News after Snooze- 16/8/06

News after snooze- is a new feature on Vital Pompey. It should be posted before you travel into work, enabling you enough time to read it.

Some people will buy their favourite paper and others will buy a couple in hope that at least one has a bit of Pompey news in it. This article will basically recommend what paper you should buy, as far as Pompey news goes anyway.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Martin O`Neil will use Angel to get Petrov (former Pompey target) to join Aston Villa.

The paper I would suggest buying is The Times, it has an article saying that Manuel Fernandes will complete his 8.5 million pound move to Portsmouth today.

If you see any other Pompey News in the paper today email me at and I will update the story.

I hear that Distin may go to Middlesbrough as their bid has been accepted by City - so that may mean either Harry will also bid or go after Huth, now that Boro don't want him. I'd be happy with either....
If we did what formation do you think harry will play next season 5 at the back with Johnson and Taylor as wing backs 3 in midfield and 2 up front?
away from home maybe but not at home, we may go back for distin
I think he'll experiment with that type of formation - he seems to like Paramot as a sweeper on occassions allowing Taylor and now Johnson to attack more. He may not start games with this formation as he seems to love 4-4-2. By the way, the latest rumour being Jan Vanegoor of Hesselink with an asking tag of a mere 7 million - Apart from having the longest surname in world football he scored some great goals on PSV's Champions League run and I rate this guy - I'd be more than happy with him though the fans will definitely have trouble singing a song for him - There's only one Venegoor of Hesselink !
Your name is too hard to sing do dar do dar lol
What would they put on the back of his shirt?
Venegoor - sounds like Vinegar doesn't it !
Vennegoor is ok but hardly prolific. he has played for PSV for at least five years and may suit the Dutch league but he must be nearly 30 and I would think seven million is far too much for him. PSV are a clever club when it comes to transfers. they buy cheap from provincial dutch clubs and sell big across europe. witness van nistelrooy who they made about 10m on in about two years. They have also done the same with Ronaldo, Eidur Gudjohnsen. If you want an example of them selling cheap then look no further than Wilfred Boomer the Aston Villa defender. he cost Villa 3.5m and on last seasons performances looks worth about a tenth of that. In my estimation we would be far better off paying Ajax 12m for Huntelaar who at 21 will have a better sell on value than Vennegoor who will drift back to a provincial dutch club for nothing.
The Rabbi
Vinegar, Vinegar, Vinegar.. Vinegar... vin-e-gar lol
huntelaar is awesome! At pompey night we spoke about Nugent with the value of english players increasing!
Just for info purposes - Vinegar is aged 27 years 9 months old. He has scored 72 goals in 157 games over the last 5 years for PSV. I agree that a 21 year can be better - but expect to pay over 10 million for them, even Nugent will cost close to that I think! Seven million is in our league - and remember we are competing against Newcastle right now who have as big a striker shortage as we have.
Les do you think Nugent will come, Preston keep saying they do not need to sell him and other clubs seemed to have backed off.
it's all about player power mate, if nugent wants to come to us and we want him, he'll sign
Nugent will cost similar to Andy Johnson as he's younger.....
6 mill i recon
plus a minimum sell on guarantee, but i just cant see it happening or we would have offered a 6-7 mill take it or leave to Preston instaed of trailing the auto stradas from Udinese to Milan to Empoli of italy waving around 10 mill. Gents the traffic on the M1 & M62 is bad but come on :-)
lololol who knows, i don't think nugent is top of the list but i recon he is on it
les did you follow that Mendes link i finally posted last night ?
no mate where abouts?
no mate, where is it?
Someone else i think may be stuartm also picked it up anyway here it is.... ..and i've just found our highest finish place prediction yet, this one from square football who were the most accurate of predictors last season (using and they have us as finishing 6th just above Villa. as i said i'll be happy with 10th, but nice to dream
they predictided us bottom last year, they got that wrong lol
hey Les sky sports have carried a story that vargas's agent has said he will take the player to another club if we dont sort out his "un specified problems"
yer saw it, where going after barry i've heard
I hope we get Fernandes. He looks like a quality player and will add the flair we need to push up the table.
seen a report that says HR has killed the Vargas bid
Steve C
i think vargas's club did that
to all you at pompey come on this seson you will stay up i h8 saints love pompey surport doncaster rovers come on pompey
no.1 rover
Les, im clicking the forum link then the vita pompey forum but i still cant get on to the vital pompey forum, is there some sort of initiation ceremony you have to complete.
oh and stephen appiah was apparently excellent last night for Ghana, and would be cheaper than martins
email me your password please mate,, cheers rover, appiah plays in midfield don't he?
Thanks mate, yes he does but he seems to be scoring goals from every where these days and has played as a forward..... or am i just desperate. Apparently the other published interest in Vargas comes from the sicilian bankrupt club Catania.
yer saw that rumour
Ferndandes about to sign....stand by for blast off. TEN - NINE - EIGHT...
7, 6, 5, 4... Harry do we have a problem?????????
3, 2, 1 ,..1, ...1and a bit , 1 and a bit more.........
