True, it's getting a little embarrassing now. I think it's a case of these guys initially thinking "Portsmouth? They're quite a big club aren't they?" And then coming down and looking at our budget, training facilities, youth setup, scouting etc and thinking "Errr.... maybe not".Not management but Head of Recruitment (or whatever title your club gives it). Our Head of Recruitment, Mark Thomas has turned Pompey down to stay with us. According to our local rag, those in similar positions at Forest Green and Cambridge have also turned Pompey down.
They’ve really not covered themselves in glory to be publicly rejected three times!
We're suffering for decades of neglect towards the basic facilities and infrastructure of the club. The current owners are trying to rectify this but it's slow going, with plenty of mis-steps and we have a long way to catch up on other clubs.
