Dindane to Celtic/ANOTHER off to Spurs!

Dindane to Celtic/ANOTHER off to Spurs!

Earlier in the week Aruna Dindane was off to Birmingham and now, according to The Mirror, the on loan striker is going to leave Pompey and join Celtic - also on loan until the end of the season.

Lens seems to growing 'increasingly frustrated' with Pompey, to say the least, with it 'said' that they have approached Fifa to get the loan cancelled - although this is not new news is it, this has been rumbling for a while.

I did have to laugh at The Mirror's words though, 'Dindane, 29, has been a hit at Fratton Park on loan from Lens.'

Granted he has had his moments but I would not say that he has 'been a hit' has he?

In all honesty, as much as we need players, if Dindane were to leave I am not sure I would be that disappointed really. Like Didier Drogba before him 'maybe' Dindane could be better in time but we do not have the time to find out, nor can we afford - quite literally - the financial risks involved...

Not content at pillaging Pompey for a manager, coaches and several players, the last of which, Niko Kranjcar, was virtually given away Spurs are 'said' to be hovering above our carcass again!

According to The Express Younes Kaboul will be the latest to not only move on, but return to Spurs?

They 'claim' that as well as 'dropping their claim' for money we still owe them for Kaboul they will give us £3m and 'accelerate' a payment owed to us for Peter Crouch...

It seems to farcical to be true, but these days who knows what is true or false and could or could not happen - I just pray that we do not sell yet another player to Spurs, if we do sell Younes, as seem inevitable, lets at least shift him elsewhere - would he even want to return to Spurs anyway?

Lazy journalism, hopefully!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I wonder how much they still owe us for Crouch and when it's due. Amongst all of the news about how much we owe i've heard nothing about how much we're still owed from the various clubs for the players sold over the last year and when this money is due.

Who would want to support Portsmouth these days. Having said that Portsmouth supporters are probably the most loyal in the PL. They are in the deepest sh&it they could ever wish for. Hope they get a bit of luck soon as it's away overdue. With the loss of O'Hara and now possibly Kaboul they are loosing two spine players and that can only spell more problems. They would be better off relegated and regroup, like Birmingham did. Anyway best of luck in the second half of the season.

I for one, as a spurs fan would not take him back. There's a reason why we sold him, he's just not good enough. yes he's got a good spell going this year, but there are better prospects then him in the same age bracket. But the point that you still owe us some money stands and I think that's where this mambo-jumbo comes from. At the moment we only need a squad def. who can ease the pressure on our starting backs.

I very much doubt thta Kaboul would consider a return to Spurs, but for Harry being the man to buy him. the only issue I have with it, is that he left us because he wasnt playing football, so would joining us, with Dawson, Bassong, King and woodgate be any easier. That is assuming that king and woodgate have a future at Spurs.

are you lot forgetting younes failed at spurs? he is in no way good enough for us! a cente half who thinks he's a midfielder/winger/striker?....defoe came from us to start with and he is rightully back home now, but thanks for niko, pure class....and now that he has some real talent around him we are seeing what he is really capable of....remember we threw you jamie o hara on loan to help you from going down, and he was prob your best player, so think befoe you keep moaning about spurs!

For the PL to lift the embargo they need to be convinced that Pompey have means to pay any other debts and also wages. I guess following the meetings this week they cannot be convinced by what the club has presented. To reduce both of these it would mean 3 things, give back loan players and drop the potential fees payable, sell players, loan players to reduce the wage bill. All of these can be expected in the next two weeks before the PL will relinquish the embargo.

Jamo not going to Stoke, they couldn't agree on who pays what of his salary.

More press rubbish and as Rug and Chix say lazy journalism. Spuds fans certainly saw the worst of Janice but we have seen the true player this season and without him we would already be relegated.

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
