'Arry on Shaun Wright-Phillips

'Arry on Shaun Wright-Phillips

Without fully committing Harry Redknapp has admitted to The News that he would like to sign Shaun Wright-Phillips: 'I haven't spoke to anyone at Chelsea. But I like Shaun. He's a terrific talent.

'I wouldn't know how much Chelsea wanted for him, though, if they were going to sell.

'Maybe they would want to wait until a new manager comes in.

'But equally they may not need a new manager to come in before they sell someone. I wouldn't know how Chelsea run their affairs.

'The player may want to wait until a new manager comes in and have a look at things then.

'But maybe he would look at his situation there and think he wanted to leave.

'Of course he's the type of player I would love to have, though. He's an excellent player.'

Some think that we do not have the reported £10m transfer fee it would cost to sign him, but the chances are we will spend at least £30m this summer I reckon - around two thirds of this could be used to sign Wright-Phillips and Peter Crouch perhaps, but I think it would be money well spent...

I know 'money doesn't grow on trees' but lets show we mean business and make this move happen - we would most certainly reap the benefits of any such move I have absolutely no doubt about it.

The thought of yet another England international at Pompey is fantastic isn't it, or am I the only one excited by this?

I remember on Jan 1st 2007 when we played Spurs the announcer at FP said we have a special announcement to make at half time - and there I was convinced we had signed SWP... but nope, they announced an extension to the OKI deal... and here's me thinking I stand a good chance of winning Harry for a Day!!

We might have 30mil to spend but I wish we could spend it now. I can't face a nailbiting summer waiting for Crouchie tactics to unfold and for Chelsea's new manager to say ye or nay to Wright-Phillips. Am I right in thinking Wright-Phillips is tiny like Defoe? And is he British?

shame avram isnt still in charge there, he would of pulled a few strings to make him come to us, if we want him that is.

yep defi is another pocket size dynamo and england international.
i cannot say 100% that we have £30m to spend - that just what i suspect, but i would 'love' SWP to become one of these signings, which could happen with or without grant if he fancies us and reckon crouchy is a nailed on certainty...

Gandor - SWP makes Defoe look like a giant!

Agree with Gandor let's get on with it. Splash the cash and then put your feet up before pre-season training.

i think its clear isnt it that teh three players are SWP, crouch and Dunne. all quality players and much needed. i would be delighted if we got one though tbh. I cant see dunne coming here with tottenham ready to splash stupid money. but if dunne goes there, ledly king may be available?

Totally agree with Gleams, I would be real happy to see any of those three come to the club, I think SWP would make our first 11 complete!

Personally I cant see SWP or Dunne coming to us, and for that matter I am a big doubter in Crouch appearing

ye, but think about it, all three players are english, and in our squad we have 3 england internationals which is more then any of the other teams outside the top 4. plus the fact that harry surely is more appealing to work under then ramos.
