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?

An unexpected visitor

Pompey's Burgess was clearly at a loose end when the game at Crawley was postponed. That much was initially obviously with the level of desire to be involved in footie later revealed.

Cook - no need for a prolific marksman

Cook has said Pompey's lack of a 25 goal striker - I still think we have one - isn't going to impact on our promotion chances. I can see both sides of Cookie's opinion here to be fair.
