Benjani finally signs for City

I have been 'tipped off' - Benjani has completed his transfer to City... this is also now being reported by sky sports.

The fans favourite looked as though he had completed his transfer on deadline day before a complete farce followed, but some 4 days or so after the closure of that window he has finally gone to City.

It is with a heavy heart that I - and I now doubt say most, if not all of you - say goodbye to Benji but from a business point of view Jermain Defoe arriving - and he will now make the switch from a loan to a permanent one - is a good one.

Details of a fee involved and a length of contract are not known at this time - and maybe they never will be?

I have this feeling of déjà vu having already wished Benjani all the best, but this really is it this time he has gone, good luck to the fella, City have signed a special player...

special player indeed, but he isnt there solutions for goals, I dont think he will gel as much in the team, and sven, well i dont know, but I cant seeing sven getting the best out of him.

ive got to feel sorry for him. hence my feeble attept at mainting a months silence, which i have now broken injust 4 days...oh well, at least i am aking an effort. he wont gel, we will miss him, he was pompey throuygh and through, what mor can i say? WE'LL MISS YOU BENJI!!!!

Well said Carps and I know you've probably got a tear in your eye mate... Benji was Pompey through an through and epitomised everything about the club.. but life (& football) goes on and all you can do is wish him the best of luck, follow his career (except against Pompey) and start to worship the new boys in town.... Good business Harry, in the long run we'll be better off... Benjani's place in Pompey folklore is well and truly written..

I know you guys love him, and I like him alot, but at the end of the day, hess a bloke whos done great for himself, and will become a favourite at city for sure, and will countinue being happy. carpet, emotionally yes we will miss him, but come on mate, defoe is on the tier above.
Gleams
With you Chix. A shame it went the way it did but the comfort is he will be remembered by those of us that saw it all.

We will keep in our personal halls of fame, alongside Whittingham and Toddy.

What can I add to the above? Nothing really mine and my wifes best wished to Benji for the future and thanks for all the miles you ran for the cause. 19 goals in 69 games was a decent rate for the PL and you proved the many doubters (mostly in the media) wrong!!
eastneydave
hate to see him leave but i gotta say it was a decent piece of business on harry's part, I dont think he will ever be as good as he was here, and I hope he comes back to pompey for a victory lap at the end of his career
whitestones
fellas i dont believe it... he's still not gone! citeh are again denying reports that he has, this is bloody ridiculous now, i didnt think it could get anymore farcical but it has...
pompeyrug
sky sports were not the basis of this article - but i think they've been very crafty as they have taken their original article and completely changed it as if they 'werent' one of the front running 'leading' the 'speculation' that it was done... i was gutted that we were losing benji, accepted this, wanted it done then 'when it was' was upset again, but relieved now i am just angry as this is a joke!
