Fernandes Tests Tomorrow Benji Stays

Fernandes Tests Tomorrow Benji Stays


Fernandes is expected to sign for Portsmouth in a 10 million pound deal. Pompey are satisfied with the players fitness and so is the player.

Fernandes said 'I feel 100 per cent fit now and will have another medical. I cannot wait to sign.'

When I asked someone associated with the club I was instructed, "Wait until tomorrow."

Further tests will be done tomorrow with Pompey needing to meet the 12pm deadline of Thursday night for the player to be available for Pompey`s opener. It is not clear how long the tests would take and Pompey are likely to take their time.

Fernandes will smash Pompey`s transfer record originally held by Benjani. Ten million is an extraordinary amount for a struggling Premiership club to spend but Fernandes comes with a fantastic reputation.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho definitely rates him saying;

'Even though his conversion to central midfield was relatively recent, I do not think that, at 19, Makelele was a better player than Manuel Fernandes,' said Mourinho.

'From my vantage point, this kid looks calm, wise, sensible and, according to Tiago, deserves all the luck, because he is a nice person.

'I follow him very carefully. He is very strong defensively, and suited to pressurising teams in their own half.

'Without being tall, he seems to be sufficiently agile to compete in the air. His passing is accurate, he takes good positions near the opposition's box and has a powerful shot.'

I must remind fans that although the Pompey fitness staff are satisfied, until he passes his medical is completed and it is announced on the official site I don`t think we should get too carried away just yet!

The link bellow is a demonstration of Fernandes`s talent, this was found by a Vital Pompey member;

In other news- Many Vital Pompey members where pleading with Pompey to keep Benjani and… he will be staying.

Redknapp said, 'There is no chance of 'Benji' going anywhere.'

Vital Pre-Match - League 2, 1st October

The 2016-17 season continues with the latest round of matches this weekend, which will see us among those having a match in this upcoming schedule with three-points the aim of course.

Tollitt still has a Pompey chance

Well, according to Cook. He's insisting Tollitt, the former Everton academy player who had returned to Merseyside to join Tranmere on loan, can still return to Pompey.

Pompey win and lose collectively

As such Cook doesn't want the fans to start turning on individual players, which has been the case with Bennett with Smith not exactly viewed as a 'fans' favourite' either.
