Established striker under 25, please

Established striker under 25, please

Harry Redknapp will sign an established striker aged under 25 for Pompey! Not my view, yours - although these findings from the poll are thoughts I share - in both hope and expectation.

The majority that voted are of the opinion that Redknapp is most likely to 'break the bank' to sign an established striker aged under 25 for Pompey. With many of the names being linked with Pompey around the age of 24 or 25 there is every chance of this - but many people also feel that Redknapp likes his 'old guard' a lot so we might not get this.

The least likely arrival - with Redknapp breaking the bank - would be a promising striker aged under 20. In many ways this is fair enough, even for Redknapp - who is well known for not turning to young talent that often, particularly at a cost.

How you voted - established striker aged under 25 48%, experienced striker aged under 29 25%, veteran striker aged 30+ 14%, promising striker aged under 20 13%

Current Poll - There is no escaping the great Pompey striking debate and the theme yet again continues - as does our search - with your opinion sought on your preferred arrival.

Now three of the men most heavily linked with the club are being looked at in Sachas_Brother's poll - 'Next Pompey Striker, who would be the preferred choice?' Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

is 'arry saying 3 strikers please or 'read between the lines' referee - probably graham poll... Midge, bent is edging closer to spurs so if you are right mate defoe could be edging ever closer to pompey?

its got to be said you dont want a veteran to end his career with you, although the experience would be great, pace from a younger player would be better i totally agree with the poll results
23/06/2007 14:19:00
Would settle for any of them as long as it is one of them.
23/06/2007 15:20:00
Anyone at the mo. That stupid blue frog still available?
23/06/2007 18:28:00
seems Harry thinks Kanoute is " the second highest goal scorer in spain, a real hand full but only worth 3 million ish and not the additional 4 million sevilla are asking for", personally i think that is a bluff, or we will be re hiring Kanu AAARRRRGGGGHHH
24/06/2007 10:39:00
the same Kanu who still hasnt gone

got a few new rumours for all of you (btw this is pompey pessimist in a new alias :D ..... RUGSTER .... nice one on claiming the site for yourself, doin a great job btw :)). first rumour is that we about to sign a SCUMMER .... yes thats right .... full back Martin Cranie. Hes 20 yrs old and the value will be set by a tribunal! The source (web) i got this from says its from The People (how reputable is this source!?) second rumour (one we have heard) is about mr nugent. looks like we were on, then off, but it looks like we are gunning in for him again. we have APPARENTLY given nugent 10k more a week in a 2mil a year deal to outdeal sunderland and that we have matched the 6 mil price tag. (again the web source states this is from The People) ...... what do we think? substance or baloney?
24/06/2007 14:12:00
why the name change pessimist? yep the Nugent thing is floating around again its a three way thing the macams, the tacams and us. My mate the QPR martyr reckons they put an offer in for the full back as part of a three way tie up with Lee Cook but it was turned down becase Cranie said he wanted to stay local. I think its fair to say we have all been looking at strikers so it could be a goer. Plenty of time yet
24/06/2007 19:04:00
hi rusty! :D well..... i couldnt log in to this part of the website with the pessimist alias, and i got bored just READING what people had to say... its about a year ago i signed up so thought id put my input back into it! "the macams the tacams and us" thats such a LOL phrase! i hear boro are gonna go after javier saviola .... and the difference between us and them is ...?! hes on a free... we could at least give him a contract offer, see what he thinks?! or is that dumb?!
24/06/2007 20:15:00
I think I uggested saviola a while back :)...he would be a class signing, and would fit out striker problem neatly. Lita is also being kicked around (the mirror), for about 5 million, which you cant complain about. I dont think we will go for nugent - at 10million, he is too expensive! Martin Craine I think would be more likely, with him wanting to link up with tony adams - who has decided to stay on :).
