And now Boateng signs!

And now Boateng signs!

The Pompey Site has confirmed that Pompey have completed another signing with Kevin-Prince Boateng arriving from Spurs.

The midfielder has signed a 3-year contract for an undisclosed amount - 'said' to be around £4m - which has left Paul Hart 'thrilled': 'Kevin's a good player and I'm very thrilled that we've managed to get him here.

'He's a young player who wants to prove something. Like all the players we've brought in, he's got something to prove.

'He's got tremendous ability and hopefully we can provide the environment to channel that.'

Welcome aboard Kevin, in all honesty I am not sure what to think as I have not seen enough of you to judge that much. Now is your chance to prove yourself, as I am sure you will get plenty of opportunity to shine this season.

Now fulfil that early promise...

Amid all this comings Marlon Pack has joined Wycombe Wanderers on a months loan.

At least we now have some quality among the quantity.

Im so excited about this guy! Soo much promise, but never had a chance to do anything! Spuds had many players in same position better than him, and never got a real string of games. Much better than basinas and mullins, so should get a good go, and prove that he is actually quaity, and can develop as a player under us!

got to be honest i really know bugger all about the guy, is he an attacking mid or defensive? either way can't get much worse than muggins ***** :P

I've rated KPB but thought he didn't get a fair opportunity at the Lane. He's had three managers since his arrival and two didn't want him there. However Sevilla wanted him while Ramos was still their manager. He has the ability to the be an outstanding box-to-box midfielder and now he will be able to play weekly we may just see that. Alongside Papa Bouba Diop he could help shore up the midfield especially if Mokoena is played as a defensive midfielder; however that means Hart will have to change the formation a little. Well done Pompey. There is hop for you yet.

pompeym@ - he's a bit of both. Box to box midfielder, bit of a tank. I seem remember he kung-fu kicked somebody last season whilst playing for Dortmund.

I reckon 'Arry has done you lot a favour here, not that you'll remember the good things he's done for you (FA Cup) next time we meet. Hope the lad does well, he deserves a good chance.

KPB is a quality player, but he will need time to settle. technically he is very good and is well up for a battle, if anything a little to well up for it. if he can calm down and concentrate on playing football, he will be a fantastic signing for you.
28/08/2009 18:15:00
Yeah he did us a massive favour by leaving us when he found out there was no money at the club. If the same happens at spurs don't expect him to hang around for too long.
28/08/2009 18:17:00
He never really had a chance at Spurs and was a little arrogant when he first arrived. He came with the accolade of being Young Player of the Year in the Bundesliga, so reckoned he'd cracked it. The PL proved a different proposition though and he soon found he didn't have so much time on the ball. For all that, I think he's a decent player and if he's made to feel welcome I reckon you might have yourselves a bit of a gem. With O'Hara coming on loan, I reckon Harry's doing his bit to help you guys out. Good luck in the coming months, hopefully these guys will assist.

Seven month consultation yields result

There was much speculation about what would happen, what the final outcome could bring and how happy - or disappointed - this was going to leave us. The new Pompey club crest is known.

Oldham - 17th March - Boundary Park

The recent form at Fratton Park has been terrible. Then again it's hardly stunning away from the South Coast, but we'll hope to put Oldham under pressure and collect a much-needed win.
