What about dindane?
tuscan3000
Doomed...I can't see 10 goals being scored by the strikers we now have. To be honest, I would rather go down with a load of good youngsters like Matt Richie,scrapping for the cause than watch a bunch of mediocre journeymen run around like headless chickens Sorry, just depressed at watching Pompeys future being sold for peanuts.
yellowcheesemonkey
Well we can still get free transfers if there are any worthwhile ones out there within our wage budget.
pompeywa
Tuscan
We just don't know the position regarding Dindane .. I don't know if he can play for us or not .. I'm awaiting somebody to tell me something official
Chix
We're only going to stay up if we start scoring goals, we haven't signed any prolific strikers this window - so you'd have to say no we're not going to stay up. Coupled with a weakened defence, our chances look slimmer.

Survival as a club is key, anything else is a bonus.
stillthewhizz
YCM
I must admit it's looking bleak - I'm still not too bothered about Begovic as we need the money and consdiering he wasn't worth a penny six months ago I can see why they would sell him while he's hot
Chix
Furthermore looking at what we still have a large number of players are coming up to the end of their contracts: James, Niemi and Ashdown are all in their last year I believe. Ward, Hermann, Wilson and VB for defenders. O'Hara, Basinas, Yebda of the midfielders. Piq, Quincy and Kanu for forwards.
pompeywa
But that is getting a little ahead of ourselves.
pompeywa
I'm looking at a squad that is Championship material bar maybe 3 players ! also, quite a few are injury prone (or at that age). Who knows, we may see a bit of movement still - Crikes ! I hope so..... But, you're right....not worth dwelling on it.....I'll support whoever pulls on the Blue and puts in a decent shift...PUP
BarneyArmy
did ok against citeh, got to be in with a chance if no scottish or european clubs nick any more, and if these get paid and do not -within thier rights- sod off for free to another club, and if we do not go into administration, or go into liquidation...
plymouth graham
Wa
Yep we can get freebies and I'm (still) hoping that Cocis will come in that way.. and maybe another one or two
Chix
we should have gone into admin a while ago all i can see, the longer this gets dragged out, is next season (if there is one) being affected. I now have a dislike for anyone wearing stupid tea towels on their heads for no apparent reason
Super Bock 1898
Wizz
HAve to agree completely with you .. I'm gutted we don't have a goalscorer - Has many times to you hear Hansen and co say "If thye can score goals they have a chance of staying up.. and in that instance they are normally correct
Chix
My God what a complete shambles. Apart from us is there anything decent left of PFC. bye , bye, bye, bye,..........."I am now at a new level" Cheers Storrie!!
Mike1954
it's not that different to before the window - Kaboul is a big loss - Asmir is VERY sad but not really a reduction in 1st team ability as he could just as easily go on a bad run of form and Jamo is probably right now the better all round keeper when fit. Biggest worries are - no recongised right mid brought in, lack of fire power up front (let's see how utaka and Dindane do with a good run of games) and a new CB pairing having to find each other... certainly we sounded solid against city unitl TB and MW got mixed up fort he first goal. We have the team there to beat any and all of the bottom 12 on our day... a few years ago we were further adrift with Redknapp having to reshape a worse squad with Mendes, Parmaot and Davies brought in... arguably this side is stronger.
jim4pompey
Wa
I hadn't though of that to be honest .. Need to check a few but your list seems right.. Not looking good is it
Chix
Mike
Don't think you can lay all the blame at Storries door
Chix
Barney
Yep supporting the shirt .. whoever wears it is the key .. as long as they battle hard and work their socks off for the cause I'll be happy .. Even if we do go down
Chix
Ply Graham
You're all 'if's' and 'buts' .. but probably right !
Chix
jim i would argue with you all night that his team is nowhere near as strong
Super Bock 1898
we can sign out of contracr players...not all frees
plymouth graham
Jim
Arguably .. this side is stronger .. I don't see that .. If O'Hara is the Mendes .. Who is the Davis.. Who is the Taylor.. who is the Benjani .. Sorry mate .. I just can't see it ..
Chix
Superbock
