Dave Nugent, the premier league ‘superstar’ himself, has declared that he is staying in the top-flight next season even if we – the club he is contract to – and Burnley – the club he is on loan with – might not be, well we know for a fact that we are not anyway…

Even if he did want a future with Pompey his wages would ‘probably’ mean that this would not be the case, although he does have to remember that he is contracted with us and unless someone comes in – and it will almost certainly mean a wage cut – he might not be able to leave no matter how much he wants it.

He had hedged his bets already by only extending his loan with Burnley in January, and not signing a contract with them – he has been playing them off against Bolton since, and he sees them as his ‘way back’ to the big time methinks.

In all honesty I do not think that many people will be sad to see him leave, we would have but he burnt his bridges with us the minute he dared to slag us off! By ‘us’, I mean the fans, which he did…

Ok he might not have been everyone’s cup of tea but to be fair, on the whole, we WERE the only ones that backed him – 3 different managers did not, some maybe unfairly, but we stuck by him so for him to say we ‘never gave him a chance’ and he would ‘show us we were wrong’ did hurt.

Whatever though, as said I think he needs to remember he has a contract with us so Portsmouth Football Club decide if/when he leaves, not Dave Nugent…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
