The merry go round is in full swing at Fratton Park with players signing on for the Pompey roadshow.
Already this week we have had the arrival of Luke Varney and Stephen Henderson - subject to a compensation settlement with Bristol City and today Hermann Hreidarsson has agreed a new one year deal.
Hermann, a really popular player with fans will be thirty seven this month but is seen by manager Steve Cotterill as an important part of his plans for the 2011/12 season probably for the passion he brings to the team and also for the attitude he showed by getting over a serious achiles injury. Hermann is of course the last survivor of the cup winning side - although of course Jamie Ashdown was an unused substitute.*
It seems as though the next signing will be Greg Halford from Wolves for a fee of £800,000 rising to £1m based on appearances etc. Rumour has it that deal will be announced early next week.
With his defence strengthening well underway it is expected that SC will turn his attentions to Burnley`s Northern Ireland striker Martin Patterson with Jason Puncheon among other reported targets.
It seems that quietly the CSI revolution is sweeping across Fratton Park and the squad is now beginning to take some shape before the Chelsea game next week followed by the trip to Charleston, South Carolina. Now that is something we all wanted to happen.
*Glad you all spotted by deliberate mistake!!
