2m for Matty Taylor - yea right...

Okay so Matty Taylor might, well in fact he probably will leave Pompey in January but the reports that the Daily Mail are offering up are ludicrous...

It says that Fulham are, and get this 'considering' offering £2m for Taylor!

£2m that would not even buy his weaker right foot let along his magic wond of a left foot.

I know Christmas is a time for giving and the New Year often sees the 'sales' but Taylor is worth - at a rock bottom price - at least double that amount, so if he was sold for as little as £2m, or should I say Pompey allowed him to leave for £2m I would be absolutely disgusted...

Market values are ridiculous at the moment especially in the Premiership. That's why a second-rate striker can move across London for 16.5million and a top world class striker can move from Italy to Germany for only 10.5million. With that thought, Matt has to worth 6-8million? Ha ha ha.

Lita would be a great purchase. He's a young striker with a lot of potential who seems to have fallen off the radar so value could be good for us.

We'd offer 2m if were buying, so you can understand others taking the****. Of course when he goes (bl00dy shame) we will want 5m+.

taylor will go wont he - that much we almost certainly know, damn shame but there you go... i reckon that his going will be of part of some other deal bringing a player to pompey, but who? lets see... spurs want him, defoe and cash - from pompey - would see business done... reading want him, lita and cash - from reading - would see a deal... villa want him, cash could do a deal, please god dont let them offer us harewood again, luckily we missed him once... fulham want him, do they have a player that we might want?
