Until it happens I will not believe it but ‘reports’ today claim that Younes Kaboul and Nicky Shorey will soon complete their moves to Pompey as Harry Redknapp looks to complete his summer transfers…

With so many rumours, and then counter rumours – with many contradictory – it makes it hard to know what to believe, but if we could make these transfers happen this week before the charity shield I would be more than happy.

That said – as much as I would like these deals to happen – at the end of the day, much as my cousin and I discussed yesterday when we chatted if we did not bring in anyone else this summer, so long as the vast majority stayed at put at Fratton on the whole we would be happy with our lot. The biggest plus would be a left sided midfielder, which I think after a lot of thinking is actually what we need more than anything as we really are down to the ‘bare bones’ here, but if we could not bring in anyone else now we would be content…

Look at it this way, despite the departure of Sulley Muntari you cannot question that we have a better squad than we did this time last year, and we are arguably – although some might not agree – stronger now than we were at the end of last season.

In hindsight I think that we could have really done without the ‘promises’ that where made at the start of the summer as to who would and would not arrive and the negativity coming from Redknapp – as much as I love the fella – because then I do not think we would be that unhappy at all, and rightly so…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
