'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hoping for a quiet day

There was a time, not too long ago, when transfer deadline day was a hive of activity at Fratton.

'Back in the day' you were left with a feeling of how many, and who, would come through the gates as a transfer window drew to a close - in more recent years though it had become more of a case of 'please let it pass without too much damage'...

That was then, and subsequently at a price of course, this is now.

In fairness, more recent deadline days have produced some positive moments but I know, when all is said and done, I would sooner the moves being made on days like today were moves with Portsmouth football clubs best intentions, and benefits, in mind.

I would be more than happy for a 'quiet day' at Fratton today though!

Almost certainly there will be no one coming to the club, the transfer business should have been concluded by now and if we pull off anything I would be surprised - the more likely, even if still unlikely, would be a dip into the loan market when this reopens in the coming weeks...

There is still some talent at Fratton these days, granted not the talent there once was that many a club would have wanted to plunder, but some that will be attracting admiring glances from other clubs higher up the footballing pyramid.

Jed Wallace and Sonny Bradley 'could' be subject to late moves today.

You would hope having made it this far into the transfer window that the burning embers of it can flicker and fade away with all believing that spending the final months of this season, at least, with Pompey would be the best way forward...

Would quite happily see Jed Wallace go. I small amount of attention the fans have given him has gone straight to his head. Doesn't fight for the team or the badge.

I agree Brucey, with only one thing you say and that was he did get a bit too big for his boots, however he is a great player and without the distraction of will he won't he I think he still has a lot to offer Pompey. I hope he stays but if he goes for a substantial fee then it is money Pompey can do with. I would be more concerned in losing Sonny Bradley.
