SWP move still on/Pompey's battle for Belhadj

SWP move still on/Pompey's battle for Belhadj

'Reports' in today's Daily Express, which are claimed as exclusive say Shaun Wright-Phillips could still make a move to Pompey before the end of the transfer window, in fact by the time we face Manyoo on Monday!

The England man has said that he is happy with Chelski - but he cannot really say anything else can he! The suggestion is that Harry Redknapp, Pompey owner Sasha Gaydamak and Chelski sugar daddy Roman Abramovich held talks after our defeat at Stamford Bridge on Sunday with the view to ironing out a season loan deal for the winger.

Who knows what to believe, until anything is confirmed you cannot really believe anything - but it would not surprise me at all if we saw him arrive on loan before the end of the month...

==========

Whereas another reported target Nadir Belhadj is attracting plenty of interest, with the Lens chairman 'claiming' 4 clubs are battling out for his signature.

Still struggling with the idea we have to beg after selling Muntari & Pedro. Hard facts of business.

i hope we sign swp as down the right hand side against chelsea we were awful, i dont see why redknapp said he as forced to play kaboul in centre mid when he could have played utaka in right mid and diop in the centre, bad tactics by the management on sunday!

Spot on pompeyhaz. We lost badly on Sunday for two reasons no.1. because Chelsea were that good and no.2. because Harry ****ed up the tactics. Four central midfielders is only ever going to be narrow.

If he's got any sense he would come, look at Diarra and Defoe who were both bench warmers at their respective clubs. SWP will be used as a squad player this year same as last year at Chelsea and no amount of money for a pro makes up for not playing. He would have a very realistic chance of getting a regular England place if he was able to show his wares on a regular basis.

Belhadji and SWP on loans and or Appiah and Sorin on free transfers, all would command decen wages but i think we should go for all four of them. Belhadji can play on the wing as well as a left back, Sorin is a left back/left wing back so different options there. Appiah gives Diop some competition in the middle and thenSWP to challenege Utaka on the right...

Just look at the optimism this speculation has created. As someone once said...."Funny old game".
