Time for LuaLua to say goodbye?

Time for LuaLua to say goodbye?

Lomana LuaLua no longer has the heart for Pompey! Not my view, yours - although these findings from Sachas_Brother's poll are thoughts I regrettably think I now share?

The majority that voted are of the opinion that it is probably time that LuaLua and Portsmouth Football Club parted company.

In light of his latest 'reported' outburst - earlier in the week - in which he is claimed to have said 'In countries like Spain, a player of my talent would have a team built around them' and 'Everyone has special gifts and fortunately I'm one of those players that can do unexpected and unpredictable things - but that is not always appreciated over here.' This just compounded most people's thinking that is time for change despite the fact, much like myself, the majority like the fella and always have.

Obviously the final say will come down to Harry Redknapp and Sasha Gaydamak, earlier indications are that Redknapp is very keen to keep LuaLua - and if he stays I will obviously support this, as will everyone else.

How you voted - yes does not have the heart for Pompey 65%, maybe - lets see what the gaffer thinks 21%, no still has match winning potential 14%,

Current Poll - Harry Redknapp believes that England can still qualify for the European Championships in 2008, do you?

Is Redknapp saying this more out of hope than expectation or is he right should we believe we can still get there, 'Do you share Redknapp's optimism that England can qualify for Euro 2008?,' let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

A MESSAGE FOR LUALUA, if you do indeed read this - as russellm suggests players often do read comments on fans sites - prove to us your determination and fighting spirit to stay at the club you say you love and show us the talent - on a regular basis - that we all know you have. dont let this go to waste mate... we all know what you are capable of and all want you to be part of our future success but for this we need players that want to be here and that want to play as a team. if this is something you are unwilling to do then we all know what the solution is... time will tell what happens with lualua and pompey, but if you stay show us the real lualua - not the lualua were have seen all too much recently...

LL has had a tragic loss and some difficult times, some of his doing some not. TBH Pompeyrug as soon as the late night drinking problems started I always believed he (LuaLua) would need to move on so that he can move on, and spain where they dont really have the drinking culture that we have here could be a good plan for him. I also think reading between the lines of what he was saying during the week it's obvious that he liked it when he was the big fish in our small pond. Now he realises the proverbial pond is bigger and likewise the other fish he doesnt like it. Again if he went to a small spanish club like Levante he would once again be the big fish in that pond

He has a bad year off the pitch & that has the obvious bad impact on the pitch. He is only human after all. I think he does need to move on for his sake. Pompey has already moved on.

agreed fellas lualua certain is no longer numero uno is he and he does crave this... the tradedy of the loss of his son has clearly - and understandably - had a major impact on him and as i have said before, maybe even more so they he knows even tho he openly admits how much it has. it will be a sad day if/when he goes but again as you fellas point out for his own sake it is most likely in his interests to do so sooner rather than later...

With all due respect here, a lot of people suffer loss of children young and old - my great gran lost 9 out of 12 of her children in the early part of the last century - but still don't let their life disappear down the pan as a result. Am I the only one thinking we're kicking the arse out of this excuse on his behalf?

slightly changing the subject it seems Kanu has thrown down an ultimatum today. For me two goals in 4 months is just not good enough so i expect the wage bill will have a large ommission to off set against the expected adds.

Thats a very good point, because he is our top scorer, its easy to think he was better than he was. I think hes a great player & still has plenty to offer our team, but, theirs always a but, I would much rather see us spend the extra money he wants on a new young striker, who wants to prove himself. Nothing can replace that instinct of wanting to be the best, personnal I think Kanu is past thoughs days!
