Greg Halford!

I do no think he will move on though so his future lies at Fratton I reckon...

#1 Jamie Ashdown - here.
#2 Greg Halford - here.
#3 Carl Dickinson - here.

    Very very true, I was very impressed with his improvement at the end of last season, but this term he has been very, very poor! I'd keep him at all costs if he is anywhere near that form, but having him in the side, means conceding goals! I highlighted this with facts in my article "Talking Mok!". Stats don't lie!

    Be nice if he could pass a football occasionally!! Commitment is simply not enough sadly.

    A fractious relationship with thise defenders who can, an inability to pass and a strong commitment to extended holidays; enough is enough. Unfirtunately Rug has it right; he'll be staying.

    Malta, what stats are you talking about fellah? Which company; Opta or Sky? Mok the Weak's extended holiday and consequential dropping to the bench caused a winning streak, his return coincided with a run of draws and loss. He has made more errors than any other defender.

    Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

    The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

    Cushioning the blow

    Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.

    Swindon striker in 'Pompey's sights'

    Michel Smith, who was of course on loan last season, could return? He's still in 'Pompey's sights' by all accounts after Swindon informed him he's 'surplus to requirements' now.
