09:55 - Morning All
Well we have a little over 7 hours to see who comes and who goes in and out of Fratton Park today .. Got any views? .. better still got any rumours ? post 'em below so we can discuss throughout the day
Chix
09:57 - Nosworthy
We'll there goes the first one .. apparently old Nyron has snubbed Pompey in preference to Sheff Utd !!
Chix
Nothing really going on at the moment.
PompeyFcMad
kezman linked to loan deal !! us against westham....
pompeyhussler
Thanks for this Chix, am working all day and will rely on you to be the oracle.
hammersmithblue
Chix, what do reckon we should take Dave Kitson in some way if we are dealing with Stoke over Begovic?
bluedr
its all gonna be last min deals ay mite be a few surprises naormally is..
pompeyhussler
kamara joins celtic from fulham we could of done with him.
pompeyhussler
6,hours52mins10 seconds to go
pompeyhussler
Rangers apparently favourites for Danny *Shittu. LOL at mullins...
5thColumn
hussler where you hear bout a loan deal for kezman?
PompeyFcMad
ild take kezman. james, mullins, nugent can go retain the rest. get vitor and sturridge/belletti/kakuta
ruffcider
mc fad, IMScouting
ruffcider
Looks like none of our keepers will be going to Spurs anyway as Spurs have made a 7m bid for Watford keeper Scott Loach.
PompeyFcMad
Or myabe 2m for him
PompeyFcMad
Hussler
Where are you getting the Kezman link from ?
Chix
on the news sports page online
pompeyhussler
http://www.imscouting.com/global-news-article/west-ham-portsmouth-chase-ex-chelsea-striker-mateja-kezman/5449/
ruffcider
what happened to this cococ bloke..
pompeyhussler
ah cheers ruff, i think he would a alright signing, but im not sure if we're favourites to sign him with West Ham also wanting him.
PompeyFcMad
Mad
We'll if Spurs are out of the way for our keeper .. Stoke have their pick then !! - But I did hear that Bego can not agree terms.. although he does want to go !!
Chix
isnt their any centre backs commin in then !! god help us if wilson and benhaim get injured plus herminator ..
pompeyhussler
Hussler
Coccoc .. Do you mean Cocis ?? .. Umm gone quiet on him
Chix
10:24 - Sky Sports Live at Fratton
Players are due to be paid today !
Chix
There was no sign of Mokoena at City yesterday? Any chance we're selling him? (pleeeze let it be so!)
tracyc
Jamo & Asmir haven turned up for Training YET!
PompeyFcMad
begovic and james not at training just ashdown and niemi ... pompey will only sell either begovic or james not both !! reports.. ssn
pompeyhussler
Tracy
Yeah I thought that but who would want him (lol)
Chix
Utaka wont go to Celtic, they have already snapped up 2 more forwards.. If Bego and James go, i wonder if Pompey are still looking at the Adelaide Utd goalie
nodster
SSN have said that Nosworthy is likely to sign on loan for us today.
PompeyFcMad
who's been driving the training dunce mobile lately?? little blue car
nodster
Nodster
I can't see James AND Bego both going.. although neither are at the training ground today ... Interesting !
Chix
some reports are that we are on the verge of swapping peter story with an egg sandwich. negotiations are going well with the egg sandwich. it will take on all of peters rolls at the club.
pompeyhussler
Well as for Jamo not training i remember Cappelo saying once that Jamo needs a day off after playing so that could explain why hes not there.
PompeyFcMad
Talk Sport saying that Burnley are back in for Nugent with a permanent deal !!! Jeez, I hope so ! PUP -- Whoevers left !
BarneyArmy
If Benjani moves on, I wonder if we were clever enough to have a sell on fee? Could that be more money for Bank of Faraj?
bluedr
Oh if only we could buy and sell owners and chief executives in the transfer window . . . For sale - invisible arab owner, no money or interest in the club, poor pr. Comes with dodgy israeli asset-stripper who has been convicted and banned from practice in his own country. Any offers?
tracyc
For sale - fake arab millionaire, comes with fake 'doctor' tag. Good at talking the talk. Doesn't actually do anything.
tracyc
i think a sell on fee is only profit on a player??
pompeyhussler
Hussler
What can we do to speed the Egg sandwich deal along ?
Chix
kezman has been spotted eating a micks monster burger up portsdown hill some reports are that hes sat next to adian mutu who is having a spliff.
pompeyhussler
Still think we should investigate a deal for Daniel Cousin at Hull.
bluedr
Mad
Fair point about Jamo... Remember at last deadline day he left the training ground and the journos went crazy speculating left right and centre ... He went to pick his kids up !!
Chix
Kezman will no doubt wash it down with a good old "oyster" from the verrichia van afterwards.......I don't care if he can challenge Mick Quinn in the pie stakes - can he score goals?
BarneyArmy
Barney
If Burnley can stump up for Nige .. It might save Asmir being sold .. here's hoping
Chix
cosis deal is still on and gonna be completed before 5 today.. some reports are that we have paid spurs 1million for him even though he was on a free and has no conection to spurs.
pompeyhussler
Tracy
Buying and selling owners (lol) .. but wouldn't they want to actually SEE what they are buying !
Chix
Hussler
I think Redknapp deserves a fee for Cocis .. After all he was once manager of Pompey
Chix
Bluedr
Tell us about Daniel Cousin then.. Is he a freebie or loan .. I haven't looked him up
Chix
redknapp made a deal with story that any pompey player sold in the next 25years he gets 10%
pompeyhussler
Hussler
Storrie denies that of course (lol).. anymore news on Kezman? .. What do you reckon .. goood bad .. indifferent !
