It has been all but confirmed that Lua Lua was not told of the tragic death of his son until after the African cup of nations. If this is true (looks likely) it is an appalling situation.
Lua has said he thinks he owes it to his team mates to come to training. This is a real tribute to the man’s character!
In other news Milan has said that his exit plan won’t alter if Portsmouth are relegated. Mandaric said: 'I've always said I would leave one day, but my decision will not be dictated by whether we stay up or not.”
In other news Dejan Stefanovic has undergone surgery on his troublesome ankle which kept him out of the Newcastle game.
Today's rumours include that Milan would walk if Portsmouth are relegated.
Lua Lua was not told about the death of his son until after the African Cup of Nations.
Lua Lua wants to move to Tottenham.
The stadium would not be built if we get relegated.
'Deepest Sympathies from everyone at the Arsenal site. It just goes to show, football is not the be all and end all, my thoughts and prayers are with Lua Lua and his family!' Rocky7
Thanks for your comments Rocky, goes to show that everyone has been shocked by the news.
“An extra big hug should go to the baby's Mum who not only had to deal with her loss but without the support of the dad - no footie match is worth that!' book_me_browning
Completely agree they should be ashamed if it turns out to be true!
'Awful news. Heart felt sympathies go out to him and his family.' The Fear
I’m sure that Lua will have received lots of support from everyone.
'A terrible story and I agree with you les I hope he hasn’t been rushed back into training.' Richard Dyer
I don’t think Portsmouth FC would do that I think that he wanted to come back to training.
Today’s top topic was, do you think Portsmouth will stay up?
'As a neutral I hope Pompey pull through. They have the kind of fans the Premiership need and an old traditional ground that we are losing in the top flight. Play Up Pompey!' cropped
'There is always a 'surprise' team who are pulled down into the relegation fight late on as well, so I wouldn't give up hope at all.' The Fear
A large number of you have had a vote on how many points you think we will get out of the next three games and when I published this article the results where as follows;
If the majority of you are right then we will probably be heading for the drop!
Tomorrow’s “Pompey @ 9” will be brought to you at 6 O’clock as I have other arrangements in the evening!!
The topic for tomorrows “Pompey @ 9” will be whether you think Portsmouth have spent wisely in the January transfer window? Get your views to me!!
