The ‘rumours’ seem to be slowing down now, if this a good or bad thing – is this a calm before the storm or will the storm come as more time passes and few arrive?!

One thing that we do know if that Steve Cotterill does need to make signings and CSI need to allow him to do so!

We also know that he was at the England U21 friendly with Norway at the weekend.

What we do not know is who was he ‘casting his eye’ over?

The Sun ‘claims’ this to be Danny Rose

Now this would not be a surprise, we tried to bring him in last season before he joined Bristol City on loan – eventually returning to Spurs and, maybe surprisingly, ending the season in the Spurs side.

Its ‘said’ that we want to bring him in on loan this season?

Yep, I would happily have Rose come to Pompey on loan, we could use him at left back or in midfield and he has enough quality about him to be more than successful – get it done and bring him in!

The major problem with bringing Rose to Fratton is I cannot see Spurs dealing with us…

Remember the whole Asmir Begovic saga!

This has rumbled on and on for ages and some ‘harsh’ words exchanged about exactly what the score is with this ‘sell-on’ fee – as I understand it this has still not be sorted out and would go to the courts to decide?

To be fair we have had a decent relationship with Spurs, before and after Harry Redknapp left to join them, with plenty of players going both ways – not always on the best of terms mind – so ‘if’ the Begovic situation is sorted out then there is every chance a deal could be done, afterall Redknapp and Cotterill are friends, so I suspect this would help his cause.

Whatever is happening we need to start to see arrivals!

I am surprised that those ‘waiting in the wings’ for the takeover to go through have not come in yet…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
