Free Agent Webber joins Pompey

Free Agent Webber joins Pompey

Nothing official yet but a few of the nationals are running with the story that Pompey have signed 27 year old Danny Webber on a two year deal.

Webber was a product of Manchester United Youth set-up but failed to make a league appearence before transferring to Watford and then later Sheffield United from where he was released, along with a host of other players, at the end of last season when Kevin Blackwell decided to reshape his squad.

Webbers scoring record is approx 1 in 4 which compares favorably to most forwards although he has very limited premier league experience.

So what do we reckon fellas - Is 'Danny Boy' gonna be our 'Fox in the Box' or a 'Dead Duck'?

Another Tommy Smith or just somebody to warm the bench ?

No idea, but it's an extra body in the squad, which can only be a good thing.

Thanks Chix - just picked this up and thought quick write story and you beat me to it. As to Webber he has injury problems but gives us an extra experienced body.

Skysports also " understands" the same so I expect it to happen. If this guy is so good why did no one else pick him up for example Wigan and Hull have been scouring for strikers and they would have known about him from the players register. 1 in 4 was similar to Nugents championship record; I'm yet to be convinced that this is not another cheap hope

So we let a tried and tested skillful player like Zenden go and give up on him, then sign a championship reject.....just getting ready for next season are we Mr Hart...sorry but the quality of players we seem to be getting is depressing. Just hope he instill some team spirit that might get us through, but I'm pessimistic.

We seem to be preparing a championship team for the future. I have to trust Paul Hart but these signings are sending out a lousy message.
