Smith is one of the most frustrating players I have watched play for us.

When he does score - for the remainder of that match, he's a different player. He goes up 2 or 3 levels. An example of this was at Burton, when he scored early doors, then produced a superb performance thereafter. 

Have we had more of a 'confidence player' before? I cant think of one...

If I recall correctly, the Macclesfield fans said the same when we signed him. So its not just at our gaff he seemingly has this issue. Its purely in his head...obviously KC and our coaching staff haven't been able to convince him that he's actually a very decent player; the same can be said at his previous club.

At some point in his career, it might just click for him. But Id say that after 18 months, its now time for someone else to take that mission on. Its a shame and I wish him the very best assuming he does leave.
Hypnosis is the key my friend!

Now Harry, look me in the eye, not around the eyes, directly in the eye.
Harry, you are a good player. Harry, you are a fantastic player. Harry, you are not a donkey.
Harry, now I am going to click my finger...

Would like to see the club offer McWilliams a new contract now instead of waiting for the summer and risk ending up with another Oliver fiasco.

Looks like another KC punt, someone who had promise in the past but who hasnít fulfilled it. Hopefully will be as good as the last player we had from Pompey.

Welcome Bryn...

Safe to say Pompey are pleased to see the back of him. Hopefully he will be more successful here!

Wycombe fans loved him and Portsmouth fans hate him, so we'll see what version we get.

Another defensive midfielder and also had been out for a year with an injury .
the question is - how does he feel about playing right wing back on a cold windy tuesday night in Blackpool

Very funny  Roll Eyes

Is he available to play? He needed to be signed by 12noon.

My guess is if anyone comes in for Missilou he will be allowed to leave and it wouldnít surprise me if KC has said to him it would be in his best interest to find a new club.

I can't find any such comment(s)  Cry ?  In fact one Pompey Chimes fan described him as classy when described with Naylor. Interesting he was a stand out player for Shrewsbury* in their successful League 1? season. Apparently Shrewsbury where the other side in the chase.

* He also had a successful loan at Wycombe.

Look at the comments on the Pompey twitter following the announcement. 40+ comments and I've not seen a positive one yet!

Still fingers crossed he isn't as bad as they think he is.

It was only a couple of months ago KC was talking him up to be the next best thing....

i think itís more likely to be Watson told to go although the player does seem to be a challenge to missilou or MacWilliams - i hope we havenít had an offer for the latter which is possible .
Pompey do not tend to sign makeweight players to be fair and so he must have done something right before.
i am surprised we havenít got a right wing back yet unless Miller is destined for the poison chalice or he is reverting to Hoskins again .

Why? Watson is in the side at the moment Missilou isnít, another central midfielder puts him even further down the pecking order. Both out of contract in the summer while Watson may go too my guess is Missilou is almost certain to leave.

Standard cut and paste KC interview on a new signing, Iím sure he was saying the same stuff about Racic too.
