Well 'The News of the World' has plenty to say about Pompey today, some good, some not so good and some slightly worrying...
Joe Lewis for Pompey?
I would not be at all disappointed if Pompey were able to tempt Peterborough keeper Joe Lewis to Fratton this summer, as I think that the young keeper is an excellent prospect.
Lewis, who is only 21, has already been named in an England squad by Fabio Capello as a league one player, and 'if' we could attract him for as little as the 'reported' £2.5m I would be even more so, and feel even we 'should' be able to afford this...
I suspect he would command a fee of more than £2.5m though!
Hart and Kidd to sign 2-year deals?
The 'reward' for guiding us to safety, well not quite yet, will be 2-year contract for Hart and Kidd apparently?
An apparent agent is 'claimed' to have said that they are looking for assurances before taking the job, with these assurances being given at least £10m to spent: 'I had discussions with the club this week and was given assurances before we began talks that Paul and Brian would be in charge next year.
'Most advisors would not wish to send a player to a team if you don't know who the manager will be.
'That would be detrimental to the player's long-term interests.'
I have started to lean 'slightly' towards Hart getting the job but after the Arsenal game, more so at the way we set out, I have very much gone back into the 'please look elsewhere'...
Of course, as much as I am concerned by this, 'if', well 'when', they get the job - as I suspect they will, well unless we are taken over - I will of course back them next season but fear that things will go wrong, we will be struggling come Christmas and player/fan power will force them out...
Distin to Spurs...
Sylvain Distin leaving this summer is something that I had thought was nailed on back along, whilst I started thinking he would actually stay I am not so sure again now, and now he is being 'linked' with Spurs...again...
It is claimed that 'he' will return this summer and take the Frenchman to London for £4m?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
