It looks as though we're unveiling a new signing today.

The smart money is on the Shrewsbury RB, who's a freebie.

James Bolton in, Nathan Thompson out???

If the case, wouldn't be unhappy with that judging by the reaction of Shrewsbury Town fans.

Presumably means that Thompson is close to signing in the Champs for next season. Either that or he's been royally stitched up.

In fairness, I'm quite gutted to be losing Thompson. He does fall over quite easily, admittedly, but still an excellent defender.

I don't know what your opinion was Locky, but 12/18 months ago plenty of Pompey fans would have been happy to see Thompson leave. It is only this last season that he has stepped up and looked like a RB who could play in the Championship. Maybe another example of Jackett/Gallen making players better.

It is a shame we won't get a fee for Thompson, but that's the way it is increasingly going in L1 & L2. Teams are reluctant to pay fees when they can get a solid alternative for free by using the money on wages. We lose a RB, but get another one, both without a fee being paid.

BTW. Thompson is 28; Bolton is 24. Yet again, the Pompey MO under this management/ownership.

I think he's been steadily getting better and better over the last 2 years, particularly defensively. Think about some of those last-gasp blocks on the line, especially in the alst few games of the season. I also think that it's only this season that people have started to realise how good he's become.
