James off to Newcastle - Mirror s**t stirring!

James off to Newcastle - Mirror s**t stirring!
Today's Mirror reads: 'David James was seen showered, suited and booted and striding out of Fratton Park within 10 minutes of the final whistle after Saturday's FA Cup exit to Swansea which left furious fans asking questions about Adams' tactics.'

I can confirm that whilst waiting with my lad to see Crouchie and get his signature until about 1740, James came out at about 1720 in a relaxed manner to his car dressed in jogging bottoms and a polo shirt along with I presume his son? He then sat in his car for about 10 minutes waiting for the car park to empty a bit before casually driving off.

Totally opposite to what Mirror Sport is trying to portray!

well there's a surprise...nice to see that these big names still have time to spend with young fans. I remember getting autographs when I was a nipper and the excitement lasted for days

I've already posted my version of this earlier and his email address should you want to put him straight. I have emailed the "journalist" concerned. My daughter and I waited in the car park so she could get some autographs. She collected 14 autographs. Now, Jamo came out about 45 minutes after the end of the game (not 10 minutes) and was preceded by at least 5 others who played - does this mean they're all off to Newcastle? Sorry, but maybe he seemed in a hurry because he was *****ed off at being knocked out of the cup and had a long drive home to his family in Devon. By the way, you scumbag Steve Anglesey, James wasn't in too much of a hurry either - he signed numerous autographs and even chatted to us about the "injury" bull**** that had appeared in the press.

Pompey seem to be trying to rival Newcastle in the 'going down' category. We're well stocked for keepers, ta, regardless of whether Shay goes.

Well let's be fair - most Mirror readers' version of 'Suited and Booted' does mean a tracksuit ..... you sure the ten minutes he spent 'waiting' for the car park to clear wasn't actually him hotwiring Adam's new motor?

I said on the thread but I'll say it again, it's shocking what they will make up to try and get a story.

i blame Micky Quinn for this, he started this whole rumour thing on that awfull radio channel talk sport, which i assume from the quality of the show refers to the newspaper The Sport rather than any reference to competitive games---admiitedly the H&J in the afternoon is top top quality, and i like Danny Baker a lot but this show is ruined by his partnership with Stan the transit man Collywobbles.who equally played this up along with TA failings as a tactician

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.

Versatile former Arsenal man in on trial?

Deacon, who started out with Arsenal has been with Stevenage and Crawley with the latter releasing him at the end of last season. Cookie will 'run the rule' over him in pre-season?
