Saturday, Sunday and a part of Monday David James was off to Spurs to ‘save his England dream,’ something that I still find insulting! Not so much that he would ‘apparently’ move to Spurs but that the papers keep printing that he has to leave Pompey to ensure he goes to the world cup – I would be even more so if these were ‘really’ thoughts that James shared…

Well, in The Express today they have outdone themselves, as Fergie is ‘said’ to be planning a ‘shock move’ to take him to Manyoo in the New Year? They ‘claim’ that Fergie ‘will assess Ben Foster’s form and Edwin van der Sar’s return from injury over the next couple of months before deciding on James.’

With Pompey ‘already braced for a battle to hang on to James’ we apparently know that we ‘would be virtually powerless to stop him from moving to Old Trafford,’ although perhaps, if unlikely, he might not want to move to Manchester? That is of course if Manyoo even are interested?

To be honest I do not know what to think anymore, I think the best thing to do is just focus purely on the months in-between January and concentrate on them and push up the table – if James wants out so be it, if we want him out again so be it I guess as we cannot alter either, although I would say James could quite easily quash all the ‘rumours’ by setting the record straight, right? By not making it clear he is not wanting to go anywhere, and dropping little hints he could, it is doing little, for me, to play down these ‘reports.’

Although all in all, despite the fact that Manyoo are one of the biggest clubs in the world I would still see a move to Old Trafford as a strange one as I could not see much of a future for him at Manyoo beyond this season…

UPDATE

Peter Storrie has told The News that ‘reports’ linking him with either Spurs or Manyoo are ‘a load of rubbish’ and he is going nowhere: ‘it’s a load of rubbish, it really is.

‘David is under contract and it will be staying that way.

‘He’s happy and we are happy – David’s going absolutely nowhere.

‘We don’t need to sell him and we have no interest in doing so. People should ignore these rumours, that’s all they are.’

Good to hear, although we have heard the ‘we do not need to sell’ before… I would be happier if I heard these thoughts coming from Jamo’s mouth to be honest…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
