Now Pompey play the waiting game

Now Pompey play the waiting game

Harry Redknapp has told sky sports news that a deal to bring David Nugent to Pompey 'is possible'.

Talks are said to have taken place and Redknapp said 'he's a good player, a young player and is an England Under 21 international.

'Whenever I've seen him I've been really impressed with him. He works hard, he scores goals and he's a good lad as well.

'I think he's got a couple of clubs interested, so we'll wait and see what he decides to do.

'I've had a meet with the lad. I was really impressed with him as a boy, he's a great fella.

'Whatever he does I wish him all the best, but I'd like to have him here if possible'.

All we can now do is hope Redknapp has worked his magic and wait and see what happens.

I think it is pretty clear that most of us would like Nugent but he does seem to leave people hanging - Sunderland got fed up with waiting for an answer and reports are suggesting even people at Preston are finding it hard to get through to him?

So hopefully he will not leave us waiting too long - if he does then it is quite clear what his answer is before we even get it.

On the topic of strikers and Pompey, after seeing what storgematt had to say about Svetoslav Todorov I had a little look around and it is being reported that he has signed for Charlton?

Nothing has been officially confirmed but quotes attributed to Todorov suggest it has happened and happened quickly.

Good luck to Todorov - hopefully he can give Ben Thatcher an 'accidental' knock in training though.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I'm fed up with Nugent and his waiting games. I certainly don't want a player who is so desperate and adament to sign for another club, to settle for us. Use your noggle Harry and put your £6/7m elsewhere.

He is holding out for his beloved Everton to sign him thats why I think Sunderland got****ed off with the waiting.

whilst his boyhood club was everton, that can still change! with a bit of harrys magic, and a good run in our first team,i would think that he would come to like us a lot more. Frank lmpards boyhood club was westham, yet he said that he wanted to play for chelski for the rest of his career (and he could get the bg ages at west ham - so that stops that argument!). Letts let harry work his magic, and if he signs, then im sure he will do well for the team. If he doesnt, its because he doesnt want to - and so we wouldnt want him.

how much have you offered? he looks a better player than bent, but bent cost spurs 16.5million - crazy money. the sad thing is that if you sign him and he does well you wont be able to keep him - he'll hanker after a move to a team in the CL.

I said yesterday, we'll struggle to get him. Don't much like his tactics, i think he's playing up to Everton. Even if he did sign, i reckon he will only use us as a shop window. Still if we make on the next deal then who cares and good riddance...

As I could have told Harry at anytime, yes anything is possible, but whether it actually happens is a completely different thing.

dales_dad, you may wish to recall it was only the lack of a goal scorer that stopped us getting Europe football last season

His favourite club is Everton, but they dont want to pay the money so are waiting for preston to get desperate and cash in at a lower rate. We could get him and i have no doubt he will be great but we will need another striker for the Toffee's games. In our business we would give him a decision day deadline he takes it great news, he dont take it we move on

I dont see anything wrong with him wanting a couple of days to think about things. If he met Harry yesterday, then hes only had a day, whats wrong with that?? apparently Sunderland wouldnt meet his asking price, but we would! alot of people slag us off for not meeing these prices for a striker, but when we do, the same people are moaning about, Nugent in this case, not being worth the money...give him another day or so, if he agrees to come to Pompey, great! we get a young, English striker! ok, not proven in the prem, but you cant have everything! If he turns us down, we move on!....guys...the fact hes come to talk to us is good news!!!!

Toddy giving a dig to Thatcher would be nice. However would be pretty ugly and one-sided if it turned to a punch up. The first time my girlfriend saw Toddy she said "Aww, isn't it nice they let one of the ball boys warm up with the players".
