Petrov Deal 'close'

Petrov Deal 'close'


The Stilian Petrov deal has been described as an insider as "close."

Pompey are ready to pay Celtic the 4.5 million they are looking for. Although Celtic have declared this as an acceptable price, they have also made it clear to Pompey that they would have to sign a replacement first. They may not have this option with Petrov pleading with his manager to let him go.

Redknapp said: 'We decided to give it another go with Stilian because I'd really like to get him."

'It is entirely up to Celtic what happens with the bid and I wouldn't tell them what they should do. I would very much like to get a deal done.'

Petrov is thought to have already spoken to Portsmouth about a possible move.

'I have had many offers and I have spoken with a couple of managers,' Petrov told a Bulgarian radio station.

'I won't say who they are but they have made me offers. The Portsmouth offer seems to be the most realistic.

'I really need another challenge and I believe England is the place for me to go.

'I know Celtic are unhappy but I have to leave. Everything is in their hands.'

If you steal Stan after tapping him the way you have, you deserve all the childishness that goes with him. But you expect to sign a 9 million pound guy for 3.5?? Go and grow up.

Well at least we can gather from the amusing Weetims' remarks that Stan is worth signing. Let's hope this saga comes to a close soon with him safely on the payroll.

"PETROV FOR POMPEY" would sound great being sung around Fratton Park. Is that sower grapes weetim67. Once he signs you listern to all the Jocks slag him of saying his crap and not worth the money we have paid for him. Well watch and learn wee boy!!! At least Petrov wants to move his career forward rather than stagnate in the SPL Micky Mouse league. The only reason players sign for Celtic & Rangers is money because it isn't to improve there football skills in that league. Playing for those two must be the easiest job in the world.

I thought all the girls from up there had finished throwing their toys out of their prams over this one. Obviously not. Anyway let's hope this is sorted out very soon & get him settled in.

He has that 'sick look' that many people who have lived in Scotland for some time develop, he clearly needs some time on the South Coast to reinvigorate. It sounds like weetim67 could use some quality time away from Glasgow too.

Champs league v perrenial relegation battle -hmm hard choice. Oh and before you mention mickey mouse league, Portsmouth are exactly the team that fall into that category, along with the Readings, Boltons, Sheff Utds, Villas of this world. Overhyped league ?

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.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.
