Defoe interest stepped up...

Defoe interest stepped up...

...well it is according to 'reports' in today's papers.

They are saying that Harry Redknapp is to step up his pursuit of Jermain Defoe and will ask Sacha Gaydamak to give him the funds to make an approach.

This 'link' has been a long and tedious one that just will not go away no matter what, so lets see once and for all if Defoe really would be interested in moving to Pompey, or if he sees us as 'too small' by making this approach if he is the striker that Redknapp wants.

Spurs are prepared to sell if he wants to go, so as said lets see what the score is. Not everyone is keen on Defoe but he will score goals, and this is what we have been lacking from our strikers this season.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

if we bid good money and had this accepted for fred then we must have money dont we think? taylor has been waiting for a reading interest, so if it comes - or has - then he'd love to go there, lita wants to leave so a deal could happen...

After yesterdays display we do need 2 or 3. Lita, yes wouldn't mind that does add genuine pace to our attack. Still think we need a midfielder and would go for Sidwell on loan from Chelsea. Also right winger, what position does that Hunt play for Reading?

HR claims he had no sweeteners offered to make him stay - pay rise, transfer kitty etc. - but this has to be the week that we make a move in the market. It was clear to see yesterday that we need reinforcements if we are to reach our goal of Europe. I have the feeling this might be a busy week.

Defoe will go to Villa if he goes anywhere, Lita is probably an option but i dont think he really wants to leave, i dont think we will do much business and the month will be a disaster for us. I really feel we are going to be let down by the club, and it will be our fault for not looking at the bigger picture.

Harry really wants him, can we afford him or can we not afford to have him?

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.
