07:00 Just to get us off and running Ive heard that a certain Zimbabwean striker missed a flight from Manchester yesterday because he fell asleep, apparently he decided to drive down South but was last seen at 04:30 in the M8 services !
Chix
The Twitchy one will sign all current Pompey players and rename Spurs....Bung City!! Pleased with the Ben-Haim signing.
DarrenOZ
07:05
The News are reporting that Ben Haim is a done deal.. mind you they said Zaki was done three weeks ago !.. still waiting for the official word
Chix
7.25am...been up since 5am..hit the Brandy last night ..Any way even if that was true chix..we need someone who will hit the onion bag...2.5m for Krunchy seems so low...spuds seem to do us in every deal...but he could go for nothing in the summer and as Rug elegantly said he would be a luxury this season...I would like some young players with talent to come in..I feel we will be OK come end of the season.....
plymouth graham
I would let Krunchy go (although he has tons of ability, he's given up) if we can swap him for someone. If its Spuds either we get O'Hara for keeps or someone like Dos Santos/Huddlestone plus cash.
DarrenOZ
boys i think we just gota wait and see our offical squad after end of the window
pompeyfan94
Plymouth Graham
2.5m for a lazy good for nothing who would only jog his way to the World Cup (especially now Modric has done himself in.. Bite their hand off I say .. as for a luxury .. so is Cavier but don't mean I like it (lol)
Chix
DarrenOz
I like the idea of Kranjcar for Dos Santos or Huddlestone but surely we would owe them money ;)
Chix
I hate Harry Redknapp
chrizPFC
Fan'94
Yeah we know that.. but there's no fun in that is there.. better to build ourselves into a frenzy .. knowing that it'll al be over by 5pm
Chix
Chriz
On behalf on the majority .. well said mate !

My neighbour has just returned from a camping holiday in North Devon - He camped near Jamo's house .. The word on the street there is that he's off to Sunderland for a cash + player deal for Nosworthy !
Chix
Eugene Bopp played for the reserves last week so I reckon this is one Paul Hart will get sooner than later - but fortunately we now have enough midfielders that we shouldn't expect him to play
StuartM
StuartM
Bopp is a wierd one .. He's been around since June so either Hart's gonna offer him something or has just helped a mate put himself in the shop window.. I can't see why he'd need to wait for Transfer deadline day though.. Why would he not have done it sooner .. at a push I'd say no!
Chix
Chixy, you're gonna be a busy boy today.
bluedr
Hasn't Jamo recently been camera'd with a dolly from Hollyoaks? A move up north would seem more likely!
bluedr
2.5 m is not enough, HR would have gone more. I heard Benji was seen going round and round and round a roundabout in Basinstoke
russellm
I'll be very surprised if James leaves, mind you if he does then Begovic seems a handy replacement...Yes Redknapp seriously sucks, I'm sick of his today already!!
DarrenOZ
Bluedr
Busy.. yep I am.. but I love transfer deadline day .. keep your eye on this thread to see how I'm doing throughout the day!
Chix
Bluedr
Jamo has indeed been seen with 'our jac-key from Hollyoaks .. was introduced to here by Jermaine Pennant apparently who was going out with Merecedes from Hollyoaks .. but she dumped him for me !
Chix
Russellm
If it's the roundabout I'm thinking of in Basingstoke .. I've been around that a few times too ...
Chix
DarrenOZ
The thing with Jamie's Dad is that his team is down to the 'bare bones' so he really does have to buy.. must be tough at the top of the league.. but the only way is down.. whereas for us the only way is up... What a band D-Ream were eh boys !
Chix
Chix, stirling job so far...keep up the good work and lets hops for a couple of surprises. I was hoping we might be linked to the lad Olsen at WBA, not bad for a CB.
bluedr
Apparently Yebda has signed on loan from Benfica??
bluedr
Bluedr
Cheers mate I appreciate your comments.. Olsen..umm.. now there's a name I'll have to have a dig on him.. As for Yebda.. I've get your bet on (see other article) if I were you .. his odds may shorten soon!!
Chix
Chix, I live up in the midlands and there are strong rumours going around about Matty Richie joining Sven's bandwagon at Notts County. I expect this to happen today if we bring in another striker Benji/Zaki.
bluedr
Bluedr
Yeah I've heard the rumopurs about Maty Ritchie to County.. but did you know Benjani has also been linked to them.. and Kanu.. and even Patrick Vieira !!
Chix
Shorey on way to Fratton after we agree a fee with Villa. Just how many GP's/Physio will Pompey need today to get through all of those potential medicals.
bluedr
scooby yebda dooh looks a good signing if the net info is to be believed, shorey is ok redknob tried and failed to sign him
plymouth graham
Chix The Toast team are out and about with their eyes pealed and any news will be sent straight to you by sms. Back to work after 2 weeks off and 500+ emails to answer!!

