Given our latest 'dilemma' it is hard to think that anyone is safe from being sold in the New Year when the transfer window reopens...
Some will be needed to be shifted more than others, mainly due to the size of the wage packet that they are picking up - Liam Lawrence, as he is one of the top earners at the club, is one of those that would top that list I suspect?
Going to Forest, to link-up with Steve Cotterill again, is something that has been strongly 'rumoured' although Lawro, as he told The News today, is 'unaware' of such a move: 'people are putting two and two together and getting five.
'There's nothing going on at the minute that I know about.
'You never know, I suppose. I might be one they might be looking to get out if the financial situation doesn't improve.
'Sometimes in football these things are taken out of your hands and if that happens, then it happens.'
Even 'if' Cotterill wants Lawro at Forest I continue to find it hard to see how this could happen as Forest are unlikely to part with much money to sign him - even if we literally gave him away would they pay him wages close to what he is getting here?
Nope, I would not think so...
Whatever though he says that he does not want to leave as he, and his family, are settled and happy: 'I'm settled, my family is with me and I love it down here. The fans are brilliant with me and I've got no problems.
'I would much rather stay but I just hope the club gets sorted.'
Lawro was fantastic in the first 6-months or so of his time with Pompey, although the second half of last season and the first part of this his influence has seriously waned with his injury problems also on the increase...
For me Lawro does not offer enough to warrant, when fit, an assured starting place week-in-week out so - even though it is somewhat refreshing to view his take on things - if it is possible for him to be moved on in January then I have to be honest and say that I think this needs to happen.
'Reported' wages of £20,000 p/w are far too much for a club in our current position, and are wages that should not have been issued anyway, right?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
