This is just ridiculous now...

This is just ridiculous now...

Seriously fellas, you could not make it up, City are again denying reports that Benjani had finally signed for the club...

A statement on the City website reads: 'Manchester City have tonight corrected press speculation that Benjani Mwaruwari has completed his transfer to the club from Portsmouth.

'Some news organisations have this evening claimed in unattributed stories that the Portsmouth striker has joined the Blues'.

Absolutely incredible!

A city spokesman also said: 'no deal has been completed. Manchester City remain in contact with the football authorities regarding this potential transfer, and any further developments will be announced first on mcfc.co.uk'.

Fellas, I just give up now to be honest...

I will not be writing anything further on this issue, even when it 'happens' - if it ever does - I do not think I can cover this again, I am tired with saying my goodbye's only to find it is not actually goodbye after all... saying once that he was gone to find out he had not was fantastic, for a while, twice is just ridiculous.

So as said I do not think I will be covering this topic again, as this is becoming more and more farcical as time goes by - unbelievable...

Man City hiarachy have said they don't want Benji. Sven has said he definately wants him. That will cause a rift. The FA have ordered Man City to complete the transfer. Another rift. Benji has issued a statement to the African press that he has completed the transfer and is now a Man City player. Defoe is a loan only until Benji's transfer is complete then it can be made permenant. This seems a bit off line with the rules. More rifts in the future unless the rules are clarified. What a mess!!

sorry again for saying the deal was 'done' only for citeh to again deny it - this time, despite what there statement reads it is done i have been told that 2 citeh officials have confirmed this, it just seems they want to announce it before anyone esle, and 'should' do it tomorrow... either way its an absolute joke now - i just hope that we havent let the mancs shaft us...

i just hope everyone sees it that way linvoy - some could see it as this site being 'a joke too' and might not think it a very 'crediable place', but i would hope not...

Rug... Don't worry about the credibility of the site mate... you have done a geat job keeping us all up to date with the latest and no matter what the next twist is I think most will look to Vital Pompey to get the 'full' picture.. the advantage you have is that you don't represent just one view.. you can take your info from whatever source you feel is reporting the correct stuff at the right time.. if anything your reporting has enhanced the reputation of Vital Pompey not damaged it...

I don't believe it ....... NewsNow have just broken a story that Newcastle want to scupper the Defoe deal as they feel that 'inaccuracies' in the paperwork invalidate BOTH transfers....

cheers Chix - apprecited... typical that this scenario should pan out the way it has today of all days! i was going through me old emails today and i found one from sometime ago - after an article had been written and submitted about nugent - and the fella was saying, what a joke vital pompey was and so on and so forth... this was not long after i had tkaen over, so i told him to be fair and that was all in the past. anyway, i emailed him today and said to him 'so what are your views on vital pompey now then mate' basically, ive had now reply, but i bet i will in the morning :-) you've gotta laugh havent you!

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.

On this day in history...7th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 7th February.

Sunday Chimes #67 - Pompey fall way short

Another home defeat, small crowds, the run in target, ZDS cup games now live and more .........
