The Quay has come up with two interesting ‘links’ today, or at least built on them with something new on John Utaka and more on the Roberto Mancini to become the new Pompey manager latest…

Utaka has said that he wants to see out his contract at Fratton but is it said that Lille have ‘tabled a bid in the region of £4 million to capture the Nigerian winger.’

I know people say we should give the guy another chance but ‘if’ we have really been offered £4m, then a ‘mere’ £3m loss on our investment would not be so bad – so, I would say ‘take it’ to be honest…

As for Mancini the ‘reports’ on him becoming our new manager have steadily increased with it today said by The Quay that ‘Roberto Mancini is understood to have held talks with prospective new Pompey owner Sulaiman Al-Fahim and Executive Chairman Peter Storrie about becoming the club’s new manager.’

It is ‘said’ that the Italian ‘met with representatives of Pompey in Paris this week,’ some that the ‘word on the streets’ is backing up – although this talk could also be very wrong!

To be honest I do not know what to believe anymore, he is not a man that I expected, or even expect to take over to be honest – but I would not say no and further ‘word on the street’ is these rumours could well have some legs? Again though, these could be very wrong!

As always, and on both issues, time will tell…
