Knight returns!

Knight returns!

It had been reported that Alan Knight could return to Pompey for another spell, and indeed he has.

The Legend, who had a Pompey playing career spanning a mammoth 20-years plus, is back as our new goalkeeping coach having held such a role, following his retirement, until 2005.

His return is until the end of the season at the moment, although I would imagine if it suits all parties this would be extended when the season ends?

I know coaches and players are different, although it is interesting that a coach can be employed until the end of the season but player contracts are only month-to-month - long-term deals should not be dished out yet but it is a shame we cannot offer some until the end of the season...

Another former player is also looking for a return to Fratton.

Svetoslav Todorov has issued a 'come and get me plea' to Pompey!

What a player he was but I have reservations about a return for the 34-year-old for a variety of reasons, lets just see how this one plays out I guess.

So, The Sun was right about Toddy and a possible return, it was also suggested in the forum that the same report said David James could also have returned in a player/coach role?

That one is now a definite no-go, not that I reckon it had much legs anyway - and legs are something that I worry about Toddy not having anymore...

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.

Versatile former Arsenal man in on trial?

Deacon, who started out with Arsenal has been with Stevenage and Crawley with the latter releasing him at the end of last season. Cookie will 'run the rule' over him in pre-season?
