The Pompey saga surrounding the Sulley Muntari deal dominated most of the Pompey tabloid talk for the club on Wednesday - until this deal was finally completed, it then continued to dominate it after!
We pulled out of the race to sign Luke Young apparently, paving the way for the 'England' international to rejoin his former Charlton boss Alan Curbishley at West Ham - I didn't even know we were ever in the race to sign him?
Alain Perrin got his job with Lyon - good luck to the fella, I am sure he will do a grand job, whilst other speculation suggests that Middlesbrough will only do a deal with Pompey involving Yakubu if we give them Gary O'Neil in return - O'Neil has been a long term target of Boro - but the chances of Harry Redknapp letting him go even to get back his favourite son Yakubu are not likely.
The thing that caught my eye the most though has to be the Mirrors story saying that the Kanu dispute with Pompey - with him wanting a 2-year deal and the club only wanting to give him a year - has alerted Spanish sides Osasuna and Espanyol as well as Dutch club PSV Eindhoven. And 'a source close to Kanu' has told the Mirror.
'The proposal at Fratton Park is for one year - and he wants two. That is a big difference and why he might leave.'
If he is going to leave is it not time he followed through with this threat?
I do like Kanu - I would be lying if I said I didn't - but so long as we get in at least one proven goalscorer, ideal two then if it is best for the club to say thank you but goodbye to him I would be happy with this as I feel Benjani would work alongside a 20 goal a season man better than Kanu would anyway.
Whatever happens let us just hope the tabloids keep us amused!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
