Crouch now in talks with Sunderland?

Crouch now in talks with Sunderland?

Sky sports is reporting that Peter Crouch has arrived in the North East for talks with Sunderland about a move with it 'believed' a fee has been agreed - click here.

They also report that his agent, Jonathan Barnett, confirmed to 'sky sports news sources' that 'his client was set to hold talks with Sunderland boss Steve Bruce.'

I honestly do not know what to think or make of this.

Some say Crouch has been pushed into this, others say he has jumped - who knows? We know even less if the club tells us nothing...

Troubling is the best description. Still think it represents good business (he gets paid £70k / week), but sends out ALL of the wrong signals. Really hope it doesn't happen, but can see some rationalse for this - a rationale I can't see for the Distin rumour.

How on earth can it make good business sense and send out all the wrong signals Pompeytim? It can only be one or the other. We're playing in the EPL, and that's a business that needs assets/quality to stay trading.

crouchy showed more committment to us that distin last season tho, so for me i know who i would rather see go...

from a 'business' point of view, and its a worry that business is how we are seeing things - tho i hope not, is it really such a good deal on crouch tho? selling him for around what we paid - all we save is wages, but at least wages, in my thinking, went on someone that gave 100% all of the time. business wise, distin on a free sold for £3m would make more sense, no?

If Hart is being installed as manager then Crouch leaving makes all the sense in the world. I wouldnt want to spend another season playing up front on my own with only Hughes and Mullins for support either.

Not bothered about Davis going! Sorry to see Glen go but I don't blame him & wish him well. Distin was brilliant but has lost the plot & needs to move on. Crouch going will leave me very miffed.

Another problem is,when looking at signing new players,when they see who they might have for teammates they will probably say ********* to that I will go elsewhere

Why are we able to sell in the middle of a takeover but not buy? surely there's no difference?

If James stays he's going to be very busy next season. Maybe SAF will rebrand PFC to "Rag, Tag and Bobtail"

Match Day Officials v Bristol Rovers

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Bristol Rovers this weekend.

On this day in history...11th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 11th February.

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.
