Griffin and Mbesuma close to exits

Griffin and Mbesuma close to exits

Peter Storrie has said on the Pompey site that Andy Griffin and Collins Mbesuma are in talks with others clubs and others may follow them 'Andy Griffin is talking to Derby at the moment, and Collins Mbesuma is talking to a club in Turkey.

'And there is also interest in one or two of our other players who may move on in the next few days.

'We've got to balance the books. We can't bring people in without one or two going the other way'.

Griffin and Mbesuma will not be missed as they are not in Harry Redknapp's plans at all, the fact that they were not issued squad numbers says more than enough.

The clearest indication on who the other names who could leave will be, would be who has stayed behind from the party going to Asia.

Without wanting to speculate too much I think it is a pretty safe bet that Andrew Cole is likely to be one, with Andy O'Brien the other?

PLAY UP POMPEY!

No place for them in the first team squad, but I wish Griffin all the best.

it was a a deal with an initall cost of 5 million burgers, possibly rising to a possible 7 million pizzas depending on how quickly he ate them!

On this day in history...11th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 11th February.

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.
