Reports in the Daily Mirror today are claiming that Pompey are interested in making a £1.5m move for West Brom captain Paul Robinson this summer.

He is very much in the mould of Hermann Hreidarsson in as much that he is also tough tackling left back, but for me, although he a few years younger at 29 he would still not be that marked improvement that we should be looking for in a new left back – not that this is even an area of the highest priority to be honest.

Robinson is a decent defender and if we did move for him we would get a player that is 100% committed 100% of the time, which is something we love at Pompey but without being harsh he is hardly that ‘top quality player’ type that we have been told would arrive this summer is he…

The same paper has again linked us with Pascal Chimbonda, with it claimed he has been told he has no future with Spurs, so we are now involved in a ‘tug of war’ with Villa for him.

I am still undecided on the fella to tell the truth, but if Villa won this tug of war I do not think I would be overcome with grief or disappointment at missing out on him if I am completely honest.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
