Fans Expected More Signings

We expected more signings! Not my view yours... Asked Are You Happy with the signings So Far in the latest poll most of you, 71% of you in fact voted this way.

Personally I had hoped for more players, so can see why we voted this way, but didn't expect more. I would rather we spent money wisely rather than throw it at anyone, as we have. The players Redknapp has currently signed are quality players who will benefit the squad, most of whom the first team.

To sum up the Polls results
22% of you are happy with the players signed so far
71% of you expected more
and the remaining 7% are less than impressed with the players 'arry has purchased so far.

To be unhappy with the signings is ludicrous, all have experience of being in or around the International set-up so to snap up four Internationals, three of whom are England Internationals, and one former squad member for under 2 million pounds can't be bad.

I do think that a couple more signings will be needed before the midnight deadline on Thursday 31st August (particularly that goalscoring forward) to keep the natives happy 'arry!

Currently being polled is the following First Team To Beat Pompey Before Christmas! (If anyone can...)

gonna be hard attractin good plaers to ya club when they see ya fightin relergation every season but hey ya never know i heard a little rumour than ya new chairman was puttin in a bid for ronaldinho watch this space
geordie boys
We don't much look like we're fighting R E L E G A T I O N at the moment do we... We've not time for Ronaldinho, we've got bigger fish to fry :)
pompeyrug
why would we want the most overrated player in football geordie? Hows your very overated striker doing down the bookies?(owen) Enjoy spending the season below us wont you now...
Play Up Pompey
just heard from a mate at newcastle airport! Martins has arrived at tyneside at 1.30pm 24/8/06
freddyshephard
Dear FreddyShephard, are you sure? My mate just phoned to say he had seen Martins with gaydamak on the Gosport ferry on their way to lunch at the Ship Hanson. Maybe its some one else Freddy?
The Rabbi
our next signing will be appiah, who in turn will tempt muntari to join us... well thats my view
robbie redknapp
today we are being linked with a 5mil (expected) potential bid in Mido... personally better value for money than martins and proven goalscorer at the top level (scored 14 for spurs)... would he link up well with the current team and current strike force ?
pompey pessimist
i'm not a big fan of the player i have to admit, would like muntari or appiah
lmatthews
my mate says he's just seen elvis
russellm
he landed at 2!!!
lmatthews
Mido's good, but we can do better. Muntari would be a great signing and so would Appiah, let's hope Harry and Sasha can work they magic and attract top players to this club (not ronaldinho, since he joined Barca he does no running what so ever)!
Westov
yer he has gone down hill aint he
lmatthews
Elvis was seen at the chip shop
nelson
Geordieboy, Is your site so crap that you want to know what it feels like to mix with real fans, hence why your always on the Pompey's site.
nelson
not only that nelson, LoL their chairman has to come on our site to avoid Mr charisma Roeder.
russellm
71% of the votes. Let's not forget that some of those votes were cast PRIOR to the signing of Sol Campbell. I personally think that the statistic is somewhat distorted. Given what we have and how well we played in our opening game would suggest that we should be at least 50% happy with the current new crop. If you voted again at month end it would be interesting to see what the REAL concensus of opinion is.
pompeygray
Go Mido, Go Mido (thats what the Roma fans have been shouting)
TeddyLyon
Mido managed to keep Defoe out of the Spurs team for most of last season, so I'd be happy for him to come.....
StuartM
good to see the french to55er that is anelka has signed for one of the most boring clubs in the prem. i hope he rots in their reserves!
pompey pessimist
Stuart M sorry Mido did not keep Defoe out of the Spurs line up Robbie Keane did. Jol's little and large show as it is called.
TeddyLyon
Mido would be a good signing. We are desperate. 5 million sounds reasonable too.
POMPEYMEV
there you go pessimist....cheering me up again
russellm
Well if we don't attract some of the big players now, it will just as hard come January. Let's not get carried away with the start. This team of ours has limitations.
storagematt
TBH, the more we sign, the more we want at the end of the day. I would like to a couple more before the TW closes though.
FEn_100
I'll be glad when all this speculation on who we will who we wont sign is all over, its doing my head in! Lets just hope that the players we have can continue to do the business as they did against Blackburn. PUP!
