*Andy Cole Signs- Two Year Deal*

*Andy Cole Signs- Two Year Deal*

Andy Cole has now completed a move to Pompey.

Cole told the club website; "It's an opportunity for me to play for another two years and I hope to do my best for Portsmouth, score a few goals and get the club into the top 10 which is what they're aiming to do this season.

"The Portsmouth fans are electric and I know Jamo (David James), I know Sol and I've played with David Thompson as well which is always important when you come to a new club because you can fit in straight away.

"I know the club are trying to push forward, buying players and trying to start something new and I want to be a part of that."

Cole with his proven prem pedigree could turn out to be far better than an expensive gamble on an untried player. As has been pointed out before, all three of our fit strikers have played well so there is sure to be healthy competition for places.

i had hoped that he would be a toddy, but a redkapp signing at 35K per week he'll have to be near enough an automatic 1st team striker. Not sure how that will sit with the team but as Tantona said competition for places and when we think about last season how many of us were saying in another team Lua Lua's profligacy might cost him a place

YEAH He'll Dish up Tevez!!!! WHY OH WHY i reckon all the other clubs just wait for us to go in for a player, then while we're stalling over pennies, clubs like BOLTON and VILLA stoop in to seal the deal, And quite honestly i dont blame em

I think it's a decent signing. Don't think it's any coincidence that Man City slumped after February last season without him in the team. He's a very intelligent player in his old age, and still turns on a sixpence.

pedalo this is true, and of course once he puts that shirt on we must get behind him full stop. But mirror boy has a good point even though we have an old ground & no facilities we are supposed to have the top uk scout, and a massive euro network. Villa have just put a 6m bid in for saviola, these clubs are making statements, campbell & maybe fernandes LoL ...whilst we are in the Selfridges league we dont know the way out of pound stretcher....so to speak

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.
