David Thompson has admitted (to the News) that he is currently fed up with the lack of first team football he has received at Portsmouth. The right midfielder has been unable to break into the regular starting eleven.
'It is probably the most frustrating time of my career at the moment. It's definitely the worst it's been when I have been fit. I've never been used like this before. I'm a bit-part player and it's very frustrating.
'I come in, train and work for a Saturday - but at the moment my contributions have been reduced to cameos and watching from the stand. Obviously I'm not going to be happy about it. I've been to see the manager and he says he understands and knows my position.
'I can't hide my emotions. People know when I'm down. I'm not a big-time Charlie, but I'm waiting for my chance. I don't want to leave the club - I want to stay and fight for my place.
'There has been talk of me leaving but it hasn't come from my side. I don't know if it has come from the club. I don't want to get off now and be seen as a failure. I don't want this to be the first club I've ever failed at. I've always achieved things.
'This club was struggling last year and I want to be part of the turnaround.'
'The longer it goes on, the more difficult it becomes when you do get a chance. You can do all the running in the world but it won't prepare you for Premiership football. I'm experienced enough to know you have to do the right things when you go out there.
'Maybe I have got to do something special like beat a man or score when I go on. It's a difficult time and I want my chance soon. I'm confident when I do get a chance I will take it.'
Thompson has made on league start this year, should he be in the side?
