According to a comment that I sae this morning it was being said that News columnist Neil Allen has ‘Tweeted’ that Pompey had seen the latest offer for Martin Paterson rejected?
This has now been backed up, at least with an article, in The News today…
This would, by all accounts, make at least 3 rejected offers for the Burnley man now over more than a months worth of stalking!
Clearly now it is time to move on, abandon the pursuit of Paterson and make up for lost time by looking elsewhere.
On the face of it we have now ‘wasted’ around 6-weeks with our constant pursuit of a player that Burnley clearly have no intention of selling…
Whilst we are in desperate need of a striker part of me would be relieved that our advances have seemingly failed for the Northern Ireland international.
I say this as spending that type of money on a player, albeit with a proven record at this level, with his injury record in recent seasons – well, spending that type of money on any players given our recent history really! – did not sit that well with me.
It is just frustrating that we seem to have wasted so much time ‘courting’ him…
PLAY UP POMPEY!
