Alrighty, I'll have £40 on Ben Haim to come in, £40 on Kranky to get stuffed, and a cheeky £20 at Nuno Assis to come in.
PompeyFrippy
Kranjcar Is looking like a safe bet to leave .. Might be worth taking the odds nowbefore they shorten later in the morning and according to some papers Tal Ben Haim has passed a medical and signed already ! Place your Bets Now
Chix
Frippy
Well you got there before my message posted so you already know I think it's a good bet .. Nuno Assis however went quite yesterday but there seems to be a bit of press mix-up between him and Hadj Aissa [Edited by hickin]
Chix
£10 on Yebda signing.
PompeyFcMad
geez Chix u look set to go into Administration if your'e taking those bets on Ben Haim ;)
nodster
Scanning through the longshots Assis was the only one I thought with the slightest chance of heading our way. Don't know anything about Aissa, but Assis looked decent when he played against us, not sure how he would adapt to the Premier League. So are you pulling an all nighter then Chix?
PompeyFrippy
Mad
Consider it done... but just a £10 .. not that confident then? or are you saving the rest of your dosh for later in the day ?
Chix
Nods
I've seen many a deal be reported but never come off ! .. Although I do like to give a little back to the masses once in a while ;)
Chix
Frippy
I'll go for anout an hour or so .. then back on from about 7am right the way through (with the odd Stella break) until the window slams shut at 5pm
Chix
Yh Chix im saving my money lol. But it does looks like a done deal, i should of put more on it now.
PompeyFcMad
Info Hadj Aissa is currently with Wifaq Setif and is a highly-regarded attacking midfielder. Reports from Algeria suggest the international team-mate of Nadir Belhadj may cost a fee of around £400,000 [Edited by hickin]
Chix
Looking forward to it, gutted I have to work at 4 tomorrow so I'll miss the last hour, and of course the 10 hours sleep I need to function. I look forward to coming home, grabbing a beer and peeking through the curtains of the closed window and see what I missed in that all important hour.
PompeyFrippy
well for now i'll take £40 on kranjcar leaving but thats only cause its a done deal and i want at least 30 each for the other 2 bets (maximum of 3 sounds harsh to me mate lol) i think i know who i'll bet on but i'll leave till morning
pompeym@
Mad
You still can add more if you are that confident .. but it's only the Daily Mirror who are reporting it....oh and the BBC now.. Umm as good as official .. I reckon.. but NOT official yet !
Chix
Merkov
shepsblade
Pompeym@
I will be delighted if Kranjcar goes.. Party round mine I reckon...
Chix
Shepsblade
Merkov? - Is that Paul Mersons Russian cousin or a Yorkshire insult ?
Chix
I'm assuming that official is defined as shown on the OS. I have a funny feeling we won't be seeing that updated until morning time.
PompeyFrippy
mate i'd be jumping for joy if we got rid of lazy tw@, defiantly worth a party lol but i'd drop ben haim its done as far as i'm concerned. but just cause i can i'll put a tenner on this Radoslaw Merkov guy just cause its 50/1, i don't really expect it too come off but i'll be so happy when kranjcar goes it don't matter :D haha
pompeym@
Frippy
Yep Official is OS - And they are al in bed now so I'd expect nothing before 10am from them...
Chix
I raise it to £30 on Yabda signing
PompeyFcMad
pompeyM@
Where's the link to Merkov - I know of him but have seen or heard no connections.. Have I missed one ? .. Also I'll drop Ben Haim at two... just to give a few more punters the chance to make a little killing... I'm nice like that !
Chix

Chix
na you ain't missed one its just from shepsblades thread in the forums mate but i've always been one to take a bit of a gamble ;), and it now looks like yabda is done and dusted so £25 on him my good man :D, (so thats 40 on kranj out, 25 on yabda in, and 10 on merkov) and i promise thats it for now... :S lol.
pompeym@
i take the merkov thing back, looks like it was a joke, that i fell for XD oh well that'll teach me to bet late at night/early in the morning specially after i've had a few :D hehe (also explains why its taking me 3 times as long to write anything lol)

