Pompey have confirmed the arrival of Sylvain Distin from Man City, which has left us looking very strong in a central defensive area. We are going to add even more to this area with Titus Bramble set to follow him through the gates of Fratton by the end of the week - would his signing really be so bad?
I am not a fan of Bramble's by any means, just hearing the name 'Titus Bramble' makes me shudder but he is a player of undoubted potential - or so they have been telling us for the last 5 years or so, so maybe we should not be so quick to scoff at this highly probable move.
In all fairness to Bramble he has never really played alongside defenders with that much quality really has he? The Newcastle defence has been rocky at best for a good few years now and although Bramble has been the culprit more than once, training, let along playing alongside players the likes of Sol Campbell, Linvoy Primus and Sylvain Distin not to mention working with Harry Redknapp and one of this countries greatest ever central defenders in Tony Adams could maybe yet see the 'quality central defender' we have been told about for years still shine through?
Our central defensive area is starting to look rock solid now and the options of Bramble and Distin as cover for, what I feel is still the best pairing we have in Campbell and Primus feels me with far greater optimism than it ever did Andy O'Brien, Noe Pamarot, Dejan Stefanovic and Djimi Traore having to come in.
If we can bring in a striker, maybe two who will get us 20 goals a season we will be laughing wont we. I still have this sneaky feeling we will be hearing a lot more about Jermain Defoe and Portsmouth Football Club over the summer.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
