Striker Transfer Talk Heats Up

Striker Transfer Talk Heats Up


The transfer gossip has reached its normal peak and the window isn’t even open until June the 1st.

Tottenham have spent the most money so far, spending over ten million pounds on a striker, which naturally means that Defoe is on his way to Pompey, of course!

Other Strikers that have been linked to Pompey and how likely I believe these to be;

Andy Johnson- (90%) I believe that there is a high chance of Pompey making a move for this player.

Benni McCarthy- (90%) With Harry watching him play this looks like a real possibility.

Lee Trundle (70%) I believe that this is less likely although Harry did say he would have a look in the summer, Lee hasn’t impressed the second half of the season.

Defoe- (5%) I would have said 0% however Tottenham have just signed another striker, you never know!

My opinion- One of the above will sign (probably Andy or Benni) and one other mystery player from somewhere.

Redknapp said: "I've seen some good players, it's just whether we can get them and what the situation is, I need to talk to the chairman on that one.

"I don't want to name names. I could do without other clubs getting wind and coming in ahead of us.

"That's happened to me too many times in the past," he told the News.

One that can score 15 goals plus in a season would be nice.

Glad to see Pompey awake and well, AJ $7m not money well spent IMO, check out Liverpool "For Sale" in a couple of days. Harry is obviously on the hunt, Tunisia and 3 tip offs reported. I await with interest.

Pompey WILL NOT climb into the top 3 this weekend - whatever Carlisle do - as the game at Crawley has been called off.

Lalkovic heads to Ross County

In a somewhat odd move - admittedly he's not been involved that much - Pompey's former Chelsea & Walsall winger Milan Lalkovic has joined Ross County on loan.

Crawley in doubt

Pompey have the chance to move into the automatic promotion places - if we beat Crawley and Carlisle fail to win - but the elements might rob us of this possibility?
