SAF 'sets up' striker deal...

SAF 'sets up' striker deal...

Hopes that our transfer embargo could be lifted in the not to distant future have been raised by some recent comments - although as it stands we do still have this in place...

Despite this fact it was today 'claimed' in The Sunday People that a deal 'has been agreed' for Egyptian striker Emad Metab.

This deal is 'said' to have been 'set up' by SAF, who is also 'said' to still be working on a deal for Amr Zaki as well - although he made it clear he did not want to sign for us back along, right...

'Apparently' the 26-year-old, Metab that is, who plays for Al-Ahly is someone that Avram Grant 'admires' and would like to sign for £1.2m when the transfer embargo is lifted, which Grant has 'allegedly' been told will be the case before the end of the month - although to be fair we too have also been told this is something 'we hope' will be the case.

The fact remains that until this embargo is lifted talk of players signing is nothing more than talk, although Grant has himself said that deals are being lined up - so I am sure that, funds permitting and this embargo being lifted, he will soon move for these players that you would imagine would be wrapped up quickly...

As always all we can do is wait and see.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Does this mean Belhadj and Yebda are leaving? Or are the Egyptians ok about mixing with Algerians all of a sudden. To be fair, was it just Zaki either being brain dead or misreported...?

googled him: first site "Emad Metab signs for bristol city". a move that never came off, as after a fee had been agreed, signed a contract, and got a work permit, he went on to play for Al Ahly in the african champions league.

to make things more confusing, I think his surname seems to vary between "metab" and "Moteab"... anyway, over the years, he's won quite a bit - Egyptian Premier League Top Goalscorer 2004/05. Named the best striker in Africa in 2005. Named Second best Striker in Africa in 2006. the problem is, he hasn't done anything remarkable since then. And no, I don't count winning the saudi premier league last year as "remarkable".

so my point is - after having won all those things between 2004-2006, why was it that only bristol rovers were intrested in 2008, and what has changes so massivly since then to make him a premiership striker?

oh time will see. All depends on the embargo being lifted. Again camels & clowns replacing the lions & tigers.

Done Deal - Free agent Davies arrives

No sooner had I mused the central defensive options wondering would Cookie bring in another have we announced a deal for former Accrington man Tom Davies!

No longer a midfield option

Barton played most of his football for Pompey in central defence. He came to Fratton as a central midfielder but those days are behind him, as far as Cookie is concerned.

On this day in history...1st July

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 1st July.

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.
