Diarra and Kranjcar out/Crouch and Nobby in

Diarra and Kranjcar out/Crouch and Nobby in

Lassana Diarra and Niko Kranjcar were once again 'linked' with moves away from Pompey over the weekend - nothing new there then!

Citeh are the team that have apparently joined the race for Diarra, with an £8m offer being prepared. The only possible reason that I could see this happening - as this would without any doubt not be a forward step football wise - is if the fella is more interested in bumping up his wages than anything else?

He will not be going to Citeh though, I am sure of it...

Roma are the team this time being 'linked' with Kranjcar.

This is the type of club that you could see him leaving for, but I would again doubt this will happen as I am certain that he will be starting the season with Pompey - maybe as a European Championship winner as well as an FA cup winner...

==========

Those being linked with moves into Fratton are both names that are well known to Pompey and the 'linked to' columns.

Of course the Peter Crouch talk has been rumbling on pretty much day in day out for the past few weeks, months even but it is claimed that a deal will finally be arranged for him to sign either this, or next week for around £8m?

Nolberto Solano has been linked with Pompey several times in the past, and with the 33 year old now a free agent after he was released by West Ham the suggestion is that Harry Redknapp wants to give him one last crack in the top flight...

The fella is past his best, but as a free agent and as a squad player he would be worth a crack wouldn't he?

All possibilities to go ahead or fall flat. My money is on the Solano deal going ahead and the rest falling flat.

cant see either of the midfielders going anywhere unless silly money is paid (personally think its all silly money anyway) Like crouch to come but cant even see nobby as a squad player

Solano looked downright poor in his last few matches for West Ham, sure some nice dead balls but he sort of reminds me of the player we needed in the Championship winning season, not when we are trying to push for top 4 honours.

Anything is possible with the silly money about. Diarra & Niko could go at some point soon, which point soon is the question? Now, January or next summer!!! If & when they do, we move on, we have to. We'll get players in, Crouch would be great & Nobby is a clever player, will boost the squad.

it's a funny world guys - I like Kranky and Lassie but don't see either of them as our best players...

I don't think Diarra is going anywhere darren17 so I think it about time that Spurs went elsewhere to do some shopping. Nobby, could maybe teach Utaka how to run up and down the wings properly if he came.

I agree Sneakay, I cant see him going unless one of the 4 "true" big clubs come in for him and 2 of those he has already played for!! At this stage I would rather we lost Niko than Diarra but then that is a worst case that I would obviously not like to see!!!!!

Agree with you ChrisW, Nobby is no where near as good as some of the sqaud players who will probably leave this summer so what's the point?

Tubbs has left the building

Tubbs has finally left Pompey; perhaps his destination is something of a surprise then again there had been some 'rumours' recently of an Eastleigh interest.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.
