Nugent to lead Pompey attack?
As far as U-Turns go, the prospect of David Nugent now being at Pompey next season certainly takes some beating. Just a few weeks ago nobody would have put money on 'Nuge' pulling on Pompey Blue again with firstly Burnley being his intended destination and then after their relegation was confirmed the player clearly stated that he would remain in the Premiership next season.
I'm assuming that at this time he was relying heavily on linking up with Owen Coyle again at Bolton Wanderers. However, Coyle made his position known and it now seems that David Nugent may be having a change of heart and that life on the South Coast maybe isn't as bad as he first thought.
Personally, I am prepared to let bygones be bygones and accept the player back into the fold.
In my opinion, Nuge was always a little bit short of being a Premiership player but always gave everything and certainly quickened things up when he came on and in The Championship I believe he can be a success. And to be honest, if we were sat here now, and had never previously signed David Nugent, and then found out that Steve Cotterill had managed to make him his first signing as Pompey manager, then I'm sure that I would be more than happy.
At the end of the day, it will be like having a new player in the squad and one that should get his fair share of goals for the Blues. So I remain hopeful that Steve Cotterill has done enough to persuade David Nugent to hold on to that No.10 shirt for the 2010/11 season.Written by Dave_S139
