Centre Forward Deal On The Cards

Centre Forward Deal On The Cards


As you heard hear first last week, Portsmouth are intrested in John Hartson.

Milan Mandaric has admitted that Portsmouth are likely to join the race to sign John Hartson. Celtic have apparently accepted a bid in of £500,000 from West Bromwich Albion.

Redknapp signed the Hartson from Arsenal for £3.3 million in 1997.

'I need to clear it with Harry,' Mandaric told the Daily Record.

'He still admires John and if he is interested, we will see if we can bring Hartson to Portsmouth.'

Hartson, who has netted 88 goals in 125 starts at Celtic Park, was shocked on Wednesday after hearing that Celtic had accepted a bid for him.

Blackburn have also been linked with Hartson and the possibility of linking up with his former national coach Mark Hughes and player, Craig Bellamy and Robbie Savage.

Celtic are expected to make life hard for Pompey by demanding more money for the player. People inside the club say the player hasn`t been mentally there since January, this is largely blamed on Portsmouth within the club.

he would be a good signing and would come pretty cheap. i think he can still crack it in the premiership

I think it would be a terrific signing and would be cheap, he's a target man, just what we need

Cheap? Not sure his wages would be... Over rated in an over rated team in an awful league IMO!

Well said ash. My sentiments exactly. He didn't put it in for celtic since jan. Would he do the same for us if unsettled. Bit of a prima donna too. . Boooooooooooooooooo

But he is a proven goal scorer and Harry is known to get the best out of the players he works with

Les, Pompey fans there is something I can do for you, as you wake up and taste coffee for the first time each day, I have read all the English paper football headline stories, in some cases watched for a story for a few hours, I knew that Berbatov had signed for Spurs while England was sleeping because of the actual comments/facts from the German 8.30pm (guessing) sports program. I would like to offer Pompey and Les a basic early morning news round up, I commented on this story 6 1/2 hours ago, its around 12.30 UK time. It can be to an email address or to the site.

A proven goalscorer for how long? Not done a lot in the SPL for the last 2 seasons, and even Steve Lovell is a prolific scorer there.

Pompey at Crawley called off

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?
