The speculation is going to reach fever pitch over the next 24-hours or so, but before the transfer window slams shut Pompey could worryingly make a 'last minute' move for Villa's 'striker', and I use the term loosely, Marlon Harewood.
Please can someone tell me what he will offer us that makes him a better option to anything that we have - then again, is this in reality probably a sign of the type of player we should get used to signing now?
Put it this way, surely Benjani would offer us much, much more, and chances are would score the same amount of goals, if not more than Harewood would. At a price of £2m surely the Zimbabwean would not cost much more, if any more than that and would be a much better option to turn to... God knows he would be 'up for it' more than most other options we could turn to would!
I pray this is just 'lazy journalism', with the reporters plucking a name out of the air of a player likely to leave his current club and linking him to us as we need a striker and have of course been linked to him in the past...
Would he be better than nothing at all though?
The fact that I would rather scoop my own eyes out with a plastic spoon than see us sign him, for me says nothing would be better than the most desperate of desperate acts, which is what I think this move would be - maybe I am being far too harsh...
While Sean Davis is again being linked with a move away.
He was linked with 'a few lines' in the papers the other day regarding a possible move to Bolton - sky sports news 'understands' that an official approach has been for him and a £2m move could take place before tomorrows deadline?
If we are going to tie him down to a new contract - something we say we want to, now is the time to do it, if not then even if we cannot really afford to let him go due to the numbers shortage we already have then with £2m on the table we will probably take it rather than get nothing in the summer.
I am torn on the guy, I am usually quite open in my admission that I always want him to leave each summer, but when he does not I am pleased he stays when he comes back into the side. I am not sure about his quality, actually strike that, I have no doubt about his quality not exactly being there, but his effort, commitment and dedication has not dipped at all - if only everyone that pulls on the blue shirt could say the same...
Sod the money, if we are going to let him go, let him go for nothing in the summer - we cannot show the greed and sell him now just to make sure we get money in!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
