Futàcs flies off to the Foxes

Futàcs flies off to the Foxes

Màrkò the Mighty Magyar has decided to reject the Pompey offer of a reduced contract and after a rather drawn out process has joined Leicester City reportedly on a three year deal.

The delay was due to discussions over a compensation package with Trevor Birch trying to squeeze every penny he could out of the Foxes. Compensation was due of course because Marko is just twenty two.

There is no real surprise to fans but it is a shame as Appy had Màrkò pencilled in as a man to shake up League One defences.

He is far from the finished article however but certainly has potential but a still lot to learn about the English game.

Futàcs played thirty games for Pompey netting five goals - most of those appearances came as a substitute. His first goal came against Leicester in a live game on Sky last New Year's Eve - surprising how many players do that.

He was not however one of the big earners the club are so desperate to offload to enable the club to operate on a break even basis and allow a possible purchase deal to go ahead and the club to exit administration.

We await the departure of Reg Varney, Chuck Norris et al to allow the process of starting season 2012/13 to eventually commence.

Futacs was certainly not a bad young player, especially as he netted 5 for us on a cheapish rate, but he obviously had his sites set on getting away. No point in trying to hang on to him if he wanted to be somewhere else. Good luck to the lad....

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.

Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...