Sorry mate I missed you .. I'm still convinced Al-Fahaj will not concede and adminstration will not happen.. I sometimes (like you) wish it had .. but fro a team point of view we would have been far worse off .. At least we have a fighting chance this way .... I'm talking solely about premiership survival rather than survival as a club
Chix
What's the score with Tommy Smith? Injured / Avraham doesn't fancy him / any more games and we owe Watford more money. I really hope we give Ward, Ritchie and the other youngsters a chance - surely they're going to be key to our survival next season?
stillthewhizz
Wizz
Smith is injured at the mo ... Ritchie has gone to Swindon on Loan for the rest of the season.. Agree with you about Joel Ward though
Chix
Superbock
Looks like Jim has a couple of arguements coming up ... It'll be an interesting debate ..
Chix
Ply Graham
Yep .. You are right .. Out of contract players too .. but what does that say about them ?
Chix
CHIX - Yebda for Davies, Benjani didn't have his decent scoring season until the next year - Boateng for Taylor... or even Belhadj... at the back we were playing the irish guy last game of survival season: 33 Dean Kiely (James +) 6 Brian Priske (Van Borre +) 2 Linvoy Primus (Wilson -) 3 Dejan Stefanovic (Ben Haim =) 14 Matthew Taylor 1 (Herman =) 26 Gary O'Neil (Tommy Smith -) 28 Sean Davies * (Yebda/ Brown ???) 11 Noe Pamarot s 30 Pedro Mendes * (Boateng. O'Hara =) 22 Richard Hughes s 4 Andres D'Alessandro 25 Benjani Mwaruwari 1 (Dindane/ Utaka??) 9 Svetoslav Todorov * 24 Wayne Routledge hmmm... we look back fondly on these guys because they saved us - I don't see anything that is that much better than what we've got
jim4pompey
chix, lighten my day by telling us what this other take over rumour is about.....i need it
ruffcider
I think your wrong about Begovic Chix, I have it on good authority that he was very highly rated by the club, Begovic might not have been worth anything 6 months ago but he'll be worth double what we got for him by end of the season.
Steve C
If we are lucky with injuries then I like what we've got. As long as we can keep Avram at the helm and keep the team spirit up we have a bit of hope and can enjoy ourselves a bit. Keeping Pompey alive is the most important objective
Pompeyscum
hey guys. ive ummed and arred a lot these last few days. my personal life is a bit of a mess (financially) people have screwed me over that i thought shouldnt have. needless to say im quite cynical now and see things in a different light. now regards to my poll ----> i voted for the fa/prem lge because i feel like they have let us the fans down by employing a NEW fappt and it has just miraculously failed. twice. i was so incensed by the fact we had sold begovic (which we hadnt then) that i had to blame someone. but this is my position and logic now. this IS what I want to do. i thought (in case of no admin/liquidation) that the best way to move up in teh football world was to get the foundations correct. well, isnt this what is happening. our wage bill is too high for the income produced so it needs to come down. we are cutting costs. is it being done in the right manner is another debate (dishing out debt to randoms with probably high returns, and the lack of management and communication (inter and outer)). we still need to sell the high earners (james, utaka etc) so why werent these sold. the only thing that is pishing me off is that we HAVE sold begovic. yes you could say 4m is enough. but that is not the point. he was a prospect. a future. a GOOD future. and probably not on a huge salary. therefore this concludes pompey: we are choosing the wrong person at the wrong time for the wrong price. but we will have to see where we are at xmas 2010 to REALLY know what kind of turd were standing in!!! pessimist out!
pompey--pessimist
But if you look at that squad what we did have going for it was D'Allesandro who arguably had his best form in his career for us. We have no real creative force, especially as Boateng is turning inconsistent.
pompeywa
Jim you are right when you say benjani wasnt scoring regularly, and the reason he didnt get stick for it wasnt just for his running and effort, it was because we were quite freely scoring from midfield to take the pressure off his barren run, which if you hadnt noticed that this years midfield is as barren as benjani with a blindfold on
Super Bock 1898
It seems Dindane isn't wanted by anyone, not even his own club! Anybody heard about an imminent Romanian player coming in?

