Finally a 'link' again!

Finally a 'link' again!

Never have 'those three words' been welcomer for me!

What three words you ask?

These all-important three words, the ones that you can tire of hearing although words that we have not been hearing nearly enough recently...

'Sky sports understands' of course, what else would I have meant!

Movement of players in, Christian Dailly aside, has been slow for the best part of a month, even the 'rumours' had been drier than the Sahara...

Well a 'link' has come in!

Danny Haynes, via sky sports and what they 'understand', is that link with them saying: 'A host of clubs are battling to land Barnsley striker Danny Haynes.

'The 23-year-old only moved to South Yorkshire in January when he arrived from Bristol City. But it already looks as if he could be leaving Oakwell less than 12 months into his career with the Tykes.

'Skysports.com understands a number of Championship clubs are keeping close tabs on him.
It is believed Portsmouth, Burnley, Leicester and Hull City are all monitoring the situation
.'

Whilst the 'understands', 'believes' or 'expects' thoughts from sky sports, The News, BBC etc. can wear a little thin at times not signing any players or having any 'links' to players or any 'rumours' of interest at all make the lack of movement all the more frustrating really.

Will we actually sign Haynes, are we even in for Haynes?

I cannot answer that, although at this point in time I would welcome almost any striker and 'if' the types of club 'said' to be after him really are after him then we could do worse it seems...

    Exciting isn't it, we are in for a player, alongside reportedly at least 3 other clubs. Hopefully their understanding will be spot on for a change.

    What sort of fee are we talking here? Surely not 2.5 like Patterson?

    It shouldn't be that much, but a young player with potential who's still in contract would probably cost a bit.

    True, but if correct that we did actually bid 2.5mil surely Barnsley will up their valuation of the player.

    Based on the 4 clubs supposedly linked with Haynes I would think our offer would probably be 3rd or 4th choice to him so I won't get too excited.

    Maybe blue, but would he be more likely to get a game at Pompey or Leicester?

    From the News: "Steve Cotterill is ‘hopeful’ David Lampitt can bring in more Pompey signings before the week is out. The Blues’ chief executive is currently hard at work closing in on Cotterill’s wish list. It has proven to be a frustrating period for all concerned as the wait for new additions goes on. As it stands, Greg Halford was Pompey’s last permanent recruit – 36 days ago. Since then they have been thwarted in their pursuit of a number of targets, including Peter Whittingham, Ian Evatt and Martin Paterson."

    Start targeting players that are available then !!?? That would help! I know they keep saying not many players out their available but are rivals have managed to sign some descent players since we signed halford .. And not for anything near the 2.5m we Offerd for Patterson..

    i don't understand why we're not looking at some of the freebies out there as there's quite a few who could do a good job for us but haynes would be a good signing if we can get him for a reasonable fee

    Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

    Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

    It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

    Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.

    Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

    Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...
