Chew The Fat With Chix - June 30th

Chew The Fat With Chix - June 30th

Another Thursday, another 'Chew The Fat'

As always there are loads of topics to discuss during this evenings debate and as is now the norm I'll be live and on line only on Vital Pompey from approx. 7:30 to seek your views and give my opinion on the events of the week.

By now you will know that I'm happy to discuss anything Pompey however tenuous, so just toss in the topic you want to chat about and we will take it from there.

But to get you thinking, how about..

Goalkeepers - This week has seen former Pompey favourite David James pen a new one year deal with Bristol City and Darryl Flahavan join 'The Cherries', but what about 'our' No1 slot?

We are told that Cotts wants to bring in some competition for Jamie Ashdown but will the introduction of serious competition spur Jamie onto greater things or perhaps (as seen so often in the past) will he become the No2, No1. Maybe you think we should have kept Flahavan or even James come to that! - Let me know your thoughts on who you think should be Pompey's 'man between the sticks'

Talking of No2's - Following the news that Ian Woan is set to leave Fratton Park for pastures new speculation has grown as to whether Steve Cotterill will now appoint a No.2.

Some think it's a role he can't do without, whereas others have the opinion that he has done OK on his own thus far so why change things! What do you think ? Should Cotts appoint a No.2? and if so who would you like to see sat in the dugout next to him ?

Lots of transfer targets speculated on again this week but the one name that made me smile was Robson-Kanu. .. Did anybody else entertain the thought that he could be the love child of 'Captain Marvel' and our very own 'King' - Wow, what a player that would make.

So on that theme I want your suggestions on which two players you would combine... The only rule being that at least one of them has to have a connection with Pompey. Can we knock a team together from your suggestions tonight? How about Tevez-Whittingham or Messi-O'Hara for starters!

Another thing that made me smile this week was Kanu's latest excuse for missing pre-season training again. I'm not dissing his condition for one minute, but come on! Did he not know that pre-season would be underway when he accepted the appointment? What's next? An excuse to get out of the pre-season tour!

To pre-empt next seasons excuse perhaps we can conjure up a list that 'King' can pick from for next season - Who wants to offer a suggestion?

Those are just a few ideas for discussion, but as I say every week ... It's your agenda and anything goes!

Those that have taken part in any of the previous editions of 'Chew The Fat' will no doubt testify that a lively discussion is always had by all.

So why not join in with me, 'on the spot' to respond to your thoughts, comments and opinions on the issues of the week, hopefully with a bit of fun, banter, controversy and maybe even one of my many humorous anecdotes or a quiz thrown in for good measure.

Come on log on @ 7:30 and share your views only on Vital Pompey

Alternatively, if you are unable to join in tonight but want to add to the debate why not throw in your thoughts right now? and I'll respond to them throughout the evening.

Anybody want to hazzard a guess at naming the player in the picture?
30/06/2011 16:34:00
Is it Geovanni?
30/06/2011 18:05:00
That's a good shout moley. You've got me stumped Chix but Giovanni did play with us on trial a few seasons back so it's possible we'd see him in a blue shirt.

Jesus .. There's just no fooling Sea Juicer ... That well known Irish International Noel Blake it is ... Again !
30/06/2011 19:45:00
Seriously though... Geovanni it is .. But can anybody remember (or find) his full name
30/06/2011 20:16:00
