The Sunday press appear to be determined that one of our players will end up at Portsmouth!

Last week we were told that Harry Houdini Rednapp was looking at a bid for Czech international striker Milan Baros and today the News of the World say that Pompey will be bidding £5million for left sided midfielder Gareth Barry.

Barry, who was last week linked to Tottenham Hotspur, is going nowhere according to David O’Leary who has said the only two players he won’t consider selling are Gareth Barry and fellow midfielder Steven Davis.

Just hope he’s told Doug. 🙁

If Pompey are that interested in taking a Villa player, could we not offer them the Djemba twins!?

  • i think he will go but i dont think it will be portsmouth, most likely to be spurs

  • I don’t see the funny side to be honest – Portsmouth are fast becoming a better team than Aston Villa. Barry is a good player, and at some point he will surely ask whether he ows himself the oppotunity to play at a higher level.

  • Indeed. Pompey may have been a relegation struggler for the past three seasons but what odds did they have of surviving all 3, especially this year. Aston Villa are a good team but I would place my life savings on the fact Pompey will end up higher in the

  • We are one place better than them pitythefool, lets hold on to some hope that we remain bigger than them at least!!!?

  • Would understand and possibly forgive him for going to Spurs(europe,ambitius manager/chairman,Young talented squad and better chance of a crack at the England team) but going to Pompey would really destroy my faith in all humanity as far as i can see all

  • excuse me but we have been in the prem for 3 season all of them have been average not disasterous and we have scraped by, but now a new era is being born with exciting consequences that will shape years to come (watch this space)

  • yeah, pompey might have money but nobody will be attracted to them for a few seasons untill you establish yourselfs as a strong premiership force

  • Stupid rumour by a stupid journo. Sounds like a lucky dip to me. Make up a list of players who might leave their clubs and put them in a hat. Then make a list of premiership clubs and put them in another hat. Choose a player and choose a club. Instant rum

  • We didnt for one minute think that Gareth Southgate would end up at an outfit like Middlesbrough, when he announced his determination to leave B6, so stranger things have indeed happened. Even so, surely he wouldnt choose to move to Portsmouth, particular

  • I think everyone body could understand the link with Spurs, what with them being in Europe and also being a big club and of course Barry being a Spurs fan, But Portsmouth….somebody really is having a laugh if they think Barry would even consider it. If

  • If Portsmouth do come in with a bid, regardless of whether Barry leaves or not, it will be a huge statement of intent from Pompey. It will mean that they’ve come to play with the big boys.

  • We will play the big boys and we will conquer them. Villa are going down next season.
