Wrighty urges his boy to join us!

Wrighty urges his boy to join us!

Not for the first time Ian Wright has urged his adopted son Shaun Wright-Phillips to quit Chelski and sign for Pompey.

Wright had previously been quite vocal on this issue, in both the papers and on TalkSport radio and once again - and stronger than ever - he has been telling the papers that a move to Pompey is the way to go, with The News quoting some of what he had said to a national daily: 'I think Portsmouth would be a good move for Shaun.

'Being at a club like Portsmouth, where he's going to play regularly, will boost him.

'He'll also get back in the England squad on merit instead of being there just because he's at a big club.'

Come on Shaun you know it makes sense, Pompey is the place to be!

I would be delighted if we could sign him as he would create so many goals, as well as score others. The concerns that we cannot afford him are there, but surely we will have a budget of £20m-£30m this summer, spending two thirds of this on both Peter Crouch and Wright-Phillips would be money very well spent in my thinking and this outlay could easily be recouped and more if both perform to the true capabilities.

So do we want Wright-Phillips at Pompey or not guys, as always thoughts below please...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Even though I like him a lot, I think he's better off leaving us. He'll benefit from playing in your team. A good move for all parties imo if it happens.

Rug - I assume it is you that has written the forward to this. We may well have 20 - 30 million to spend on new signings - but could you please tell me where the wages are coming from? It seems to me that we may have free signings aka Little and wotsisname, but they all have to have their wages. And with the big signings still to come where is all the money coming from? We have ended this year with a deficit, how is our little stadium going to pay for it all. Sorry, everybody, but this has been on my mind for quite a while, and having drunk 2 bottles of wine this evening, I thought I'd ask!

im just working on the assumption that we will spent at least what we did last summer - and altho money doesnt grow on trees should there be a reason for this not to happen? the tv money alone should be around that figure. i reckon we will get around £30m in tv money this summer, not to mention ohter spins offs for this and that...

PS: What is more pertinent to the thread is that of course, Mr Wright is right. His son should join Pompey where Harry will coax the very best from him. He will also get regular football and if he works hard and shows loyalty, will get his very own chant from the best fans in the land! Not to mention qualifying for the England team.. Pompey is simply THE place to be at the moment! I may be drunk but am I wrong?

Gandor, the wages will become more important in a year or 2 if FiFa and Uefa get their way and all clubs have to be able to balance their books, and not run at a loss, before they will be allowed to compete in any European Competitions. It's a move I am in favor of and would take it further and make it a rule all clubs in all leagues have to balance their seasons trade accounts before they are allowed to compete the following season.

Gandor you talk a lot of sense when your drunk. I totally agree with what you say. Another barrel for Gandor, please.

We can only guess at to what level Mr. Gaydamak subsidises us, until a new stadium comes along or players take drastic wage cuts, a sugar daddy will always be needed

Devil's advocate

Having heard the views of chris1954 and Pompeysurrey that of Ronald Wilson encompasses both, reacting to them, but also offers an opinion of their own.

What a mess

Ouch, 'what a mess' is the assessment of Pompeysurrey when commenting on the current situation at Fratton Park.
