Taylor off?

Taylor off?

Matt Taylor is the focus of this attention, on Saturday the Daily Mirror was quoted in saying Taylor was in talks with Villa, this was after a similar story surfaced in the Birmingham Post the evening before. Come Sunday and its Liverpool in the running to nab Taylor, this time in the Sunday Mirror! Read into it what you will, but I personally find the Mirror to be very speculative in their football gossip, and we had all this last year with Spurs to be Taylor's likely destination. If there is any foundation to the stories, it would be a body blow to Pompey's ambitions if he were to leave, as he was starting to look like the answer to the problem left-side of England, maybe McClaren's continual ignorance of anything outside of his favoured clubs would be part of the problem? If so, Liverpool would be the destination as Villa suffer from the same blinkeredness as us, Gareth Barry for England anyone?

i hope it is all idle gossip, we have strengthened our defence, it would be a crying shame to lose one of our better midfielders, and an Englishman to boot.

What do we owe you for? I suppose you mean Mendes, you owe us for two dodgy penalties two years on the trot!

Matty Taylor is a really good player and would benefit any team, but wouldnt Villa be a step down? Im a fan but someone like him deserves 1st team football and I am not sure whether he would get it at spurs

Typical spuds fan, the world revolves arund them! Dont think Taylor will go, Sacha seems like a buying owner, not a selling owner as so many previous ones have.

I think it would be ridiculous to sell taylor. We are supposed to being moving forward not backwards. I don't see how any of these stories can be true. He signed a new 5 year contract with us a few months back. Harry won't let him go. If he does he needs shooting.

We'll take pots at 'Arry from the new roof at Milton End if he lets Taylor go.

Harry would be mad to let Matty go and I hope the press are way off with this. If we are pushing for Europe then Matt's definitely one we need to keep.

I think it's all paper talk. most of the movement has been into Fratton Park, so the papers have to suggest some movement the other way. Taylor is a name that their readers will know, so he's the one linked. been here before.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.