Your room is booked for 19th if you still require it.
eastneydave
Blurdr & Ply Gra
Yep word is that Shorey in 'first in line' at the Park for a medical how many and who are behind him we don't know.. one source has told me SEVEN... but if Shorey comes on loan as expected that both our domestic loans used up.. As for Yebda.. The Portuguse site reckon he was one of Benficas better players last season.. looks promising... Still no news of Benjani .. maybe his sat nav has broken !
Chix
Eastneydave
That was wired I'd just typed your name on another thread !.. Re the room I will let you know for defo this week.. Cheers mate and keep any updates coming!

Chix
Could be as many as eight I am told.
eastneydave
make sure i get this info too :-)
pompeyrug
The trials and tribulations of Benji's trips around the UK need a special methinks!
eastneydave
any news on shipping out hughes,mullins,basinas,nugent or utaka??? our squad has gone from being the smallest in the prem to the biggest.. with 12 holding midfielders..
pompeyhussler
Just seen Benji heading for Swaffham........
NorfolknBlue
hughes,mullins,basinas,moka,diop,ohara,kaboul,botang,yebda. thats 9 holding midfielders in our squad that must be a record. can anyone think of anymore..
pompeyhussler
No - he's just done a U turn - right in front of that pony & cart.
NorfolknBlue
brown that makes 10.
pompeyhussler
Nuge to Forest - breaking rumour
NorfolknBlue
what worries me is that kaboul is the most attacking out of the lot. and hes our centre half. and will probley score more goals than any of these.
pompeyhussler
hey guys, new fella from australia here, been reading your site for ages and think its great! im thinking of 100 on benji...his love for pompey should bring him back (can someone remind me why he left in the first place?)

swanny17
welcome swanny, glad you joined us :-) well benji didnt have a say in the matter did he jamie's dad wanted defoe in which meant benji had to go - at the time i must admit i thought it made really good sense, hindsight is a wonderful thing isnt it - just look at the likes of taylor, o'neil and mendes aswell that would have all been fantastic now, but 'bigger, better and more highly paid' footballers, so called 'professionals' were turned to instead - but hey ho, i think we are starting to rebuild a 'proper' squad again made up of people that will want to play for the shirt, the club and the fans again.
pompeyrug
Chix.. RE: Ben Haim - how can you get more official than Jewish Telegraph? cmon
nodster
Norfolk, swap deal including the Flag Waver Tyson? We know Harty likes him???
bluedr
glad to be here...dont know why i didnt join earlier. and thanks for the info on benji. frankly like alot of us on here id like to see him back, but we need men that can hit the net week in week out. i know its youtube, but dindane looks immense on there. Also, id really like to see aissa, saw a photo of him training with us, and he looks like a very creative dribbler (something we DONT have) and best of all hes NOT a holding midfeilder!!! cheap too (with him and yebda we will have 3 algerians :S)

