We say that Pompey have no strikers, we forget the mighty Zambian international Collins Mbesuma! All we need to do is pay him in pies and cheap Portuguese beer and we are laughing.
How is Mbesuma still with Pompey? I felt sure Mbesuma had been released last summer, but then it turned out he was only sent out on loan to CS Maritimo in Portugal. I then felt sure he would be released this summer - but he still has a year left on his deal - so he is still with and will remain with the club unless he is sold.
Mike Makaab - his agent - has told the goliath that is the Times of Zambia that Mbesuma is coming back, but only until a deal can be arranged elsewhere, if indeed it can?
'Mbesuma has to go back to Portsmouth while we are still looking at other options. So far we haven't yet got anything for him elsewhere.'
Pompey chief exec Peter Storrie had already confirmed, beyond doubt he has no future at the club a few weeks back.
It was thought that Portuguese Superliga side Maritimo could turn the loan into something more permanent but it is understood that Mbesuma - who finished the clubs top goalscorer with 7 goals during the 2006/07 season, not too many behind Kanu then! - is unwilling to stay with them.
How are Zambia doing in their African Nations qualifying? If they are not doing so hot we could be looking at a strike pairing of Svetoslav Todorov and Collins Mbesuma when this comes round.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
