Kranjcar completes Spurs move

Kranjcar completes Spurs move

Niko Kranjcar has now officially completed his move to Spurs.

Peter Storrie, talking to The Pompey Site, says that he is sorry to see him leave but we could not stand in his way with little time on his contract.

Of course the Croatian is seen as our own creative influence from midfield so many will be outraged at this departure - but it is all very well being this player but if you are not creating you are worthless really!

How often does he fail to beat that first man from a free kick or a corner? And for every blinding free kick that he scores he put another 20 into the wall well over the bar or wide.

Do not get me wrong the guy is a quality footballer, but for me we just have not seen enough of this over the years and as previously said 'passengers' are not what we can afford this season.

Again, as previously said the pedestal that he is put on by all, not just some, opposing fans never ceases to amaze me - I have seen him dismantle international teams, including England, but he just has not done it on a consistent basis for Pompey and that is why, for me, I will not miss him that much...

I would be disappointed if the talk of a fee as low as £3m were true though, although I would be amazed if this was not knocking off the money that we owe Spurs for our recent captures from them?

PLAY UP POMPEY!

just read some of his comments and he said after having a great team and winning the FA cup their is only david james left so he felt he needed to leave because you guys haven't strengthened enough.who can blame the guy i mean would anyone really stay if they were in his shoes.he will be good for us and harry will get the best out of him.2.5 mil is nothing and even though it's great for us i really feel sorry for you guys.

Doubt o'hara will be going back now. He'll be even further down the pecking order. At least now the window is shut ******** spurs cant rob anymore of our players. not that they'd want to...

Dwight, you're welcome to him. All will become apparent and I am sure he will split opinion at the Lane also! Just keep him away from the Pies and he may stay fit !

I think most pompey fans would agree he was awesome in his first two seasons in england, if harry can recover that form then at the price we got him it looks a snip.

only thing with Niko was he was a bit of a square peg, undoubted talent, but it was always a case of where do you play him?

Big Ben returns!

There's no doubting how important Davies is to us, we most definitely missed the former Sheffield United man against Orient but Cook's confirmed he'll start against Bristol Rovers.

Winning over the fans

Cook feels he still has to 'win over a proportion' of the fans at Pompey?

Tubbs surprised...in a way he has a point

5-goals in a combined total of 8-matches isn't a bad return is it so having made his move to Eastleigh this week I get Tubbs' point at his surprise Cook wasn't selecting him.

Pompey Predictions League - update no.28
