Pompey planning 'sensational' Vieira swoop...

Pompey planning 'sensational' Vieira swoop...

...well so claims The Daily Star anyway! If that gives the 'link' any credibility?

The suggestion is that Patrick Vieira has been told by new Inter supremo Jose Mourinho that he is not part of his future plans so Harry Redknapp is planning a '£4m swoop' for the soon to be 32 year old.

Fair enough perhaps, but the paper went on to claim that he would be offered £100,000 per week in wages...

Adding, it was hoped his friendship with former Arsenal teammates Tony Adams, Sol Campbell and I guess Kanu, well maybe even Lauren if he stays and his friendship with his international colleague Lassana Diarra will convince him to return to England and join 'the Arsenal retirement village', as we are often dubbed...

What do we reckon guys, pure paper fantasy or could we really be prepared to pay someone that much in wages? For me it seems highly unlikely to be honest!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Yes I heard this, ignore my email rug. It may signal Muntari going to Juventus?

not sure he still has the legs for the rough and tumble of the Prem - more a vanity signing than anything I'd say.

If it's only in the Daily Star, there's your answer

I can't see PFC agreeing to $100,000 a week. It would only create unrest from other players.

If it was in the Daily Star then this may interest you guys....The league table of transfer rumours from last season. The first figure is the number of correct rumours published by the paper, the second is the total number and the % is the % that they got right (shame on the Daily Star and the Daily Mirror)...... Daily Telegraph 4 14 28.57% The Times 10 44 22.73% The Independent 4 18 22.22% The People 9 47 19.15% Daily Mail 9 49 18.37% The Guardian 2 11 18.18% The Sun 13 72 18.06% The Express 6 39 15.38% Daily Mirror 21 153 13.73% Daily Star 7 52 13.46%

Oh, and by the way, that league table refers only to Pompey transfer rumours.

Great stats Tim - that's why I read the Times then wondered why? Can't see HR wanting Viera really though.

Hilarious link, but to see us linked with players of this quality is flattering to say the least! That's a big old wage to pay though!

What a joke! It's almost as bad as the Telegraph leading in those stats Tim. The only reason for that is they are so late with their football news that it has already been done!

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.

Versatile former Arsenal man in on trial?

Deacon, who started out with Arsenal has been with Stevenage and Crawley with the latter releasing him at the end of last season. Cookie will 'run the rule' over him in pre-season?
