New striker twist? I think not!

New striker twist? I think not!

The News is reporting today that Harry Redknapp's search for new strikers might take 'a new twist' after what he said.

'I have got plenty of defenders now. I'm happy there; we've got lots of variation. There won't be anyone else.

'My priority is now finding strikers and wide players.

'We need strikers. I'm still looking all over the place for them but where are they?

'Ideally we'll get two strikers in. If not, I definitely want one good 'un'.

My thinking is our search for new strikers has not taken any new twist whatsoever?

It was always my belief that we were after one top class striker, so this hasn't changed - maybe the fact that Redknapp will have to limit it to 'just the one' as opposed to the two strikers he wanted might have to be the case, but I still see no reason why we could not get two if we really went for it.

I hate going against Redknapp or having a go at him as I love the fella to bits but I tend to disagree that they are not out there!

Yep, we do not want to pay too much but it is a common acceptance that you have to pay a price to get in this quality, this seems to be where we are falling flat on our face.

So it is not so much that we cannot get them, it is more that we are unwilling to get them.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

your a hard man to please aren't you mate :) 'arry the strikers are out there if you really want them - but to get them you have to pay the price, until we do we will never get them... time to cut lose and spend some of this sasha's money, even if it means paying a tiny bit more that we would ideally like - unless of course sasha is deciding that 'arry cannot spend the money he would like...

I think Harry will start with Jamo in goal. 3 central defenders, 2 wing backs & 5 in midfield. Oh of course, silly me & 5 on the bench.

I agree with TPB especially when he posts comments in Italics ( does this mean a preference for Pazzini i wonder). Storagematt you cant have 5 it has to be 3 on the bench cos we have to make space for slimey silkman and willey the crim

Rigters of Holland is the lastest one, but being 21, I'll bet he is not on the list

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.

Debut delight...kind of!

It wasn't a result, and in many ways a performance, for Sheff United loanee Freeman to remember too fondly as he didn't really have a great game against Orient? Then again who did!

On this day in history...10th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 10th February.

Tubbs has left the building

Tubbs has finally left Pompey; perhaps his destination is something of a surprise then again there had been some 'rumours' recently of an Eastleigh interest.
