Simon Eastwood: Now at Portsmouth

The 23-year-old, like most players in Pompey's squad, has been on month-to-month contracts while the club were in administration.

But the future looks brighter now the Pompey Supporters' Trust has completed its takeover and former Bradford shot-stipper Eastwood wants to be part of their bid to climb back up through the leagues.

"We have some good players here and I think we could do well if we can keep the squad together," he told the club website.

"It will be challenging, but it's certainly something we are all looking forward to.

"It'll be nice to sign a proper contract. We've had a sit down and spoken about things, but I appreciate playing for a club like this."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
