As we walked away from Fratton yesterday one of my mates, who was listening to Express FM, said that it was being reported that The Herminator was 'poised' to move on?
Well, as I would imagine most have now seen, The News stated that they could 'reveal' this would be the case with a move to Coventry to be completed anytime now.
Last week I wrote an article about players having a new lease of life - here, and he was one of those I though 'might' just do that.
Then again I also said he was one of the least likely ones, from those mentioned, to do this...
So, one of the few surviving members of our FA cup winning side is about to move on and as much as I respect, admire and like the guy I would say that it is probably the best thing all-round.
At 37-years-old The Herminator has little time left in the game, so I would not begrudge him moving on to get this 1st team football, as it will not come here.
It also gets his wages, which I would still think are among some of the highest we dish out, off the wage bill and that will save us, I would hazard a guess, a minimum of at least £60,000 p/m...
With us, apparently, operating on a '1 out 1 in' policy then moving on someone that does not really feature in Appy's plan is the way to go, lets face it.
A new, loan, arrival this week will almost certainly come now.
Many would 'expect' this to be Joe Mattock although I am pretty sure that his loan arrival, which I am sure will come once West Brom have less injuries/sign players, is an exception to that rule we have to follow so a midfielder will come in?