Re the defensive midfielders .. It's all part of Paul Harts plan for his new formation it's called 1-10 .. apparently it's a bit defensive lol
Chix
NorfolknBlue
Where's Swaffham.. sounds awfully posh?..
Chix
Swanny17
Hi ya fella .. I'll stick your 100 on Benjani in the other thread.. if he can find Fratton Park (again) I'm sure you are on to a winner .. welsome by the way !
Chix
Norfolk
Nuge to Forest eh... loan or perm ? and a suggested Bluedr
swap for Nathan Mike Tyson.. Interesting
Chix
sorry chix, i put in one on the other thread for 50 on aissa :P just because i hope we get him...i have a good feeling about him...an x-factor?
swanny17
Swanny
Three Algerians eh.. I wonder if the other two can speak English .. or will French become the language of the dressing room ... if it is not already .. ALLEZ LES BLEUS
Chix
basinas !!>?? no chance for him now ship him out.. and hughes . love the bloke but would like to see him play first team football else where.. nugent loan probley best option as can only add to his value which at the moment is about 250k haha
pompeyhussler
Swanny
Saw it mate all done.. but still 50 to spend if you want it!
Chix
Hussler
I gotta agree about Basinas (sadly) but who would want him ??? at his age.. Notts County ?
Chix
Sky update - James is 'desparate' to go apparently - but still at training ground.
NorfolknBlue

pompeyhussler
WHAT WE DO NEED IS A FRENCH SPEAKING ASSISTANT MANAGER OR COACH. AS 90% OF THE SQUAD IS FRENCH OR SPEAKS IT.
pompeyhussler
Another Sky update - Benji apparently cannot sign permanently for a UK club, this would require a Work Permit and applications for such had to be presented by 12.00 yesterday they say - but he could go on loan (not to us then).
NorfolknBlue
Also Shorey on his way for medical - passed Benji going in the other direction!
NorfolknBlue
I never thought I'd hear Swaffham and posh in the same sentence.
NorfolknBlue
Norfolk
Yeah re Jamo . that's what I'm hearing too .. Sunderland if Sprs do not come through.. bit of a long way from Devon though !
Chix
Hussler
A French speaking Coach.. obvious but inspired my friend
Chix
Norfolk
A good point about Benjani... maybe it is to Hull then.. or Notts County !.. and Shorey medical is confirmed by contact in the club (still gotta pass it though) .. and I still don't know where Swaffham is, but I bet it's flat !
Chix
not really a 'secret' but niko is a done deal 100% - not sure on price, nothing going on with zaki and zenden, well at least neither are at the club at the moment, no bids for jamo either...
pompeyrug
Swaaaaffham's in Norfolk 'bouy' - you don't know what your missing if you've never been to Swaaaaffham market.
NorfolknBlue
Oh by the way Rothen is off to Rangers.
NorfolknBlue
if we were going to sign benji, whats to say we havn't already applied and got a work permit? Not everything is made public...
pompeycarpet
Apparently Levi doesn't want to have to spend money on James. So there trying the unsettle the player and force the clubs hand approach - again!
NorfolknBlue
another rumour: nelson is going in a swap deal for berlino the bear
pompeycarpet
jamo won't go anywhere. i don't think. But just out of intrest... why are we in for shorey?
pompeycarpet
niko 100%... that's perfect. maybe a bit more cash for us to spend? add it too our offer for zaki maybe?
pompeycarpet
1045 hrs
I've heard there are up to eight players at various places in the city.. I'm yet to be convinced Zaki is NOY coming .. and Zenden is 50/50 ... Rothen off to Rangers eh.. interesting...
Chix
But wouldn't the permit be rejected because Zimbabwe are outside the top 70(?), and have to go to appeal?
NorfolknBlue
Earlier, saw a 52 seater coach come off the Isle of Wight ferry at Fishbourne. On the side of the coach was SIDOM. Apparently down from London for the day to Fratton Park for mass medicals and the signing of contracts, a spokesman for the Society for Inexpensive Defensively Oriented Midfielders said, and are making a day of it on the Island. Hassan Yebda was too busy building a sand castle, running at it and diving into it with both feet to comment.
Et_tu_Pompeii
has that bhersea (trialist) signed yet ???? hope benjani comes back then maybe nugent off to a championship club , i reckon we should keep utaka he looks good playin on the left. Sad to see jame leave but i would love it for him not to go to spurs and kranjcar love to see redface gutted. Looks like there getting petrov anyway with bentley off to man city.
Football_Casual
ben haim and yebda will be officially confirmed soon - benji deal deemed as 'too risky' as he will be out until october...
pompeyrug
Krancjar passed his medical - no running test there then!
NorfolknBlue
Don't need Benji - got enough forwards now and anyway, we need a goal SCORER more than a headless chicken.

