Matty Taylor linked to Spurs, again

Matty Taylor linked to Spurs, again

It gets tiresome hearing the same things repeatedly I know, but today the Sun are claiming fresh reports of Spurs interest and a possible bid for Matty Taylor - with him again their 'number one target for their problem position on the left'.

This has been a long running theme for the Spurs supporting Pompey star, which is often used as a reason for him to go to them, so the 'fresh reports' are nothing new are they.

It is said that Spurs have offered £4m, but Pompey are looking for double that, which looks to have frightened them away - for now.

Although it is also claimed that cash and a 'fringe player' could be offered in exchange. I am not suggesting he is a 'fringe player' of course but we could always take Jermain Defoe in exchange, which sounds like a fair trade!

We get tired of saying it, well I know I do, but why would we want to sell Taylor? He is one of our British - which are mainly English - core of players, something that is vital for Pompey in order to retain our identity, with it also vital we keep him as he is one of our top players.

My thinking as always is, unless players such at Taylor want to leave, then we should not even be entertaining the thought of letting them do so - and nor will we.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

No chance, Matty will be playing for us all this season, is this the Spurs we are a Sleeping giant fans time again. Defoe and Huddlestone would be a decent swop, and you get the most consistent left wing back in the division. Think of those spectacular long range goals.

Spuds is a big club indeed, in non-league standards anyway. Premiership? Nah.

tbh on paper, but nothing is won on this, spurs have a really good chance of cracking the top 4 this season so it would be a good move for him in that respect, but lets see what this season does before we think spurs are streets ahead of pompey - which they are not are they! they have had years head start on us and still only finished a few points ahead of us last season didnt they...

Maybe a few years ago, he may have gone to spurs, but not now. he is settled, one of the main cogs in a new set up, and in a team that will give Spurs a decent run for the money. So why would he want to go to a team, that has been full of maybe's for 30 years, but achieved nothing.

Not many other Left Wing backs would have 14% of fans saying he will score first goal of season eh! I think he will stay and get in the England squad very soon once Macca has found where Pompey is on the map.

Vital View - League 2, 18th February 2017

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
