Bond eyeing up Pompey trio

Bond eyeing up Pompey trio

Former Pompey coach Kevin Bond left a couple of times, only to return and he is looking to return to Fratton once again - but only to take some players on loan this time.

The Bournemouth gaffer is looking to borrow Canadian keeper Asmir Begovic, who is constantly being talked up by Harry Redknapp and others, defender Jason Pearce, who was down as one of the 'players to watch out for' last season - but this did not pan out as the papers thought and new signing Jean Francois Christophe.

Christophe only signed for Pompey a couple of weeks ago after impressing during pre season, but he was always signed with the view to sending him out on loan. Pearce has already been playing for the cherries during pre season and actually accidentally injured his own Pompey teammate John Utaka in our 4-1 win at Dean Court.

Bond is believed to be interested in completing these loan moves by the weekend so they can face Forest.

Another Pompey player that is being touted with a loan move to Bournemouth is Marc Wilson. He signed a new contract this summer, but the young midfielder is not going to play this season so returning to Bournemouth again for a spell on loan would do him good.

We have such a big squad now don't we, with quality seemingly right the way through it, including a fair bit of young talent that needs nurturing - which will happen at places like Bournemouth.

At least it's local & they can learn a bit there.

Quite right Matt, it has to be a better bet than just playing in the reserves week in week out, and Bond is an old boy of sorts.

two concerns for me about Christophe, 1, is that Bond is sort of viewing it almost as a lead up to a permanent transfer. 2, Also i think they would do better playing in the coke heads league. What is the point of returning players who are not at a skill level or match sharp for something at or near premiership status, why not consider one of our other old boys such as Gregory at QPR or another "footballing" team in the cola league.

Good point Russ, Gregory could probably use some loan options, whenever i see the reserves your realise what a poor standard of football that league is, and the players need more competative standard of football, maybe one of the smaller squads like Colchester or Ipswich could use them, mind you Magilton is at Ipswich isnt he, maybe Norwich then.

tbh russ altho i have previously said christophe is 'one for the future' i cannot really see him having a long term future with pompey, 2 yrs will soon come and go, so if he isnt playing next season - not this, the one after - he wont want to extend his contract will he? i reckon pearce is destined for a permanent move to the cherries... as for begovic, jamo is going to be number 1 for the foreseeable future isnt he, so any kind of football is good for him really isnt it - the draw back of him playing football in the championship would be he comes back, doesnt play then will be wanting to leave sooner as he might get a taste for it...

You have to wonder sometimes when young players sign for a top club as to how much first team experience they are likely to get. It sounds wonderful when you sign for Man United only to find out you have no hope at all in actually playing for them, and then later find out that Crewe or Chester require your services, and then off you go to oblivion.

sorry to change the topic fellas, but could i just re-direct you here momentarily for something that might have been otherwise missed... nothing major, but just thought it might be nice to give a new arrivial a warm welcome.

begovic has looked alright when i have seen him but is very highly thought of here. ive not seen pearce tbh, so cannot really say. christophe looked very impressive in the few pre season games he played when on trial to get himself a contract, so i would think he should do very will with you. you have had wilson before havent you, so you should know better than me - but he signed a new contract when it was feared he might leave, so again is highly rated.

If they ain't gonna play, take 'em away.....it's gotta be better and more beneficial than reserve team footie.

On this day in history...26th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 26th June.

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.
