Did we (re)start this rumour?
As we all know Mark Viduka was 'heavily' linked - no fat joke puns intended, honest! - with Pompey last summer, but for better or worse no deal came about.
You will probably also remember that Chixy suggested a poll last week about the Aussie, which we voted on with the thoughts that NOT signing him was the right thing to do.
I find is 'strange' that The Metro today picks up on Viduka, running something about the 'former Leeds and Newcastle striker Mark Viduka is wanted by Portsmouth to score the goals which will lift them out of the Premier League relegation zone' - Pompey target Viduka while Arsenal move for Pavlyuchenko - Transfer Talk - here
I say strange, as our poll followed the thoughts that could his goals lift us out of the relegation zone - so, has our poll and the subsequent article on its findings, somehow offered ammunition to the 'reawakening' of this old rumour?
Is this further evidence that the vast majority of 'rumours' that papers actually do go with are nothing more than assumptions made from other peoples thoughts/things that are picked up by various means online?
It certainly seems funny that after months of nothing on this issue, when thoughts on Viduka returned to the public eye with musings on Vital Pompey, that 'rumours' about him suddenly resurface - hmmm...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
