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

Doing the right thing

Morally Pompey are doing the right thing in allowing two former players to continue to use our facilities to build up their fitness as they battle back from injuries, although really we do not have to do this.

Is it the right thing to do?

Well, that is down to the individual to decide...

For what it is worth it is my opinion though that it will - well it should anyway - only do the club even more favours as we continue to raise our profile and portray ourselves in a gleaming light after all the 'dark years' at Fratton.

Andy Awford has again today reiterated in the News that even though Marcos Painter and Josh Warren are now both officially out of contract he views it as our 'duty of care' to get them right before the move on to other clubs.

Like I say, and as AA did, 'morally' we should do this but on the flip side you are getting players in the best possible shape for someone else to benefit from this...

If you were to be harsh, in what is often a harsh and cruel world, you would now wish them well and show them the door - I am certain that many a club would do this, as even though they are not drawing a wage any longer they are taking up club time, working in areas that others might want to and with physio's that could spend time with others.

We are 'doing the right thing' though.

I feel better about Portsmouth Football Club knowing that we are doing this as it makes me feel prouder about this club and my pride in PFC has risen to an all time high I think in recent years after previously hitting rock bottom...

Alfei an opponent

Last season we had Danny Alfie on loan at Fratton but the return to Fratton the Swansea man will undertake this season will be as a returnee as he has secured a loan with league two rivals Northampton.

Quite right too!!

Agree Dave, and like I say I am happy that we have done this and do think that it was the ight thing to do but it could easily be added that we do not really need to do this any longer with their contracts ending for someone else to benefit... just saying!
