    We will only know if this is good or bad news come the end of the season, at least now CW has shown his hand by looking elsewhere.
    Does the Chairman back him with funds to strengthen a depleted squad in the next transfer window, or does his public vote of confidence not stretch that far?? We will see.
    Meanwhile, onwards an upwards to Wrexham, if somehow despite the horrendous injuries we can get through there's the possibility of a lucrative 3rd round tie, fingers crossed.
    CW did not "show his hand". The Club was asked if they could interview him. He went just like anyone would and now he has some idea of his value on the market. After all, if he stays, he has his own contract talks with the Club coming up.
    CW was told at the start of the season when he signed Mullins that there would be no money for loans players and he would have to rely on his youth players. Falling attendances cannot have helped that situation. IL has shown his commitment in carrying the Club's debt. We have to do our part by going to games and supporting the team.
    ''CW did not "show his hand". Your opinion, I saw it differently, by agreeing to be interviewed he thus revealed he's looking elsewhere. He might have very good reasons for doing so, and I suspect he has, i'm also sure it has been noted by the Board.
    The feeling I get is of a rift between manager and Chairman/Board, although we're at present sitting at the summit, a hideous injury toll threatens to bring us down- along with the alarming fall in home attendances. CW will have almost certainly been badgering the Chairman for more funds to strengthen his depleted squad- - So im guessing this has been refuted. So now CW has to cope with a huge loss in first team players fit and available, an possible loss of self esteem after losing out on the pompey job."

Portsmouth set to choose Richie Barker as new manager

Oxford Mail: Portsmouth set to choose Richie Barker as new manager Portsmouth set to choose Richie Barker as new manager

Portsmouth are expected to announce Richie Barker as their new manager.

The ex-Crawley boss is understood to be the south coast club's preferred choice to take over as boss according to sources.

It means that Chris Wilder will remain as Oxford United manager after he was interviewed for the position this week.

Pompey's seven-man board voted late last night on their No 1 candidate and it is believed Barker will be unveiled shortly, with Steve Coppell joining in a director of football role.
