Hartless Pompey Deserve To Go Down
So Pompey have parted company with Paul Hart and look set to appoint Avram Grant. How shoddy is that? Hart saved them from relegation last season and then saw his team sold from underneath him to repay the massive debts accrued by 'Arry. Yes they are bottom, but they have been playing with great spirit from what I have seen and have been punching above their weight given the meagre resources available. Most experts agree that they were unlucky to lose on Saturday - it is hardly Hart's fault that the penalty was more of a pass back!
Throughout, Hart has shown great dignity, pressing ahead with optimism despite seeing his squad torn apart by Storrie and the Board. Unlike Zola, he seems to have been employing the right tactics and the reaction of the Pompey boys after their first victory of the season showed that he had them pumped up and that they were playing for their manager. Dear God, haven't they won two games 4-0? What would we give at West Ham for a 4-0 victory!
I have nothing against Pompey but I hope they go down now. To give the guy a contract in July and sack him in November isn't just crazy, it is downright Hartless!
