Life has taken its toll and I haven't been posting as much as I want. Too much to do, not enough time to do it.
But enough about me. Let's catch up with some news. This item comes from the BBC and writer Ben Wyatt. It's about Portsmouth and their African contingent. To read the full article, please click here! The following is an excerpt of the enlightening article.
Having recently captured Senegal's Papa Bouba Diop, manager Harry Redknapp has signed up an array of the continent's talent.
Fratton Park is now home to the all-Nigerian strike force of Nwankwo Kanu and John Utaka, Ghana's midfield maestro Sulley Muntari, Mali defender Djimi Traore, Cameroon's Lauren and Zimbabwe forward Benjani Mwaruwari.
Despite this assistant manager Joe Jordan denies the existence of an 'Africa specific' transfer policy.
"The players we have brought to the club are there because they are the best we could find for their respective positions.
"As long as the players who come into the club apply themselves we are glad to welcome them," Jordon added.
It's refreshing to hear a manager talking about the qualities of the players, not specifically where they're from. I wonder how the club feels about the upcoming African Cup of Nations?
