It never ceases to amaze me, a paper can say one thing in one paragraph, but in the other something that seems to ‘totally contradict’ everything else is said!

Yesterday evening, and early today, The News of the World seems to have gone into ‘overdrive’ with Pompey related stories – A LOT seem nothing more than rehashed and reused versions of previous events, mainly previous events they ran anyway…

The most ‘interesting’ thing of all was, they say – and again not exactly ‘new news’ is it? – the premier league will be docking £4m from a scheduled £10m TV money payout to pay off debts we owe, which will ‘leave us seriously struggling financially’, yet in the next breath they are saying we are planning a ‘double swoop’ for Loic Remy and Hatem Ben Arfa.

You could not make it up could you, well maybe you could…

‘Apparently’ French international Remy is available for £6m from Nice with ‘bad boy’ fellow international Ben Arfa, funnily enough a player that I was talking about with a friend last night – totally unrelated as I had not even heard about these ‘reports’ – available for loan from Marseille with the option of a ‘permanent move in the summer.’

The NOTW is ‘saying’ that Avram Grant is using his ‘extensive knowledge of the European transfer market to Hart,’ with these just a couple of the names shared.

As always, I think our thinking will be ‘lets wait and see’…

Many of us have started thinking over the past few days how things were ‘too quiet’, is this a worrying thing or a good sign that ‘less talk and more action’ is actually happening?

Hopefully all will be revealed soon, and in a positive light! That said, this is Pompey we are talking about…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
