If PS's focused on takeover who's buying players?

If PS's focused on takeover who's buying players?
So Storrie stated over a week ago now that Monday this week he'd be abroad closing a few deals for players - two to be specific.

Yet so far we've seriously been linked with Dindane, a resurgence for M'Bami and the Bolton pair (which he would be heading in the wrong direction for closing that deal).

M'Bami and Dindane I'm interested in Sh*ittie and the other one... not so.

But it seems quite obvious that far from being on club business abroad closing deals - Storrie is on his own business closing a deal for Pompey.

Now I'd be the first to swap players for club stability right now and shut up the stupid pundit talk of relegation due to an unsettled squad.

However, being a cake and eat it man - who is out there doing the loan and try before you pay deals on the players we OBVIOUSLY need to compete in this league?

Specifically, cover at left and right back (given both our first choices are out injured currently) - a first choice RIGHT WING and a first choice strike partner for Piquionne?

We need at least four and in those positions. And preferably cover at CB (no, not Shittu).

So on one hand happy at an end to this unfortunate Pompey sale sage but unhappy that it would appear that our main transactor is otherwise engaged when we need some much needed reinforcements (is it a coincidence that transfer rumours have been few and far between while Storrie is distracted?)

Never thought of it like that Jim, but you are right. Storrie is paid to get us players, not negotiate his own deal. Maybe, I could volunteer to help out? Come on lads, who do you want?:-)

Another false statement from PS. Dread the day he actually has some ownership of the club.

would he not need to have the finances sorted 1st, before finalising deals for players?

Mixed feelings, guys, as long as it comes right in the end, I don't care what he does. When it comes down to it, we could do a lot worse (and have done) than Pete in any capacity.

yup, peter storrie is clearly out there closing deals - and lets hope he closes the big one quickly - that way we will hopefully have money to burn, and someone to burn it! Who's closing the deals right now? well, I would like to think that storrie was so confidant the deal would go through SOON, that there is no point bringing in the cheap rubbish we can afford now, when in a couple of days time we will be able to bring in expensive(ish) talent.

TO CLARIFY - I will be ecstatic is PS takes over and brings stability. I have no doubt he's doing this for the right reasons and would love to have someone with his history with the club in charge. I was merely pointing out - it's a bit worrying with only 10 days to go... but then that's a long time in transfer terms

I dont think storrie would have put out the statement on the official site about his takeover bid unless it was a done deal. He's seen how prematurely announcing these things can backfire (Saf) and we all know how he keeps his cards close to his chest. I reckon its just dotting the T's on the takeover and he's busying himself with getting some players to keep us in the prem.

Fair play to the bloke, he's more than capable of doing both and would not be doing himself any favours were he not lining up new signings.

carpet makes a good point. Storrie knows how close the deal is, and knows whats available, so hopefully it'll mean we'll get players who are fo good quality.

Evans - Right back or right midfield?

Drew Talbot and Adam Buxton are fit but Gareth Evans continues to fill in at right back. Should this change? If so where would it leave the battle between Evans and Carl Baker?