SIDOM .. that's really made me chuckle..
Chix
Latest on Nugent is that he carried on past Forest and has arrived back in his old parking slot at PNE.
NorfolknBlue

Bhasera has not signed yet.. might be worth a punt on the 'Place your bets article I reckon..oh and just heard that Nugent IS on his way back to the championship .. one of his former clubs.. anyway must PRESS ON I've lost my 'T'
Chix
so we now have no attacking midfielders??? we need some spark someone with skill who can unlock a defence..?? zenden who knows their mite be a few surprises yet.

Patience my man they will come.. Bopp is just learning to sign his name
Chix
Norfolk
Have you got the same contacts as me .. we posted Nuge to Preston at exactly the same time !
Chix
Zenden is not bound by the deadline being a free agent - maybe he is waiting for the dust to settle, and then choose his club?
NorfolknBlue
I'm operating in the Swaffham Triangle - similar to Bermuda, but drier and warmer!

CONFIRMED .. Nugent is at Preston.. but is it a loan or sale ??
Chix
James is desperate to leave? When did that happen? I'm still hanging in, hoping he stays - whereas someone buy Benji a satnav and quickly!
tracyc
Does this sound familiar: Clough said: "He tried to nutmeg somebody in his own half, away from home, in the 44th minute when we were 2-0 down, and then having lost the ball, he just stood still and watched it. That's why we replaced him."
NorfolknBlue
REALLY?

silly question (as im not from the UK)...what is the most reliable newspaper...i have read that the guardian says james is gone if he can get to tottenham by 5pm? :S (GOD i hope not)

Re Nuge to Preston.. I've had two texts from reliable (ish) people.. it makes sense in a way.. especially after his finishing recently..
Chix
This really is a crazy day for us! I knew I should have booked the day off work and wasted it watching Sky Sports News. Instead I am being paid to sit here and flick from page to page looking for transfer gossip. Never a good idea.
sneakay
Swanny
To be honest mate the answer is none.. the only really accurate website is the BBC but the report so far behind everybody else you've probably heard it before you read it .. I've a contact who works on the sports desk at a 'middle England' paper and he freely admits they invent storries for the sake of it ...
Chix
Re Nugent, not got a problem with that, I feel comfortable that we did give him a chance and he didn't take it - time to move on. Or back to where he came from I suppose.
tracyc
"I would like to apologise to the other readers for this false evidence and I urge anyone planning to head down to the A3 to cheer on Mr David James to not bother." lol

Chix
Norfolk
It's the calm before the storm .. ZAKI.. ZAKI.. ZAKI..
Chix
Benjani is on his way (trust me). Hull blew him out because of his wage demands but, because it's Pompey, he'll take a drop in salary to come back here. Work permit not an issue I'm told. Injury doubt but the fee is to be linked to appearances.
NinjaTim
Is this Jamie's Dad's way of getting Pompey a new stadium? Just move the coaching staff and entire squad to White Hart Lane . .
tracyc
Yes please to Zaki.
NorfolknBlue
"Portsmouth have made an official bid for Zaki, but Zamalek said they wanted to keep him and rejected any possibility of his exit," Nader Shawki said. "Portsmouth offered three different solutions for Zamalek to get Zaki. Although the Telegraph are just running this from his agent: "They offered 3 million or 2.5m plus 50 per cent of the next sale to buy him permanently. They also made a 500,000 loan offer, but Zamalek aren't ready to sell."
NorfolknBlue
zaki? even though pompey have claimed they havn't made a bid for him (yet)?
pompeycarpet
Ninja Tim
I'm not convinced we need him (especaily injured) but it would be a great lift for us fans nonetheless - A hero returns.. bit like Johnny Gordon all those years ago .. or so I'm told !

wow I managed to double post with 10 other posts inbetween. ha ha. Managed to find a stream of SSN if anyone is at work and wants to be kept in the loop.