I have no beans to spill, other than what I said earlier around the ESPN article and I will dig it out later I promise .. If I get time tonight I might make a front page article out of it ..

Steve C
I can't find what I said about Bego .. Was it about the fee ? anyway .. I'm not doubting his talents but I don't think we would have got that money for him in the summer irrespective of what David Coles thought of him .. His value has shoot up since Jamos injury in October .. I agree he'd probably be worth more at the end of the season but if we had to sell him now then is an ok price .. not great granted but much needed.. But don't get me wrong I didn't want him to go but still think had he have stayed and there wasn't the issues with James' contract he (Bego) would have been no2
Chix
Takeover rumour? What takeover rumour? New one to me especially with the departure of Beg. The squad will have to do just hope we can pay them week in and week out? That would keep morale up and hopefully better results.
eastneydave
Pessimist we couldn't sell James because nobody would take on the wages of a player who has very little sell-on value. There are also questions about his fitness. It was between James & Bergovic who was going to leave and Bergovic was the more saleable asset.

What I can't understand is, if Jamo is desperate to play at the World Cup, why doesn't he take a pay cut so that he can play regularly somewhere? In 9 games time we're going to drop him because we don't want to activate his contract renewal. I can't see him going to South Africa and I think this will be his final year in football.
stillthewhizz
Sorry Chix I can, Storrie is the Chief Executive, therefore he is accountable for the running of the Club, and it's results off the field. Don't say it's the owners, because they hired him for 1.4m per year which he negoiated for himself. A good CEO doesn't let bad decisions to be made without fighting against them, and if the owners ie Gydamak go ahead despite his advice then they resign. Not only did he let bad decisions be made, he then supported them. On thet basis he is accountable for the mess we are in and should resign or be fired. No wonder he's been sidelined no one trusts him to manage anymore, and rightly so.
Mike1954
Russ
Is your Romanian Cocis by any chance.. I've been hanging on this all day .. Heard anything .. I got a text (reliablility factor 60%) earlier saying we were interested but nothing since - I hope it comes off.. unless of course you have somebody else in mind
Chix
Mike
So why was Storrie and Jacob (yes Jacob) on the same side arguing the toss with Agouzy until late last night .. That's why I was certain Bego wouldn't go .. they all ganged up on Agouzy apparently ..S till it did no good.. As for Storrie generally .. he has his faults but his performance should surely be reviewed by those that employ him.. not us fans.. Still I know not many people agree with me on this but I just think he is so often the easy target .. unfairly ... And if he resigns we have who Agouzy .. Wonderful.. Sometimes I think it's better the devil you know.
Chix
james,borre,wilson,benhaim,herminator,prince,yebda,ohara, belhadj,freddy,utaka.. subs:ashdown,brown,mokoena,kanu,dindane,diop to keep us up thats the team we have just as good squads as hull wolves and burnley .... its just our defence i worry about now..
pompeyhussler
i worry about the defence too, but then the midfield and attacking options problems take my mind off it!
Super Bock 1898
Jim
You make some fair points ..s ome I don't agrue with .. rather than do it here I reckon we should put out thoughts into a front page article .. What do you reckon.. It's a good debate .. Needs a good airing I reckon.. Plenty of fat in that conversation... but I guess ultimately the proof of the pudding will be in the eating IF this side are as good (or better) they have less of a mountain to climb so we should stay up - eh :)
Chix
Pompeyscum
I agree keeping Avram is key .. he's obviously not doing it for the money either is he ... He's only been paid once since joining the club !
Chix
a big problem is that we dont even look like scoring against lower league opposition
Super Bock 1898
its just a shame that deal to swap storie with the egg sandwhich fell through. the egg sandwhich mite of found us an owner with real money.
pompeyhussler
Pess..
I do agree about 'selling our future' but if the future is in doubt .. what choice do you have .. I don't like it .. but I can see the (very short term) logic
Chix
Honestly??....That is a team heading one way...And that's down. Can't create and can't score!...End of! All these people harping on about Utaka our great saviour these past few weeks; Yeah Right! I see he was back to his spectacular best this week. The Yak, Defoe, Crouch Teddy, Toddy would all have buried his chance at Man City, thats what really good strikers do, and they do it week in week out, and they hit the target 95/100. Utaka, Webber, Piccy and Dindane are just playing at being strikers. We have a weakened back line, that was leaky before Janice went. It time to start getting accustomed to the taste of fizzy drinks i'm afraid
pentonpompey
Hussler
It's Ben Haim that frigthens me to death .. The mans no more a footballer than I am a ballet dancer .. other than that it's weak.. lacks creativity and we can't score goals .. If that's the team they ALL need to raise their game .. yes even the darlings O'Hara & Boateng
Chix

