Deadline Day - Two in, four out

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.
31/08/2010 19:35:00
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.
31/08/2010 19:43:00
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?
31/08/2010 19:51:00
If that is the case then we should have a new owner by then and should be able to make some loan signings permanent.
31/08/2010 19:52:00
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.
31/08/2010 19:53:00
Answering moley2's question the answer in NO. Only existing loans can be made permanent - existing means before the window slammed shut.
31/08/2010 19:56:00
Oh ok, like Sonko, lol!

Worthy of a new deal?

So, Danny Rose, as we know, isn't going to play again this season. As things stand this would mean he'll not pull on a Pompey shirt again as his contract expires in the summer.

Sickening Rotherham winner

Losing on Saturday was bad enough, the fact this was an added time winner more so. The cherry on the cake was the fact Rotherham's goal came from ex-Pompey full back Joe Mattock.
