Pompey transfer talk
LuaLua was allegedly going to hand in a transfer request on the morning that the Pompey offices were raided.
Harry had already had an apparently heated discussion regarding Lua's late arrival for training. Lua was told that Pompey 'minds' were elsewhere. Wigan and West Ham are apparently interested.
Matt Taylor is the subject of interest to 4 Premiership sides. As always, Liverpool, Spurs and Fulham among them. However, one or two things give rise to possible reasons for this window being a little different.
Firstly, We are actively in the hunt for another striker and or wide man. This is possibly why both us, and Lua are prepared to listen to offers. We know we can reel in some sort of fee to offset our outlay this close season, and Lua knows another season is going to go by without him being an automatic choice.
Matty is in a similar position I feel, I'm prepared to be shouted down, but I don't think Matty will be a first choice for us this season. The Herminator and Muntari will I imagine occupy the two automatic choices on the left side, and if not, I can't see Matt replacing Sulley in midfield. Why else would we break our transfer record?
One other thing is that Matt is a well known Spuds fan, and a move from them is likely to be too tempting.
Some thinning of the squad is needed, but who?
One piece of buying news is that we are apparently in for LUKE YOUNG of Charlton. Can anyone explain why we need another right back? I appreciate that he is an accomplished defender, but are we not already served well enough in that department?
Give me your opinions on these and any other movement you fear or indeed would like to see, seeing that, even in these heady times we have to balance the books.
