This time I am going to try and break my report into three sections.

1. Those who I do not believe will stay anyway.
2. Those I wish would go away.
3. Those who if we receive a good offer we might sell.
4. Those who may stay.
5. Younger Players.

Those who I do not believe will stay anyway. David Nugent - I believe he would have signed by now. He would have to agree to a significant pay cut, however who else will pay him that much every week?

Those I wish would go away. Tal Ben-Haim - Please just resolve it this leach has got to go. If we can lose him on a free great 38k a week for stuff all equates to 152,000 per month extrapolate that over the rest of his contract.

Those who if we receive a good offer we might sell. Liam Lawrence - If a Premiership club offers around 1 million he will want to go and BC would bite their hand off.

Joel Ward - A deal like the one which saw Marc Wilson one move to Stoke will see him gone a real setback.

Hayden Mullins - Last year of his contract, another Championship club offering 750k+ with a four year deal will see him gone.

Those who may stay. Herman Hreidarsson - On a three year deal similar to Kanu's, with development into coaching.

Danny Webber - On a Two year pay as you play deal.

Daryl Flahavan - He is obviously happy with the terms of his current deal which must be within our current wage cap or he would have been gone by now on a one year deal.

Younger Players. The younger players who I do not feel qualified to do justice. I have never seen any of them play. However 16/17 year olds need to start to break into the first team for the medium to long term future of the club, even if it is as a result we become in few years time a selling club of whom other clubs clamour for our young players and we do not end up giving them away for a pittance like Nadir Ciftci this year.

    I think that even if money is tight, if there was some and the likes of Nugent left, Cotterel is capable of finding good capable players. The problem as I see it is that he currently does not have a clue as to where he stands and what he has got either in funds or existing players.

    Dedmans, Re Cot I think your statement " he doesn't have a clue" should've finished with a full stop.

    I don't see why people want David Nuetered to stay so much, as big Ron said once referring to someone else; "he's on premiership striker money and there's not much call for a non scoring striker these days, seems bad business for me". . . . . Mick Tait I also don't get your thinking for why Chan would sell LL, the man is a sellers asset when not injured or suspended; ie the owners need him at the club to Market it and and potential buyer would insist he stays. With respect mate, praps I'm a bit dense, but please explain why Chan would force a write down in the value he's trying to sell, for an analogy consider it like, you want to sell a knackered old car, you go to a lot of trouble to turn it into a viable reliable motor, you do all the body work and get the Polish lads round to polish it, you then decide, just as the buyer turns up with the cash, to stick a hammer through the windscreen; why would that thing happen?

    I think CSI will sign the club, Halford will be bought,Nugent will stay (I do not beleive that any EPL will sign him-Bolton or B'pool). HH will move in to coaching/playing as stated. Joel will stay as will Hayden...Promotion a realistic aim next season if CSI takeoever goes ahead, relagation if not, and Cotts leaving...and Martin Allen as manager

    russellm. Thanks for your comment, and i'm not being sarcastic. My thinking is that if offered LL would rather play in the prem than in the championship. I do not believe for a moment he would even think about moving to a different championship club. With regard to BC, well we don't know how much he pays in wages for him or if Stoke are still paying it, plus unless CSI or any other group have insisted he sells nobody, of course of this may be the case but we are unaware then BC can do what he wants and his past record is not brilliant. There was the money from the sale of Uslaka and Ritchie at christmas other than paying for loan players diis we buy anyone with this money between 0.5 and 1 mill I fully accept your thoughts though and you may be right

    Chaplin secured

    Chaplin had a contract with Pompey until 2018 but ahead of the disappointing Notts County defeat he extended his contract with the Blues until 2019.

    On this day in history...25th October

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 25th October.

    Another Fratton disappointment

    That 2nd half on Saturday against Notts County was woeful - absolutely awful wasn't it. The first 15-minutes or so of it was like a pre-season friendly to pre-season!

    Match highlights - Pompey 1-2 Notts County

    What a disappointment that was! The 1st half wasn't bad, in fact large chunks of it were good but the 2nd half was just woeful with a soft centred Pompey beaten 2-1 by Notts County.
