'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Petrov Latest

Portsmouth have had a second improved bid for Petrov rejected, as Celtic chairmen confirms no one has come close to meeting Celtic`s evaluation of the player.

Vital Pompey understands that Fulham is Petrov`s most likely destination although Quinn wants him to stay.

Quinn (Celtic chairmen) told the Sunday Times: 'I'm a bit old-fashioned. I think if you sign a contract you should stick to it.

'We had a long negotiation, and it wasn't a snap judgement by either party.

'Petrov committed himself to four more years at Celtic.

'I find it bizarre he's now taken the position he must leave.

'He's under contract to Celtic and we would only part with him if we had an offer that meets our valuation of the player.

'There's some way to go between the offers we've received and our valuation.

'We think he should buckle down and get on with it.'

how exactly do you understand Fulham is his most likely destination?
blueknight
just from what i've been told and i pay a big interest in odds and the odds of him joining Fulham have decreased alot
lmatthews
Fulham want to replace Maalbranque. So why don't we get him & tell Celtic to sod off?
storagematt
Yes, Malbranque would certainly be a good signing - he's only going to rot in the the Fulham reserves and watch them get relegated otherwise.
Tantona
to storagematt....why do you say tell Celtic to sod off? Petrov is a Celtic player, Celtic don't want to sell him and have not offered him to Portsmouth so how can you tell Celtic to sod off? Portsmouth supposedly offered 8.5 million for a Championship player yet only 3.5 for an international captain, very experienced in Europe and at the prime age of his career. Portsmouth, if they really want a player, have to pay the going rate and it doesn't matter whether you rate the Scottish Premier League or not. They would get him for cheaper than the championship, but at the moment the offer is insulting to both the player and the club, especially when 'Arry himself says that Petrov is the complete midfielder. Trust me, you would be getting a very very good player.
gerryandy
we would be we aren't going to pay over the odds
lmatthews
I'm not talking about paying over the odds, but 3.5 is insulting when Portsmouth were willing to pay 8.5 for a Championship player. I would expect that 5 would do it, but only because he's playing in Scotland. Some of the prices in England at the moment are crazy and are only being paid because the clubs have the money, not because the players are really worth it. I guess it's the old adage of being worth what someone is prepared to pay.
gerryandy
This deal isn't going to happen is it, so 'Arry should turn his attentions elsewhere, making sure we don't miss out on other possible targets
pompeyrug
BBC is now reporting Milan Mandaric as saying the deal for Petrov will hopefully be wrapped up by the weekend? But they also still call Mandaric Portsmouth Chairman! But thinking about it, I guess technically they are right as he is still our non-executive chariman.
pompeyrug
Until the end of august he is still in charge. The signing over has taken place but the take over date isn't until the 30th or 31st of august. I cant remember how many days are in august and I can't be bothered to get up and look at my calendar ha ha ha

I hate to offend anyone but the way storragematt talks of telling Celtic to ***** off gets my back up. Put up or shut up pay the valuation fee or F OFF. Your a tin pot club with a bit of flash cash we do not want to sell to you so in reality it is us that will be telling you to ***** off.
paulmac67
Paulmac67, your lucky that Storagematt only told you to sod off. The rest of the POMPEY fans would of told you to f00k off back over the border and play in your tiny league. The league south of the border is where all the top players want to be, especially the ones that want to improve there football. Hence Petrov wanting to join Pompey. So don't come on here giving it the big I am. Bet you don't even go to watch Celtic or maybe your a RANGERS fan in disguise.

I think all you POMPEY fans should face reality your club is a joke, your nowhere near the size of celtic, your only positive would be the location and therefore league,which allows you to get beaten by some of the worlds top clubs, portsmouth however are in the scale of things complete nobodies,who i imagine are followed only by those in your rather pointless city,where as celtic has a worldwide support about 100 times what you could show, even compare your stadium to ours your inferior in every way. Also what you stupid little portsmouth fans seem to have not taken in consideration is that even if you pay the 7 million for him,petrov only wants to play in the epl and he's so desperate to do so he'll even join your club to get in,however he's not going to want to be faced with a relegation battle or at best some mid-table no hope joke like you could be on your best day,so the second he gets a better offer he'll leave you in a tenth of the time it took him to turn on us and judging by his recent antics if he dosen't get a move to a real club after hes been with you for a short while better he just won't bother. Face reality,your never even going to get into europe nevermind the champions league,obviously the epl is a million times what the spl is however i personally would rather following a winning team who are able to actually get into the champions league sometimes even if we do get beaten its more than you'll ever achieve with your epl of which you are the whipping boys for most teams. Perhaps for the portsmouth fans its more enjoyable to lose most weeks and never win anything and more than likley never will win anything in your life time of supporting your little club because at least at the end of the day you can say you play and usually lose in a good league Also what kind of name of nickname is pompey anyway,that about sums your whole club,laughable and pathetic,pretty much nobody cares about portsmouth and to think your better than us just because you are destroyed by better clubs more regularly just shows how little you have going for you in the first place and ultimatly how delusional and pointless you truly are.

Nelson go back read the comment then answer the way you did(you moron). Why do you insist on slagging our league off we know how bad it is. I'm sick of the arguement but Petrov is not bettering himself moving to your beloved club. Not that i have to justify mysaelf to a pr*ck like you i live in London and probaly go to more Celtic games then you do Portsmouth and get the luxury going to places like Barcelona ,Milan ,Stuttgart,Munich and of course Seville . Can't say you'll be doing that in the near future......................... After reading the article on Chris G's comment's i am sorry to all you other Pompey fans but it is comments like Nelsons that make you write like that i've only just got my computer back from throwing it at the wall.
