Harry: Petrov Not Worth It

Harry: Petrov Not Worth It


Harry Redknapp has given up on Petrov after offering 5 million.

'As far as I'm aware Celtic have turned down our £5million bid and I think that's it over. I couldn't honestly recommend to the club to pay any more for the boy,' he told the Scottish Sun.'

'I have a high regard for Petrov's talent and I'd have been delighted to have signed him, but enough is enough.'

'I believe we were the only club in for Petrov and I reckon Celtic might find it difficult getting better money than that.'

Still not sure this really will be it for the Petrov deal, maybe for now and we'll go back at the end of the window or possibly in January? You can't question his ability but although a lot will disagree I think that £5m is more than enough for the player

why dont they just stick him on ebay with a reserve price, if we meet it we get him! this all said, as we have not agreed a price with celtic, then we should not have spoken to him, so who says we will agree terms with him?

Adds fuel to the rumour that Strachen hasnt forgiven Harry for taking his precious Scum down, and then come back to mighty Pompey to show a Great escape Should be done.

It's that sort of attitude that don't half p!ss you off, Celtic never wanted to sell in the first place so to say we will find it hard to get better money sounds as if we put him on the transfer market in the first place.

They said they wanted 5 for him. We offer five and they say no. Seems silly to me. Why didn't they just say they wanted 5.5 or 6 etc.

Sod the jocks (slang term for someone from Scotland, eg. Jock Stein) & their games. If they don't want to sell him to us (rather than sell him), let the player rot. He won't do Celtic any favours.

you know what, no-one really knows what has happened between the two clubs £5M was speculation. Between Tony Mcgill (Petrov's agent) and Harry Rednapp they've done nothing but unsettle Petrov, i'm sorry i don't believe a word that comes out of your managers mouth. Storagematt i'm fed up upsetting some of your members but are you really as stupid as you sound.

When player wants to leave most clubs let that player go. They have a price in mind & we probably came close to it, otherwise we wouldn't have kept making a bid. PM67 Go **** urself.

Well lads I have to say now that he appears not to be PETROVED to anyone and may have to remain at Celtic, against his will. This may not prove to be a good thing for the Bhoys and we may have missed out too on a player who can rejuvinate when given a bigger challenge. What appeared to be a WIN/WIN situation may now indeed be the direct opposite. I know Harry is not popular with the Celts but what do you think that most Pompey fans think of Strachan. Enough said, January maybe, but there again by then perhaps nobody, including Celtic will want him.