Just noticed that the egg sandwich joke is going .. that's nearly 12 hours .. Some kind of record I reckon ..
Chix

Sorry mate .. I stole your thunder we must have been typing at the same time .. Agree with you about the fire power and although it's grim my head is still firmly in the sand in term of Fizzy-pop talk .. I'm not going to enter into it all the time we are in the Premiership !... mathematically of course !
Chix
the one thing I wanted, to hang on to some shred of hope for the future was Begovic to stay . . . oh well! As long as money we get helps the club survive - that's all. And why is Azougy making the decisions - has he passed the F&PP?
tracyc
That's ok mate. I don't like talking or thinking about it either. I have come to the conclusion that's it all the same. I wish I could say even if we get taken over it will be ok. It won't of course; we're stuck with what we have, and it's not enough. It hasn't been all season so fat chance of my fabled fairy Godmother riding to the rescue. She's already too busy trying got find me more work. And a first class decorator like me as well...Hey i have an idea; I could email the club and see if any of the players want a top class decorator for their luxury pads........Wait...Shoot! none of them have been paid!!
pentonpompey
Pompey still after Fernandes on loan - R5Live
PFCblue
what chance was that? was it webbers chance? utaka played okay on sunday and he was playing against the richest club in the world as a lone striker with barely any service......he certainly looks our most threatening, at least he runs with the ball and not just hoofs it aimlessly, but he isnt gonna be as good as yak, defoe, crouch,teddy but he is our best chance...we should have borrowed a striker though,christ west ham got 3! im just glad that 'if one went out, two would come in' and they didnt have a missed opportunity when the window was open this time around..........can grant take much more?
ruffcider
Blue, that would brighten my mood a little; A good player, he can score as well, which might be just as well...
pentonpompey
Tracy
I think Agouzy IS making all the decisions but he isn't sanctioned as F&P by the FA .. All I can assume is that Storrie or Jacob must be signing them off .. There was a big disagreement by all accounts last night as they both stated they were not happy with the Bego situation .. Jacob and Storrie on the same side .. I'm still convinced Agouzy is working for Sasha !
Chix
Blue
That's good news.. it must mean that fax that was sitting waiting in the office at Valencia was signed and submitted then .. A creative spark .. that would be good .. Remember that goal at ..erm.. Mansfield (I think)
Chix
Ruffcider
As I said earlier Grant has only been paid once since he's been back .. The man is a God already as far as I am concerned .. he's working for nothing and I bet he's not the only one ..
Chix
Ruff, i'm not saying he didn't play ok, but just ok isn't enough anymore if we're to survive. we have scored 19 goals this season, and that is relagation form, there is no argument as far as i'm concerned. Our strikers are not doing what they are paid for. They are paid to score or assist and they have failed on a mammoth scale this season. Our strikers have scored 8 BETWEEN THEM, 6 have come from the defenders (if you inc Belhadj) and 5 from midfield. I'm certainly not having a dig at anyone, but facts don't lie and neither does our league position.
pentonpompey
Ohh what a fantastic Day No Scum Tickets , No Players in , No nvestors , No Hope , Thank F**k for Stella artois . Ah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! only two more can to go then thats one crate gone . what out smirnoff here i come
sea-juicer
I am surprised that no one has come in. But I am also surprised at not losing half of the squad! The problem with our squad is that now, we won't score a goal from corners and we cannot score from open play. So, we just cannot score!
Pompey Malta

