'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Royally shafted!!!

Ah, never before have the VitalWatford boys been so pleased to hear the chiming of those annoying Pompey bells than we are right now....

Let them ring out loud and clear for all we care for the words 'hijacked` and 'gazumped" screaming out on the newswire are music to our ears anyway!!!

A last gasp bid from Premier League side Portsmouth have scuppered Reading`s plans to reveal 'new signing` Tommy Smith as the Watford wideman (bless him) decided to travel down for a medical on the South Coast.

It gets better....

It is believed that the right royal shower in Berkshire had pencilled in a press conference for this afternoon after agreeing a deal with Watford but Smithy has, brilliantly, had a change of er [Paul] Hart and has headed off to see what the bright lights of the big league can bring at Fratton Park.

Whilst we can never say never (and boy, we don`t know what Rodgers has up his sleeve), it`s now expected that Tommy will sign for Pompey in a 1.8m no quibbles arrangement.

No haggling between the chairmen. No mucking about with "derisory" offers from a failed ex goalkeeper. No wasting time wrangling over little fine details or a 200k fee for appearances.... just a simple offer that the Hornets are happy to accept.

It's all down to the player now.

Don`t you just hate it when you say one thing and then do another, huh Brendan?

Smudger can play right wing or striker,right wing is were he is best at! not as good as the likes of kranjcar but he does put in alot of effort likes to run at the opposition and usually gets passed his man and put in a good ball. Smudger is in great form so im sure he will do a decent job for the pompey!
Golden Looney
That's exactly what i am thinking Hussler. I quite like him, and personally think he can do a better job then Nugent, if he comes down south. Maybe even partner Nugget...
.Andrew.
Has quite a good goal tally for a Midfielder.

maybe its a good bit of business by hart ship nugent out for 4m to hull or stoke and get smith in for 1.8m . nugents off we have piq+dindane now plus utaka. and of course the big man KANU
