It is being reported that Pompey are facing ‘a double transfer snub’ from Richard Dunne and Zoltan Gera.

Dunne seemed certain to leave Citeh, but now looks as though he will stay with them following the appointment of Mark Hughes. They may have a new manager but I suspect that the thoughts and believes of their megalomaniac owner will remain the same, so little will change unless Hughes meets his quite frankly over ambitious aims…

It was thought yesterday that Gera was closing in on a free to Fratton but it is today said that the West Brom man has decided to do a ‘Diomansy Kamara‘ and sees Fulham as a better option?

Ah well, if this happens I am sure we will get over it!

At the end of the day we will be ‘linked’ to a lot of players, some will sign dozens and dozens of others will not – if they want to come here great, if not so be it we move on and find other players, its quite simple really isn’t it!

==========

Whereas The Sun is claiming that we are still ‘confident’ of signing Shaun Wright-Phillips – for a fee of £8m.

He himself might prefer to wait and see what his Chelski future holds before he moves, but his old man Ian Wright remains convinced that he should make the move away from Chelski, with him hailing the example of Jermain Defoe as one that he could look to follow…

==========

Also, and to round off this little lot there is ‘yet more talk’ about Dave Nugent… this time it is apparently Stoke that are again back in for him.

He rejected a loan to them last season but the claims are that £4m has been offered for him this time round.

Lets just wait and see eh – one thing that I do know is I am getting pretty fed up with the speculation surrounding him once again, but has this ever really left him since the minute he signed…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
