Offer for Smith accepted

Offer for Smith accepted

Watford have released an official statement that says an offer from Pompey for Tommy Smith has been accepted.

The statement, on their website, said: 'Watford can this evening (Tuesday) confirm the Club has received and accepted an offer from Portsmouth for attacker Tommy Smith.

'The Premiership side made their bid for the 29-year-old late on and it is now down to the player to decide upon a move to Fratton Park or Reading, after the Hornets had accepted an earlier bid from the Berkshire based club.'

In all honesty he is not the type of striker that I would be looking to sign, as you just have to look at the amount of time spent outside of the premier league to think 'is he premier league quality'...

You also have to think 'is he really any better than what we have?'

I would question this to be honest, but what do I know...All in all though any signing is pretty much welcomed at the moment.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Personally, i like him, have done for a while. I'd welcome him here, surely he can't be as bad as Nugget! Would prefer Beckford tbh, but no doubt Leeds would ask £5m-£6m for him.

Surely just an older Dave Nugent. Hmmmmm not convinced by this move.

He had a good season last year but whether he's Premiership class is another matter. I can't really remember him making a mark when he played for Watford in the Premiership a couple of years ago. If he's up for the fight and has the quality then I'm more than happy for him to join. He can't be any worse than Nugget.

Maybe Nugget is on his way, and this is our replacement?

We can't afford to lose any strikers, if we sell then we are in even more trouble than I can imagine.

like andrew, i always liked him but 29yrs old, £1.8m, and a championship player....too dear, too old and un proven..could do well with a Feddy or Dindune...is he (AD) signing by the way?

The point here for me is twice now we have offered cash money for a player and a club has accepted; I'll give the guy a chance although I'm not convinced he's the quality level we need.

Any new signing is a gamble, really. We had high hopes for Utaka, and for many months we doubted him. Nugent was a very encouraging signing and the same happened. Even Piqiuonne was a gamble, but so far, so good. I would welcome him on board, especially since we will lose Dindanne, Kanu and Utaka in January, if he signs.
