Plum Portsmouth Job Awaits Somebody


Former Newcastle United and Bolton Wanderers manager Sam Allardyce will certainly be interested in the now vacant Portsmouth job.



Sam Allardyce – no doubt will be after Pompey position

Sam has been out of work since being sacked by Newcastle United last January, and certainly has the experience to take the Portsmouth job and do a good job there. The thing that probably counts against Big Sam, is the style of football his sides play, which is hardly attractive, and is one of the main reasons Mike Ashley sacked him at Newcastle United.

Another manager also likely to apply for the job is out of work former Leeds United and Aston Villa boss David O’Leary.

Portsmouth may also decide to give Assistant Manager Tony Adams a shot at the job, and no doubt recently sacked QPR manager Ian Dowie will also apply, but we don’t think he’ll have much of a chance after a poor record in his last few appointments.

The job is now vacant with the surprise move of Harry Redknapp to Spurs yesterday, and Harry’s already made a difference in London, with a good 2-0 win over Bolton today, which takes them to just a single point behind Newcastle in the league.

In Harry’s first game in charge Spurs have gained one more point than they had from their previous 8 league games – some statistic.   😀

We also wouldn’t be surprised if current interim Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear applied for the job too, because it’s no secret he wants to get back into full time management.  It’s a long shot for Joe but we wouldn’t be surprised if he at least puts his hat in the ring.

Portsmouth is just a great little club, in a beautiful part of England and also has excellent fans who fill the stadium regularly – a plum job for any manager.

Comments welcome.

    I hope Joe gets it, so we get a full time manager, and everything gets sorted out!

    who cares about pmouth!

    Tuesday is the game that decides our future!

    Win – anything possible
    Draw- Bye Bye europe
    Defeat- Bye Bye Prem

    The win will do us good and will give us spirit for villa and fulham so a potential 9 points, realisticly about 6 or 7!

    Howay the lads

    I wouldn’t say it was a plum job 90 Mil in debt has to sell players, Chairman looking for a buyer.. Arry jumped ship because he knew things were going down hill.

    If Joe starts with a midfield of Jonas , Guthrie Barton and either Duff or N Zogbia then we will win on Tuesday night . Geremi and Butt were chasing shadows against Scumberland and that left our defence exposed . We need the pace and skill of Jonas and Barton against WBA . If we get a result on Tuesday i really think our season will get back on track .

    ganiyu .. when martins got the ball what did he do .. many many times he lost the ball or shot .. now I think martins is a class player .. but terrible on sat.. ameobi was head and shoulders better ..we could have done with michael owen and ameobi .. I’m sure that would have given us the win ..

    Joe is a fool.pairing Xisco and martins would have done us good.Xisco is a spanish under 21 and martins is a nigerian international highly rated.shola is nothing unambitious.i have belief in xisco

    Joe has to play Ameobi because he’s the only striker apart from Smith who is suited to the long ball rubbish that we play, he wants a big striker to rough the opposition up..

    Expect some news on the takeover front this week and get your money on Shearer next manager.
