good article PompeyMalta, and a good point well made...
i do not want to start rounding on TA now that he has gone but the whole 'we only want players that can come in and make a imediate impact' and 'players with premier league experience' nonesense, seems exactly that now, complete nonesense... pele, gekas and to an extent basinas have come in and have they made an instant impact? did any have premier league experience - no!
for me the truth with saviola and dos santos (who was fit enough for mexico and ipswich but not us) for that matter is that we could not afford the wages, or transfer fees could we, my cynical opinion at the time was that these were big name players that we had no intention of signing but linking to them raised our profile alittle, the handling of the dos santos deal was shocking and must have left other players thinking 'yea right will i go there to be made to look a fool of'...
