Blackpool striker 'linked'

Blackpool striker 'linked'

Quite clearly, as even Stevie Wonder would be able to see, Pompey need another striker.

Having seen our efforts for Martin Paterson seemingly knocked back one too many times by Burnley we have got the message and moved on?

This, according to what sky sports 'understands' this sleepy Sunday, has seen us switch our attentions to Blackpool's Gary Taylor-Fletcher...

They report: 'the 30-year-old's contract expired earlier this summer, but Blackpool activated a clause to extend it for a further 12 months.

'Blackpool have offered Taylor-Fletcher a new deal to secure his long-term future at Bloomfield Road and in a bid to fend off his suitors.

'Championship trio Hull City, Derby and Portsmouth are all thought to be keen on Taylor-Fletcher and they are monitoring his contract situation at Blackpool.'

Well, what can you say to that?

if we can get taylor-fletcher on a free that would be a good signing and maybe we could sign either sharp or tubbs too

Wouldn't mind him coming here, he has a decent enough record, and I think he's the kind of player that would easily slip into the team, but I agree with pompey4ever, we'll still need another striker after this.

Forde looked the keeper we had been missing when signed from Millwall. Admittedly he had a wobble during the season but all things considered could Pompey have asked for more?
