'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cook/Ljungberg no goes for Pompey

Harry Redknapp has told The News that moves for Arsenal's Freddie Ljungberg and QPR's Lee Cook are not in his mind.

'I've heard the rumours about Lee Cook, but I don't know where they've come from.

'He's not someone I've looked at.

'Freddie Ljungberg's a good player, but I'm looking for strikers, really.'

As you would expect Redknapp is not going to come out and say 'yes I am going for these players,' but what Redknapp tells us and what really happens are not always one in the same, so moves for one or both - although being ruled out - would not come as a surprise to me at all.

Ljungberg might have lost his way recently but he is still a fine footballer and a footballer I would happily have at Pompey, although maybe these feelings are more feelings I had when there were links previously?

From what I have been told about Cook he too sounds a fine talent and could be an ideal player to carve out opportunities for our strikers - but we need some that will take chances first - so rightly our attentions need to be turned fully towards these first. And we will get one or more strikers sooner or later.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Shame about Freddie the Fag. Even if he gave you 20-25 games he would have been great. Look what Steve Stone did for us.
storagematt
Very true storagematt. We all know he has deteriorated over the passed couple of seasons, but still would be a great asset to have. He would again bring a good amout of "winning" experiance!
CharlieChimes
Freddie would be a good signing and would allow Gary O'niell to play in his proper position. Cook is more of a long term punt, but i did see him play last year and he is quick and can cross a ball.
Owenspompey
quick and can cross? That'll do for me!
paultsmouth
freddie is past it...
Goofle
Don't need any more midfielders.
Lysimachus
So if Frederick is on the right wing and GON is in the centre who do you leave out? Pedro? Munta? It's a no go as he doesn't want to warm the bench although Cook might not mind too much.
Et_tu_Pompeii
yep Et_tu_Pompeii, cook would not be in such a hurry for an assured starting place, freddie the fag - as storagematt so eloquently puts it - will no way want to sit on the bench here... muntari and mendes are certain midfield starters and will make some pairing wont they?
pompeyrug
Should be amazing and together with our defence we will be difficult to beat. Now, if only we could score . . .
Et_tu_Pompeii
no kidding! I gotta say, our Defence is lookin pretty damn amazing! theirs not many i would say look better in the prem!
CharlieChimes
I think we have enough mid fielders but old fag freddy would be good for a season and cook is a future star. if i had to choose Cook is got to be worth the money.
russellm
i am pretty excitted by the squad we are assembling - bring in some fire power and we are looking mighty strong to build on last seasons 9th place, most likely improve on it... agreed russell, cook could be a sound long term investment...
pompeyrug
now will we invest in the firepower, i am fairl confident pompeyrug, that if we get another african Kanu will be on his way purely because of the ACoN issue
russellm
even if we do not get another african i think most of us are fairly confident kanu will be on his way - but on his way with thanks from me that is for sure, altho i will still be a little put out by some of his antics...
