Pascal Chimbonda is another name that has been added to our 'summer shopping list', with 'reports' saying that Harry Redknapp is at the 'head of the queue' for his signature this summer with Spurs looking likely to sell.
I would not be against his signing per se but I do not like his 'reported attitude' to be honest.
I know you cannot always believe what you read in the press but he does seem a bit of a mercenary to say the least! He is quite open with his thoughts that he will 'go where the money is' - if that is what he has actually said?
His primary position is right back, but do we really need another right back seen as we have one of the best right backs in the country in Glen Johnson. However Chimbonda is versatile and can play as a left back or as a central defender too so would give further options.
My main worry though is he 'will not come cheap' wages wise, so for the money we would have to give him you could not really see him as merely a 'squad player' could you? The thing that I would most like though is hearing 'what's that coming over the hill is it Chimbonda, is it Chimbonda' belted out around Fratton Park - that would be cool, but it isn't really enough to warrant a signing...
My own feelings are I am unsure on this one to be honest, it could have some truth, which if it does I am 50:50 on how I feel about it - but at the end of the day Redknapp is the manager so it does not matter what I think!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
