    Like I said in the McNulty thread. I think he is off to Bristol.

    I wonder how accurate this story is as it makes the McNulty transfer sound very likely.

    On that article it makes out he isn't a starter for Pompey, why would Bristol be interested?

    He’s the love child of Conor Thomas and Charlie Chaplin.

    Just seen a few things with him being linked to them. Also the last person he followed on Twitter was Bristol. What sometimes is a give away.

    Impossible..... Charlie Chaplin died in 1977 and Conor is only 21.

    Also follows Willis too.

    Not entirely convinced about him replacing McNulty to be honest

    5 in 26 in this division last season, career best is 8 in 30 in League Two...
    Hard to get excited by that.

    Recently followed Bristol on Twitter but maybe terms haven't been agreed? Would be a real coup if we snatched him from Bristol at the 11th hour.

    The only thing that concerns me is that, are we going to struggle to adequately replace McNulty? I don't want a repeat of the Mowbray disaster where we try and sign players that are essentially too good for us, then end up with an Andre Wright as a consequence.

    Eisa is the one but doubtful SISU will give Robbins all the McNulty money so will be out of our reach as Cheltenham want 1.5m.

    Also Peterborough want him and they will spend money

    They've also received a £4.5m boost for the Jack Marriott sale so they could buy 3 Eisa's if it pleased them.

    Yeah but they don't get any if that 4.5 million though, do they? I thought that's not how football clubs were run? I'll email Tim now, I'm sure he'll confirm that I'm right.

    They'd get a significant proportion. But that's what happens when you don't let all your players leave on free transfers and subsequently put David Bell on a five year contract.

    You have to take his age into account. You are buying the potential with someone like Chaplin. As long as it's accompanied by a more proven striker it would be a great move.

    Dumb statement - he’s hardly started any games and by the same argument McNulty has a poor record before signing

    Sell your top scorer, buy a kid who can’t get into the Pompey team.

    Glad to see we’re back to normal. Frankly the optimism was freaking me out.

    McNulty was being farmed out on loan when we signed him and also wasn’t a regular

    To teams in our division and above, by a top side in the division above.

    He had a record of better than 1 in 3 for a team that was top of our league.

    Are you just trolling as usual or are you that bad at comparisons?

    Chaplin has a degree of potential, it would feel like a step back for me.

    The top scorer who along with his agent is forcing a deal through?

    Still, I bet it doesn't stop the outrage.

    It's not as if McNulty snapped our hands off for the upgraded contract renewal was it?

    He seemed to be committed last year but sounds like reading have tapped him up the agents have a lot to answer for they are ruining our game

    Must admit I don't know much about Chaplin. Were most of his goals last season off the bench?

    Chaplin has 25 goals in 121 apps for Pompey. 85 of which were off the bench.....

    That is actually not a bad ratio given his age. MR does seem to gst the best out of his strikers and it seems that Doyle really rates this kid....

    Watching that video he looks a bit like an Armstrong type player, seems pretty quick.

    The only think about Chaplin that worries me slightly is that he is about 5"6. He'll definitely need someone alongside him if he does sign otherwise MR might as well tell our wingers to never bother crossing.

    He looks quick and can use both feet. I'd be happy with him coming into the squad.

    He looks talented and I am sure robin's could get best out of him

    I imagine this is the striker robin's wanted on top of current 4 anyway? Hopefully mcnukty will choose to stay. He could be same level as reading in just 1 year

    He wasn’t part of the Portsmouth team that won the league, he was there when they in the playoffs.

    It's not a bad return considering he's been mainly been used as a substitute - he is only 21. His stats are from 31 starts, 73 substitute appearances. It could be a good signing.
