    Our transfer talk is unreal this summer.

    At least we have Sunday to look forward to where we can forget Football exists for a day.

    It's become pretty clear on our end that we're waiting for Seri and/or Sessegnon to be sold before making any significant signings (or just any signings). Hope now Ivory Coast are out of AFCON and Tielemans has been sold Seri can get his move to Monaco.

    We're barely even getting linked with players at the moment. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing given the team we already have at the club and the summer we had last year where we were genuinely just linked with everyone.

    Cavaleiro having a medical for a loan with an option to buy. Would assume it’s a pretty hefty loan fee like Leeds paid for Helder Costa- but that’s a quality signing.

    Knockaert’s been mentioned as well today. Now that would be a top drawer front three.

    So looks like we’re signing callum Robinson, very happy with that, looked a good player and 13 goals as a winger with an injury ain’t bad. Apparently having problems with Maupay as his agent is demanding 800k and we won’t pay it.

    Couldn't get Wycombe in the first round of the League Cup so we got them in the JPT instead.

    What with him and Freeman you’re well on your way to building a decent championship team.

    Kind of like what people said when we made signings in chanpionship, but that we were building a decent league one side.

    Linked with Besic now. Seem to remember someone slagging him off on here last season, but in theory he'd be a good signing for us because he'd offer us something different.

    I dont think we will be signing anyone tbh, no money to pay cleaners on 18k a year or whatever we certainly cant pay that a week. hopefully this new philosophy woodgate is putting in will be fruitful, early signs are not that great though, back to long ball at Gateshead.

    He was rank for us last season, was mint the half season before.

    I jest, IMO it’s a much better approach than Fulham/Villa chucking hundreds of millions around on a whole new team.

    Interested to see how Robinson does, he was woeful on loan here under Cotterill but then so were most of our players at that time. I’m just looking forward to him not scoring against us.

    Yeah I know. At the end of the day Wilders not gonna spend a **** ton and risk the club and he’s proven he can do miracles with very little resources.

    Another positive is if it pays off players like Robinson could be worth a hell of a lot more.

    Really happy with Robinson think he’s a very good player, scored 13 in 27 and had he not been injured he could have had a lot more and be costing a lot. Pretty low risk investment and a good age.

    I think we're a striker and a winger away from being sorted this summer.

    The first few signings I wasn't too convinced by, but I'm alot more optimistic now.

    Cant wait for the season now :)

    Lost 1-0 to Burnley tonight. Cyrus Christie came on in the 63rd minute and he gave away a pen in the 70th. We're probably getting battered by Porto on Tuesday if they take the game even semi-seriously and then we've got Brighton, Oxford and West Ham back in England.

    We are taking on Hartlepool in Teesside, which is basically the same.

    Wigan really are an odd bunch
    Every time we sell/have a player linked with another club our feed gets filled with ‘#Pompey fans is X any good?’ or some normal reaction like that
    Any time Wigan get involved though, our feed becomes ‘HAHAHAHA NO WONDER HE IS LEAVING A TRASH CLUB LIKE #POMPEY HAHAHA YOUR FANS ARE RUBBISH I HOPE YOUR GROUND FALLS DOWN’
    Very very odd
