Pompey snap up the Herminator

Pompey snap up the Herminator

Just two days after Sylvain Distin's free transfer arrival, Pompey have completed the transfer of Hermann Hreidarsson, also on a free.

Following Charlton's relegation - the fourth relegation of 32 year old Hreidarsson's English career, having suffered similar fates with Palace, Wimbledon and Ipswich, a clause in his Charlton contract kicked in and this allowed him to leave on a free - and Pompey pounced, signing the Icelandic international on a 2 year contract.

Harry Redknapp has tried to sign Hreidarsson previously but his attempt was thwarted, but perseverance has paid off for Redknapp and he has finally got his man who will make another good addition to the squad.

I would be lying if i said Hreidarsson was one of the first names i thought of but he has been a decent footballer and will certainly improve the quality of this squad yet further - another good signing...

Certainly provides good cover and he's indicated that he knows that he won't be automatic first choice, so it shows that he's prepared to work hard for the chance to wear the shirt. Good attitude and I believe a good signing (despite the four relegations label).

I like him. He's a good quality player who is very strong and good in the air. Well played Harry!

He is a much better player than his 4 relegations may seem to show, the teams he played for were just not good enough were they... No arrogance meant here - but we are!

Totally with you guys on this one! In my book hes a great purchase. I know a Charlton fan (ulgy bloke), hes a big fan of the herminator. Hes a reliable, consistant player. Well done Arry, keep up the good work!!

Cover for both CB position and for traore if Mali qualify for the African nations - or should he be in the team ahead of Dejan?

1 and a half steps forward (Distin and Hermann) but if the rumours around Matty T are true then that's a further 2 steps back!

It would be a massive step back wouldn't it bluedr, not the kind of message we want to send out... villa are very much a club like us, on the up with money, probably a little more than us to play with tho - i just hope this is nothing more than speculation... we have to keep players like matty, gary o'neil and so on, losing him would undo what has been a good start to the summer...

HH was totally awful last season. With many friends being Charlton fans I enjoyed watching him truly ghastly performances every games because I still didn't like the way he snubbed us before. The only mitigating circumstances are that he was in a shambolic team, 4 relegations means he has been in 4 bad teams yes, but when does that stop to be an excuse after 5 or 6 relegations?! 'Cover' had best be his role. Although he can get the ball down and play a bit, even scamper down the wing which is a good asset in a footballing team.

Northampton (h) - Securing home advantage?

Some could view this as a 'dead rubber!' It isn't as Champions Northampton will want to end on a high and Pompey will want 'an advantage' against Plymouth in the play-offs. Right?

Pompey MotM at Hartlepool

Pompey went into the penultimate game with a slim chance of a top 3 finish. A 2-0 win at Hartlepool saw the Blues do what we needed but wins for others ended those chances.

An emergency loan arrival of a goalie has been ruled out by the Football League but this doesn't mean a free agent cannot be signed by Pompey should a suitable option be found?
