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

Kanu departs, but at what cost?

And then there were three...

We are now down to just three senior players with Kanu's departure confirmed on Monday.

His 14-day 'notice to quit' was issued back along after his failure to return to pre-season training prompted a battle, well continued battle, between him, his lawyer and our administrator.

The final outcome was the decision not to return to Fratton, although Kanu has put in a claim for 3m in unpaid earnings!

Kanu's departure is another plus for Pompey but 'if' his claim for monies running into the millions is upheld, with a tribunal being asked to decide this, we are almost certainly done for.

So, that is another battle won; now we await the outcome of the next - which MUST be quick in coming...

As far as 'potential' player arrivals go Lloyd Sam and David Preece will not be among them as they have moved on following trial spells having been told that they would not be offered contracts, even if we get in a position to do so.

Appy has decided to give Luke Rodgers more time to impress though but will be disappointed that Simon Gillett has opted to move on and is now training with Forest.

If he's asked for 3M he probably wants 1M

And that Rug is the 3,000,000 question... Maybe its time to call Harry and ask him if he made 'THAT' phone call to Kanu, and what response he got 'IF' he actually did....

lets just hope that redknapp did what no one else has thought of...and spoke to kanu - with a tribunal to decide the outcome i guess not, or to little effect?
