Deadline Day - Two in, four out

Well another deadline day has passed and eventually the details of the deals struck by Pompey are in.


Liam Lawrence - Stoke City (£500,000)
Dave Kitson - Stoke City (£500,000)


Marc Wilson - Stoke City (£4,500,000)
Tommy Smith - QPR Subject to league approval (£1,500,000)
James Hurst - West Brom (Free transfer)
Marlon Pack - Cheltenham (Season long loan)

Remember the club have to raise the funds to pay their creditors the first instalment of the CVA payment as they come out of administration in the next few weeks which is why no money has been splashed out.

The window however opens again on 8th September when the club can loan in players. It closes again on 23 November. An existing loan deal can be made permanent at any time outside the transfer window. Free agents can also be signed during that time - Hermann,Kanu for example.

Premier League clubs have to name their twenty five man squads tomorrow, after that there will be a scramble to borrow those left out.

they leaves us with a bench of what 2.... WOO :/, i know we needed money but letting go of 2 of our best players isn't the way to do it. that said at least we now have a proper right winger/ mid and a decent striker up front... still need that right back though lol

I can live with this - the biggest hurt will be Smith in my opinion, but yeah, this is okay.

smith hasn't been great tbh, another trier but not alot of quality, ciftci has looked much better in the position sc has played them both. altho i do agree with the comments about getting bodies in to fill the bench, and pack looked half decent, even with no experience.

I'm sorry to see Wilson leave, he's an exciting future prospect, but at the current time the money is needed. I do hope that Kitson and Lawrence both boost our team and pull on the shirt with pride - I have some doubts, but we can only see what happens. I'm sure there are still some free transfers and loans due to come in yet.

So if we get someone in on loan next week, we can then make that loan signing a permanent one after the 23rd of November?

If that is the case then we should have a new owner by then and should be able to make some loan signings permanent.

If we have raised 5M from those deals and can get three good loans in next week, including a RB, then we can move up the table having balanced the books.

Answering moley2's question the answer in NO. Only existing loans can be made permanent - existing means before the window slammed shut.

Moley2 sadly the owner - whomever that may be- can't be installed until the 15th Sept but given Chan has lodged a 15m bond with the FL that 15th date may not be such an issue. On the whole the day hasn't turned put so bad although I would have preferred to lose Nuge rather than Smith due to the salary issue. Could been a whole lot worse, no more excuses Cotterille!

Liam Lawrence = yes! Dave Kitson = yes! AND money for Wilson, sounds like a good deal.

The James Hurst seems silly to me, why let someone go for nothing who is offered a two year contract by a PL team? Is this another player disgruntled by the manager?

hurst was always a player that i had 'high hopes' for, altho i guess he would have taken up a '1st team spot' so like others, such as mahoto etc. was shipped out...clearly cotterill is trying to make space for 'his' own loan signings, much like a former manager here methinks that he wants it to be 'his team' altho making it up of loanees is hardly the way to go, especially if you are booting out the kids contracted to us that would 'probably' be the ones stepping in to pick up the peices next season when the loanees go back!
that said hurst 'seems' to have abit of an attitude about him, remember the other season when he got suspended for using a social network site to say that he hoped arsenal beat us...

yeh thats right, you also have to remember he jumped WBA's sinking ship to join our established PL team..ironically. I do not like his attitude, same as culiver...these kids grow up where they are the best kid in the school /village, get a deal somewhere, and get more Kudos and praise, and they end up believing their own press, sadly unlike the real stars who make it such as the rooney's etc, and dare i say it Wilson to some degree, who have the benefit of a sesible manager to calm them down these young bucks still beleive they are Ronaldo's

What about Nugents deal with Blackpool? Didnt fall through? xD Im quite happy. I think he and Kitson might do well. And Utaka can take Smiths place then. And Lawrence takes Wilson. And Mullins still stuck at RB.

Just one thing. Liam Lawrence. Is anyone else a bit unsure on this. It's now been two days since he signed, and he's not on the OS as in the 1st team squad, there's been no photo of him with the usual shirt in hand, and more importantly not one quote from him. Has he signed? Very peculiar.
