That follows bringing in Nathan Thompson, Tareiq Holmes-Dennis, Luke McGee and Brett Pitman during his short spell in charge at Fratton Park.

The Blues still need to strengthen in midfield following the summer departures of Michael Doyle and Amine Linganzi on free transfers.

Our Facebook followers and readers on portsmouth.co.uk have been debating who they believe could be sacrificed over the coming weeks.

Here’s what they have had to say...

Roberts will go and too honest he be on high wages and his legs are going a bit.

Was always going to happen if Cook went so better off letting him go if he’s heart not in it anymore.

Warren Hope

Roberts, Baker, Main (to go).

Think we’ll unfortunately need to keep hold of Davies and Talbot as we are a little light in the CB and RB department

Jake Meyers

Not Main. KJ sees him as Pitman’s reserve. Smith, maybe Roberts, Davies (if Tranmere still want him).

Jason Butcher

Agree about Davies, he hasn’t looked that good in the friendlies against non league opposition let alone against div 1 strikers.

Bring Jack on.

Terry Shiers

Main and Roberts definitely.

Terry Dearling

It’s got to be Smith and Davies.

Tony Layton

On that basis, and by his general demeanour recently, I reckon Gary Roberts is on his way.


Smith and Roberts and maybe Main too.

A couple of the kids need to get out and get games.

Roberts will be difficult to shift. Maybe a player/coach role with Pompey paying some money to move him.


KJ makes so much sense and is a joy to listen to a very good manager.
