Baros denies Pompey links

Baros denies Pompey links

Among all the Harry Redknapp talk I managed to find a little 'snippet' on setanta sports that Pompey might have shown an interest in Milan Baros?

It was reported that he could return to the English game with Pompey being interested, but he has told L'Equipe that he wants to stay with Lyon and when asked said there had been any interest shown by Pompey, he denied this: 'I never said I want to leave OL. What I want is playing as many games as I can to have a chance to play Euro 2008.

'I never spoke about a transfer to anybody. I am Lyonnais.

'I hope I will play against Toulouse on Saturday. I don't know if I will start next weekend'.

This seems to have crept up from nowhere, although we are being linked to just about everyone aren't we!

To be honest I have always liked the fella, so if we could get him, he would come here and we could afford him - which we cannot - I would be more than happy with this, but it is not going to happen is it.

One thing that is sure though is that until we know what the situation is regarding our manager and who it is going to be the task of attracting players - which is something we desperately need to do - is something that will be even more difficult for us, which is a major concern...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Setanta Sports appear to be a dodgy place to pick up rumours at the mo. Mind you Baros would fit the bill short term.

he's a decent player with plenty of experience and some success, as long as he wasnt too expensive I would welcome him. You brought up an excellent point rug, this whole Harry to Newcastle thing is certainly deterring players from coming to the club, noone wants to move to a club and have the manager that brought them to the club move out

Nice thought but unlikely, especially under the current chaos.

experiance player - but i dont think he has the "flair" we want. that said, if we could get him on loan till the african players return, anything would be good!

He would have done a decent job for us until the end of the season, never mind lets hope that we get a couple of players in soon.

On this day in history...11th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 11th February.

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.
