The weekends tabloids delivered some 'entertaining' snippets to me, some more so than others, the majority not even good enough to use to wipe my backside - obviously given a choice I prefer not to use the coarseness of newspaper anyway - but a couple caused me genuine interest.
Some papers may have their knockers - quite literally some more than others, but a few bits over the weekend appealed to me for varying reasons 1) Fowler and a proposed move to Rangers and 2) further Pompey interest in Defoe - apparently.
1) Fowler - released by Liverpool at the end of the season is looking like he will move to Rangers on a mere 20 grand a week. We have been linked but have not made an offer, but I maintain that Fowler could do a job for us - but this would only be a short term fix. Pompey could easily match and improve on Rangers' offer but money does not seem to be the motivating factor here, the lure of champions league football and the much easier chance of silverware in Scotland seems to appeal more to the player in the twilight of his career.
2) More interesting Defoe - Music to my ears, hearing Defoe linked is nothing new but the £5million the news of the world suggests was quite simply laughable - and that is putting it politely! Double that amount and maybe some and we would have the amount needed to test Spurs' resolve. It would then come down to the draw of Pompey and maybe more importantly Harry Redknapp - the man who gave Defoe his break at West Ham. I still feel we could see Defoe in a Pompey shirt next season so do not expect this rumour to go away.
There will inevitably be link after link after link after endless link over the summer months - some with more clout others, either way the 'Pompey in the tabloids' series will grow.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
