'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pompey 'after' Nolberto Solano?

Pompey have been linked with many players, many of which will have been nothing more than paper talk, but one of the most recent names is Nolberto Solano.

It had been claimed that the Peruvian wished to move to a club in the south for family reasons, with Pompey said to be interested, along with yep you guessed it West Ham. But it is now also claimed that he is 'mulling' over a move to Pompey.

I like Solano, he has been a very good footballer in the years he has been in England but my thinking is is he really any better than the right sided players we currently have?

In the main stays of that right hand side we have John Utaka, who seems to be excelling out on the right, along with Gary O'Neil, although maybe not as affective on the right will still do a great job.

Yep, Solano would offer that undoubted natural width and could also play at right back if needed but the fella is 32 so how many more years would he have in him? As said he is a good footballer, actually a classy footballer, but I would not really see this as a move forward by us to be honest. It is also my belief that other areas of the team are more in need of strengthening.

From a Newcastle fan - he'd be a great signing for you and has been a fantastic servant to the club. Up there with Pavel and Albert as our favourite foreign player.
SirLes
from your end mate is there much genuine truth in this rumour?
pompeyrug
I think he's a great player, it all depends on whether he's expecting a starting spot. If he's happy to fight for a place and will accept a 'short' ish contract, he would be worth having. Good free kicks, eh?
Et_tu_Pompeii
He stood in well last season at Right Back showing his versatility - hey we need him with our back four down to the bare bones!!

Gents i was digging around during my disagreement with carpet and it seems they are taking it seriously reet ooop noorth mon, theyre reet ganin cany ooverim. LBH Harry has been after him for years and they have refudsed to sell, so the fact that the barcodes are have finally decided to let him go probably means he is past his best
russellm
But if he came cheap?
Et_tu_Pompeii
then possibly yes, but as cover only, he is not really a move forward
russellm
those were my exact last words werent they russ... 'As said he is a good footballer, actually a classy footballer, but I would not really see this as a move forward by us to be honest'...

We keep dipping into former Newcastle has beens - sorry Lua Lua being the exception...but remember the LOONEY TOON Laurent Robert.

Squad cover at best, another to add to the Djimi, Herman, Kanu camp and lets face it GON is not going play in the middle this year -I think well have Sully and Pedro there with Matty on the left - Davis seems to be favorite cover in the middle too so with Utaka and GON on the right Nobby would only be cover at best... but if he's cheap and cheerful why not... as Et_tu says good free kicks
Chix
Would make a great right wing back to complement Matty on the left.
