Pompey need to sign a striker during the transfer window! Not my vote, yours – although these findings from pompeyrug’s poll are thoughts that I completely share.

It was no great surprise that a striker and a right winger topped our list of most wanted, these are clearly areas that we do need to strengthen, and have since last summer – without doubt as far as the striker situation goes.

If we get to the end of this month without strengthening these two areas I will not only be surprised but will be bitterly disappointed…

Why the ‘goalkeeper’ area picked up such a high amount – even though it was still low – I cannot understand? England’s no.1 David James isn’t too shabby is he, and his deputies Jamie Ashdown and Asmir Begovic are not too bad either are they!

What the poll asked – Where do we most need to strengthen out squad during the sales?

How you voted – Striker 58%, Right midfield/wing 31%, Goalkeeper 4%, Left midfield/wing 3%, Central midfield 2%, Central defence 1%, Right back 1%, Left back 0%

Current Poll – Business can now begin again and areas that are needing looking at can be serviced – hopefully…

We have highlighted the areas that need looking at, and hopefully they will be looked at but how many players will we sign this month – this is what eastneydave wants to know with this – ‘how many players will Pompey bring in during the transfer window?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.
