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

Berlin didn't take our breath away

Remember Berlin Nlome-Ndebi - better known as Berlin? Well the fella who signed for Pompey a couple of years back after a successful pre season trial appears to have left for good?

Over the summer the word was that he had left anyway, then all of a sudden he appeared in the reserves again recently, something which some of us saw as being a good thing for the future - as we spoke about in the forum.

But the BBC are now reporting that 'Crawley manager Steve Evans is pleased to have signed the former Portsmouth striker on a short term contract', the key words being 'former Portsmouth striker' - which would imply that he has gone and will not be coming back.

So it would appear that Berlin will never take our breath away...

I can't believe nobody has commented on Rug's pun .... I'm saddened by this news I thought he'd cruise to being a Top Gun for Pompey... Maybe 'arry just lost that loving feeling with the Maverick striker...... whoa I'm scaring myself now .. too many references

he played for the reserves - but that was all. i doubt he will really be missed. My only (half) memory of him was reading he had scored a hatrick in a reserve game, and wondering why i had never heard of him before...

At least we know what the Crawley Manager said to make him join: You can be my wing man any time.........

Ah, Crawley Town. Hope they're no longer wearing the ghastly pink shirts that they worse when my brother played for them in the 80s.
