Pompey deny striker interest

Pompey deny striker interest

Harry Redknapp has told The News that reports linking Pompey with Osasuna striker Pierre Webo and Lokomotiv Moscow striker Garry O`Connor are not true.

'It's rubbish. I'm not after either of them.

'It's tough finding strikers - I'm not making too much progress. As I've said before, it's difficult to compete.'

As usual you would not expect Redknapp to admit it even if he were after them. However he did go to Spain to watch a game at the weekend - which has probably brought about the links with Cameroon international Webo - but he is not giving away any information on any players who may have been spotted.

'There were a lot of good players on show. It was a good game to watch, but I don't know if anything will come of it. I just wanted to watch a match.'

One man that continues to be linked with Pompey is Rennes and Nigerian striker John Utaka - but it is firmly believed that Pompey are unlikely to sign any other players taking part in the African Nations - so would this rule out Yakubu for sure then? Nope, he would be the exception to the rule I am sure.

I'm sure Harry will come good for us but we do need at least 2 strikers. Out of those linked that might be interested I'd list Yakubu, Diomansy Kamara, as players who I think would fit in.

Someone is living very much in the past.
12/06/2007 18:28:00
Kamara? I'm not sure I would be keen on getting him back in! He couldnt finish at all for us last time round. Great skill with the ball & obviousley he is very afective in the championship, but people are talking about 4 - 5 mil for him! just goes to show Harrys right, the market for a striker has gone nuts!
12/06/2007 18:36:00
We're not crawling back to our old players. Yakubu and Kamara won't return.
12/06/2007 19:21:00
I agree with CharlieChimes, the prices being banded about for Kamara are comical to say the least. Not only that, I'm not convinced he'd bang in a hatful in the Prem anyway. Yak would cost a few bob, but at least he'd get the goals.....losing him to the African Nations Cup would definitely be a bad point though...

Agreed Tantona JKamara wasnt that prolific for the Baggies either. Having slated O'Conner i thought i had best check him out a bit and it seems he is quite good, so why are we ruling him out. Unless harry has two targets in mind and doesnt want the club deflected
12/06/2007 23:11:00
kamara is not the man we are looking for, yak would be a different ball game! i had been unsure for a long while about having him back but we know what we will get from him - goals - and that is what we need... 'arry would not admit it even if o'connor was a target would he russell? we will get the players eventually, we just need to be patient - as always - and see what sasha and 'arry bring us...

IS Roberto Colautti the man we are looking for? BBC gossip are reporting HR's interest in this guy - sounds good on an initial search of the net.
13/06/2007 08:15:00
some good goals on Youtube - looks quick and sharp
13/06/2007 08:38:00
i will have to look him up more mate but an argentine born player - by birth - cant be too shabby? israeli international now isn't he and plays for the yaks old team maccabi... at 25 he may be a bit too young for 'arry tho :)

No retirement plans

Doyle might have turned 35 recently, which in reality means he's in the final throws of his playing career, but he's not ready to call it a day with Pompey (or otherwise) anytime soon.

On this day in history...20th October

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 20th October.

Linganzi presence needed

I've liked Rose since he signed in the summer but perhaps the former Oxford midfielder lacks the physicality Pompey sometimes need, which is why Linganzi has come in of late.

Pompey 'sent a message' at Plymouth

I'm still not completely sure if we should see Plymouth as 'two-points dropped?' Although I'm learning towards it being a result Pompey will be happier with than our hosts.