I'm with you on Utaka .. but where there is life.. there is Utaka

We never score goals from corners.. I bet nobody can tell me that last time we did !.. You'll have to go a long (and I mean long) way back.. But anyway I agree goals is gonna be a problem !
Chix
It was Mansfield wasn't it? cracking goal! As for Grant; it's easy to say...Well he can afford it. But ask yourself; Would we work for nothing, knowing we could go anywhere and be paid a fortune? I take my non existent hat off to the man, i bet that's what's placating the players you know. I bet they're thinking, well if he's doing it, what the hell.
pentonpompey
Yes it was at Mansfield. Let's hope there is a big sell-on clause in Begovic's contract. PUP.
NorfolknBlue
Jesus chix, you have got one hell of a lot of comments to this... for what its worth, I do not see us as any weaker than we were before the transfer window to be honest. Sure loosing Jannice is a big shame, and I pray Harry didnt do a Krunchie with his fee too. This being said, getting O'Hara back is a big yes, and I honestly think that short term, this window could not have gone any better. look at who we could have lost, look at who was supposed to be off! With regards to goal scorer, I think Freddy has demonstrated his eye for goal, and with O'Hara back, and Avrams size 9s up KP's 'arris, maybe we can get a bit more in the way of service....I mean come on guys, even the legendary Uslaka seems to be thriving since we have stopped paying the man! (well I say thriving, I think more looking the least ripe out of a bunch of bad apples would be more apt). I think we will see over the next 3 weeks how the team looks with the ACON guys back, and Avram to really get some kind of stability back without the is he or isnt he going rumors cirulating. It all starts on Wednesday night at the cottage, anyone recommend any good local boozers for prematch drinks?

heard a rumour about Kezman and Manuel agreeing last minute but not seen it anywhere else.....
southportpompey
We have Quincy don't forget, lets see what he can do! When at the game yesterday I could see that he had acres of space yet nothing would go to him. When he did have it, he want afraid to cover a few yards running with the ball. As for the egg gag, that has been the highlight, I have been sharing the joke with the family, the mrs don't share the humour but the others had a chuckle. So, back to the egg, perhaps we could get ourself s a free agent then sack Story, just imagine the egg in meeting with Storie...Peter Storie... YOUR FIRED!

apparently we have sold Gauthier Mahoto to fc bastia in the last couple of hours (never seen him play was he any good)
Super Bock 1898
and apparently we have signed cb Ricardo Rocha unless its a wind up
Super Bock 1898
Jeez..
We still going on this thread .. Right I donj't believe the Fernandes and Kezman rumours .. I'd like to but I've got nothing on it to substaniate it .. but what is this about Mahoto .. and yes he is good Superbock ... and Ricardo Rocha .. surely not ?? .. that is a wind up innit !
Chix
Penton you say that Defoe & Toddy would both of buried that chance but i doubt statistics back that up. Toddy and Defoe are both wasted loads of chances but because they got more chances in the same game and scored those everybody convieniently forgets the misses. Give Defoe half a dozen chances in a game he might score a couple but give him just one chance and you have as much chance of him putting it over the bar as hitting the target.
Steve C
the rocha one is true i think as its on Standard Liege official website, apparently they terminated his contract so we could sign him
Super Bock 1898
and the mahoto is on numerous online papers just google his name. another highly rated prospect given away
Super Bock 1898
Curiously when you type Razvan Cocis into google it comes up with http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/en/spieler/43938/razvan-cocis/profil.html stating he is at Pompey with a contract until 2013, and wiki also names him as a pompey player (yes, I know that is publid declaration but?)

