‘Dave Nugent will sign a new contract to remain with Pompey in the long-term’, not my vote, yours – although these findings from pompeyrug’s poll are thoughts that I do not agree with.

Whilst I admit that Nugent has actually started winning me round, as I was pretty much dead set on wanting him out over the summer as he ‘annoyed me’ – to say the least – with his attack on us, the fans, plus I thought his attitude was poor, I do think that his actual footballing ability is not in a par with a ‘decent’ wage that he is bringing in…

To be honest I still think that if an offer came in for him in the New Year he would be sold on, that said I would think the package to him would have to be right too. ‘If’ he stayed until the end of the season then I cannot see him staying beyond this, when his contract expires so he would leave on a free.

Should he have a good season then he would have others interested so he would, I think, accept another offer made to him. Should the club actually decide that we want him to extend his stay then I cannot see the same money being given to him, and this may well be the defining factor.

Whatever happens if Nugent is still in a Pompey shirt this time next year I would be surprised – although it would seem that plenty of others would not…

  • What the poll asked – What will happen to Nugent next?

  • How you voted – Sign a new deal and stay 40%
    Leave in January 21%
    Move on a free at the end of the season 20%
    Not sure yet… 19%
