Defensive Midfielder On The Way?

Defensive Midfielder On The Way?


Emana says he is close to joining Pompey. Toulouse's defensive midfielder Achille Emana has insisted that a deal is close to bring him to Fratton Park.

Emana said: 'Yes, Toulouse and Portsmouth are negotiating.”

'I have been playing in France for six years now, and I would like to know something else.”

'The Premier League is a fantastic championship, it interests me a lot.'

A fee has almost been agreed with Toulouse and it will then be down to whether Portsmouth can match the players demand. Peter Storrie has denied that a deal is close insisting that negations are in an early stage.

Do we need another central midfielder? Why are we going to sign this guy and offer Richard Hughes a new contract! We would then have three defensive midfielders. If Harry is trying to improve our defending we need defenders.

In other news- Harry will watch Zigic today to decide which of his four possible striker targets he will attempt to sign.

It's interesting that Arsenal were looking at Emana as a replacement for Viera last year.

Hary seems to view Gary O'Neill primarily as a right-sided somewhat-attacking midfielder. That leaves Davis, Mendes and Hughes to fight for 2 central (defensive) slots. Get an injury to one of them and Harry would start complaining he doesn't have enough defensive midfielders, wouldn't he?

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.

Debut delight...kind of!

It wasn't a result, and in many ways a performance, for Sheff United loanee Freeman to remember too fondly as he didn't really have a great game against Orient? Then again who did!

On this day in history...10th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 10th February.

Tubbs has left the building

Tubbs has finally left Pompey; perhaps his destination is something of a surprise then again there had been some 'rumours' recently of an Eastleigh interest.
