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 !

These guys have recently played for England - no amount of put downs can stand in the way of their quality !

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?

No More Quarter Final Replays For Pompey

Should Portsmouth progress through to an FA Cup quarter final from the 2016/17 season onwards, the game will no longer be subject to a replay.

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

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.
