Lately we have been hearing about the Greek Tragedy that concerns Pompey and Gekas.
After examining the situation, I can suggest that it was another Adams’ fiasco, and therefore we should add it to the dissertation entitled: ‘Tony Adams, The Collection of Tragedy Dramas’, which were written while he had Pompey under his reigns.
The reason why I am adding this new chapter is because he brought in Gekas instead of Saviola, only because, at least we were given the impression, the Real Madrid’s ‘rabbit’ was not match-fit, and Portsmouth needed someone who can fit in directly. Adams said that Saviola does not know the English game as he hasn’t played it before, and wasn’t ready to take the risk to get him in and embark a negative impact.
So then he opted for Gekas, a Greek who enjoyed his last Bundesliga experience sitting on a cold German subs’ bench watching others playing rather then getting the match practice, the match fitness that has suggested the Portsmouth transfer.
So, the questions are these: ‘Was he, or wasn’t he fit to come in and make a direct impact?’ Why did Adams expect that Gekas can settle in England and Saviola could not have made it?
Well, some might argue that Gekas did make a huge impact, of course he did … making a fool out of himself and trying to disrespect the man who is now preoccupied with Pompey matters, Paul Hart.
Whatever the answers might be, Gekas isn’t any fit to play very soon. This is what it seems like. Is Gekas another Saviola then?
