Benjani undergoing City medical?

Benjani undergoing City medical?

It is being reporting that Benjani is undergoing a medical with Man City ahead of a proposed move away from Pompey...

Harry Redknapp has said that players will only be sold if others arrive, and L'Equipe have been reporting that Jermain Defoe will today finally seal a move to Pompey - so it could add up?

To say I would be devastated if Benjani left Pompey would be an understatement. As sad as I was when Gary O'Neil and Matty Taylor left, just the thought of us selling the fella leave me - and I will openly admit - close to tears...

All this is currently 'speculation' but it is gathering momentum, and as I said at the start of the day my worst fears were that Benjani might be sold - and it looks as though he might?

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Benjani for Lazy git Defoe is not a good deal. Kanoute AND Benjani, now I'd like that.

The worst case scenario id Baros is in to replace Benji & no one else turns up! Though it will sad to lose Benji, he is probably at his peak for selling. At 29 & what 2 & a bit years on his contract, it does make some sense providing we get another striker in. If Sasha is selling to balance his books it's bad for us.

I really hope these reports are rubbish - it would be a terrible move if we let Benji go. I'd be devastated too! First Sacha's reported to be selling, then our top scorer is reported to be leaving - this is a stressful day!

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.
