'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Thierry Henry to Pompey!

Thierry Henry will be tempted by a move to Pompey summer, not my vote, yours - although these findings from auntwallop's poll are thoughts that I would like to agree with, but in reality cannot to be honest.

Look at the image above guys, picture him in a more 'up to date shirt' and that is what some are dreaming of seeing next season - Thierry Henry playing for Pompey!

If the 'rumours' are true Barcelona are prepared to let Henry leave this summer and a return to the premier league has been suggested. As someone else said recently if he is willing to look past the old stadium, lack of training facilities - as others have! - and still holds the memories of that night when he ended up wearing the Pompey shirt dear then you can never say never as we have signed some players over the years we could only have dreamt about signing.

Could we afford him, would he want to come here and so on, just a few questions to ask but as unlikely as it would seem you can never say never can you...

What the poll asked - Do you think we'll sign Henry in the summer?

How you voted - Yes 48%, We have 2 hopes - no hope and the others called Bob 39%, I can feel it in my water 11%

Current Poll - Can we do the double over the Geordies, or will they gain revenge for the 4-1 mauling at St James' in November…

We are looking to keep our pursuit of 5th place alive when Newcastle come to town tomorrow, but can we keep our good run going or will it come to an end - this is what pompeyrug wants to know with this - 'Pompey v Newcastle?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Pie in the sky stuff.....although the calibre of player in our squad has changed somewhat since we last saw Thierry in a Pompey shirt, and if we do get to the UEFA who knows? Funnier things have happened in football (Havant scoring two at Anfield for example).

Apart from the transfer fee where are we going to get money to pay him each week and who will go to make way for him?

I'm not really up for a player who will think he's bigger than the club.

i always thought thierry was a very modest man, hence why he applauded us whilst wearing our shirt after that match, he didnt run off with his head held high and ignoring our effort. dont forget we have sol campbell kanu and lauren, who were all with henry when arsenal were at their best! could they persuade henry, at least he would know some of the team already. and as well as being the third all time preier league top scorer, henry is the top assist-er by quite a long way...

one thing that ive learned with pompey over the years - even more so in recent times - is to 'never say never'... ok, its unlikely that he will come here but you never can tell...

i think it was a good poll, not too serious, but not totally out of the realms of realism either...
spot on russ, dislodging kanu is a task very few will be successful with!

So we've got a rackety stadium, rubbish training facilities, the club is supposedly "small fry", and its only Portsmouth. But we have some big players here now, our fans are second to none, we have one of the wiliest Managers in the Premier League and consequently have had the best year ever! I remember when a certain Player had a chance of going toFulham or coming to Portsmouth last summer, he opted for Fulham saying "they are bound to do better than Pompey".............. We are coming to the stage when anyone looking down on Portsmouth ain't thinking straight. Come on you Blues! We're gonna get fifth AND the FA cup AND the most points we have had in years, Harry's going for a Knighthood and the rest of them can go and fry!