"slow but great vision" Havn't we just sold someone like that for 2 million?
pompeycarpet
Carpet
So you DIDN'T fall into my trap then.. Be nice thought wouldn't it .. Zaki I mean !
Chix
nobody wants him I'd rather have him than not have him... in fact, I'd basicly just like him to stay. lazy or not.
pompeycarpet
Chix It would be brilliant to have zaki - I really think that he is exactly what we need, with dindane and piq supporting him - then utaka off the bench. We would have one of the best forward line ups in the league!
pompeycarpet
As requested Rugster: http://www.justin.tv/vip_tv_1

cheers - we cannot sign benji as any deal can only be a loan deal...

jamo still at the training ground - so 'looking good' for him staying?
pompeyrug
Thanks for the link Sneaks - I got on there just as they were saying Jamo arrived at the training ground this morning and hasn't left yet. Shorey on his way for a medical (shorey not)

Benjani: Not going to Hull. It's between us and Notts County but we'll only bid for him if Zaki deal doesn't happen.

Ben Haim has appeared a bit error-prone in the past. Yebda is another member for SIDOM. Guess where their AGM will be this year?

It appears that everytime i refresh my page, the last post appears again. I would suggest that no-one uses the F5 key anymore this afternoon. Is it true that Yabba Dabba Do is ANOTHER DF Midfielder only capable of passing 5 yards left, right or backwards?

Steve Bruce is sniffing round Jamo now......only a few more hours to hold onto him!!!
Fratton del Sol
Apparently Nugent has only just left the training ground according to SKY.

It looks like I might have been guilty of the F5 repeats, sneaks. I guess we need to navigate away from the page and return to refresh then? Tom Kilbey has gone to the daggers for a month.

Central or wide creativity, Chix? If we don't have to accomodate Nico, maybe we could try 4-4-2... or maybe it's my turn to be the foolish one.
wellyit
With less than 4 hours, do you think we will hang on to Jamo now? Nugget might have just been driving home after training.

Nugent & Wilson Gossip
Now .. I have it on good authority that Nugent and Wilson WILL be split up.. apparently so I have heard and read on a toilet wall and nobody who knows these people told me this at all (and all other disclaimers) .. Marc has a little problem when it comes to ..erm... the beer.. so much so that his girlfriend is sick of it and has been hanging around a certain mate of Nugents who has a surname a bit like a horse race.. anyway they were introduced by none other than Mr Nugent.. Now it you don't know who Marc's girlfriend is it makes no odds .. (but you can ask me) .. Now this story also holds (to an extent) with what David Nugents Dad told me about Portugal.. in as much as it wasn't a fight .. it was an attack! .. um interesting eh.. but I may have just made this little lot up .. or not
Chix
i do not want to tempt fate but jamo is going to have to go some now if he is going to get anywhere to complete a move away?
pompeyrug
Tracy
I would have thought that Jamo is safe now .. realistically where could he go and get a medical and sign the deed in three and a half hours ... ?? - But I too wish Sky would shut up ... 'The baskets' (lol)

Chix, don't count your chickens with Jamo. Apparently Sandra completed the medical in her spare bedroom at Sandbanks last night?

The answer to your question is the lovely Chelsea White - Take off 'safe search' on google images and look her up .. or buy last weeks Zoo magzine..

Well we all know Sandra's husband's wife (eh?) has a better footballing brain than him.. well that is what he has said previously .. but I had no idea she could perfom medical.. personally I'd prefer his daughter-in-law.. but she dress her children in Scummers chirts so couldn't have that !

