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

Nearing the end of the search

With David Lampitt telling BBC Radio Solent that 'things are going very well and hopefully we are nearing the end of our search,' can we take that as meaning that a managerial appointment is imminent?

Plenty of names have been 'rumoured' although exactly who Pompey are interested in, even if they are interested in Pompey, remains unknown.

Knowing who these 'successful applicants', in as much as those that PFC interview, will not be known: 'the process is going well and we have had a strong field of candidates apply for the job.

'The process of indentifying our number one candidate is ongoing.

'We will continue the process privately and professionally out of respect for the individuals involved. We the board continue to believe that this is the right way to do it.'

One of the names that had bubbled away on the backburner had been Eddie Howe.

A number of people would not be opposed to this at all, and he is the latest to become the 'bookmakers favourite' so could a 'surprise', and it would be a surprise, return to Fratton really be on for the Burnley manager?

The other 'favourites' at the moment are Sean O'Driscoll and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so the chances are the appointment will be from these three, right?

I know which two of the three I would prefer, so if we could lure one of these two away from their current clubs - I think this gives you a BIG clue as to which two I would like - I would be more than happy...

I was so jealous of burnley when he went there, and now he might be here...Great news if it comes off..Knows the club and the area.. a good manager. ..he is even the brother in law of aan ex Pompey player..This could be a great fit..buy he should be given time... Ole for Leicester City then

Nope can't work it out mate, just can't fathom it - cant be Howe or Solskjaer as they are with clubs ..... DOH - goddit - Alan Curbishley or the other international manager YES it's him ! RICKY TOMLINSON !!!!!

Plymouth Graham.. sums up my thoughts excellently .. I'd be really chuffed if we land Eddie Howe !!
Chix
well at least there would 50+ applicants for the Burnley job if he does come..I still think S O'D has been seriously under estimated..from what i saw of Donny on TV they looked great last few years..BUT..I would take Eddie, knowing if he does well he will be off to a bigger club..
plymouth graham
I have just read this...so I would say its Ole then..if it was SO'D he would have started already..Molde get their point this weekend and they win the league OGS starts monday EDDIE Howe has moved to end speculation linking him with the Portsmouth job by insisting: Im 100 per cent committed to Burnley!
