After what Harry Redknapp said in The News is looks as though Marlon Harewood could be one of Pompey’s main striking targets after all.

‘I’ve been keeping an eye on Marlon. I like him – he’s strong, quick and powerful.

‘He’s a real handful on his day and most of all, can definitely get you goals in the Premier League. If he could get 15 goals, he’d be a snip.’

Harewood is a good footballer, but with respect to him – and should he become a Pompey player I will obviously back him – he is not really the name we have been hoping for, or even expecting all summer is he?

We seem to be ‘linked’ with striker after striker but appear to be missing out due to our reluctance to pay big money. Fair enough, you do not pay over the odds but you have to pay what you have to pay in order to get a player capable of scoring goals!

The £5million that is being spoken about for Harewood is – if I am honest – not that good a value for money is it? I am not sure what he would bring us that Benjani doesn’t already – maybe a few more goals?

But if he did arrive so long as another striker followed – as they would have to if we want a lot of goals – then things would be looking brighter.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
