Continuing the entertainment theme - Chix asks which player we have 'previously been linked with could have made an impact

Here`s what we could have won!

Well we have been speculating for a few weeks now and been linked to loads of players, but just before this particular transfer window slams shut let's that a look at some of the players who we have been linked with (however tenuously) over the past year or so and ask which players from the list (or otherwise) would have made a real impact at Fratton Park

Every name on the list (and that's only a quarter of them) have been linked to Pompey in past 18 months.. but of course must of them were indeed newspaper 'stories' but a few were actually reported as done deals !!

What about Geovanni, who we had on loan one summer before Man City snapped him up and then went to Hull.

Great music?! Buggered if I can remember her name. She left before I had a chance to ask. Oh Happy Days!

saviola would have been a fantastic signing - problem is he would have been gone by now as it would have only been a loan deal last season... infact i suspect most of those that would have been of most benefit to us would be on their way out now?

still think that hunt would have done a job this season as would dos santos - but there you go...

Yeah Giovanni.. we had him and that Italian guy (who left Man City due to homesickness) both at the same time.. we lost out on both and THEN lost Benjani too .. Oh I don't think I like Man City !

Dos Santos I would have love but didn't Adams declare him unfit at the last minute and then buy Mullins ? I wasn't keen on Saviola at the time but looking back we could have done with him last season.. would have helped Crouchy a bit after Defoe went !

well, and i think i said this to you before, i still feel that we had no intention of bringing in dos santos as we could not afford him - the 'unfit' talk was a smokescreen as he then went on loan to ipswich...

You did indeed my friend.. you did indeed... Personally I would have liked Barnetta but Jamie's Dad just could not prize him away.. Still.. I reckon he'd have been sold by now anyway !

Poulsen did look promising didn't he ..and I am very surprsed we didn't sign Mensah .. especially knowing Distin was probably on his wage .. Wages considered too high I reckon
