I think we all know that the majority of the papers talk rubbish the majority of the time - ok, they might honestly believe some of what they print is true, but at best I would suspect that most 'take a punt' and hope for the best...
A 'battle of the Sunday papers' sees The Sunday People totally go against what The Sunday Mirror 'claims' is an 'exclusive' that Redknapp is being sounded out with a return by saying that Slaven Bilic is Sven Goran Eriksson's 'strongest contender' for the Pompey job?
If one says one thing, more often than not - unless it is not possible to do so, even then some try! - the other will say another.
Pini Zahavi is 'said' to have played some role in our takeover, which the sooner is completed without a doubt the better, with him said to be preferring the Croatian to the Swede?
As it is to be honest Eriksson or Bilic would suit me fine, I would not really mind either!
I must admit that I do like the thought of the Croat, as his enthusiasm could become infectious, along with his passion from the sidelines, and this passion is something that I always like to see, is incredible but could he transfer the international success that he has had with the national team - made up of a set of players that most would have grown up seeing as a player for their country and some 'might' have even played with - to club football with a completely different set of players?
A set of players that would view him in a completely different light...
The Swede has undoubted respect, in footballing terms anyway, throughout the game and would command, if not demand, the respect from his players and would get it as for all his faults he is said to be a real people person and a person that players truly respect, the world over - this in itself, added to his international field of 'connections' could prove invaluable?
All in all, none of us know if either, or others mentioned, seriously are on 'the wish list' and until the deal to take ownership of the club totally goes through none of us really know what to expect - expecting the unexpected is something that most of us know with Pompey, but I guess for the time being we just have to 'wait and see'...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
