Pompey will very much be undertaking another rebuilding job this summer, although this summer gives us a fantastic opportunity to do this within realistic boundaries.
We could and should be looking to bring in solid championship standard players, with the 'potential' ability to play at a slightly higher level, paying them 'realistic', 'fair' and 'sustainable' championship level wages - no more of the overhyped and overinflated premier league nonsense wage!
Funds for transfers will, again, quite clearly be limited so it is all the more important that we target as many 'decent' and, as much as possible, 'proven' players at this level, or at least players with the ability to do so.
On Friday, much to my surprise, I notice that Craig Mackail-Smith was going to be out of contract with Peterborough this summer.
And what is more is he has made it clear that he is leaving them on a free this summer...
The guy has been steadily, in fact more than steadily, doing this business throughout the leagues and certainly knows where the goal is.
A prolific partnership with Aaron McLean over the years was eventually broken when McLean left to join Hull, although for me Mackail-Smith is the better striker of the pair.
In many ways he is similar to Peter Crouch, although he is much more of a 'natural goalscorer' than Crouchy.
I would 'think' that Steve Cotterill will know enough about the guy from his time in football and would very much hope that he is one of the names that is being looked at as a possible summer recruit?
Yep, I would be more than happy if we could bring the guy to Fratton - and on a free would make it even better...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