Re: Merkov, lafferz has done a little research and has put forward a very convincing case that Radoslaw Merkov does not exist... http://www.portsmouth.vitalfootball.co.uk/forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=8198&posts=9#M76110 (about 5th-6th post down)

pompeym@
You can't take you money back .. a bet is a bet.. but I'll put the extra on the others for you.. at least I've made a tenner (lol)
Chix
75 quid on Benjani - a big boost for the fams, 25 quid on Eugen Bopp - he played in a reserve game the other day
StuartM
StuartM
Just in the nick of time.. Benjani's odds are about to be shortened to 3/1 but you got in a 5's
Chix
STOP PRESS @ 0215hrs
Betting Suspended on TAL BEN HAIM... Odds shortened on Yebda, Aissa, Benjani, Zenden , Kranjcar & Nugent.... Odds lengthened on David James - SEE MAIN ARTICLE
Chix
That'll make my day if we get Benjani back. so I reckon we'll get Benjani, Ben Haim and Bopp!
StuartM
So Benjani and Bopp at 5/1 each.
StuartM
StuartM
Benjani @ 5's ... Bopp @ 4/1 that's £575 if they come off !
Chix
Benjani, Ben Haim and Nuno Assis will be my pick.
Pompey Malta
StuartM
Benjani @ 5's ... Bopp @ 4/1 that's £575 if they come off !
Chix
PompeyMalta
Ben Haim is now suspended so I'll take that as £50 each on the other two unless I hear different before I resume in the (latter) morning
Chix
Benjani down to 3's? You seen him outside a 24hr petrol station near Fratton Chix?
PompeyFrippy
only 3 Million pound for Niko!? Bleedin Yids! we paid 3.5mil for him 3yrs ago!! they really got some nerve..
nodster
IN Hassan Yebda £20 Jonas Gutierrez £10 Mike Williamson, £20 Onismor Bhasera £5 Steve Gohouri £10 Henri Camera, £5 Stefan Djordjevic £5 Benjani £10 Michael Ball, £10 OUT David Nugent £5 WELL HERE HOPING ON THE LAST ONE
plymouth graham
Right I'm playing safe, £100 each on Niko, Ben Haim, and Benjani, not going to retire, but looking goog for a day off work! If Ben Haim is not allowed I'll stick it on Nosworthy
paultsmouth
(Re)Morning All
Well it's 07:00 hrs and we are just 10 hours away from that window slamming shut.. I'll review the over night gossip then adjust the odds so if you think you are in the know .. now is your chance to 'Place a bet'
Chix
Frippy
Bejani at 3's is still a good bet.. that's he he can actually arrive at a certain place on time !
Chix
Nodster
£3 million for Niko ! - I've heard £2.5 !.. ah well that's probably more than he is worth in my opinion.. betting maybe suspended on Kranjcar very shortly !
Chix
Plymouth Graham
Maximum of three bets I'm affraid my friend so I've taken your fist three names and reapportioned you dosh in the same percentages.. £40 Yebda, £20 Gutierrez & £40 Williamson - Shout by 0800hrs if you want to change it!
Chix
Paultsmouth
It's £100 in total .. So I've split your across the three mentioned .. but Ben Haim now suspended so Niko, Benjani & Nosworthy
Chix
should have read the small print..a bit hungover..however that was where i started..Al Fahim seems to be a man of his word so far and i seeem to recall he said he was talking about Jonas and Zaki...so there you have it..Williamson...well as our super stars leave for the the "big" clubs..we nick a smaller clubs players in return with the lure of playing in the big league..Yebda debda doooh..where are you ... he 's signng for Pompey .. I suppose the Press will be happy now they have stripped the bones of our club and got all the big names sold..i suppose they will continue to berate SAF until they can get us out of the premier league
plymouth graham
i will put...
£40 on Steve Gohouri (@11/2)
£20 on Hadj Aissa (@7/4)
£40 on Boudewijn Zenden (@7/2)
pompeyrug
Plymouth Graham
So I take it you are happy with my allocation ... Yebda debda doooh .. (lol)
Chix
Rug
Consider it done landlord - some good bets I reckon !!
Chix
maybe, altho i suspect that gohouri and zenden deals might not be the priority today as both are free agents, so will remain that even after 5pm...
pompeyrug
Rug
Too True .. but we'll see .. If they don't sign by window closure your money is mine !
Chix
Stop Press @ 08:30
Betting suspended on Kranjcar – Odds shortened on Nosworthy, Gohouri & Zenden as ‘ins’ and Ashdown as an ‘outs’ - Odds lengthened on M’Bami & Fabrice Pancrate as ‘ins’ and David James as ‘outs’
See main article for latest odds
Chix
Mad , Pompeym@ & Ply Graham
Looks like you could be in the money my friends.. nothing official but Yebda appears to have signed on loan.. apparently !
Chix
ive won a tenner scooby dooh has signed
plymouth graham
Ply Graham
Yep you are a tenner up .. but I'm still waiting for official confirmation.. but what about Williamson & Guttierez ??.. Do you still have faith in them coming!
Chix
that was too easy guys the news of yebda 'officially' signing came out yesterday afternoon/evening :-) i like to live life dangerously so didnt go for the likes of yebda or the like...
pompeyrug
A mate just called to say he's seen Benjani this morning at Farnborough airport - less than a hour drive from Pompey.
NinjaTim
Rug
Yebda... 'official'.. not 'official, official' yet though.. although to me it sounds down.. Where's Eastneydave and his taxi drivers when you need them !
Chix
Ninja Tim
Benjani has been spotted in about 5 different places so far (see ohter article).. But Farnbrough is further away than Basingstoke so I'm getting worried again !
Chix
Benjani was apparently in Scotland last night..
nodster
50 on aissa (hes cheap, interesting and something we dont have, its more because i HOPE we get him.) surprised you havent suspended the betting on yebda? seems just as likely as anything at the moment.
swanny17
Swanny
£50 on Aissa it is.. but I thought you were gonna back Benjani ?
Chix
So I will quickly take £100 on Yebeda and £100 on Shorey please bookie man.
sneakay
Also a quick cheeky £50 on Jonas Gutierrez as an out side chance.
sneakay
£60 on Benjani coming in, £20 each on Niko leaving and Yebda coming in please.
jbaker
Argh! Misunderstood, thought we had £100 altogether! In which case £100 on each.
jbaker
J Baker
You were right first time. Sneakay
led you up the (wrong) Garden path - Good to see you back with us .. Where you been mate?
Chix
Sneakay
£100 in total my friend .. I've split yours 40/40/20 ok?
Chix
J Baker (again)
Oh just realised You can no longer have Niko.. Betting was suspended earlier this morning.. you therefore have £20 left..
Chix
Stop Press @ 10:45
Betting suspended on Krancjar, Ben Haim, Hassan Yebda & Nicky Shorey
Odds shortened on Hadj Aissa, Mike Williamson Zaki & Zenden as 'ins`
Odds lengthened on Benjani (he ain`t coming)

