Matty Taylor stay expected?

Matty Taylor stay expected?

Matty Taylor will not be joining any of the sides he has been linked with, he will stay with Pompey! Not my vote, yours - although these findings from jbaker's poll are thoughts that I would like to agree with, sadly I do not...

I find it increasingly hard to believe that we have any possibility of holding onto Matty Taylor now, once you make it clear to a player that you are willing to let them leave how can you expect them to stay and play for you - it just cannot happen can it?

We have accepted at least 2 bids - maybe more - but until we find a replacement Harry Redknapp has said he will not let him go, this in itself will only anger Taylor more surely.

To be honest, Redknapp might be moaning about not having enough players - if he used some that he will not this would not be such a problem - but the minute you start accepting bids for players, no matter how few you have you are playing a dangerous game so I say he has to let him go - he probably will not play him anyway so what is the point of holding onto him?

What the poll asked - Which team will Matty Taylor move to? (Hopefully none)

How you voted - None, he will stay (whoop) 42%, Bolton 22%, Reading 16%, Rangers 7%, Sunderland 5%, Spurs 4%, Fulham 2%, Other 2%

Current Poll - The Africans have gone, but which one will be missed the most?

The players that we have that are going to the African nations have now gone, but which one will be missed the most, or is it just the numbers that we will miss - this is what pompeyboy and tracyc - they both sent me similar polls so I just combined the 2 - want to know with this - 'which of the 4 African players who are leaving will we miss the most?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

Should but won't. Bl00dy shame but we must move on. We trust the right decision has been made by the club for the bigger & better picture. We will have lots of great memories of MT, from his early runs down the wing that set up so mang goals in our championship season. Those fantastic long range efforts at Nottingham Forest & Leicester. The great, great 40+ yarders goals against Everton & Sunderland, how one or both were not goal of the season is still a mystery. Other great strikes at Arsenal & with Newcastle. The important penalties against Sunderland & Wigan. For being part of the best Pompey era for 50+ years. Matt Taylor, we thank you, we salute you, we wish you will.

tbh mate i accepted some time back that his future would end fairly soon - he has never fully been one of 'arr's boys, but 'arry has a vision and this vision doesnt include matty taylor, so we just have to accept this and hope that it proves to be the right decision...

Well said Storagematt - can't add to that really. Except the tear in the eye and the lump in the throat. Good luck Matty.

a quick alteration to the poll to "will he stay" or"will he go" shows that whilst 42% say he will stay, 58% say he will go - its just that his location is not obvious at the moment! so in fact, this is a bit of a moan rug (im sorry) - the poll doesnt say hes going to stay, it just syas hes going to leave toone of many clubs!

as it is, it is painfull to see him go - and will be worse to see him put on anothe teams shirt - and worse still to watch him score, which i have no doubt he will! He was my favourite player all last season - and still is - something which i wont say about many players!

He's off and to be honest I can't wait... Will he,, won't he.. should he.. shouldn't he ... where's he going?... nowhere ?.. somewhere?... anywhere ?... Don't get me wrong i think the guy has been a great servant to the club and given his all (nearly) everytime he's played.. but the bottom line is that Harry sees him as surplus to requirements (despite what he says) otherwise he'd be playing... This saga is nearly as long as 'The Great Kanu Contract Debate' of the summer

He'll be gone soon, we will hurt for a bit and then he will dim into the memory bank, bit like O'Neil really
