Bid for James Accepted

Bid for James Accepted

As the search for new players continues the club are now looking to secure the services of Manchester City`s David James. The Official Manchester City website confirms a Pompey bid has been placed, and accepted for the England International Goalkeeper who will now hold talks with the club over personal terms.

The 36-year-old 'keeper is keen on a move to be closer to his other half who currently lives in the South, so a move to Pompey and the South Coast could suit him fine.

I think David James is a better goalkeeper than our young Nick Jordan !

James does get some stick doesn't he, some he more than deserves but IMHO I don't think he has been that bad really the past few years. Everyone makes mistakes, but I still feel he makes less than some, and maybe no more than some other "top" 'keepers. His moments of brilliance far out way his moments of lunacy...

I didnt want James to come but have two questions.....#1 pompeyrug what does IMHO stand for?........#2 unlike Deano last night can he kick out to a player in his own team ?

IMHO i believe is In My Humble Opinion. IMHO what do we need Calamity for, true Ashdown is injured but he would be my first choice. I see him moving further down the pecking order now and that means he's gonna start asking for a move. We'd have been better signing a young up and coming keeper to provide cover.

Well at the end of the day we need another keeper right now, so James is not a bad idea, still think a Carson/Dudek load would have been the answer, then we would stand less chance of *****ing Ashdown off! wasnt keen on Nick Jordan last night, but still he looked real young. has Davis really lost weight?
