I voted 4...

It is not going as I wished for and thought we were going to work this summer.

Nigel Reo Coker

Steve Mandanda (as Le Havre almost throwing at us)

? (Luke Young)


If this is true then I would be hugely disappointed...hugely. Before the transfer window opened I believed we would buy 7-8 players of true quality. Now when it is going so slow and we´re really being outrunned by the most I fear we will lose out on our main targets and we have to settle, as usual, for second best.

Nothing wrong with NRC or Luke Young...but they doesnt represent the class I was led to believe we would go for...and neither what I believe myself would give us a ticket to Europe. It is just not good enough...

I can say that I wish I´ll be proven wrong...and by far too...

Do people think we need a huge number of players in? i for one think we would be fine if no one else left and we just brought in a rb, rm and a st,

for each position we'd have

gk - sorensen/taylor

rb - new player/delaney/mellberg

cb - mellberg/laursen/cahill/ridgewell

lb - bouma/barry

rm - new player/young/maloney

cm - nrc/barry/petrov/gardner/osbourne

lm - young/barry/berger/maloney

st - new player/carew/gabby/moore

We'd have a decent starting 11 and decent back up. We'd also have options as we have players who can play in a number of positions.

I don't think the squad is as bad or as weak as some make out.

I think we need a central defender too LM. Maybe not for the first team but I would like someone like Curtis Davies plus Young, SWP and Defoe. We wouldn't need anyone else if we got those.

I agree someone like davies would be a good signing but i don't think starting the season with the 4 centre backs we have would cause us major problems.

A rb, rm and a striker and we are good to go

any other players would be a bonus and improve us even more but i just don't think we are as desperate for loads of players as some make out.

I don't think Laursen will be able to play regularly and the jury is still out on whether he is over his injury problems. Therefore, I think a centre back is a potential weakness.

If laursen can't play regular then i agree it could well be a weakness.

I'd hope that between the player and the specialists they would have a good idea on what laursen will be able to do next season.

Ive gone for one (NRC) as what has happened or not happened has made me think that maybe we arent as big as what we thought we were gonna be and when you see players like Nugent, a good goalscorer with an England cap move to Pompey when we needed a goalscorer and he became available I was sure that we would sign him but to see him go to Pompey was embarassing, I cannot believe how inept we have been in the transfer market.......
