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.

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 29th June.

Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

Solving that goalie quandary

I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

Pompey's attacking intent

Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