Chix
Tracy
Nah .. Jamo won't make WHL now (or will he?) but interesting about Ashdown.. not surprozed to be honest .. he's been really eft out in the cold at Pompey with the emergence of Begovic and the sgning of that other bloke
Chix
Why would Jamo have to go to WHL? I thought they had a branch office at our training ground.
wellyit
Chix, surprised Wilson can concentrate on his game! As for crapknapp's daughter in law, then you'd have to give it a go! I'm guessing there's no more major surprises for today then, Shorey and Williamson I guess might be yesses, Jamo who knows. Storrie could be having a glass of stella by 4pm with his feet up.
bluedr
Williamson bid accepted - 3M
NorfolknBlue
O'Hara has told the Sky reporter at the training ground that Zidane is on his way!
NorfolknBlue
I see that in a poll on Watford's Vital page, they would like Nuge in exchange for Williamson.
wellyit
Norfolk
Zidane?.. bring on the head butt man. A great partner for Michael Brown
Chix
The trouble with that SSN link is that I get transfixed by all the complete numpties that put completely idiotic comments on there. I've managed to breakaway and get back to the sanity of Vital.

Wellyit
Nugent for Williamson.. Is that a good move? 3m for Nugent .. assuming Williamson fee is 3m.. I'd take it .. I think
Chix
Sky reporting that we have denied making any approach for Zaki, and there is no way we will be signing him.
NorfolknBlue
Tracy
Sanity .. I was A Lad in Sane a long time about Tracy.. Welcome back .. You know where the truth lies and the debate is best ..
Chix
Yeah - I'd take Williamson for Nugent.
tracyc
Norfolk
Well ever Pompey are telling Porkies or Zaki's agent is ... umm lesser of two evils .. who do you believe?
Chix
sanity? vital? well theres a 1st for everything i suppose ;D
pompeym@
Chix/Norfolk Zaki's agent???
bluedr
williamson a big gamble at 3million?? any news on the krankjar fee or replacement?
pompeyhussler
guys, do not forget that there are also other threads releated to the signings we have made/hope to...of course these threads are fantastic but do not forget the articles about signings confirmed :-)
pompeyrug
Oh but guys, you have to see it to believe it! It makes the comments on the bottom of the News website articles look like reasoned argument.
tracyc
I think I believe the club on Zaki, maybe. I'll let you know at 17.10.
NorfolknBlue
bentleys not going to city does that mean pompey mite of pulled off a deal with twitch about signing bentley.. me thinks not
pompeyhussler
i believe my mum...and she says he ain't coming....although i recon poor old o'hara may have zidane confused with zaki...
Bowlsey
haha we can always dream hussler
pompeym@
if we're not getting Zaki, does that mean we'll go for benjani?
footy_fans
Hussler
Kranjcar still not officially confirmed.. Is there a problem.. he passed the medical three hours ago ? .. but Kranjcar for Bentley is that a good deal?
Chix
Rug
Spot on mate - I'll be over myself in a mo..
Chix
Footy_fans
Still not giving up on Benjani then ?
Chix
Bentley would be a good deal, but is there time now? I don't think anything will happen with Zaki.
tracyc
Loving the idea of kranjcar for Bentley but can't quite see it. Oooh, Krajkar fee has gone back up to 3m.
sneakay
Surely Bentley's wages would prevent any business. Williamson for Nugent seems fair if we haven't had a better offer and I think we are getting to the point where we could do with losing one or two. Does the African Cup take place after the January window opens?
wellyit
Tracy
Too late to do anything with Bentley I fear?
Chix
Anyone give me an update on hadji Aissa ???? hope he signs along with bhersea. WHERE ARE THE OTHERS ???
Football_Casual
Sneakay
As you know I'm not lover of Donna Kranjcar but even 3m does seem to be taking the Michael a little - Surely we should have at least got 5m it's not llike it the last window before his contract is up is it ?
Chix
the world cups this summer and bentley may be thinking that he needs to play all season so what better place than fratton park. maybe james krankjar and 3million will get him and to pesuade him to join put in a 15million release fee..
pompeyhussler
The Kranjcar fee probably has something to do with the fees for O'Hara and KPB. Looks like the Zaki deal is all but dead, and although I love the guy I hope we don't sign Benjani. Williamson deal to be the last?
stillthewhizz
the 3m for donna's got to be on top of what we owe for KPB surely chix?
pompeym@
i still maintain that the deal with spurs for kranjcar must include writing off what we owe them for boateng and the loan for o'hara...
pompeyrug
Why's it too late for Bentley Chix? Surely he can just drive down to FP...on second thoughts maybe not!
Squee
did storey say that he would never deal with spurs again after the crouch deal.. getting him for 3million less. surley harry has tapped up another player... and someone must of bid more than 3million for him.
pompeyhussler
what tha?? this is great... its been over 12 months since we have witnessed such extreme gossip! Bentley :)
nodster
Benjani update - he's now on the M3, but his car has broken down at the Winchester junction, and he's got no breakdown cover! He's left his chequebook at home too, so he may be quite some time! I'm well sad about Krunchie :-(
PFCGino
Loving the idea of kranjcar for Bentley but can't quite see it. Oooh, Krajkar fee has gone back up to 3m.
sneakay
breaking news bentleys got his own driver so all he needs now is a map to fratton.
pompeyhussler
well man city signed him a few hours after the last deadline.. so he's alright
nodster
bluedr - if you are still wondering about Marc Wilson's GF that caused the 'attack' then think about the team at the top of the league combined with Pompey's favourite colour of shorts. Bear in mind though that she was only born in 1990 so pics you may see of her are of an early age.
Anyway back to the footie. seems to be a little slow this hour with not much happening. If Jamo is still around come 15:00 I think we will be safe to keep him.
sneakay
my mate cuts bushes on eastern road, and has just seen bentley crash into a lamp post outside harvester then quickly change places with his mate in the pasanger seat.
pompeyhussler

