Hypothetically speaking....

Hypothetically speaking....
It seems that Kranky may soon be leaving us, with a reported 10 million bid being put in place by Panathinaikos, and again, if rumours are true, we could net a cool 7 million for Utaka, which would be coup of the century!

I also reckon we may get rid of a 'high-flyer', as much as I don't want to see any of our big lads go. If it'd be anyone, it'd be Johnson, and considering he's just signed a four-year extension, whoever buys him will probably have to fork out close to 15-18 million.

So, presuming we could have all that in the transfer kitty, who do you reckon we could get?

I'd like to sign Pennant permanently, as he's a good right-wing equivalent to Belhadj, who I still haven't given up on.

I could also see us going for Matty Taylor and GON, the former apparently starting to make noises that he isn't finding life up north that great anymore, the latter already as good as nailing his colours to the mast.

If 'he' is getting rid of the likes of Bent and Jenas, we could make a cheeky bid for either or both of them.

The other one I've been thinking about could, depending on his status at the end of the season, be an outside possibility. A certain French-man who likes his razors....

What do you guys reckon? A bit of light banter, long before the end of the season!

Pies fantastic article - and one I reckon will strike up plenty of debate. Gonna put a lot of thought in it tonight, but I don't think GON or Taylor should come back - in my opinion Belhadj and Pennant (if we sign him) will do the job just as well, if not better, than they will. And I tell you what if that Frenchman signs for us, I'll buy you a season ticket!!

Nice one pies - however I think if we get big bucks for Niko or Glen it will go straight in the bank!! Bargain basement players again and there are a lot out of contract in the summer.

A very strange article I must say... Everybody is thinking about the end of this season, and this article is looking beyond. Very Good! We should start thinking. Well, personally I am a great fan of Benjani, and I am sure that many of you out there are willing to see him back at Fratton. Don't take me wrong, but I would want to see him coming for a good 5million and sell Crouch. I would want Johnson to stay, and yes please, try to get Matty again. Krancjar can go.. He is not doing what we need him to do. Belhadj can perform better, if we give time and space. One thing for sure is that I will be looking forward to see Kaboul in the centre of defence.

I hope Johnson stays too, but I am already half-resigned to losing him. If we get good money for Krunchie then it would be a good deal. Not sure we should try to get back too many old faces, but I would like to see GON come back. As for that Frenchman, its been in the back of my mind for a few years, it would be a real coup!

If we don't have a new owner, I can't see much money being spent whatever cash comes in. The only real quality we have that has real value is Niko, Glen & Crouchie. If they go & little comes in to replace, added to those going that are out of contract, then we are a dead duck. That of course is the very worst case scenario. Hoping for the best is another story.

Lord knows I whats going to happen in the summer. I have a feeling Dystain might be tempted away, leaving a whole in the team for a bruising centre-half (Robert Huth?). I won't let Crouch go. Glen is pretty unique but I'd take Steven Warnock if I had to.

If Nico did go i would like to forgive Kamara and give him another go as the option on the left. In defence Dunne will get the boot at City when they splash the cash and i would love him to come and form a partnership with Kaboul or Distin. Up front it would be Benjani for me, if we do survive Gary O will be back i am sure.

A very tough call, and I think it mught depend on who goes down at the end of the season. If it is the Geordies, well then I can see us going in for a few of their players, maybe Martins or Butt? Both I think would be great replacements for any lost players, but could we afford them?

Vital View - League 2, 18th February 2017

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
