Why Benji Could Not Return!!!

Why Benji Could Not Return!!!
I emailed him with my thoughts regarding Benjani on 30th January simply saying "Please bring BENJANI back" in the subject line with my email reading nothing more than "You know it makes sense all round."

Storrie replied to me this morning saying, "He is injured and could be 6 weeks plus off playing."

So there you have it maybe the only reason for not resigning Benjani from Man City is the fact that he will be out of action until mid March, so he would be of no real benefit to us in the immediate future.

There were disclaimers at the end of the email but nothing untoward is meant by sharing these thoughts, it was just felt that we are doing Peter Storrie a favour by putting an end to media speculation. He or office wouldn't have replied if they didn't think this would be spread amongst the fans. We're doing their PR for them!!!

So, an exclusive for Vital Pompey!!!

MFFP, so we buy someone who's crocked then - is that the master transfer policy. Jeeeeezus, you were slagging Tony Adams off for HIS transfer policy. Perhaps, now Defoe is crocked, you reckon we should buy him back? If, as has been stated by the club, we need players fit and able to play NOW, then what is the point of signing someone so they can take a place in the treatment room until March?

I just hope at some point that Benjy does come home, we really miss him, and what a different attitude than that sulking prima donna Defoe.

no surprises there really though. However, what I DO find quite funny... is that Harry was probably hoping to ofload Dos Santos to fund him buying robbie keane. now he's failed his medical...

Well we do need them fit & raring to go, though 6 weeks wait ain't to bad when we've waited 18 minths for Nugent to score!!!

I am sorry but I feel that may be a little harsh on Nuge as he only really has gotten an opportunity under TA. I don't believe he started a single game under Frank's uncle (in the league).

Frank's uncle nearly ruined Nugent - let's hope it not too late for Nuge to come good.

Well done Tim for finding this our and well done Peter Storrie (or his office) for responding .. Nice one fellas... It would have been nice to see Benji back but let's face it fellas it ain't gonna happen now surely .. He'll be 31 in August .. realistically do we really want/can we expect a 31 year old forward do do a job week in week out.. especially when he'll have so much to live up to..

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.