Chix
Chix, not sure I think we may get either. It's a case of asking them? I think they have a bulging wage bill so may be happy just to offload. Can play centre back or up front so a double win.
bluedr
mullins to either boro or westham yes westham looks like its a possibility
pompeyhussler
i think we have to get more people out the door before we can even afford the loan fees and wages.... also depends on if someone takes nugent and dindane
pompeyhussler
Bluedr
Yeah .. Hull are in financial trouble aren't they .. so maybe .. Up front AND centre back... I wonder if he can play in goal as well !
Chix
Looks Like Jamo won't be going to Spurs as Harry has actullay said somthing good. He said he's looking for a No.2 goalie who will stay long term and that Jamo needs to play to get to the world cup. So looks like Spurs probs won't be getting him.
PompeyFcMad
Hussler
Mullins to West Ham .. There fans will love that .. I though Zola was supposed to know something about football (lol) - As for offloading some first didn't Jacob say one OUT two IN ??
Chix
Chix, I think any player that can play in multiple positions has to be a bonus.
bluedr
pompeyhussler I like that one about the egg taking on Peters rolls at the club. Saying that, with no canteen staff or food, is there any rolls available for the egg??!
dazza0410
Dazza
Never mind the rolls .. There is no gas to cook the egg !
Chix
Does the same apply to electric so could boil the water in a kettle? Could we not negotiate that the egg comes ready cooked for convenience or some kinda naff deal? Saying that, they might put the value up.
dazza0410
Kezman now being talked about on Quay, saying sources confirmed talks going well? but this is the Quay so the source could be Moody lol. Scum Tickets no longer on sale online for anyone interested. James is the one likely to leave today as Begovich cant play for anyone else according to SSN, Suits me lol. 4 new players expected in by 5, but players can leave beyond 5pm deadline. 6pm in France, 8pm in "Some" other European Countries, and 11pm in Scotland? Why not the same for all i ont understand? but thats on SSN earlier
Midge
What about the loans lined up by Grant before the transfer embargo? Isn't this what he said: "I've got deals lined up". Maybe Meteeb? And what happened to Dindane yesterday. Were was he?
Pompey Malta
Did anyone know that the Prince has a bro called Jerome Boateng? Apparently Citeh want him!
dazza0410
chix - i'm not sure if we have any gas, but there's certainly a lot of hot air around the club!
pompeycarpet
Benjani is in talks with Blackburn.
PompeyFcMad
dazza apparently Jerome Boateng is pretty tasty.
bluedr
breaking news the egg has just pulled out of the deal !! he was worried that he would just be sat around doing nothing he is a hard working boiled egg.
pompeyhussler
I hear were in for Bellamy, David Bellamy lol...
Midge
Dazza
I've been on the phone and all they will give us is a box of matches and a candle.. still it's better than nothing.. now just the rolls to sort out !
Chix
bluedr apparently this egg we would of signed would of been pretty tasty but the deals off now we are stuck with peter story.
pompeyhussler
Midge
Thanks for info on other European countries .. that puts a new twist on things.. 11pm in Scotland I wonder who we could get from Hamilton Accies !
Chix
Dazza
Re Boatengs brother .. That was a question in the last Vital Quiz.. The winner got a VIP Ticket to the Birmingham game .. that was called off !! .. Still there may (hint hint) be two Stoke tickets up for grabs very soon .. but you haven't heard it from me.. right !
Chix
looks like u are stuck here till 11pm then chix well their no change their then!!
pompeyhussler
Hussler
I'm gutted about the egg.. any alterantives... an old sausage.. a greasy bit of bacon perhaps .. or maybe a half eaten pie.. we wouldn't need a roll for that !
Chix
Midge
Grappling Grapenuts .. David Bellamy .. does he come with his opwn bush to hide in .. so the fenders can't see him creep up and stick the ball in the net !
Chix
Stop this tomfoolery !!! This egg thing is nothing but a yolk ! And we are ok in the egg department, well, we were until the caterers repossessed all the eggs! Is there going to be a last minute scramble for this guy? let's just hope we can poach him !! Aaagghh
BarneyArmy
Hussler
11pm .. So only eleven and half hours to go !!... Gonna need some lunch soon !
Chix
hahaha nice one barney all this egg talk and im hungry should i have scrambled egg on toast , poached egg , or dippy egg and soilders. i know i will have omlette and chips.
pompeyhussler
Jesus - if all the departures happen we may as well shut up shop now
WalshWasGod
11:42 - Barney
Tomfoolery (lol) ... I haven't heard that word since my old granny used to use it back in the 70's.. Your puns have 'fried' my brains ..
Chix
Walshwasgod
Hello mate .. Long time no hear.. Hope all is ok .. amyway .. Yep we could have Kev the kit-man up front by the end of the day ... and ya know that blonde bloke who collects the balls and tracksuits.. well he's centre-half I believe
Chix
It all seems to have gone quiet
PompeyFcMad
i'll bet ya nothing happenings! lol but seriously if anythings gonna happen its gonna be Asmir or james and HOPEFULLY nugent will sod off once and for all. be nice to get moteab as well but i don't see anyone coming in and if someone does it'll be a central defender hopefully
pompeym@
matt ritchie joins swindon onloan for the rest of the season.. another 1 out
pompeyhussler
Noo Not Matt Ritchie, he was so close of playing for the first team with him being on the bench or the last two games. But hopfuly next season. 5 Hours to go!
