It is deadline day, but for all the papers trying to hype it up, very little is happening for the top clubs, with only the lower end Premiership teams trying desperately to make some quick fix signings.
It looks like Benjani might be playing against us for City at the weekend, a surprising move given that Pompey are quite cash-rich, but then rumours are that Defoe might be moving back to the south coast to replace him. Meanwhile, Kieran Gibbs has joined Norwich on loan.
Despite wins for United and Chelsea last night, it has been another good week for us, our 3-0 victory over Newcastle pushing us closer in goal difference to United and reducing the time Chelsea have left to catch us.
This weekend could be interesting, with all three playing away to decent opposition, with us perhaps in the best position playing a City side short of form. Elsewhere, we’re hoping for Spurs and Pompey to pull something out of the bag.
In site news, Groan’s move is now pretty imminent, but I’ll let you know when it happens. The new site is so much nicer, believe me.
And that’s about it. I’m off to feign some interest in the transfer window.
