Basinas signs for Pompey

Basinas signs for Pompey

It has been confirmed on the Pompey Site that Angelos Basinas has joined Pompey.

The fee has not been disclosed, but an 18-month contract has been signed by the 33-year-old Greek international - who was part of the 2004 European championship winning side - who joins from AEK Athens, with Peter Storrie saying: 'we've brought in someone of immense experience, the current captain of Greece who is just three games away from winning his 100th cap for his country.

'He's exactly what we need in the situation that we're in. He's a player that Tony was eager to bring to Pompey.

'He desperately wanted to come here and we have an option to sign him for a further year on top of the 18 months.'

Time will tell if we have got the right player, or if he has come in a few years too late - either way lets give the fella a chance before he is written off, or for that matter raved about I guess...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

What does he do? I know he plays football. Is he a striker or midfield?

Gandor, he is a central defensive midfield player, maybe getting on a bit, but he has a long pedigree, just hope he turns out to be another Pedro Mendes.

He's a quality player and if people moan about his age I point them towards one D. Beckham currently plying his trade at a small club in Milan. I hope that people give him a chance to prove himself over a few games before deciding to write him off as 'another one of those greek players' (who happens to have set up the winning goal in the euro 2004 final).

I read in the Daily Mail that we have turned down Bolton's offer for Davis.

I think this cold be a good signing, he sits in front of the defense and provides cover in that Makélélé role. I know he's old but I don't think that matters if he is sit in front of the defense and give them that cover that they need at the moment.

Another Greek, they keep each other company whilst they settle in. Let's hope they hit the deck running & we have no plate throwing tantrums!!!
