So a player chooses Wolves over us , all for £250,000 reputed to be the fee, and another has been,who cant get in Ipswich team is on our radar : or they::dont want,know doubt we will miss out on even the left overs, another striker has gone to Cardiff from Sheff -wed 6-4 some muscle that may have done us,why do people keep saying on here that the window is not open yet? no one cares some are rebuilding already , not us , how the mighty have fallen, snubbed for £250,000 from pompey were the hell are we going and with what?.I cant fathom out why when we have an owner with 2 billion plus fortune are we looking into the bottom of barrel seeing if any one is there .
Unfortunately we will not get any good players while Symons is manager.

For me its a good sign we havnt signed anyone or made any statements about who is leaving the club.
It all means that at this time Symons is not making the decisions and the club don't trust him to.
If he is still there on the 1st June then expect some movement then but I hope there is lack of activity because a new manager is on his way!

Why if we are to get out of this difficult division do we not offer a bit over the odds, no good penny pinching with dog and duck players its dosh down the drain after 13 seasons in prem we should offering up more than we are, ,what on earth did Wolves offer the pompey guy we could not?. Just who is Kit or the board after? i smell an utter farce coming up again.

Big Sam will know by Monday night if he has a future at Prest Ham

IF we are to get a new manager,I would have thought the deal would have been done by now behind closed doors.IF the new bloke is experienced and knows his onions he would be working on the phone by now trying to get the cream of the crop of players that are available for next season.IF that is the scenario those players have got to be a whole lot better than the ones we've got now,and that's going to cost a few quid.Seeing that Khan has already said that we've got to live within our means we can assume that there's not much money to spend over the summer.Which in turn means that -there will be no new manager,and any players we do get will be other clubs cast offs as usual.IF we follow that scenario all I can see next season is another nine bleedin months of mediocrity,especially if Kit is staying.Have a good Summer fellas.

For the past few seasons Allardyce and the west ham owners have always aired their dirty laundry in public.
Its a cert he will be gone Monday but he has remained tight lipped and quiet, I reckon its a cert he has another club lined up, listening to Alan Brazil this morning on talk sport he said Big Sam loves London, has a amazing home in Canary Wharf.
No other London clubs except Brentford have a vacancy and I cannot see him going there. Only other northern alternative is Sunderland if advocaat decides its not for him.

KIT is going no where.And will only buy players that will fit in at the cottage.So stop going on about him not buying players.More pie in the sky. Get used to what we got.

It's inevitable that behind the scenes activity has to take place. This coming season is crucial for us, and FFC need to be sure Kit is the right man to take us forward. Where he failed last season was his target of reaching the play-offs and to make the best use of the Jan transfer window to strengthen the defence. I consider any reasonable person would question whether he has the ability to build a team that would be Championship contenders this coming season. For heaven's sake, he's never done it before and nothing happened this last season to suggest he has that capability. Although I don't see Big Sam as our saviour, he does have the experience and know-how to make it happen, and Warburton is clearly a manager who can motivate players. But the best candidate, by a mile, is Mick McCarthy if we could prise him from Ipswich.

Paul, if Kit stays in his managerial capacity, it would be inappropriate for FFC at this time. He should be offered the option of staying on, though, possibly as assistant manager (a bit like Ryan Giggs who's learning the trade under Van Gaal). Why? Because he doesn't have the experience to lead us out of this division, and that's the bottom line. If he stays, it's a gamble not a business proposition.
