Emerson and Saviola next?

Emerson and Saviola next?

According to quotes attributed to Milan midfielder Emerson's agent Vincenzo Morabito in The Mail the Brazilian will be joining Pompey shortly: 'we are negotiating on behalf of Portsmouth and Milan are ready to sell the player.

'Emerson's contract will run out next June and we must consider that.

'It remains to be seen what his decision will be. He would probably want an 18-month contract.'

This is expected to be a loan until the end of the season, but his agent seems to be suggesting an 18-month deal will see him here right away?

To be honest I would much rather 'try before we buy' despite the obvious talent the Brazilian has.

Another that is expected to make the loan move to Pompey is Madrid's Javier Saviola.

'Reports' claim the Argentine striker has 'snubbed' Everton and Newcastle in favour of Pompey and will be at Fratton to watch us face Villa tomorrow ahead of a loan until the end of the season?

As said earlier, big names arriving could happen, but for me will only happen on loan - and is that such a bad thing...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Don't be fooled by Emerson, he wasn't good in his prime at Juventus let alone now. He doesn't have the pace for the Premiership. Jav Sav would be good though, even if he is another mercenary player.

These 2 players will revolutionise the team. Emerson is a 'legend' and considered by many, at least a few years past, the worlds best defensive midfielder. Saviola was told in certain terms he will not get on the pitch at madrid, it seems he has finally decsided to use his quite considerable skills rather than sit about at the bernabeu.

Sounds good, hopefully we will get him, he should be a good player to have. maybe we can start winning a few games! If we're really lucky he may cause us to stay up, (if we get him in time)

Also Saviola would be a good signing, both would really help us out and make the team a lot better.

Saviola would be good. Have to play 442 TA especially at home. Emerson could prove to be a luxury.

Im still not convinced it's going to happen. I am not raising my hopes until something happens. At least that way I may get a nice suprise like this morning

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.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.
