I don’t get this, so hopefully a Portsmouth fan can explain this one.
There have been plenty of rumours over the last couple of weeks about how Portsmouth are willing to use David Nugent as a make-weight in any agreement for a new striker – first it was after Portsmouth showed an interest in Yakubu (who’s off to Everton) and then it was when Portsmouth were rumoured to be after Nicolas Anelka.
And then there are rumours that Derby might be willing to take David Nugent off Pompey’s hands as well.
Now considering that Nugent has just come to Portsmouth I’m pretty sure that this is just hogwash, but what I can’t figure out is WHY this rumour has started. It’s not as if Portsmouth lack money, or that Nugent has had a fallout with Harry (none that I’ve read off).
So can you guys help out here? Why the silly rumours?
