What happened on Friday with Pompey and the media? Not a lot really but lets take a look.
Harry Redknapp’s usual ‘I would like him at Pompey’ kind of thing that he says, this time in relation to Claude Makelele was taken as meaning Pompey will be making a £2million move for him according to the Mirror. This was covered in full by Vital Pompey in this article Makelele talk returns.
Gary O’Neil spoke to The News to confirm that he wants to stay here with Pompey for the long term – 10 years in fact, so he has no intention of moving on. Again this was covered in full on Vital Pompey in this article O’Neil says he’s going nowhere.
For the simple reason there was nothing else – other than the above recycled and rehashed – the thing that really caught my eye was the news that BBC broke that Djibril Cisse will be ‘snubbing’ Pompey – among others – to sign for Marseille, so he is another we can cross off the list.
With Liverpool insisting Cisse will not be going out on loan again and a permanent move away is his only way out of his ‘Liverpool nightmare’, he will be going back to Marseille – where he was on loan last season.
The French international has his knockers but could have been worth a go, so if he would have been willing to abandon his champions league wishes – something Marseille can give him – my thinking is he would have been worth a punt, but there you go he wont so we wont get him.
I will not lose too much sleep over not getting him though.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
