Pompey to beat Celtic, Everton, Bolton and Boro

Pompey to beat Celtic, Everton, Bolton and  Boro

In an unusual move today West Bromwich Albion confirmed that they had made their final contract offer to Zoltan Gera.

Jeremy Peace, the Baggies Chairman, made the following statement on the official club website:

'After lengthy discussions, we made Zoltan what we regarded as a full and very attractive offer last October.

Zoltan decided not to take up that offer, which has remained on the table all season.

We have since reviewed the terms of our offer to reflect the part he played in the clubs promotion to the Barclays Premiership.

We understand from his representative that Zoltan has received substantial offers from other clubs, but we have now tabled the best deal the club can make and we await his decision'

Hot on the heels of this statement it has emerged that Portsmouth have tabled an offer for the Hungarian international.

Portsmouth can offer Gera European football as well as allowing him to remain in the Premier League. It appears that the spending power of Pompey will prise Zoltan away from the Hawthorns where he is adored by the fans, players and staff.

The other suitors for Gera's signature, Celtic, Everton, Bolton, Middlesbrough, Villa and Benfica will have to act fast if they want to remain in the race.

We can only echo Tony Mowbray's words:

'He is very much appreciated by everyone here and we really hope he stays but if Zoltan decides to further his career elsewhere good luck to him'

As a Pompey fan I don't believe a word of this. The newspapers are having a field day with us at the moment knowing that we have to make our squad bigger for the next season. I don't see Gera as one of Harry's targets, although I am afraid I can see him going to another club prepared to pay him more.

I hear you Sneakay, we're being linked with every man and his dog at the moment....how many of these have Storrie/Arry commented on other than to deny them? Good player Gera, but I'm not entirely sure he'd be a huge improvement on what we have. Good luck in the Prem anyway Baggies, good supporters you lot.

This one comes from the Baggies end rather than Pompey. Not sure not always a regular last season was he?

Certainly not a regular last season by any stretch of the imagination. When he was on form he was very good but on his bad days he couldn't pick out a team mate. Anyway from reports circulating this morning it appears that Gera is off to Fulham.
