Sahar joins Pompey

Sahar joins Pompey

Another arrival has been confirmed with Ben Sahar completing his expected loan move to Pompey from Chelski to become our 2nd signing of the summer.

Sahar

The Israeli teenager has made an impact in the Championship after loans with QPR and Wednesday now he is hoping to make the grade in the top flight as he explained to the Pompey Site: 'I've always wanted to be part of a Premier League team and I'm happy to be at Portsmouth.

'I'm ready for the challenge of being part of such a big club.

'I want to be part of it and to show that I deserve to be here.'

He is also excited about the prospect of playing in front of the best fans in the world, which of course we are: 'I've heard a lot of good things about the fans.

'I've been here twice with Chelsea and the fans were incredible. It's difficult to play against Portsmouth because they are singing all the time.

'My goal is to play and I'm striker, so of course I want to score a few goals for Portsmouth - that's why I'm here.

'It's a new beginning and I'm ready for it.'

The 18 year old has joined on an initial 6 month loan deal, picking Fratton over several other alternatives, including Dutch club NEC.

I have only heard good things about his quality, and what I have seen has been good - although the one thing that does concern me is the fact that he is said to 'believe the hype' surrounding him, which might lead him to thinking he is actually bigger and better than he is and could see him react in a bad way if he cannot get regular 1st team football...

His signing will no doubt put further question marks over the future of Dave Nugent in particular, but I cannot see any reason why we cannot retain him as well - as after all this is only a loan to begin with.

My thinking is this puts further pressure on Kanu, as with Peter Crouch likely to sign - I fully believe this will happen, and maybe this week - if he does not agree to sign his new deal he could, and I would say under the circumstances should be shown the door!

So there we are guys, it's the 1st July so this should, as expected, really signal the start of things to come. As always your thoughts would be welcomed...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Excellent news! From what i've seen, he's quick, powerful' knows where the goals is and doesn't lack self belief. I think it spells the end for Nuge though!

I think this is a strange one to be honest as surely Chelsea will have only loaned him on the basis of him playing, otherwise why bother? We will just have to wait and see.

Is he to keep Nugent & Kanu on their toes or to replace 1 or both of them?

The Jewish Chronicle got it right then. See the thread It's Friday - Chances of a Press Conference ..... perhaps? Where 007 said we had signed 'Sarah' lol.

I can't keep up with it all. Only YESTERDAY Peter Storrie said he was going on holiday, Harry was on holiday and nothing was happening in the Premier league and nothing was happening at Portsmouth. I could go on and on - but I won't! Put me in a real bad mood yesterday. Still, welcome to Sahar!

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.
