PompeyFcMad looks ahead to what he sees as being a ‘big week’ ahead for Pompey, a week that needs to see some developments made on the transfer front.
With the 4-0 loss to Benfica and 2-0 loss to Vitoria SC, Pompey aren’t looking good for the new season.
This week is a massive week for Pompey, it’s the week leading up to the last pre-season game and last chance to see any new players play for the blues before the season. Now we do have a ‘whole month’ to sign new players but the season only starts in 13 days with a home game against Fulham.
Also people may be saying with have two weeks to sign up some players, however if we sign players after the Rangers game, there is no way of seeing how they we perform for the blues before that first premiership game.
The likes of Zaki, Ghilas, Viduka, Hunt, Benjani, Nikola Kalinic, Frederic Piquionne and Poulsen have been linked with Pompey over the last few weeks and some have been reported to be very close to signing, with Zaki saying he will be at Fratton Park in the next 48 hours and Viduka close to signing a one year deal with Pompey. Pompey need to sign these players this week, not next week, where it could be too late for the likes of Kalinic (who maybe going to Blackburn).
Sort it out Pompey and sign players soon and quickly, I understand that it’s a very stressful time at the club and that it’s hard to be working for Pompey, but the solution is to sign players that are good and can play football. Please Pompey don’t leave it too late otherwise by January transfer window, we could be bottom of the league and still have the same squad as we did in Portugal.
