Saviola deal really is on?

Saviola deal really is on?

It has rumbled on for a number of weeks now, with Peter Storrie saying back along 'there was a deal to be done' with the Argentinean international striker Javier Saviola.

To be honest few of us believed it, but this 'sensational swoop' - as The News calls it, which to be fair I do not think is overdoing it - could well just come off you know guys and a 6-month loan deal from Madrid is said to be inching ever closer.

In fact The News says that Saviola could be paraded as a new signing at Fratton tonight ahead of the game with Villa...

We need a world-class spark to lift the players, the fans and the club in general, and should we pull off this remarkable deal, which seemed almost unthinkable, then this would do exactly that!

Tony Adams has also revealed that he was in the running for Emile Heskey, but Villa beat him to his signature...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Have heard Spurs have entered the race along with Newcastle and Everton. Come, Mr Storrie, close this one - don't let him get away!

Apparently, we're also interested in bringing Amdy Faye back from Stoke and Gelson Fernandes from City.

Anyone got Jamie's Dad's mobile number? Call him and keep his line busy till Sav signs. Although he'd be one of those blokes with about four different phones.

In 2005 Savioala was listed by FIFA as one of the top 125 living footballers in the world. I hope he hasn't gone off the boil in the past four years!

Saviola is quality. If we can get him it will be a real coup and may well be the catalyst to get our season back on track. Come on Saviola - put pen to paper NOW!

On this day in history...26th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 26th June.

Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

Cushioning the blow

Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.

Swindon striker in 'Pompey's sights'

Michel Smith, who was of course on loan last season, could return? He's still in 'Pompey's sights' by all accounts after Swindon informed him he's 'surplus to requirements' now.
