You always get some ‘strange’ links during the transfer windows but quite what the reasoning of this one – Bernard Mendy to Pompey – offered up by setanta sports on behalf of L’Equipe is I am not sure? More to the point what the point actually would be is beyond me…

I remember the defender when he was at Bolton, and if I recall correctly he did not exactly ‘impress’ then, now he cannot get back into the Paris St Germain side. He is out of contract in the summer and is being linked with a move to Celtic, but the French club might want to cash in on him now – but it wont see him come here.

For one thing we do not need a defender, and for another we certainly do not need a right back! We have Glen Johnson as first choice, he is backed up by Lauren, Noe Pamarot and at a push Djimi Traore and Martin Cranie, we even have Linvoy Primus – when fit – so there is no need whatsoever for a right back is there.

He can play in central defence I believe, but let the fella go to Fulham, who are also linked with him. We need a striker, a right sided midfielder/winger and probably a creative influence in the midfield, not another right back, or even a defender full stop.

Harry Redknapp has just yesterday complimented the strength of our defence so why this ‘link’ has appeared I am not quite sure, I think we might have been ‘tentatively linked’ in the summer, so maybe – and probably the only reason – this is why we are being credited with an interest again…