Well I've had a quick shufty and I aint buying Mahoto .. but I'll have Rocha as an in .. It is on the SL website as you said
Chix

Cocis has been down as a Pompey player on Wiki for about a week !
Chix
With the most inefficient strikers in the PL we need to create the chances, I can't see that 1 up front is going to do that; if they only score 1 in 7 chances ( a stat I read somewhere) then we are stuck with what we have and need to make more than 7 chances. For me it needs a change in the managers mind set; gent that he is.
russellm
mahoto is now on sky sports website
Super Bock 1898
im not buying the Kezman and Fernandes rumours either as they are actually good players, that if available would have gone to good teams to get paid !!
southportpompey

Both were heavily linked all day .. but at this late stage I just don't know.. but I doi believe Fernandes was just waiting on a fax at 3pm.. It might have got signed ... we'll see !

Mahoto looked a very good prospect - very precise passer... that's very disopointing if we sold him too.
pompeycarpet
fingers crossed Chix ! and re Mahoto - didnt do a lot wrong in pre-season for me.....
southportpompey

I though Mahoto played well against Rangers too and when he came on against Hereford .. still never really saw enough of him to make a real judgement.. and in fairness not every kid makes it through the ranks

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we are surely down now.
FootyFans
To be honest it does not matter who we are left with. We have what we have and it's up to the fans to get behind every single one of them, whether thats Utaka, Dindane, Ben Haim, Mokoena or even Mullins. We as fans can not afford to vent our fury on any player. If a player makes a mistake it is up to us to raise their confidence and make sure that they are giving everything they are capable of giving. Dindane and Utaka have both shown they have the quality if not the consistency so lets help them find the consistency by not getting on their backs when something doesn't work out. Ben Haim was a class defender at Bolton but his confidence took a knock so lets build it up again. If we do our job properly maybe we can help the team find that little extra and turn some of these narrow defeats into wins, just a couple of wins and things could look a hell of a lot better.
Steve C
Agree with tuscan on the comment about players like Ritchie Happy to pay my money and watch players giving EVERYTHING for the blue shirt Don't get me wrong ,i loved my Wembley times but am too much of a dumbass to have realised we would end up like this(mind u every team redshat has managed has had or faced administration,be some record to get the yids to that level but if anyone can do it he sure can) Id be happy on the terraces watching Pompey in the 2nd division if thats my only option Id even let the scum beat us if it meant having a club to support next season(but im greedy and want a great club and to smash the ****e out of the tw0ts) Those players named above ARE NOT THE WORST TEAM IN THE PREM,FACT!!! How u play them together to max effect is beyond me and i only want players on that pitch sweating their knackers off for us Finnan and dodgers like him can fark off Marc Wilson has his faults but id rather sing his name and make him play with passion than watch other ponces see their games out with no interest in the future
pompeymart1965
Sorry Chix, however, it's hearsay that Storrie argued with Agouzy late into the night. Anyway he lost didn't he because Berko was transferred. I don't like anything about these new owners and this bloke Agouzy seems empowered beyond belief. If Storrie had anything about him he would resign, as he has said already "his position in untenable" Unfortunatley he is like a beached Whale, flapping about without any power at all. As for better the devil you know, well I take issue with that, from what we know now he has done a pretty miserable job hasn't he, bad deals, ignored the Inland Revenue, recruited SAF, and Al Faraj, made a mess of the finances when he controlled them, Takes 1.4m a year for doing f all. Chix, don't be soft on the guy, it's business.
