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

    On this day in history...20th September

    A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 20th September.

    More Reliable Than A League 1 Octopus? (20/9/17)

    Time for the special computer that crunches the numbers to determine the final League One positions for the season of 2017/18.

    Roberts opens up

    In fairness when Gary Roberts - obviously now at Wigan - says Kenny Jackett showed 'a lack of respect' towards him in the final weeks of his Pompey career it's hard to disagree.

    Next in (the firing) line

    Of course, Huddersfield loanee Holmes-Dennis is out for the season after suffering ligament damage now - having initially had to sit behind Haunstrup - McCrory has a twisted knee.