stillthewhizz
we could make shoreys loan perminant then sign bentley on loan!!! theres a thought....
pompeyhussler
who replaces krankjar then..
pompeyhussler
Would love bentley down at fratton . Hope we get benjani as zaki aint coming and williamson for back up , shorey to come , assia to replace niko and bhersea for the future. P.S ON THE QUAY THEY SAY WE NEED A NEW GOALKEEPER , CENTRE BACK , MID AND STRIKER. STILL NEED MORE PLAYERS !!!!!!!
Football_Casual
rather glad Zaki couldnt move, we dont need another troublesome striker.. well thats if Nuge stays..
nodster
I'm pretty sure that we can't take two loans from the same English club, hussler.

BREAKING NEWS POMPEY SIGN RIBERY FOR 45MILLION

Marlon Harewood, anyone?

well husssler i actually saw us linked to baptista a while back so not too far off XD
pompeym@
We do not want Bentley, this is the idiot who couldn't be bothered to turn up to play for his country!
bluedr
Well its looking like Twitchy won't get any more of our players this window . . . but you never know with him, do you, he pulls deals out of hats on transfer windows.
tracyc
Whizz
Williamson & Shorey I would have thought .. still just under two hours to go
Chix
Squee
Hi ya.. good to hear from you Bentley going to Man City is now back on apparently.. wow .. more twists and turns than a twisty and turny thing
Chix
Casual
I agree we do still need more player.. we are still lacking a creative midfielder and a out and out goalscorer .. I'm happy but need to be happier
Chix
Wellyit
One loan per loaning club is correct as you state
Chix
is it true you can only play 4 loaned player's a match?
pompeym@
Gino
As sad as you are about Kranjcar .. I am happy
Chix
Chixy, Richie has signed on loan for Notts County apparently.
bluedr
I'm quite happy about Kranjcar, he is talented, but we've never seen the best of him at FP, I expect we will now at WHL - annoying but the way it goes sometimes. Wondering why we haven't heard that the deal is finalised yet though.
tracyc
Breaking News
Williamson In ... Ritchie Out (on Loan .. Confirmed
Chix
Notts County's OS have confirmed his loan until Christmas.
wellyit
SSN are saying Williamson is done, not on the OS yet.
tracyc
Tracy
I agree the Kranjcar situation is a little strange I must admit .. nothing official on either site but Sky are claiming its a done deal ..very odd
Chix
Can't comment on Williamson, know nothing about him...
pentonpompey
Go on Sully, one last under the Radar deal to keep us happy and to try and improve attendances at FP this season.
bluedr
Its all gone a bit quiet about Shorey?
tracyc
I think something will happen that no-one is expecting... bentley won't happen, zaki won't happen, benji won't happen. So I'm expecting the unexpected... if that makes sense?
pompeycarpet
Probably in the queue outside the physio's office tracyc?
bluedr
i hope so cause we got an hour to go and theres nothing happening...
pompeym@
I'm not at all disappointed in the least but I must admit I expected more than 2 or is it 3 or is it 4 players in today .. just over an hour to go and an 'unexpected' deal would be fun.. Viduka ?