PompeyFcMad
12:00 - Nobody In Nobody Out
Except Matt Ritchie on loan to Swindon.. Humm at least we haven't sold him !
Chix
Right Chix, some ammendments to previous post (Teach me to listen in future). We can only sign players till 5pm, but we can sell till 6pm in Itally, 11pm in France and Spain, and 12am in Scotland? Seems strange to me as i would have thought it would be same across whole of Europe apart from time zones?
Midge
Ahh.. Midge
I was getting all excited ... Right so the question is who are we gonna SELL to Hamilton Accies then !
Chix
I've just heard that Spurs are offering 3 balti pies and a cup of Bovril for John 'PFC' Westwood. Reckon that's a good offer, but we could probably ask them to include a roll or two?
PFCGino
Well this is turning out to be not very exciting although the more players we don't sell is surely a good thing?
sneakay
Seems bit boring at the moment we seem to be talking more about selling and buying food then players lol
PompeyFcMad
Gino
Do the deal.. and make sure it include that ******** bugle !
Chix
Hi ya Sneaks
Not very exciting at all is it.. Rumours really low on the ground
Chix
Mad
That's true .. but never under estimate the importance of a sandwich .. or an egg role... anybody heard anything about the ESPN report and the 'potential' new owners..
Chix
12:43 Deals off !
Oh.. some news... Mido deal is off and so is Emad Moteab - That was rumoured on Friday but now seems to be confirmed now
Chix
There is a thread on Spurs urging them all to be better fans (like Pomoey). I spect that is why they want Westwood. Could we get Image Rights?
gandor1
Damn wanted moteab aswell was a great player in the african nations. Wouldn't of minded Mido either.
PompeyFcMad
Gandor
Can't see that we'd get much .. ten bob a month and a meat pie ... there I go .. on about food again..
Chix
Well I'm off for an egg sandwich, seeing as nothing is happening at the moment.
tracyc
Moteab/Mido, with these off looks like Kezman might be the only addition today then?
bluedr
Chix - Every little 'elps!
gandor1
I see Scummer tickets have sold out...the official site has confirmed, so I guess they must b payin up their fees! With Kezman his record want great at Chelsea, 4 goals in 24 appearances so 1 in 6! Should fit in nicely then at pompey!
dazza0410
Westwood deals off! he ate the fee and washed it down with lager.
Steve C
Aparently West Ham are closing in on Mido, could be a reason why we couldn't get him.
PompeyFcMad
So apart from egg sanwiches what is everyone having for lunch? I have the old favourite Tommy Soup. Comparable to Linvoy Primus really, dependable, never gives up, and will still be there after all these 'fad' soups with exotic flavours have been and gone. Put the soup with some doorstep cut bread and I have a solid lunch that will defend from hunger well.
sneakay
Malta that's a good point. AG said he had a shortlist and was just waiting for the embargo to be lifted. More bull*****?
PFCblue
PFCblue, it was a shortlist. Moteab and we cant get him!
bluedr
13:00 - 4 hours to go !
Not looking good people .. Nobody in and our lined up deal are falling through - I heard eariler that Nosworthy prefers Sheffield Utd to us and I've just got a text to sa *Shittu is off the table now too... So Kezman.. and Cocis look like the only ones we know of .. unless of course Miguel Vitor comes out of the woodwork..
Chix
lol blue. It's a quiet final day all round innit.
PFCblue
4 Hours To Go! And Still not one player in!
PompeyFcMad
Avrams List
Don't forget he had three Italian/Brazillians on that list ... Could it be that he's concentrating on brnging all of them in ..
Chix
Sneaks
Toomy Soup .. Where does he play ?
Chix
I would guess from the fact that he was mouthing off this morning about not being able to buy players means that he has no loan signings coming to us at all.
sneakay
Hi Sneakay - if you fancy Westham on Saturday instead of the Birmingham game (which is now an evening) just let me know. Geoffrey's alright about it. Although now I come to think of it, you can choose any game you like - he;s all Pompeyed out!
gandor1
Cousin to Greek side Larissa, that's all my rumours done for. Oh no there's still Al-Habsi from Bolton if we lose Jamo/Asmir.
bluedr
Gandor
Are we playing West Ham again then (lol) .. Maybe we can beat them this time !!
Chix
Blackburn Are In Talks With Lens about getting Aruna Dindane. Also looks like Nugents off back to Burnley as SSN have said that the papaer work is done, but nothing confirmed yet.
PompeyFcMad
I spend all morning away, come back and............Nothing...Not a sausage...Flat as a fried egg!!
pentonpompey
Well whoever we are playing on Saturday. They are very beatable, whoever they are - I remember thinking - we are going to beat them!
gandor1
Just been to see if I could maybe have a nice fried egg sandwich for lunch. But mine went out of date on the 8th January...... Vile powdery diet soup it is then - nothing else in the house. (I hope they have put the catering equipment back by Saturday).
gandor1
Mad
What do we want Dindane for .. Unless of course they are binding us to the 4million agreement - What a waste that would be.. come to think of it we can't buy can we.. So must only be a loan extension
Chix
Yeh hope blackburn or some other club get dindane, although he could be a back up striker if we don't get one today. I mean more opition of the bench, the better, even if it is dindane.
