As always how this, or any other deal, is going to be made is anybodies guess but Pascal Chimbonda is the latest name to appear on the Pompey radar.

The 30-year-old has experience behind him, and to be fair is a decent defender – one that can play left, right or in the middle of the back four, so is versatile. Lets say that the former French international did sign for Pompey though, methinks this would be as our new right back…

One thing that The Mail seems to be forgetting is the man that has previously wanted to sign Chimbonda for Pompey, according to previous ‘reports’, is now his manager at Spurs!

Experience and, like I say, an amount of quality suits me but as a person, what I know about him – which to be fair is only what the media say – I am not sure that I like him and to me he just seems like an overpaid mercenary, then again aren’t most of the footballers these days…

Another name, and another former French international, being ‘linked’ with Pompey today is Jerome Rothen.

The PSG winger is free to leave the French club and had been linked with Blackburn, but Pompey are now ‘said’ to be looking to step in and snatch the 31-year-old winger away?

The thing that I must say is giving me more of a positive outlook on the way things are going is, despite most ‘reports’ being nothing more than ‘rumour’, for us to be being ‘linked’ to as many players as we are must mean that things are still progressing ok with the takeover and players, whoever is doing this, are being ‘sounded out’.

What do you reckon guys, ‘if’ there was any truth to this would you like to see Chimbonda and/or Rothen pitch up at Fratton this season?

PLAY UP POMPEY!