Chix
Yebda, Ben Haim, Williamson and Shorey (tbc) is that it today. Disappointed we haven't got one more striker in given Richie leaving, Kanu?, Nugent and Uslacker
bluedr
Viduka...No thanks + his wages will be way too high for us.
pentonpompey
you do have to look at our strikers though... we do have a lot of them! Utaka, dindane, piq, smith, kanu, nugent... who have i forgotten?
pompeycarpet
Weird isn't it, we sign 3 possibly 4 today and yet some how we feel slightly deflated...it's a strange old World!
pentonpompey
Penton
I was joking ..honest
Chix
i hear that zheng zhi is signing for celtic - a free agent that i reckon we should have moved for, commercially as well as football wise he would have been a winner...
pompeyrug
Utaka, Dindane and Kanu, are these all liable for ANC in Jan?
bluedr
Carpet
We still don't have a natural 'top division' goal scorer
Chix
Carpet
sorry mate meant to say I agree with you. Ohh a problem with Shorey .. and Benjani STILL to go to Notts County
Chix
Shorey hit a snag apparently.
NorfolknBlue
oh -msounds like Shorey deal could be off.
tracyc
Shorey loan move collapsed?? Does that suddenly open the door to a Benji or bentley loan instead?
sneakay
bluedr dunno if Kanu will still be with us in Jan, but Mokoena will too.
tracyc
Shorey's hit a snag, Bentleys hit a lamp post...step forward Benjani!
bluedr
because we lost our best and most creative player for 3m
pompeyhussler
Benjani on loan to Notts COunty I'm hearing.. despite almost going to Hull

Weird isn't it, we sign 3 possibly 4 today and yet some how we feel slightly deflated...it's a strange old World!

Just a last minute suprise for a creative player who wants to actually run around, can score goals and puts decent crosses in, a bit like Ronaldo I suppose ha ha. That's all I want. Not asking for much.

Bentley? is that what Jamo's driving to White Hart Lane?

Been a bit dissapointing unless we have not announced everything

Williamson confirmed apparently on a 4 year deal.

Don't forget fellas Bashera & Zenden are unattached therefore do not have to go through today... I did expect Aissa though
Chix
If you want funnies, a friend of mine has just said that Redknapp has been on the phone to the FA asking for special dispensation as David James was caught in traffic to WHL and would not get the deal in time for 5pm. Ha Ha (Sh*t I hope he is joking!!)

hmm well bit of a downer really, so much for 7 players today but tbh i don't think i ever truely believed that, 4 players in 3 minutes mr storrie come on

no more signings then :/ . I wanted a few more in maybe someone to replace krankcar zenden wont replace him at all.
Football_Casual
what has kranjcar done this season tho? how can we miss nothing...
i think people are forgetting that we have boateng and o'hara to come into the midfield. for me, we were 'accommdating' and 'carrying' him, so we could not continue to do so.
pompeyrug
Please please please sign a replacement for Kranchy......
Fratton del Sol
