Cotterill swtiching targets

Cotterill swtiching targets

To be honest, with Pompey and Spurs still disputing the £1m fee that we 'owe' Spurs for Asmir Begovic - after his move did not go through - it is not really a surprise that a loan deal for Kyle Naughton has dragged on and is now 'unlikely' to happen, right?

It does not surprise me in the least...

Steve Cotterill, talking to The News, confirmed that he has all but given up on signing the Spurs man, at least for now: 'Kyle is still somebody I would like to have. But I need to be making contingency plans because of what's going on between the clubs.

'There is a political position there that is difficult for Tottenham as well, which I appreciate.

'So we might have to move somewhere else short-term, for a month, and then maybe see what happens in a month's time.'

An alternative right back has been lined up from the sounds of it with a 'phone call' made to another club about an option, with that player wanting 'a little bit of time' to decide: 'I have made one call, the manager is happy about it, the player wants a little bit of time to think about it, which is fair enough because he probably just got pulled out of the blue.

'He will come in for a month initially and if he does well it might be for a bit longer.'

In all honest, for me, as much as a specialist right back would of course be nice I would not have a right back as a priority really, would you?

Whilst we are looking stronger and the supply, and goals, are coming from midfield if we could somehow bring in a creative influence in the middle of the park then this would 'probably' be the priority area I looked at...

    You were rrrrrri, you were rriiiiii- nope still can't say it- about Naughton becoming a victim of the Bego deal although I dint think the player was ever that interested. No I don't think an RB is the main priority; just one of many. For me the top requirement is for a creative midfielder; someone to replace Hughes / Mullins's of this world who aren't likely to pick or send a slide rule pass. Re Dicko- tbh I thought he was starting to look the part.

    I agree, left back is not a problem, Dickinson & a fit agin Hermann is not a problem. Hopefully a right back who can act as a centre half as we need cover there as well, sorry but Sonko is not good enough on form so far.

    Got to agree with russ.....Dicko's getting there, but we do need someone with half a brain (can't bring myself to say creative mid) to actually have the skill and nous to open up a move in midfield and be able to spray the ball about a bit.

    And when I say "spray the ball about a bit" I mean with accuracy and attacking the opposing team...preferably in their half and not side or back passing.
