Harry Redknapp has told The News that he would like to move for Craig Bellamy - this link seems to have crept up from nowhere - and newly selected French international Jimmy Briand but he cannot compete with others for their signatures?
'Jimmy Briand is very good - he's just been called up for France.
'But again, I won't get him. Rennes don't want to sell him - and there are bigger fish than us trying.
'You look at France, and Nicolas Anelka, who I tried to get here last summer, is centre-forward for his country again now.
'What chance have we got of getting him? With Thierry Henry, he's the best French centre-forward.
'Craig Bellamy would do for us. But West Ham want him and would double his wages to £100,000-a-week. How do you compete with that?
'We've got no chance of getting Bellamy.'
Briand is valued at £8million with Bellamy around the same amount, maybe more? Bellamy is a good footballer, but he is not really a player I would want at Pompey myself.
Maybe I am naïve in thinking this but believe it or not 'arry not every player is motivated by money - yep a lot are, but not all - so even though others may offer them more money to play for them it does not mean they will!
If we have the money why do we not test the resolve of the clubs these players play for if we want them - then see where it gets us before we write them off, unless of course Redknapp has already tried and found out?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
