Nugent wants to stay with Pompey

Nugent wants to stay with Pompey

David Nugent has confirmed to sky sports news that he is happy and wants to stay to prove that he is good enough to play for Pompey, as well as England 'I am happy at Portsmouth. I don't want to leave, I've never wanted to leave.

'I am happy to compete for my place and try and get this club into Europe.

'I understand I am going to have to fight hard to get a place in the team but I am prepared to do that.

'I want to prove to Harry Redknapp and Steve McClaren that I am good enough to play for this club and my country'.

That will do me, this is all I wanted and had to hear.

If I did not like the fella before, which I did, I certainly do even more now as he has only upped his estimations in my mind by deciding he does not want to take the easy way out by moving on.

We have said all along, well the vast majority anyway, that Nugent will be a big hit with Pompey, not just this season, but in the long run, so although this does not necessarily mean this is the end of the matter it should be, so his goal against Leeds can now hopefully be the first of many for this club.

Harry Redknapp said it was up to Nugent what he did, he has made his feelings known, so now we will find out if it really was up to Nugent what happened.

So, this is hopefully one player kept that we wanted kept, now it is time to see if the others, such as Matty Taylor and Gary O'Neil - for example - are allowed to remain here as well.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Lets hope thats the end of it then, to see his face when he scored last night was almost worth the admission money in it'self. I think that he could be the 15 goal man Harry's looking for anyway, if he keeps getting into the rigt positions the goals will come.

im made up that he wants to take this route - he could have easy thought 'sod this im off', but he wants to be here so that will make him loved even more. yep, it should be the end of the matter now, 'arry said it was up to him, he has made his decision, end of really isnt it... you would hope!

Who knows what goes on in HR's head. This i feel sure won't be the end of this and I think arry still wants another striker. With apprently no funds available, expect Matty, GOn to be the sacrificial lambs.

as much as i would like another striker - why not just see how we go until january? there will still be players, quality footballers at that, available then wont there? we can hopefully be in a good position too, to make attracting players even easier...

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.

Debut delight...kind of!

It wasn't a result, and in many ways a performance, for Sheff United loanee Freeman to remember too fondly as he didn't really have a great game against Orient? Then again who did!