PompeyFcMad
Nosworthy
Confirmed that he has gone to Sheff Utd.. So no Central Defender then.. Oh dear looks like we are stuck with (don't panic) Wilson & Tal (Has) Ben Haim .. and Herman out for three weeks too !!.. Still not like we are up against MAnchester United anytime soon is it !!
Chix
Great no central defender, We're buggered! I meanas you said we have ben haim and wilson, but they can never replace kaboul.
PompeyFcMad
Mad
And don't forget Celtic were hot on Wilson too .. Still I don't think that will come to anything.. makes you wonder why we sold Williamson.. He could not have been that bad .. He's straight in the Newcastle side FFS
Chix
Ben Haim and Wilson v Rooney and Nani. Oh my Lord!
hammersmithblue
hows about this!!!!Valencia are awaiting a fax from Portsmouth to confirm a loan deal for Manuel Fernandes until the end of the season
ruffcider
How much did we get for williamson anyway? Bet it was nowhere near a profit of that 3m we wasted on him.
PompeyFcMad
that was according to guillem balague
ruffcider
ruffcider is there any truth in that Fernandes deal?
PompeyFcMad
http://www.guillembalague.com/rumores_desp.php?titulo=Portsmouth+close+to+loan+move+for+Fernandes&id=263
ruffcider
Fernandes, looked a good player at Everton. Thought he was still there!
bluedr
I think Sir Alex wont want to "Batter" us ! so I would expect to see a second string Utd out next weekend.......just like us in many ways!!!!
BarneyArmy
ild be happy if we got kezman and fernandes
ruffcider
13:45 - Manuel Fernandes
Yep I've just seen that one too fellas.. I've got to pop out for about an hour so .. Keep it ticking over and I want to see at least one signing IN by the time I get back..
Chix
Gary O'Neil
Just heard that we have approach Boro about a loan for GON.. they are not playing ball at apparently.. I heard this on Friday and thought it was rubbish but it seems 'official' enquires were made but Boro laughed us out the door ..
Chix
Well Found ruffcider, put Fernandes on your in list chix, looks like a possiblity.
PompeyFcMad
Guillem Balague is a reliable source! He would be a good signing but has had injury problems recently at Valencia.
eastneydave
Ah bloody Boro would of been great to have O'Neil back.
PompeyFcMad
I imagine will be looking to fill that second loan available to him this afternoon and will be ringing his contacts now.
eastneydave
Nugget back up north according to SSN
hammersmithblue
Vital Burnley have said this 'Portsmouth have agreed to extend David Nugent's loan to the end of the season'
PompeyFcMad
and we're about to sign a portuguese bloke on loan - Fernandes
hammersmithblue
he was just about to sign for inter then he heard portsmouth were paying him ten egg sandwiches a week. so he got on a plane and sign for us. dream on
pompeyhussler
Ten? that's a lot of hovis
hammersmithblue
Mad - Chix is out having a pint!! So I have added Fernandes for you!! Tell him when he gets back cos I am off to work boo hoo!!
eastneydave
DAVID NUGENT .....I can just imagine it now last game of the season us sat on the same points as burnley we are drawing 1-1 so are burnley and in the 90th min nugent pops up with a goal to send us down and keep us up.. then his loan ends and hes a pompey player again in the championship.
pompeyhussler
pompey cant afford hovis its the tesco bread with the blue strips on it ... 11p a loaf
pompeyhussler
pompey reject 3m bid for begovic breaking news...
pompeyhussler
3 hours left! No Players In & 2 players out.
PompeyFcMad
james was at training today....
pompeyhussler
Reject 3m for begovic, i assume that was from Stoke.
PompeyFcMad
Keep rejecting that Begovic Bid and sell the kitchen sink !!!!
BarneyArmy
Cant happen Hussler he's not allowed to play against us.
Steve C
sorry hussler just read that again i misunderstood what you were saying.
Steve C
just thought i would remind everyone of another of mark jacobs promises: for every player that leaves, we'll bring two in - how many players have left, and how many does that mean we are going to sign in the next two and a half hours?
pompeycarpet
not against each other just the last game of the season stuck on same points we both need a winner to climb out of the relegation zone and nugent comes up with it. that can happen
pompeyhussler
mark jacobs is a co(k
pompeyhussler
Carpet, our physio must be a busy boy if Jacobs is to be taken seriously.
bluedr
Everything seems to be happening up north and not much down south.
PompeyFcMad
Cocis is out of contract isn't he - a free agent and so isn't restricted to signing in the window (we are probably waiting to see who else we can get in first). PUP
NorfolknBlue
just had lunch eggy bread was wow nice....
pompeyhussler
2 Hours To Go! And Still NO ONE IN!
PompeyFcMad
God i'm bored.............I can see the Fizzy Pop looming ever close...
pentonpompey
ive got a bad feeling were not gonna get anyone
ruffcider
haha see i said bugger all was gonna happen :P
pompeym@
Apart from the good news about Beg it's been let-down Monday so far.
PFCblue
p.s i honestly don#t think i'd be upset if the window closed right now, O'hara and quincy in and kaboul out with nugent, ritchie out on loan, its really not as bad as most had thought and i'm reasonably happy although we could do with another centre back pretty badly
pompeym@
SSN 'understand' that we are trying to sign two loan plyaers still. We may yet see some sort of action.
sneakay
We MUST get a centre back!! unless we want to see the Axe playing there every week.
eastneydave
they also understand that stoke have enquired into james AGAIN! maybe their willing to pay his wages this time lol
pompeym@
sunderland want james !!!!
pompeyhussler
Sunderland enquiring about Jamo. Surely he could not get to Sunderland that quickly!
sneakay
15:09 - I'm Back
Had to go and see my five year olds classroom.. So what has happened them.. Nuge loan extended and Fernandes is still pending a fax .. Is that it ?
