John Utaka, whilst maybe not used as an 'out and out' striker as much as some people might have liked, has had more than enough chances now and his 'performance' against Villa on Tuesday was the final, final straw for me - the guy HAS to go, although to be honest as far as I am concerned he should have gone a long time ago!
If only we could have 'forced' him out over the summer we 'might' have been able to keep someone that was more worthwhile keeping?
Although it 'appears' that he dug his heels in and refused to budge, well that and the fact that I do not think clubs were queuing up for him were they...
Yep, we know there is some talent hidden away somewhere as we have seen it every now and again but we CANNOT afford a passenger like him, and given our financial predicament I find it criminal that we can be paying someone so much for so little in return!
What a waste of money...
'According' to The Sun today Celtic are 'lining' him up - I just pray that they take him from us!
The major draw back with this, other than the fact that it is in The Sun for starters, are the 'claims' that they are actually only looking at a loan deal with the 'view to a permanent switch', and even if that happened they are hardly going to pay us much are they?
Either way, time to cut our losses and get rid of him - although I HOPE that 'if' any loan deal is agreed, it is agreed with Celtic paying most, if not all, of his wages!
As far as players coming in goes, as unlikely as this seems given further 'revelations' today about our financial standing - not to mention the transfer embargo still being in place - Benfica defender Miguel Vitor is again being 'linked' with us.
Sky sports 'understands' that we have 'made a move' for the defender, who will only leave Benfica for a temporary loan move wherever he goes, and are 'keen to tie up a deal in the next week, with a view to Vitor joining in January.'
Although is it not a STRIKER and not a keeper or defender that we need most of all?
Whatever though I will believe it when I see it - I guess that goes for both the Utaka and Vitor 'reports'...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
