'If It's Football, It's Vital'

I wonder if '10m on the table' still stands?

On Tuesday it was 'claimed' in The Mirror that Lille had, through their president Michel Seydoux in the French media, said that '10m on the table' was the amount waiting for Younes Kaboul.

Following the developments later that day, and our appeal against the winding-up petition being dismissed - although that ruling is set to be appealed as well - I wonder if this is still the case, as if it is we WILL need to bite their arm off now, right?

Although I suspect that clubs will be thinking even more that they can scavenge for any remaining talent we have at rock bottom prices knowing that we need money to come in quick...

Whilst in an ideal world we would like to keep the likes of Younes to increase, what are - lets be honest - fading chances of staying up, at least, needs MUST and all that!

So, maybe any future offer from Lille, or anyone else, 'might' not be quite as large anymore, although 'perhaps' it is more pressing that it is now accept without hesitation?

Then again taking whatever we can for whoever we can is only a 'short-term' solution, and this is not something that we can sustain in the long-term as we DO NOT have enough talent to do this!

I think if they have made a formal offer they won't withdraw it now, if they do they may not get the man they want and it appears they want him 10 million pounds much, if anything they know their offer just became very very attractive. Unless Pompey can get the embargo lifted it doesn't matter anyway and do we know Younes wants to go back to France?

At 10m I don't think Younes will get a say russ?.. but Pompey will hang out right until the last minute just to increase the competition..

Slight change of subject...Campbell suing for 1.67m plus interest for image rights, truly a former captain that really cares!!

I think your rightChix, at that sort of coin, I dont see how we would say no, may even be a chance of the rest of the team getting wages for next month.......What am I saying, maybe not, sell UTAKA as well!!!

would we really buy kaboul if we had the money today for 10m - I'm not sure. Take the 10m and go to the loans market for someone to cover the spot. Right now a 5m cash up front deal would suit portsmouth rather than a 10m split into appearances and over 3 years carp!

wasn't it euros?

I say snap up the money now. That should end the embargo. Pay some bills and get Senderos in on loan, he has a lot to prove just as kaboul did when he came to us. Most important thing in my view is to end the embargo so avram can get cheap/loan deals in.
