Sunday rag rumour mill

Sunday rag rumour mill

Harry Kewell is all but signed according to all and sundry, Harry has declared an interest for a wide man, so Harry Sheree fit the bill for the tabloids.

Shaun Wright-Phillips is the other wide man of note, this one has been bandied around for a while now, but Harry himself has thrown a bit more credability to it by declaring 'Shaun would be a hit at Fratton, he is my sort of player' but then dampens us back down again with 'but I doubt we could afford his wages, or match what Chelsea would want for him'
If SWP wants regular football then would he take a drop in wages?

Edu is next up, the ex-Arsenal midfielder is in line to leave Valencia after a very lean time in Spain, he made just 15 starts in 3 years, should be fresh then! Edu said: "The interest of English clubs like Portsmouth and Man City is obviously flattering.

"I have amazing memories of the years I spent in England, being the first Brazilian player to win both the Premiership and the FA Cup.

"I feel good at Valencia even after a difficult season but the Premier League is arguably the biggest competition in the world."
The News of the World takes credit for that snippet.

Crouchy, our long time target is to be used in a make-weight to get Robbie Keane to Anfield, but would Keane really end his North London love affair?

Zarate is rumoured to be off to Lazio, he is still connected with us even after Harrys public denials of interest, so it won't be a case of Hi Zarate at Fratton.

Anyone think of a better bet for Fratton?

I agree if they want regular football they must take a cut or rot in their respective reserves. If I had a choice I'd have SWP.

Harry Kewell has been on my list of incoming prospects fo months and I know he will be wanting to come to Pompey and will take a wage drop so it will only be Storrie who could muck that one up. With SWP it would be two great signings. HK will be a free transfer so that should free up money to up the offer for Crouch. If we get all three then, combined with the players we already have, I would back our strikers and midfield against any others. I would like to see Huddlestone come to Pompey but it is looking a long shot. Get Shorey as well and IMO we won't need anyone else as long as we keep the players we already have.

Guiza is the latest name in the hat, but his fee is bound to be overinflated after Spains triumph last night, I'm sure he was connected in January wasn't he?

We need a playmaker, as the European cup has proved. The days of muscle power and size have gone.
