Jacob 'confident' ban will be 'lifted imminently'
Mark Jacob has told The News the he feels that the transfer embargo will be 'lifted imminently' following 'fruitful' talks with the premier league on Tuesday...
'Negotiations' will resume again on Wednesday but Jacob is quoted as saying: 'we have had very fruitful meeting with the Premier League today.
'Talks are resuming tomorrow and the club are confident it will be lifted imminently.'
Another false dawn or could a ray of light suddenly appear?
That said 'if' anyone seriously thinks that we would go out and bring in money signings, let alone 'big money signings' they would be sorely wrong because:
1 - We cannot afford this!
2 - What club in their right mind would do a money transfer deal with us?
3 - Not too many 'top quality' players will want to come to us.
4 - We CANNOT afford to put more debt on top of what we have!
5 - We cannot afford this - oops, I said that one already...
'If' we do get this ban lifted it is 'thought' that loanees and freebies are our best bet for signings, well in fact our ONLY bet, which was always likely to be the case anyway, right?
This would be better than nothing and at least give us a better chance to play on a more even playing field on the pitch! And I suspect, well we have been told, that players are lined up already.
To be honest I will not be raising my hopes too high, as this has happened so many times this season only for them to be dashed, how often have we heard talks about Jacob, or others, being 'confident' about something only for this not to be the case!
Lets just wait and see on this one, and believe anything 'if/when' it happens...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