Chix
Yep heard that and apparently one of them is a stiker.
PompeyFcMad
Bego or James??
So who is gonna go .. My vote goes to James.. Begovic staying is part of a plan mee thinks
Chix
he has a flying eco friendly car its like chitty chitty bang bang
pompeyhussler
Also Chix SSN has said we are still in talks to get two loan signings and as i said above one of them is a striker.
PompeyFcMad
Mad
A striker and a centre half would be good and Manual Fernandes to create a little something .. Any truth that he was gonna sign for Inter but failed a medical .. Is he fit ???
Chix
what we all want to know chix what did u have for lunch..
pompeyhussler
Hussler
Nothing mate .. not a sausage .. but Prawn stir-fry for dinner about 8 o'clock
Chix
I thought you might have been heading down to the ground to give us some on the spot reporting. The guy from SSN looks like he needs some company as it has so far been a quiet day for him.
sneakay
egg fried rice??
pompeyhussler
Kezman
What's happening .. again .. Nothing more heard that I can find ..unless he is the striker SSN are talking about
Chix
that would be wow funny someone just get down their and get on ssn.
pompeyhussler
the quay were saying that more clubs have now come in foe manuel
ruffcider
best outcome at 5pm kezman, fernandes and belleti onloan
pompeyhussler
worst outcome 5pm none in....
pompeyhussler
Sneaks
I wish I could be down at the ground.. might have got some scummers tickets then.. Opted for t'internet and got nowt !
Chix
Ruffcider
Have they said who else has come in for Fernandes ?
Chix
Hussler
So you're sticking Belletti back in the mix then eh... Not Sturridge then?
Chix
no they didnt
ruffcider
15:30
Tumbleweed.. I'm going for a fag !
Chix
my mate john has just passed gary oniel giving benjani a piggy back on the m27.
pompeyhussler
What about Miguel Vitor, we need the cover at the back?
moley2
Hussler
I'm glad it's not the other way around.. Benji would get lost like he did last time !
Chix
I thought Vitor might have been one to come in as well moley. Who is this Tumbleweed you take about Chix? Is he a centreback? lol
sneakay
miguel vitor plays for benfica and we already have yebda onloan from them ... so thats a no no. unless yebda leaves.
pompeyhussler
Moley
Vitor was one that I was certain would come off .. Now it just seems to late in the day.. We haven't heard a sniff about him all day .. Still .. Over a hou still to go !
Chix
well 1 hour and 22 minutes if you want to get a bit more acurate Chixy.
sneakay
I'm sure it said on ssn that the deadline in england is 5pm but it's later for other european countries, even midnight in scotland, so there may be movement after 5?
moley2
Sneaky
Picky .. Another quiz coming soon hopefully .. Tickets for the Stoke game ...should've done it today.. been sat here all day (well since 9am) with Websites running, phone on, telly on .. the most boring Transfer Day I've ever done .. I didn't expect much .. but COME ON
Chix
Moley
Movement after 5pm is only OUT .. Rumours are that we have four players lined up to be sold to Hamilton Accies !!
Chix
Yeh but only to sell to other euro countries you can't buy after 5pm.
PompeyFcMad
Mad
Snap !... I can not believe we haven't even got a youngster in from the Gunners or Chelsea .. So much for Avrams contacts eh !
Chix
this is the most dull transfer deadline day i've ever seen. time to go shopping I think...
pompeycarpet
Why can they buy then? Did their window start after ours?
moley2
Carps
Most shops are shut now mate !


Moley
No idea mate but it's different time for different countries.. might be something to do with the banking systems.. But I really don't know !
Chix
fernandes having medical at pfc .. .well according to wiki
pompeyhussler
15:53
Well nothing in the offing whatsoever .. James to Sunderland ..perhaps .. What about Billy Belhadj .. all quiet on that side of things..
Chix
good old wiki!!
ruffcider
Hussler
That reliable source .. Look up Razvan Cocis !!
Chix
marco di vaio ???
pompeyhussler
Hussler
Are you sure ??? Five years ago perhaps .. Is he still alive ? - Where is he now ?
Chix
Well thats somthink hussler.
PompeyFcMad
ONE HOUR TO GO
Re Marco di Vaio he used to score goals for fun.. no idea what he is like now .. but he's a Bologna I'm hearing .. Is that right ?
Chix
benjani has been spotted on a pogo stick bouncing up easton road.
pompeyhussler
ONE HOUR LEFT! HURRY UP POMPEY!
PompeyFcMad
There's something on SSN about Pompey reporting Stoke and Bego's agent to the Prem League . . . And they've rejected the 3M bid from Stoke. Yay! Blimey the guy by the megastore looks cold and p'd off!
tracyc
I've got a Sony Vaio - any good?
PFCblue
Tracyc
I think it's the second transfer day he's stood there and nothing has happened !.. Great job !
Chix
Blue
(lol) Can it score goals ?
Chix
what a boring last hour... !