jbaker
JBaker

Chix
Re Benjani - oh, yes he is. I'll have 11/2 please Chix.
NinjaTim
That's £50 at 11/2
NinjaTim
Vital Spurs' says the James deal has been vetoed by Levy.
NinjaTim
Ninja Tim
It is your money to waste.. £50 @ 11/2 it is.. Also I think Jamos gonna Sunderland ..if anywhere so that holds with that story
Chix
ahhh baker, thats what i thought as well, man i shouldn't go near the interent late at night i end up looking like a complete twit XD
pompeym@
and chix how the hell did you go to bed at 3am and get up at 7, that would have killed me lol
pompeym@
PompeyM@
3am-7am ... That's a doddle.. actually I was up at 06:30 but had a coffee first (lol) .. I'm gonna see this through to the end .. promise !
Chix
STOP PRESS @ 13:00
So we have two 'officially' confirmed
Frippy gains £50
Mad gains £53
PompeyM@ gains £44
Ply Graham & Sneakay also gain £50
JBaker gains £25

But as it stands I have taken bets of £830 and paid out £271 so I am winning with a hefty (so far) profit of £559
Chix
That's fine Chix sorry for the mix up! Looks like my two £40 bets are in the bag now though.
sneakay
If you have yet to place your bet.. do so soon .. odds will change at about 1400 hrs.
Chix
haha i like this yedba guy, he ain't kicked a ball yet and i'm up £19 from him XD
