...lets just get it done!
What am I talking about you might ask?
Well, I am talking about Steve Cotterill's recent comments about 'using the loan market' to bring in further players.
To be honest it is always nice to actually own the players but if you use the loan market in the right way then it will not do our squad any harm will it?
We have a 'decent' 1st team squad of about 18-players now I reckon, although I am not convinced that Christian Dailly is going to get another month when his initial 'short-term' contract expires, so that will 'possible' see the numbers drop by one...
Even so, having around 17-players, should that happen, that we own is not bad going by PFC's standards really is it!
As said it would be nice to be owning the players but if they are the right players for the right price then I have no problem with us bringing in a couple, even a few, hell as many as 5 loanees so long as it benefits PFC.
We need to get the squad up to around 20-players, and could do with a genuine out-and-out striker among these arrivals, and that really will make us competitive this season.
I still have this 'sneaky suspicion that Grant Leadbitter will sign before the month is out, so would not rule out one final 'permanent signing', although I have little to back this up of course!
'Word on the street' also has Jimmy Bullard down as someone that has 'been at Fratton' recently and his signing could well happen?
'If' he could stay injury free and 'if' he was on the right money I would have him signed up in a heartbeat, the problem is there are some pretty big ifs attached to this!
Whatever we are doing, building on the moves we have already made in the last 7-10 days to strengthen the squad, it would be nice if we could do a 'little bit more' this week before Cardiff come to town...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
