Would be an awesome replacement for Derry, but I assume that this is pure speculation....

Portsmouth will also listen to offers for Nadir Belhadj, John Utaka, Michael Brown, Papa Bouba Diop, Hayden Mullins and Aaron Mokoena, who are all on weekly wages between 15,000 and 32,000.

Jason

No no no. Not because he's not a good player (he is, and he'd be a great addition to our team), but because we simply can't afford him. The idea of us paying 15k per week for any player is simply not on. Indeed, it's probably at least three times what we should be paying any new signing.

As others have said, Prem players on the way down is not really the route we should be going, unless they're out of contract and willing to take huge wage cuts

surely there should be a wage cap in this division. No championsip player should be on more thn 10k, that's where madness lies.

Of course top quality players Speroni, Ambrose, arguably DESERVE more than that, but should not get that here, whilst we are in this league.

Mullins is a quality player, I see someone like Blackpool or West Brom or Forest going for him.

It would cause A LOT of championship players who are now loyal to their clubs moving on to be a prem benchwarmer or even reserve getting paid more. It would also leave a lot of championship promotion pushing teams unable to cope when promoted.

What he said.

Why are Portsmouth looking to get rid? Because they're all on big money and Pompey are trying to make the books balance in the Championship - not because they're poor players.

Would have him back in a flash if he'd take 5K a week though!

Jim Cannon
05-07-2010, 11:31 PM
Being serious now, I really don't know why being 31 is such an issue if we WERE able to sign him. One Michael Hughes was the same age when he signed and hadn't kicked a ball in 12 months due to a contract dispute. He was instrumental in getting us promoted and was one of our best players in the Prem the following season. If we got Mullins in on a season long loan on affordable wages I personally think he would add some vital experience to an essentially young side.

As a player, he'd be perfect. An improvement on Derry (by some stretch), and can slot into different roles where needed.

Whether he'd fit the new, sensible, just bloody lovely sense of fiscal intelligence around Selhurst is a completely different matter.

Of course, he's only being mentioned as he's ex-Palace...

sydnsteve
06-07-2010, 12:36 PM
Would be an excellent addition. Did not look out of place in the Prem, and I imagine that's where he'll stay. We could never afford him, but those saying he is not good enough for Palace are simply laughable. Suffered from being played here there and everywhere while here.

He never fulfilled his potential. He could have been as good as Rio Ferdinand yet where Rio worked hard but looked casual, Mullins was just sloppy.

If he had any ambition he could have had a long England career.

I think that's overdoing it a bit. Don't think he was ever had the potential to play for England. In fact I think he's worked very hard to have the career he did - a long one at Permier league level.

He would have been perfect for a Ferdinand type role if he was a bit taller as he read the game very well from the back. But he just never had the same level of quality as Rio.

If he wants to finish his career with the club who he has still played most games for (over 250) and where he started his career it would be a good move I think. Since leaving us he has been a pretty much ever present over 5 seasons in the Premiership with WHU & Pompey with over 170 starts, in addition to two and a half Championship seasons, all as a DM, holding role. That sort of experience (and familiarity with the manager....) would be a huge asset and would also help develop Marrow who seems to be a very similar player.

Flatly denied that fact that he would be returning as captain. Although I wouldn't count on this to be true, mainly because of the source that it's come from, but I certainly wouldn't discount it just because of what Dougie said. DF seems to hold his cards very close to his chest as he did when questioned about Glenn Murray.

Thishas been said a lot in relation to a few names that have recently been linked or suggested with returns - Bostock, Derry etc. I don't get it. I'm all for moving forward, but surely that means improving the team, and with that surely there has to be an acceptance that we've had better players in the past in some if not all positions than we do now? If we sign Hayden Mullins, a player with good Premier League experience as well as recent experience of our current division, an affection for the club and, above all, with more quality than we have on our books currently, then isn't THAT a move forward?

If Pompey paid him off for his final year he would be free to negotiate with a new club. We could offer him a deal as a free agent and try to temt him with a two or three year contract with all the usual get out clauses.

I meant that if Pompey done this for example, HM can afford to drop his wage demands for at least the next year if he wanted to stay on that salary and maybe sign for Palace.

So if he's on 20,000 at Pompey and they offer him 520,000 to leave (half of his years salary) they will also save this amount where HM can then sign for someone else on 10,000 a week for a year and still make his normal salary over the year.

Sums it up for me.

Mullins would be quality and exactly what we need - he would also be a good role model and influence on Marrow. Alex Marrow is quality and will play a big part next season, but as he's young and wont play every week Mullins's experience in defensive midfield would be invaluable.

I doubt we could afford his wages though, even if he did take a 50% paycut. Plus there would be competition from other clubs with more resources and prospects of promotion, or even lower premiership sides.

Formations come and go, they are in and out of fashion, as soon as a team has a bit of success using one everyone thinks it is the way forward. Becaise other sides don't use it is not enough reason on its own to discard it. It is what suits your team and what you can work well with that matters.
