‘Rumour’ and ‘speculation’ that Birmingham are ‘keen’ on Steve Cotterill has seen his contract situation at Pompey raise its head again.

The News today runs an article calling for CSI to show that ‘Cotterill is wanted’ and as such they should give him a new contract…

As I have said before with 2-years left on his existing contract why is there a need to do this just yet?

I do not see it as unreasonable at all that Cotterill proves himself to the new owners, and if he does that in the early months of the coming season – assuming he does stay? – then a new contract can be discussed.

Sounds simple enough, right?

Proving he is wanted does not, for me, mean he needs to be given a new contract – he has one!

It is pretty plain and simple really, again for me, he has a contract so this is either honoured as it is or he decides to take up an offer elsewhere. If he is content where he is then would he need the immediate offering of a new contract?

I would say no…

Or am I am being a tad harsh or unfair?
