Harewood looking Pompey bound?

Harewood looking Pompey bound?

After what Harry Redknapp said in The News is looks as though Marlon Harewood could be one of Pompey's main striking targets after all.

'I've been keeping an eye on Marlon. I like him - he's strong, quick and powerful.

'He's a real handful on his day and most of all, can definitely get you goals in the Premier League. If he could get 15 goals, he'd be a snip.'

Harewood is a good footballer, but with respect to him - and should he become a Pompey player I will obviously back him - he is not really the name we have been hoping for, or even expecting all summer is he?

We seem to be 'linked' with striker after striker but appear to be missing out due to our reluctance to pay big money. Fair enough, you do not pay over the odds but you have to pay what you have to pay in order to get a player capable of scoring goals!

The £5million that is being spoken about for Harewood is - if I am honest - not that good a value for money is it? I am not sure what he would bring us that Benjani doesn't already - maybe a few more goals?

But if he did arrive so long as another striker followed - as they would have to if we want a lot of goals - then things would be looking brighter.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Obscene value. Even if we got him for £2m it would still be too high & you would consider him as a bench warmer. Fat lot of good if we have a good defence & midfield & a goal shy front line. Very scary stuff.

I disagree, he'd be worth a shot at £2m although £5m is too high. This one doesn't have me anywhere near as anxious as the previous Bramble rumours!

I Tantonas right, at £2m he would be a good purchase at even 10 goals a season, hes not "the answer" but wouldnt mind!

Where does this two million come from? I've not heard a figure below FIVE which is seriously obscene. I really do not want us to buy Harewood, he is not a sophisticated footballer and when push comes to shove you need a footballer out there. If he could do naff all but score 25 goals you would have to think, who cares if he can't play football? But if he's only gonna get 10-12 a season, then what's he gonna do the rest of the time on the pitch. the midfield will be seriously pi**ed off with an industrial (not industrious) player in front of them. I'm sorry but no way for Marlon. I am prepared to eat my hat, of course.

just ot good enough..Harry to mythinking can pick good goalies-hislop,Ashdown james, great backs, cant think of a real duffer, excelllent midfielders....but forwards hmm toddy did well,,as have yak but look at the rest burton..Roberts..kamara..Fuller..Benjani-i know he works hard ..but does he hit the target?? Redknapp just does ot seem to have his genius radar in this area. eve his targets that he would love to have here have their critics at their own clubs Defoe at spurs. Viduka only turned up at boro when it was a full moon according to smoggies. well what would I do? I'd take a risk on a young lower league geezer. Billy sharp he will be a darren bent in a few years costing megga bucks and an experianced pro with him like benjani

If Harewood's worth £5million so am I,
If Harewood's worth £5million so am I,
if Harewood's worth £5million,
Harewood's worth £5million,
If Harewood's worth £5million so am I.

I can hear the chants now, especially at Upton Park - "What a waste of money, what a waste of money." Come on Harry, wise up for crying out loud! Stop fart arsing aobut, splash the dosh and get a PROPER goalscorer - or face being a flop next season because we cannot score. Don't you EVER check the stats of your players??? Just eight goals from the entire forward line since November, that's disgusting, its relegation fodder and its high time you got this sorted!!
