They're Back - With One Surprise

Crouch And Swp Talk Picks Up

Peter Storrie's assertion that transfer activity at Fratton Park will soon pick up has sparked a flurry of stories about big names coming to Pompey - or staying with Pompey.

Stand By For Fratton Arrivals

Pompey have indicated more signings are around the corner - and it could be that there will be more European arrivals than English ones.

Striker Signs - But Who'll Join Him?

Pompey have made their second signing of the summer - but it's the players they haven't signed who seem to be causing more intrigue at the moment. Teenage Israeli striker Ben Sahar has joined the Blues on a year's loan from Chelsea. He will presumably be back-up to Jermain Defoe, David Nugent, maybe Kanu and whichever other striker(s) the club net before the end of August. But it seems Sahar is ....

That's good news for Pompey fans, who have begun to get a little ....

Fratton's Revolving Door Slows Down

Another quiet weekend on the transfer front has added fuel to the theory that Pompey's squad won't be as vastly different for the new season as some thought. That's not to say there won't be some significant new faces in the squad come August 16 at Chelsea - but perhaps there won't be as many as were expected at the end of last season. Yossi Benayoun is the biggest name to be linked with Pompey ....
