Pompey lead Westcarr chase?

Pompey lead Westcarr chase?

One of the areas we still need something in is attack, with at least one striker needed by Andy Awford this summer.

Yep, we have options but a 'genuine goalscorer' is something that we have lacked but would make a massive difference next season.

Our squad is taking shape, it looked good from what was basically left over anyway but as I have pointed out previously, if you have a striker that can score that can be the difference between being at the top or bottom.

I think it was 2 of the 3 sides that went up automatically from league two last season had a 15-goal or more goalscoring striker - we have goals through our side, if we could add a 15-20-goals striker we could be play-off contenders, at least, I reckon...

Well, if 'reports' starting to surface are correct Craig Westcarr could be on his way to Fratton?

The former Walsall striker, scorer of 17-goals in league one last season, has moved on at the end of his contract. Despite league one, and perhaps even some championship interest, the News says that we have 'stolen a march' on the likes of Port Vale to sign the 29-year-old.

Westcarr can play alongside someone else, behind another striker or in a lone role so he ticks plenty of boxes so maybe he is the answer to our problems?

I am surprised that Matt Tubbs is not someone that we have 'enquired' about - talk about proven goalscorers, he is certainly one of them!

He is meant to/is going to join Wimbledon on loan from Bournemouth.

Like I say I am surprised that, with him available on a season-long loan to end his contract, he is not one to have been looked at?

If we can bring in Westcarr though that would be a good signing for me.

Thoughts?

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.
