Just a few weeks ago Kelvin Etuhu was telling the official website that he wanted to stay with Pompey.

Today he completed a move to Barnsley…

This move was a move that Barnsley felt was a no go but they have today completed his signing on a 1-year contract with him a free agent so Appy has lost another player, and one that he did want to keep having offered him a new contract.

Keeping the guy is something I would have liked but – as much as we do need players! – I adopt a kind of ‘hey ho’ mentality.

This is of course a blow and disappointment to Appy though I am sure who is already working with his hands tied without losing those that he would like to keep, and realistically thought he would!

I appreciate that it is a difficult period for players, they cannot wait around forever to know what the state of play with Pompey is and will not take massive pay-cuts – surely he was not on much anyway though? – but quite clearly something has changed to make Etuhu decide to look elsewhere, what this was is open to interpretation…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
