And how did they work that one out?

And how did they work that one out?

According to the Daily Mail - when it appears that he is saying quite the contrary to me - Dave Nugent has 'paved the way for a move to Sunderland or Derby' with what he told pfcTV recently: 'I've had a bit of trouble settling in. It's not nice being away from your family and being all on your own. But I'm getting used to it a bit more now.

'Sometimes you just need that one bit of luck and it can all change. When one flies in, I'm sure a few more will come after it. I just hope I can get another chance soon and hopefully get a few goals'.

How this 'translates' to paving the way for a move I do not quite know as he seems to be saying quite the opposite to me. You can read between the lines sometimes, but this is almost looking for the smallest of small crumbs...

I think we have all made our feelings perfectly clear and the vast majority of us would like him to stay and develop into the top class footballer that we do mainly agree he will be - be it here, ideally, or somewhere else - in the future.

As said in a recent article I wrote, he looked more up for the fight against City 'to save his Pompey career' than I had seen him before and he went about it with more purpose, not charging around like a mad man, he seemed more relaxed and calm not pushing things just taking it as it came, but also showed for the ball intelligently - which we know he can.

Okay, maybe he will go, but one thing that I am almost certain on is that he was not opening the door for a move with what he said at all - for starters if he was Pompey would not be using his quotes on the Pompey site or showing his video on pfcTV.

it winds me up so much... its always seems like the are happy to build something or someone up be equally - if not more so - happy to knock it down when they can... nuge wasnt 'paving the way' for a move away, maybe he will but this wasnt what he was doing here at all - completely the opposite!

The national press have really got it in for him, haven't they - they smell a story and they won't let it go. Glad to read those comments from him, and 'Arry seems to be backing him a bit more now - hopefully Nuge knows the majority of fans are with him. I'm sure it'll come good for him soon.

Trouble with the press - The Mail is as guilty as the more lurid tabloids - is that they try to WRITE the news rather than REPORT the news. Come on Nuge, prove the doubters wrong and the Mail can stick it where the sun don't shine (Sun?....No pun intended).

well, next two matches, brum and everton. he would want to play well agaisnt everton since thats the team he supports, and he probably wants to show moyes taht hes missing out, so hopefully, we will see a quality perfmance, him bagging a couple of goals, and thats him up and running.....hopefully

People seem to forget he is still only 21. To leave ALL your friends and family behind at 41 is hard, so at 21 it must be hard. Therefore i believe Harry has given him space, and encouragement to settle in, and i also believe thats why he hasnt taken the bait and responded to the news articles. Just a quiet work in Nugents ear to let them get on with it. But as for the media, its a disgrace, the lad is just that A LAD... for god sake its unfair to keep trying to derail todays young players. They kick them, they abuse them, they hurl abuse at them, they spread rumours about them, and then complain there are no players (English players) coming through. Well maybe if they got off the players backs, and let them develop in the teams, with the coaches and managers, and stopped writing crap, then maybe we WOULD generate some decent english players, and young enough to erform at international level without fear of being crucified. I believe we are building a young team for th future, alobgside the one for today, training, learning and practiicing with the likes of Cambel, Kanu, Lauren and James etc. Nugent will (Fingers crossed) stay here and be a real Pompey legend.

Midge, completely agree mate its easy to say that its the 'xbox' stopping kids playing football but with the crap that the media come out with its little wonder that talent wont come through, kids are probably terrified of what will be written about thm - in fact the parents are probably more terrified so they shield them from it...

yep, nuge is going to make it here im getting more and more convinced by the day now and sunday really showed what he can be about - i dont think he will start against brum tbh, as i think we will revert to 1 up front but i do think he could well start alongside benji against everton as i think we will go 4-4-2 at home more often than not now...

He will be ok, the more i see of him the more i am convinced he is learning all the time. He got a great reception on Sunday and i think he knows that we are really willing him to do well. There are not a lot of stories round about Pompey at the moment so i would assume that the press feel that they should make a few up about us.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.

Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...

On this day in history...26th May