FootyFans
I reckon Pompey are holding back on their announcements until 4.59pm so that Harry cannot get in and scupper the deals.
bluedr
Footyfans
Been a bit of a boring (and very long) day... to be honest
Chix
Bluedr
You just can't trust that Redknapp bloke can you ?.. Still I'd settle for 16:59 if something happened!
Chix
I have had 20 mins away from the computer - anything actually happening? Anyone taken a hotdog to the SSN man, it's almost dinner time!
sneakay
yeah, seems so Chix. Ideally a replacement for Kaboul and a new striker. Dreaming I think..
FootyFans
Just keep Begovic, that's all I want...
stooH
Chix where I am now it helps me 'score' ;-)
PFCblue
Chix, he has been very quiet today. I'd bet he has one last surprise up his sleeve and could see it being Michael Owen on loan??
bluedr
chelsea in late begovic bid
pompeyhussler
Blimey - Begovic to Chelski?? Don't believe that one.
sneakay
Bego 2 chelsea now!
FootyFans
Omg SSN just said that Pompey in the last few days have spoke to Chelsea about Asmir Begovic.
PompeyFcMad
Dindane having a medical at Blackburn Hoooooraaaaaay
pentonpompey
Sneaks
Don't mention food I'm starving .. Dindane having a medical at Blackburn !
Chix
Latest could be Asmir to Chelsea. Dindane is having a medical at Blackburn. If Asmir goes it will leave James in the position where he can't play more than 10 games without triggering the contract extension. (So negotiate it away, Jamo!). Asmir would only be second choice at Chelsea, at best, if he goes there.
tracyc
maybe that could be down to us asking for a player onloan from them and they said they want begovic.
pompeyhussler
45 minutes to go. Somebody go and clamp Begovic's car so he cant go anywhere.
sneakay
The Bego to Chelsea rumour was around two weeks ago but went quiet. Why go and be number two when you can be number one, unless it's money he wants. I hope he understands he'll have to sacrifice his wife/girlfriend to the skipper as initiation to the club.....
bluedr
Jeez you lot are like buses .. You all come at once ..
Yeah Bego to Chelsea .. I want to see there manager naked !!
Chix
Sneaky, there was talk in the summer of Chelski taking Beggo, something to do with having players in your squad raised in your home based league ...I think?
pentonpompey
soz Chix =d
FootyFans
Chix!!!!! Jeez man I never knew
pentonpompey
40 minutes to go
The only signing we are gonna make today is John Magnier ;)
Chix
Don't know what to think about the Begovic to Chelsea deal. We need him to stay, but then the club NEEDs to raise money this window - and if he's the only one anyone will buy? If its no Bego or no club?
tracyc
Chix, I hope you are right.
bluedr
He'll be alright it's a straight swap for John Terry and Frank Lampard. We pay them 50 a week and Chelsea top it up to their normal levels.
Steve C
Penton
Never knew what ?
Chix
I have an idea...No-one seems to buy players anymore, why can't agents register to be pimps and loan their ladies out to the highest punter...
pentonpompey
Steve
Wouln't want John Terry - He brings bad press with him .. disgusting behavoir for the England Captain.. fancy a man sleeping with a woman !!
Chix
Penton
(lol) I bet Avram will be first in the queue
Chix
That you were inclined to see middle-aged naked Italian men running around the local parks naked!!
pentonpompey
Tracy
Don't worry about the money .. It'll sort itself out in the next few days I reckon.. Too many whisphers of John Magnier for it not to be true
Chix
You know what, I miss Redknapp, at least with him you were guaranteed a flurry of signings, every single deadline day. Having said that it did get us into this position....
stooH
Pents
O I C .. forgot I mad that comment .. Stella must be kicking in !
Chix
Stooh
I know what you mean .. Something always happened on deadline day .. He always said he'd do nothing then went mad in the last couple of hours.. GON, Benjani, Defoe, Diarra.. oh.. dreams..
Chix
West Ham sign the Fat pie boy that is Micky Quinn....Sorry Mido
pentonpompey
Well that's Mido to WHU then. I think this will really be a wasted day for all of us. 8 hours of SSN just to hear that Nugget has gone to Burnley on loan.
sneakay
Blimey no wonder we can't get a striker in - West Ham have got them all!
tracyc
John Magnier must be selling lots of Cider to even consider taking us on!
pentonpompey
Wait
I hearing Cocis ...
Chix
What a waste of life sitting here wait for nothing to happen...I could of been doing something interesting like milking a cow or filling in pot holes...
pentonpompey
Wait again...
I'm hearing ..... Fernandes fax has been signed ..
Chix
Penton
Hpw many cows have you got then ?
Chix
it'd make a change to reading about cash strapped Pompey. if we had to read about him.
Steve C
just told the boss i'm not well and had to come home. what have i missed anything on a take over
coxy30
Don't Forget Fellas..
Although the transfer window closes at 5pm .. Out of contract players are not subject to that so .. we 'might' see some action after 5pm !..
Chix
Well Wiki says that we have signed Cocis! lol Bet that was you Chix.
sneakay
I havent got any, but I saw a few in Andover town centre an hour ago!!
pentonpompey
Coxy
Nothing 'official' on the takeover mate.. although I have had a few texts.. you ?
Chix
bbc radio surry confirm pompey will sell begovic to chelsea>>>
pompeyhussler
Sneaks
I'd love to say it was .. but I don't know how to do it !
Chix
Hussler
It's *********
Chix
What have you heard on the texts Chix? Anything you can let us know?
sneakay
O god, why are we interested in ruddy cosis? even his name sounds bad..
