Well Claridge Is Looking For a Club!

Well Claridge Is Looking For a Club!

Stevie Claridge is a free agent 'arry... Our former striker is looking for a new club so Redknapp might have to turn to him if we can`t land anyone else!

Claridge, beginning life having turned 40 in May is still looking to continue his playing career despite having already turned out for 16 different clubs. This summer marked the first in almost 25 years that he has been without a club.

His managerial career hasn`t really brought him much joy, his player manager spell with us was short lived and his last attempt with Millwall lasted a mere 37 days.

There`s only one Stevie Claridge and if anyone can talk himself into finding yet another club Stevie can. If he is unable to find a club to play for or manage however he is said to be content to carry of his work in the media.

I`m sure Redknapp`s got your number ready mate...

Sign him up now! Let him play against Blackburn just so he can get 1000 matches on his cv. If he scores then all the better, if not let him go somewhere else. he's a not only a club legend but also a city legend. We should start a petition....

True he's 40 but you never got less than 100% from him. I'd take that over the occasional brilliance of other more skillfull players. but he's to old for the premiership unfortunately.

Surely someone out there will give him the chance to make the big 1,000 games! You can't leave him hanging like that. Once we've secured our UEFA Cup, more than likely Champions League place ;) lol we'll sign Stevie up if no one else has so he can make that last appearance and at Fratton Park...

Let's really be serious guys he is NOT good enough now for Premiership football. Yes a legend, yes loyal to us, even as a Manager but to be playing at the highest level again, GET REAL.

pompeygray, I say to you if Sheringham can turn out for West Ham at 40 and be offered a new contract then Steve Claridge could be signed on a match by match contract for Pompey this season. He is as fit if not fitter than Sheringham and is a proven goal poacher. Remember 1992-93 season when jim Smith brought in George Lawrence (Scummer) from Weymouth? He came on for the last ten minutes of probably the last fifteen matches in order to just hold the ball up and make sure the opposition didn't get the ball. It worked perfectly as i remember. Why not revive that role for Claridge this season? Come on you know it makes sense....doesn't it?

2016-17 Champions Review: April

Pompey had a 6 point gap and were playing as good as they had all season, but with 7 games remaining, not even the most optimistic fan could have predicted how it would unfold.

2016-17 Champions Review: March

Every season has its highs and lows. The draw at home to Morecambe was a body blow for Pompey, but little did we know that the next home game against Crewe was to be our turning point.

Done and dusted - O'Brien joining Coventry

Academy graduate O'Brien, who went on to play for Barnet, Brentford and Dagenham following his release by Pompey, will leave Fratton Park again - he'll link up with Doyle at Coventry.
