Different clubs, and for differing reasons, but both Hayden Mullins and Steve Cotterill both officially fall into the ‘former Pompey’ bracket now…

Cotterill left Pompey last season to become the new Forest manager but following a takeover at The City Ground he has been sacked, something that does not surprise me in the least to be honest.

But hey, that is not something that troubles us – I thought I would get a little something in about this though – what does is the status of more recent personalities at Fratton.

The anticipated departure of Mullins has come with The Pompey Site confirming his departure to Birmingham this afternoon.

A two-year contract has been signed by Mullins at St Andrews – who whilst not always a favourite of mine personally, or a crowd favourite in many ways, he did grow on me and his status among the fans also grew in recent years – and he leaves with my best wishes.

If Mullins, who will of course get his deferred payments, has indeed agreed to a compromise to allow him to move on that helps Pompey have more of a chance to live on then my respect for him has grown, if only others would follow his lead mentioning no names…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