FootyFans
nothing chix. really thought we would of heard something this morning
coxy30
Been out all day at work, come home all expectant, and what? Nothin!!
paultsmouth
Chix, I really really hope you are right about Magnier!
tracyc
We can sell Begovic to Chelsea in a couple of years when he's worth 10m plus for now he can stay with us! Where are you hearing these things Chix, on your magic text-a-phone thingy?
stooH
I should have let Pompey know that I am off to Colchester for a meeting tomorrow. Surely there is a player or two in that sort of area that I could have brought back with me for now petrol costs to the club! lol
sneakay
Coxy
Nothing 'official' but there is substance behind the ESPN release last night .. I am sure of it .. too many people saying 'nothing' !
Chix
Chix, I seem to have missed the ESPN report. What was it saying?
bluedr
i bet everyone at pompey went to the pub at lunch time with the kaboul money and got drunk
coxy30
is benjani still at city ???
pompeyhussler
StooH
I can't (won't) say .. obviously .. and I will say that as many as I have got right I have got wrong .. but there is just something about the Magnier/Gadaffi deal that doesn't stack up..
Chix
FF beggars can't be choosers ;-(
PFCblue
Bluedr
I'll dig out the link for ya later .. but in a nutshell it (all but) confirmed there involvement in a bid.. I've tried and tried all day to get info out of people to today and they are soooo tight lipped it is unusal .. as I say nothing 'official' but I smell a fish.. or money !
Chix
Well that was rubbish from SSN.
sneakay
Benjani is thought to be on his way to Sunderland, but hasn't arrived yet - sound familiar?
tracyc
I wonder how many Fax machines the Premier League has?
bluedr
Will we doing a Man City and get Robinho in with new owners right at the end of the transfer window then Chix?
moley2
Re the James contract extension - if the automatic extension does get triggered, it just means they can sell him in the summer rather than let him go for a freebie. Might not get a lot for him, but might get a bit, esp if he plays in the world cup. So it shouldn't prevent him for playing.
tracyc
Chix could your 'smelly fish' be the reason we've managed to hang on to Bego (at the moment)?
PFCblue
SSN REPORTING CHELSEA JOIN BEGOVIC CHASE
pompeyhussler
cant believe we got no one!! the fella outside the shop has said nothing of incoming players, all about our goalies
ruffcider
Moley
Oh I wish.. well we have discussed John Terry today !!
Chix
Hussler
It's still ********* - Asmir is going nowhere.. Boardroom battles last night over Asmir.. He is staying put..
Chix
Bluedr
Just noticed your comment - See response to Hussler (above)
Chix
Chix I think you can update at the top that Nugent's loan to Burnley has been extended to the end of the season, I've seen a pic of him with the shirt.
tracyc
Nope Chelsea out of Begovic deal, we want 5m for Begovic and Stoke won't pay more than 3m. Tight northerners! Not that I'm complaining mid as I think he is worth a lot more.

Looks like no-one coming in today though, but at least (so far) we have not lost anyone either. Could this signal some sort of money influx?

sneakay
Ruffcider
I'm gutted we haven't (at least) got a talented youngster in .. a Traore or Wilshire or Sahar etc... I still hold out hope that Cocis will sign though
Chix
Anyway Begovic still can't play for 3 clubs in one season.
tracyc
Tracy
I forgot about that .. must do it in a mo ..
Chix
Boardroom battles eh? I like the sound of that, means that someone is fighting our corner, Storrie I guess? Don't get me wrong I do hold him partly culpable for everything that's gone on but I think he has the best interests of the club at heart and having a lame duck owner like Sacha in the past who said yes to everything hasn't helped. I'm not so keen to see the back of him as the majority of the rest of the fans.
stooH
Come On Get Someone Pompey!
PompeyFcMad
Sometimes the deals go through at the last minute but it can be a while after the deadline till we hear about them.
tracyc
16:58
Well if only Kaboul out could have been a lot worse ..
Chix
we could still sell begovic and loan him back .....!!!
pompeyhussler
how they can give avram no one......poor old avram. hes got no chance.
ruffcider
ITS 5PM HAVE WE GOT ANYONE?
PompeyFcMad
It's Shut
Well that was eventful !
Chix
Boooooooooo that was rubbish!
sneakay
I really hope there a couple of late faxes sitting on that machine for some loan deals or free signings...
stooH
One out, two in...
That's what Mark Jacobs said..
Chix
Doesnt look like it Mad.
tracyc
Right time to head home on the hope that we may announce something later.........hmmmm
sneakay
Dindane stays at Pompey as well :(
sneakay
we get to keep aruna...
FootyFans
Dindane is staying.
tracyc
Sod it we're stuck with Dindane!
pentonpompey
Dindane
Move broken down.. Can he play for us ?
Chix
Begovic is going to Stoke, great.
PompeyFcMad
Looks like Beggo could be gone.....
pentonpompey
Oh no, it does look like Asmir might be on his way. . .
tracyc
looks like begovic mite have gone to stoke...
pompeyhussler
I'd of thought he can only stay with us if Lens decide not to recall him, depends on what we agreed with them re payments and also who's picking up his wages I guess.
stooH
well looks like no one is coming to a club thatfails to pay players, goes in to administration, and then gets relegated, looks like Begovic has gone....no one in no manny no east europeans,,,no one at all
plymouth graham
Begovic
Don't believe the guy on Sky .. he's making it up purely for effect ..
