Transfer deadline day is always my favourite day of the season, it comes from my addiction to Championship Manager when I was a kid, I was playing this during my formative years, if I had of gone outside more often, my life may have turned out a bit different.

Anyway, Im digressing, I like a good transfer, but today has been slightly dissappointing in the movements so far, but it will probably pick up a bit later.  The best so far is that the Finnish Legend (Don’t think I’m going over the top there, he was a brilliant player) Jari Litmanen joining Fulham.  Its a bit odd as he is 75, but then again, Fluham do have the worst manager in the league.  When Roy Hodgeson is sat on the touchline he always looks lost.

Slightly more worrying for me though is that Benjani, our top scorer of the season appears to be having a medical at Man City.  This could turn out to be a decent bit of business for us as he only cost £4million, and the rumours say he could be going for £7million.  The problem is though, who do we get in instead.  I’ve seen one rumour that Fredi Kanoute could be on his way to the training ground, and speculation is still surrounding Jermain Defoe.  I wouldn’t mind either of them, but then again, I would have liked it more if they could link up with Benjani.  Still I suppose that the gaffer knows what he is doing.  Last season he sold Gary O’Neill to ‘Boro.  But our top scorer by 8 goals …..

Also on the Pompey front more rumours that Alexandre Gaydamak has put us up for sale.  That could be interesting!  Ill keep you posted.
