Another one bites the dust?

Another one bites the dust?
Another day and another Pompey player rumoured to be on his way out. This time the near ever-present David James is rumoured in the Express to be on his way out to team back up with Jamie's Dad.

The article states that we are to get ex-Chelsea back up 'keeper Carlo Cudicini plus 1 million. It remains to be seen however whether or not the rumours surrounding the deal have any real substance or are simply tabloid fodder to fill the back pages columns.

James has been solid for Portsmouth over the past few seasons however old father time must be catching up with him and, despite his recent declarations of loyalty to the club and intention to stay put, we all know that old Droopy Face does know how to get his man at the expense of any and all.

What are your thoughts then fella's on this little piece of 'news'?

Do you think this represents anything close to a good piece of business or is it simply another example of Dr SAF's clear out of any half-decent players at the club?

One thing is for certain I doubt we will be seeing much of Fabio Capello at Fratton Park next season...

Despite Jamo's pledge of loyalty I can see this happening especially with Niemi now on board. I've today taken the decision to rip up my four tickets for the Fulham game and send them with a letter back to PS advising that I plan to sue under the Trades Description Act. I bought those tickets on the premis that I would be watching a football team, the last few weeks have showed that this will not be the case. Pompey 3/1 with Sky Bet for relegation

Would love to take the credit 'City' but it was the landlord himself 'Rug' not me .. But a good shout all the same.. and of course as the other fellas have said in the forum. Welcome to Vital Pompey .. enjoy .. there maybe quite of few of us on here all with opposing views at times but the debate (as you'l know) is always civil and most members (I'm sure) would agree that they get as much air time as they want..

as for jamo going - lets just hope that he was serious when he said that he wants to see out his contract with us and we want to let him...as said in the forum there must be a reason why cudicini, who i do rate mind, must have spent the past decade or so as pretty much a no.2! jamo is still one of the best in the business and despite being a couple of years old than cudicini i reckon jamo will outlast him, and several others...

as for what you say bluedr, whilst i appreciate yours and everyone else's frustration - i feel it as much - i cannot understand the thoughts of 'ripping up tickets and asking for a refund?' we support the club, right? i do not see that as supporting the club? im pretty sure you have just said this in anger and frustration and it isnt really something that you have, or, will do really...

Anyway.. Beau's Grandad and Jamo - What is all that about! ... He can not be serious can he .. What will he want next Spurs to play in blue shirts, white shorts and red sock.. Jeez the man is a fool .. They'll be remaining their Ground next .... Blue Hart Lane... or even Paul Hart Lane !.. As for it being good business.. lets think .. Englands no1 v an ex-Chelsea reserve a couple of years younger that can not get into the Spurs team because of that clown Gomez .. Umm no let me think..

Every one keeps saying keep the faith, but I have now sat here for 7 weeks with my leg in plaster relying on the net and Pompey sites to keep me sane, however I have lost all hope, all faith and am 3 steps beyond suicidal( do not know what that could be called). Every day we seem to be connected to another one or two old ones( have heard tell that there will be a zimmerframe parking lot in the car park) Please somebody tell me that things will get better.
