Is Mullins The Man ?

Is Mullins The Man ?

Newspapers and Newswires have been busy overnight suggesting that West Ham's Hayden Mullins is set for a £1m (or is it £2m) switch to Pompey.

It is reported that Defensive Midfielder Mullins (29) is being allowed to leave Upton Park as part of the cost cutting measures forced on Gianfranco Zola

Apparently the club's have agreed a fee and the ex-England Under-21 who has scored 4 goals in 178 games since moving to Upton Park from Crystal Palace for £800,000 in 2003 will travel to Portsmouth today for a medical

So what do you think?

Is Mullins the Man
to sit in front of our back four ?

Will he be up for the relegation scrap we find ourselves in ?

If we believe what we read in the papers this one looks like a done deal, although the statements that Mullins will be Lassana Diarra's replacement make me chuckle as at 10 or even 20% of the cost of Lassana I very much doubt he will be. But Mullins is an battle hardened premiership player who has experience of a relegation scrap so at the risk of sounding desperate... I guess he'll do.

lets be honest for just one or two million he isnt going to be the worlds best player, and knowing are, not brilliant, manager he's probably pretty crap. If he still had Harry he would find a brilliant youngster or two for a few pence each, and they would come in and work wonders, but 2mil to replace Diarra?? I really dont think it will work.

but better than nothing? Surely he can't be as ineffectual as the centre midfield I was forced to watch on Saturday. btw did you hear TA saying "I'm not going anywhere" on Sky this morning...off by Thursday do you think??

and another thing...Burnley are claiming JD was cup-tied for Carling and shouldn;'t have played in that second leg. If God really is a seasider, Spurs will have to cede the match to Burnley. However, Harry can't be THAT stupid...

Never heard of him he wouldnt be fit to wear diarras shoes. Get emerson if its possible because signing this Mullins man will not help the club

Remember just a few years ago, Scumpton reacxhed the cup final played in the UEFA cup, at one time were pushing for top 6 (they actually were fourth in the December)? The Board lost their nerve, lost a good manager, sold their best players - where are they now? Much as we might delight in their plight, it should be a warning to us. This is turning into a f***ing SHAMBLES!