Chix
no one
ruffcider
It certainly looks that way Sneakay otherwise i think we'd be taking anything offered.
Steve C
Any chance we have got someone but Pompey haven't announced it yet?
PompeyFcMad
As long as the transfer's registered by 5pm but the negotiations can continue after. So we may hear of some late moves.
PFCblue
Stooh
That's what I thought but surely Lens won't let us play him as we have welched on the previous deal .. It's an odd on .. and I don't know which way it will fall
Chix
Late deals
Nothing in the offing whatsoever - Is what I have from all sources .. except Sky keep going on about Begovic which I am choosing to ignore
Chix
BOR-RING.
FootyFans
dindanes wages must be high for talks to fall through with birmingham and blackburn.... but he will go back to us and we will have to keep paying them wages..
pompeyhussler
what an anti-climax.Players could still leave though - just not to english clubs.
pompeycarpet
Hussler
It was a season long loan.. but because of the 10 game rule I'm not sure how we stand .. Although I don't rate him .. I'd rather have him or not .. but only on loan .. not for 3m !
Chix
SSN seem to think that Stoke made a last minute bid for Begovic, god I hope not !!! but reporter is outside FP waiting to confirm no no no no no no !
BarneyArmy
so have the powers that be thrown in the towel and arent even gonna give avram a chance? looks to me like either hes been told no more in or the premier league wont allow it after our 4th non payment of wages.
ruffcider
Beg gone to Stoke for 3m R5Live
PFCblue
fecking better not have!
pompeym@
To be fair it's down to the player to choose to come here as well and who in their right mind would want to come here, I suspect that any clubs we were dealing with would of insisted on us paying the wages as I doubt we'd be paying loan fees. So Mr New Signing comes to talk to us and first question is "Who's paying my wages, you or my parent club?", "oh you is it, no thanks i'll stay where I am".
stooH
Well that was a waste of my dad, can't believe we haven't brought any players in today. We have only got one player in this window and hes not gonna change the team.
PompeyFcMad
ha my day not my dad lol
PompeyFcMad
A waste of your dad, mcfad? Did you make some pact with the devil or something?
stooH
ha nah i meant my 'Day'
PompeyFcMad
sorry but i really don't see how anyone can be that disappointed with only losing Kaboul and getting O'hara back along with quincy, agree we needed a centre back but with our finances it was never gonna happen. and to be fair on form we didn't really need to change the team that much anyway, with the african boys back we should be ok (i hope lol)
pompeym@
Don't think theres any chance Pompey will annouce a signing. However could still get Cocis as he is a Free Agent.
PompeyFcMad
Beggo gone!!!!
pentonpompey
So is Beg still a blue?
paultsmouth
Begovic
Oh Bugger
Chix
The French window hasn't shut yet so we could still loses one or both of our Algerians
yellowcheesemonkey
Begovic has signed for Stoke! FFS!
PompeyFcMad
SSN now reporting, that their sources state that Begovic has signed for Stoke in a deal thought to be worth 3.5M. Oh CR@P !! Ripped off again, all because of lousy management!
BarneyArmy
YCM
You are of course correct .. although neither linked to any French clubs..
Chix
Barney
Why bad management ?
Chix
pompeym we cant score
ruffcider
Ruffcider
That's my worry .. More than goalies .. and nobody to create anything either .. Other than perhaps O'Hara
Chix
dissapointed no signings apart from o'hara + quincy. I see bego gone , other going tonight abroad , no manager end of week , and end of month no pompey !!! :( R.I.P PORTSMOUTH F.C
Football_Casual
Begovic
I'm still in disbelief as Stoke won'tbe able to play him.. I don't get it
Chix
lol chix, did you really have to ask that question? lousy management to get us into the situation where we need to sell, then lousy management again not to negotiate an even half reasonable fee!
pompeycarpet
I want Pompey to come out and say why we haven't got any players today. Did they get them late? Players didn't want to come? or was it that They couldn't be bothered to get any?
PompeyFcMad
Casual
Bit dramatic.. If could of been a lot worse.. and Avram won't leave..
Chix
having said that, i'm not seeing any news about the deal online - other than one mention of it on 5live...
pompeycarpet
FFS ain't that typical Pompey, get your hopes up and then C*** all over you.
Steve C
Carps..
I know I've been on about him not going all day .. But I will be very surprized if he has actually signed for Stoke .. Given that Storrie Grant and Jacobs were all going crazy about it last night .. they were ALL agruing with Agouzy apparently
Chix
Carps
Re Begovic.. I (still) don't believe he has gone .. but if 3.5 million then although we 'might' of got more .. if he'd have gone for that in the Summer we would have been laughing .. He's only been hot for a couple of months.. before that he was just a reserve
Chix
Chix it's been announced twice on R5Live
PFCblue
Blue
And I'm hearing now sanctioned by the EPL .. but nearer 4 million
Chix
Sky sources have said that he has gone aswell.
PompeyFcMad
Carps has said it all Chix ! But even keeping Begovic might have been a glimmer of hope. Theyve sold the Past, Now they've Sold our Future........Only our History left now.....and this bunch of muppets might even ruin that.
BarneyArmy
chix, anychance you can lighten my mood with these rumours of take over explained?
ruffcider
any rumours on grant quitting?
ruffcider
Chix thanks for that marathon effort, pity it turned into such a damp squib.
