Warm and hearty applause for Grant

Warm and hearty applause for Grant
I'm sure many of us and many more in the media can find dark and conspiratorial reasons why Avram chose not to face the press on Friday but in my opinion - and as remote as I am from it, feeling the way I do - I can see why he "just didn't want to do it".

And the man has my full support for "dodging questions".

We all know what would happen - we all know they're more interested in who ISN'T playing - so let's cut the rubbish and drop the routine. He's better of out of it - I don't imagine Mr Grant is going to let anything slip - he talks little at the best of times. And he isn't letting me down as a Pompey fan as I doubt he can shed light on any of the financial questions he was bound to be asked.

He couldn't have been more classy in my opinion if he had pulled a moony as he walked quietly away!

totally agree jim, i DO NOT blame grant at all for avoiding this press conference - he knows before he goes in what they will talk about, so what was the point, ***** em!

Upmost respect for the man, the press are not interested in the same thing as Grant which is football. Besides no one else is answering questions are they- rhetorical!

He was probably at Kingston police station watching Peter Storrie and Marc Jacobs being wired up to lie detectors to see if they were still working. (The lie detectors that is)

Agree. Let him get on with something that he has control over. There are too many pointless press conferences.
