Rooney another possibility for Pompey

Rooney another possibility for Pompey

For the foreseeable future, and rightly so, any player contracted to another club will not be coming to Fratton Park - unless a free transfer is granted or the player comes in on loan.

One such player that fits into the contracted bracket is Luke Rooney.

The Swindon man - no relation to the petulant, over-rated and overpaid England 'star' Wayne - is very much on the outside looking in at Swindon but he still has a year left on his existing deal, not that he is expected to feature next season!

Guy Whittingham has admitted that he is keen on signing the midfielder if he becomes available, although he knows that unless they allow him to leave on loan or mutually agree to terminate his contract there is nothing doing.

In all honesty I do not know too much about the 22-year-old, I do recall him being with Gillingham, and being rated, hence why Swindon snapped him up but things just have not worked for him at the City Ground.

As far as I am concerned it is very much a case of 'in Whittingham I trust', so if it does become possible for us to bring in Rooney then I would be happy to back the managers judgement.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Pompey Predictions League - update no.10

The Pompey Predictions League is part of this site now isn't it. Would it be the same without it? This continued with the defeat at Blackpool and will continue against Doncaster.

Vital Pre-Match - League 2, 1st October

The 2016-17 season continues with the latest round of matches this weekend, which will see us among those having a match in this upcoming schedule with three-points the aim of course.

Tollitt still has a Pompey chance

Well, according to Cook. He's insisting Tollitt, the former Everton academy player who had returned to Merseyside to join Tranmere on loan, can still return to Pompey.

Pompey win and lose collectively

As such Cook doesn't want the fans to start turning on individual players, which has been the case with Bennett with Smith not exactly viewed as a 'fans' favourite' either.
