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

FutÓcs flies off to the Foxes

MÓrk˛ 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 MÓrk˛ 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.

FutÓcs 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....

Any one knows how much money did we get for him in compensation?
