Defoe is now receiving Death threats according to one reporter, the same reporter who accused Pompey fans of Death Threats towards Harry I wonder?
I find this concerning if it is true, but hard to believe for 2 reasons.
1) If I wanted the Mobile number of 1 person who is the public eye, I think I would find it near on impossible to get that number, as there is NO directory for Mobile Numbers… Yet this reporter states this is the 2nd Mobile Number Pompey fans have got their hands on, and phoned with Death Treats (Harry and now Defoe?)
2) The one thing ALL Pompey fans agree on, is the need for the players to show commitment, and WANT to play for the club. As Defoe has shown neither in the past month, then they would want Defoe to move on, I cant see any fan wanting to ring Mr Defoe, and threaten him if he leaves????? I am sorry, I do wear Blue tinted and rimmed specs, but this does not add up to me.
I think its more a case of Defoe doing as Harry does, and creating an issue from nothing to ensure the medias take on both departures is poor Harry and now poor Defoe don’t deserve this treatment from those vile nasty fans… The same fans Harry praised for years, unlike those vile and nasty Spurs fans…. How the tides have turned.
I read the Defoe Article with great interest today. He wants to leave to be with Harry as he came to us ONLY for Harry.
Cast your minds back to when he came to Pompey. He said he came here as Pompey were a club on the UP, and he needed to get his England career back on Track.
Cast your minds back to when Harry left (without informing Mr Defoe I recall?) He said he did NOT come here to be with Harry, he had been years apart from Harry since his West Ham days, so why would he follow Harry.
He says in the article he now WANTS to rejoin Harry, only came to Pompey to re-unite with Harry, and now needs to go to Spurs to be with him once again…. Oh and yes he also wants to leave as our financial problems have been made TOO public???? Excuse me that was by Harry if I recall, as shot across our bows when he chose to leave?
I don’t understand why Harry is so Hell bent on tarnishing our Club, and I don’t understand why Defoe is constantly playing the Harry Card? The best thing for all involved is for Harry to get his man, but at our price, and for both Defoe and Harry to cut out the back stabbing of our club.
Harry, you moan so often about other people talking about your club and your players, and it annoys you, yet you feel free to do so about our?
Harry, your valuations are always less than a clubs when you want to buy them, but those players are always undervalued when you want to sell them?
Defoe, go, by all means, but go quietly.
Bring back O’Neil, bring back Taylor. Backward move? Maybe/maybe not. Maybe we need to take 2 steps back to get players on board that love this club and not just a wage, to make 3 steps forward in the long run.
I personally believe neither of these players were sold for the right reasons anyway. Both Taylor and O’Neil condemned Harry for going to Scum, and he never forgot it. When the time came he could move them on, he did.
