Harry misses out on Kanoute

Harry misses out on Kanoute

Fredi Kanoute will be staying in Spain for at least the next two years after scoring the only goal in the 1-0 win for Savilla over Getafe in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday. Also off Redknapp's list is Nicolas Anelka who has been strongly linked for a return to Arsenal after the North London side and English football said goodbye Thierry Henry.

A jubilant Kanoute said after the win 'I've got two years left on my contract and I'm not planning on moving from here. I've read a lot of things that aren't true. I've had two great seasons here and now we've won another trophy. My aim is to keep on fighting for Sevilla.'

With the hunt for a striker gathering pace, Redknapp will need to ensure that a goalscorer is brought to the club after a poor scoring record from a lacklustre strike force at Pompey. The combined record of goals from the current crop of forwards brought just eight league goals since November 2006 and he would need to address this if the Club are to emulate or improve on the 2006/07 season. With the defence now shored up more than the Thames Barrier, perhaps £7million is not too much for Preston North End's free scoring David Nugent after all?

Another one bites the dust. Could be our theme tune, let's hope not.

ah well, you can't win them all...but it does seem like we can't win any at the moment. I just hope that 'Arrys got somebody up his sleeve, or next season could not be as good as we hope :(....on a brighter note, we have finaly been linked with lita, with Reading aparantly asking for about 5million, that could be a good deal.

Lita would be a good purchase, I thought Nugent was going to Everton if he went anywhere? but if not I think Nugent would be the better buy even at £7mil.

that should have been make it worth their while, we were too slow again, but i think we will see Kanoute move somewhere before next season. I cant see that Reading will sell Lita to us. I think we are more likely to be looking at that failed polish striker at palermo or something similar.

I'd imagine that the scum fans are accountable for the 28% voting to go to Lords than face another defeat again.

Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

Cushioning the blow

Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.

Swindon striker in 'Pompey's sights'

Michel Smith, who was of course on loan last season, could return? He's still in 'Pompey's sights' by all accounts after Swindon informed him he's 'surplus to requirements' now.
