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

Spanish 'Guiza' linked with Pompey

At the tail end of the week Harry Redknapp was saying on the Pompey Site how a new striker would almost complete his squad for this season - and today's papers are again 'linking' us with a 5m move for Real Mallorca striker Daniel Guiza.

During the week we were 'rumoured' to be interested in both him and apparent long term transfer target Jonas Gutierrez, with it said we would make a 10m - or thereabouts - double swoop, but this was played down but Mallorca.

It is now being said that Redknapp is prepared to 'firm up' his interest by bidding 5m this week.

The Sunday papers are also once again linking us with Peter Crouch though, with a 9m offer being prepared and there is more talk about a move for Milan Baros now that Fred is apparently staying with Lyon.

Clearly money is no option for Pompey - well when it comes to paper talk anyway!

We do need a striker, and in order to get the goalscorer that we are looking for we will have to shell out another 5m - minimum - I would think, but do we have the finances to do this? I would guess that we would find this out in the coming week...

Exciting stuff - Crouch, Guiza or Jonas Gutierrez, blimey any one of those will do for the time being. PuP

I saw this was on again but whether it is the papers digging out old rumours or real speculation who knows. HR is on record as you say over a new striker and we cannot have only one man scoring goals. Benjani would play with a broken leg but he must not be replied upon to produce,

according to the sunday papers today harry kewell is available on a free and is going to fulham... if he is on a free - which i find highly unlikely - injury problems of not lets get in ahead of fulham... its been a pretty 'quiet' day for sunday 'rumours wise'...
pompeyrug
All you fellas keep on about needing a striker. If Utaka is played in his correct position we have four already. HR payed 13 million for two of them and the other two namely Kanu and Benji receive his continued praise. Were overloaded, we need a playmaker, watch our existing strikers then score the goals.

The press are all talking about this being a transfer mad week but in truth they have come up with nothing new of any substance.
eastneydave
Lots of talk, more action please. Nugent sadly ain't the answer, he is no more than a very good championship player but he is not a top ten premier league player.

Still don't know much about geeza, but his goal scoring record isn't half bad
paultsmouth
we need a goalscorer - and that we do not have! guiz only scores one every 3 games - so is that better than we have already? guiterez is the same, and crouch and defoe dont really play enough to get a good idea of his abilities
pompeycarpet
His career average maybe 1 in 3, but last 2 seasons it has been closer to 1 in 2
paultsmouth
true, its nine in 18 so far thsis eason...but then benjani is 12 in 23 this season!
pompeycarpet
Pompey rug; I couldn't agree more about Kewell. I have said since before the start of the season he was available cheap (free is even better) and we should grab him injuries or not. I was rubished by all quarters who said he wasn't available, was no good, and wouldn't come back from his injuries. He is not a 100% week in week out proposition at the moment but could play at least every second game or part of each match and give us that extra down the left wing.As far as any transfers in or out go I will wait and see. Too many rumours.
frattonaussie
a striker with a record of 1 in 2 is worth a punt, we've been crying out for a goalscorer for years... yep benji has a fantastic strike rate this season, but if we can get a 20 goal a season man along side him watch us fly!
pompeyrug
i was amazed when i heard sky sports saying that he was 'looking like' making a free transfer move to fulham - if we came in for him we would get him and i think he would be a fantastic signing...
pompeyrug
we would certainly get him ahead of fulham - well, hopefully anyway, as fulham are almost certainly going down (one look at there fixtures, and you can see they are doomed!!!) - a 20 goal a season player would be great, but very hard to find. how many of them are there in the prmiership in total? i count yakubu, torres, drogba and ronaldo...who else?
pompeycarpet
the premierhip is turning into a defenders game! (just thought, i might write an article on this!)
pompeycarpet
Carpet there's quite a few it would seem now. Anelka is on it (granted he'll have to find his feet at Chels now), Santa Cruz is on his way, McCarthy could have been if he hit form and stayed fit this season, Berbatov could definitely be if he wasn't being a pansy, Adebayor is going to hit it this year and of course BENJANI. Ha ha.
stillthewhizz
Guiza scored two goals in mallorca's last match, a 2-2 with levante
ausoccer
when i say 20 goals i do not mean all in the premier league, i meant spread throughout it - but there are plenty that can do this including our very own benji...
pompeyrug
Daniel Guiza or Milan Baros?.... Daniel Guiza. Milan Baros or Peter Crouch?....... Milan Baros... Guiza though is class and if we can get him will be flying
