Technically speaking – despite coming under the word on the tweet section – this initial debate took place on Facebook. However, the voting for this poll will be conducted on Twitter.
My views were based on what was seen from Naismith on Saturday when admittedly he wasn’t alone; the Scot didn’t have a good game against Charlton. In actual fact, he hasn’t been at his best for large spells this season. To make it clear Naismith isn’t the only one who has failed to reach the level expected, so I’m not merely rounding on him.
These are a couple of the Facebook replies I got to my article; others came as a result of views shared.
Mick Kimber: It’s a shame that all this stuff is going on. Because he has had some brilliant games and without his input last season we would probably not have been promoted. Okay he has dropped somewhat but to slate him this way is just not fair. Whatever happens he in general has been good for Pompey. Good luck to him whatever the outcome.
Glenn Brighty: The way he acted towards the fans on Saturday and apparently goading one to come on to the pitch at full time to have it out with him … he can do one! Awful all season. Disgusting behaviour.
Naismith, as I’d pointed out to be fair, had a huge impact on our League Two promotion campaign, playing a major role in Pompey going up as champions. His contract expires this summer and he has, as yet, failed to put pen to paper on an extended deal. As it stands the indication seems he’ll move on as a free agent?
Perhaps this will change? In the meantime, as we’re always looking for your views, we want to know if you think Naismith will extend his stay at Fratton Park? This requires you to cast a vote in the @VitalPortsmouth poll in one of ways given, which is a nice easy one with a simple yes or no asked.
What the poll is asking – Will Naismith sign a new contract?
Options to vote – Yes
