Who needs Anelka when we've got Kanu

As Pompey prepare to come face to face with Bolton, and a former target Nicolas Anelka, his former Arsenal team mate Kanu, now banging in the goals with us is all to well what a threat the Frenchman can be.

With Chelsea beating Fulham on Saturday they moved to the head of the Premiership table for the first time this season, but victory over Bolton and Anelka on Monday in Milan Mandaric's final game with the club would see Pompey return to the top of the table once again, but Kanu is wary of Anelka's threat.

"The Bolton game is a difficult one. They have Anelka who I played with at Arsenal."

"We have to be careful with him. He can run with plenty of pace and shoot and he is very determined."

"He is a really dangerous player but our defence has done very well so far and looks strong."

I would be one of the people who had hoped we would sign Nicolas Anelka, and although I would have still liked him to have arrived even after Kanu's arrival Harry Redknapp has proved that with his signings so far (I'm certain there will be more in January!) that maybe missing out on the sometimes thought to be troublesome Frenchman might not have been a bad thing after all.

Hopefully, between the "There's only one Milan," chants from the vocal home fans, this will also be ringing out around Fratton Park on Monday night.

Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim churu, who needs Anelka when we've got Kanu!

And better still ringing out as Kanu continues to score as Anelka still goes in search of his first Premiership goal for his new club, he did score in their midweek Carling Cup win though.

Another clean sheet and Pompey will win again as WE WILL score at least once as we can hopefully send off Milan will the three points to see us sitting top of the Premiership at the end of his tenure.

I think we'll win Monday. I believe it will be a tough match but the lads will be really up for this one.

Joins us in administration,and going nowhere fast,and leaves us with a multi million pound squad with a bright future,looking down from the top of the Premiership. What a fitting end to the great man's tenure as Chairman. Thanks Milan,as Vinny said in Lock,Stock etc.......... "It's been emotional !!"

lets win, go top again, and stuff bbc1's comments of "normal service resumed" down their throats and ruffle some more feathers up the top!

F*ck the beeb. Let's go top for all thing wonderful that is Pompey. A great way to say goodbye & thank you to MM. Without him heaven only knows where we might have been? Probably playing Mansfield in a league game.

Oh yes, Kanu great start, let's see how the season goes. Anelka is class & once settle & looked after will very well. Too early to judge.
storagematt
lets show anelka he chose wrong team
paultsmouth
yer agree, wonder what reception big sam will get
lmatthews
For sure Anelka is a class act so he's not being judged, only played one, or is it two Prem games, thats nothing. He'll do the business at Bolton just not on Monday. Monday is Milan and Pompey's night, another win and another clean sheet...

My crystal Ball has come up with a 2-1 win.
