What does the future hold for...Cotterill?

What does the future hold for...Cotterill?

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...

#17 David Cotterill

When some were not so impressed with him in the opening games I was, although not so now. For me David Cotterill has started to drift more and more out of games as his loan gets closer to ending...

In many ways I can see why he has a habit of moving on as much as he has as I do not think that he is consistent enough nearly enough to hold down a regular starting place that is warranted.

If the price was right, contract length and the salary, with all sustainable then I would not be against a permanent stay as beggars cannot be choosers and we need to get more numbers in this squad that we actually own - that said if we could look elsewhere I am not unconvinced that we could not find someone else of equal ability for less?

He has been on a par with John Utaka, just about, but on a fraction of the money.

It does beg the question though would someone like Matty Ritchie really have offered any less?

As I say I am not against it but suspect his future lies away from Fratton...

    lets not even get started on Ritchie cause i'm sure we could fill an article or 2 just on that lol but yea completely agree with everything you said about Cotterill, really good at 1st but has slipped recently but then who in the team has been good recently? not sure if his form isn't just because of the team's lack of interest or for other reasons, so as you said with the right contract and fee i'd be happy to have him here next season

    Have we got any squad size limits for next season, or was that just this? Agree with pompeym@ and Rug

    Been disappointing for me,started off ok and it looked like we finally had the tricky flair player we needed, but he's failed to impress. Dont think he'll be back at fratton next season unless deals for other targets don't come off and his fee.

    On this day in history...29th June

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 29th June.

    Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

    Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

    Solving that goalie quandary

    I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

    Pompey's attacking intent

    Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
