The big mystery at Portsmouth

Why did Harry buy David Nugent, and why did he then not use him like a mid-table club would use a 6m striker (that is, frequently)?

Surely they tried before buying, gave him the ball and checked if he could shoot and run with it. A medical is standard procedure, right? If he’s not good enough for Portsmouth, then why buy him in the firsts place? How did he dupe Harry into signing him then?

So what’s wrong? Did Nugent shag Harry’s mistress on the first day? Did he refuse to give Campbell a backrub? Does he smoke and is thus in David James’s bad books? Did he develop a rash that stops him from wearing shorts? Does he really like shopping so much that he misses training?

Why is Nugent at Portsmouth? And more importantly, why isn’t he playing?
