The transfer window might have closed earlier this month, but this didn’t mean all transfer dealings were done and dusted, which was proven today when Pompey dipped into the market once more.

With loan transfers permitted, Pompey made the most of such an opportunity by adding Millwall’s Ben Thompson to the squad – he’s come to Fratton Park for the remainder of the season. But the Lions can recall him.
Thompson, 22, can’t wait to get up and running.

In all honesty, I couldn’t say I know too much about him. However, I know enough to feel he’ll be a very good addition to the squad at League One level. I reckon, certainly hope, all being well, Thompson will add another positive option from midfield, which can see all benefit – as much as I would always sooner us using our own players as opposed to blooding those from other clubs.
A number of Millwall fans feel we’ve signed a goodun.
You lot have signed a class young midfielder. Will be a good player for us in the future. Was one of the main reasons we got promoted even when he was so young. Will shine under jackett! Millwall links etc

Give him a couple of games and he’ll be up to speed. Will be surprised if he’s not successful. Your supporters should like him.

Class signing for you

Sounds positive, doesn’t it!
Whatever the Lions fans think, or what we do, as ever we have to go with the “in Kenny we trust” approach, right? The boss knows what he’s doing and Thompson’s arrival ought to allow us to play some good footie.
PLAY UP POMPEY
