Chew The Fat With Chix - July 21st

Chew The Fat With Chix - July 21st
It's nearly the end of the week so it must mean another edition of 'Chew The Fat'

As always there are loads of topics to discuss during this evenings debate and as is the norm I'll be live and on line only on Vital Pompey from approx. 7:30 seeking your views and giving my opinion on the hot topics of the week.

I'll chat about anything Pompey however tenuous, so just toss in the subject you want to discuss and we will take it from there.

But to get you thinking, how about..

The Old School Tie - There was speculation earlier in the week that a certain Matty Taylor was being linked with us .. before he flew bacck from tour to sign for West Ham that was... and with Benjani yet to sign a one year deal with Blackburn and Sol Campbell without a club, that got me thinking.

Which Pompey old-boy from the past five years or so would you like to see back at Fratton Park? Johnson or Defoe perhaps or what about Diarra or Diop - Forget the fact they are not available I just want your view on who you would recommend if money and contracts were not an option and CSI were going to grant you one wish.

Championship Manager - So the season is very nearly upon us and although we may see a couple of additions to the squad before we kick-off at the Riverside in just over a fortnight what we have now is going to be the basis of what we start with .. So if you were Cotterill who would you start with against Boro .. and what positions would you make a priority to strengthen as soon as possible

Top Six - Yep it is 'silly season' again and all and sundry chirp up with where they think their club can finish at the end of the season - I want to know where you think Pompey will end up and whether you would be happy with that ?

Top two, top six, top ten perhaps .. What do you think and what do you hope for ?

Those are just a few ideas for discussion, but as I say every week ... It's your agenda and anything goes!

Those that have taken part in any of the previous editions of 'Chew The Fat' will no doubt testify that a lively discussion is always had by all.

So why not join in with me, 'on the spot' to respond to your thoughts, comments and opinions on the issues of the week, hopefully with a bit of fun, banter, controversy and maybe even one of my many humorous anecdotes or a quiz thrown in for good measure.

Come on log on @ 7:30 and share your views only on Vital Pompey

Alternatively, if you are unable to join in tonight but want to add to the debate why not throw in your thoughts right now and I'll respond to them throughout the evening.

Finally, does anybody want to hazard a guess at the former Pompey player in the title picture ?

Not sure on the pic Chix, I think it might be someone with the initials RD, but like I said, not confident.

Regarding a returning player, there is no secret that I was a massive fan of the "Boub", Mr. Diop, despite the fact he was quite useless and cost me a lot of money on bets. But at the moment, we need a goalscorer, so I'd have to bite my tongue and want that little parasite Defoe here. It actually pains me to say that, but that's the sort of player we need (but thankfully it won't happen).

Another topic I'd like to throw into the cauldron (despite the fact that I won't be around to watch it bubble) is the very recent breaking news that only 5 subs will be named in the Football League this season. I think this gives us an advantage seen as we've been playing by this rule voluntarily for a whole season. I'm all for the idea, but I imagine those bigger clubs with huge squads won't be too pleased. What do you think?

Paul & Moley
You are correct .. The song goes..
When the ball hits our goal
It's not Sherar or Cole

He's the ***** at the back
Who got Houllier the sack 
That's Traore..
