Southampton said to be interested in audacious move for Benjani

Daily Echo: Benjani Benjani

SAINTS have been linked with an audacious move for Pompey’s former £4.1m striker Benjani.

As previously reported on the Daily Echo website, the 31-year-old Zimbabwean striker is currently a free agent after being released by Manchester City last month.

Benjani was signed by Pompey boss Harry Redknapp in Jauary 2006, shortly after the manager had returned to the club from Saints.

He had been recommended to Redknapp by Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger.

Benjani moved onto Manchester City just over two years later in a £3.8m deal.

The player, also recently linked with a move to Premiership clubs Blackburn, West Ham and Wolves, ended last season on loan at Sunderland, failing to score in eight starts.

The possible capture of Benjani would be a remarkable piece of business by Pardew, capturing an experienced Premier League strike - and beating off top flight clubs in the process.

Saints boss Alan Pardew has also reportedly failed with a £400,000 bid for his former Reading striker Nathan Tyson.

Comment: Benjani to Saints? Seems a bit unlikely!

Can you actually see it happening, dropping down 2 divisions.
He was supposedly on £50,000 a week at Man City.

Gosport is right, how nice is it to actually be linked with quality players! It shows how far we are moving on, that the press actually think it is a possibility.
Won't happen though

I am the only one who isnt excited about this? 31 year old has been, cant score. I've never rated him. He hardly got any goals at pompey, had a decent run of about 12 games and scored about 6-7 goals, 3 came as a hatrick. Never really did anything at city. I've seen loads of old players drop divisions over the years and do f all. Saying that if he could do what say merson and sheringham did for pompey to get them promoted we'd be delighted but I'm not convinced. However, I also was gutted when we signed crouch...! Would be nice to "have a name" I must admit. Still would prefer beattie or Austin. Just worrried he could turn into a harewood who did nothing after dropping down to the championship last year!

I am amazed that anyone would want to see Beattie return. I have always considered him to be a disruptive influence and does not appear to have changed in that respect since leaving.
At the moment the squad appears settled and there appears to be harmony. It only needs one bad apple for that to be destroyed.
Benjani. A team player, but has been dogged by injury. Would he pass a medical?

I just want us to get a striker in asap. Then go and sort this antiono deal out. then finally get the midfielder we need who can play cm and right mid. All in 3 weeks for the season opener. We cant have any excuses come the first game.

We can then use the final 3 weeks until end of aug to get a loanee or two in to give them experience and us extra cover. Especially another CM and maybe CB.

Who would want Lambert to score three times as many goals, which may result in promotion?

Sheffield Wednesday have been issued with a winding up order by HMRC. I remember going to Hillsboro when Saints went into administration, their fans were saying that they couldn't believe that they may never see Saints again. Their fans were fine but the then manager Brian Laws was a complete fool, the day before kick saying that Saints should be docked 10 points, very diplomatic! I hope they pull through, but it will be interesting to see how they are dealt with compared to the rabble down the M27 who STILL haven't been deducted points, and somehow still function as a football club.

Stranger things have happened though?

Anyone who moans about Beattie, are you all that forgetful, typical moaning football fans?
The guy is an arrogant pig, but he is an arrogant pig with a wife and kids and he is lucky enough to have a 10-15 year career that will set him and his family up for life so course when he left he did it for more money than we could offer and for what he saw as bettering himself, he is now 31-32 and approaching the later days in his career, he can still score goals in the premier league and there-for would tear it up in LG1....gheez, This I believe could easily be the same story for Benjani, different player but still would terrify your average LG1 defender! Neither mentioned are long term appointments but they would get you out this division. Also wages would be down to the club and are capped in this division!Get real Beattie haters...sour!

If either or both of the mentioned came to SMS then I can guarentee you would be chearing their names after they netted a couple,that is if you do attend...

I still think AP and NC have got somethin up there sleeve i mean who saw the Ricky signing comming last year that blew us all away. I still think we might get someone from overseas as well. They would have all been eyeing the players at the world cup so who knows but i rekon somthin is def in the wind and its not the curry i had last night.

Still think benjani would be a poor signing due to age and injurys,On the other hand would hate to have beattie back and could'nt imagine him and lambert striking off tbh as they are both powerful players,lukas jutkiewicz like i've said many of times would be a good signing for this season and the next few as he is young. Also we need a CB rob jones the scunny 6,7 CB would be a amazing signing, Also looking for a wide man ? Why not MIKE GOSNEY from totton ?

Agree maybe a bit of a wish, Beattie was still a legend! I was there holding the banner at the FA cup final that read "and the beat goes on " haha! Beattie does love it down here but his wife's family are from Botley and they are often there visiting, used to work there and see them passing all the time! COME BACK BEATTS! whataloadofdump

Nathan Tyson would be the most interesting of the strikers mentioned here.

Beattie won't come anyway as one of the new Prem clubs would take a punt on him, but why would we want him anyway?

We have players of his type who are better, younger, cheaper and fitter than him already.

What we really lack without Antonio and Papa is basic pace and unpredictability.

As shown last season by Antonio, who was far from brilliant in terms of control or tricks, is that League 1 defenders cannot cope with players with basic pace, even if it's just kick-and-run-after-i
t pace.

That's what we're missing in our current attack.

Personally I think you can forget Beattie and Benjani, apart from any other reason, their wage demands would be to high.
If I remember the figure from last season, we can't spend more than £180000 per week on 1st team wages.

We're all entitled to our opinions.

Rickie Lambert could definitely play in the Prem, he's a lot better than some we've had here, who are now mostly plying their trade at Stoke, people always have this Prem tag as if you've got to be as good as Ronaldo to play there, BS just look at the likes of Stoke, Bolton and Wigan to see that they have players of very limited ability playing week in, week out in the right formation.

His ball control im afraid is much better in the bedroom than it is on the field of play, the reason we lost Bret Ormaroyd

Suites? he is a bit slow but to describe him as a suite its a bit tough. We did have a wardrobe you could buy but he was a bit on the expensive side for you. You stick in buying third division players, that is where you future lays.
Perhaps we'll buy some of your lot then!
No they r shi*te,lol

security word:team-last,and they probably will be!

BUT!!!!! Balder's old fella, at least we are SIGNING players, I know your insanely jealous, your posts prove it beyond doubt but we dont have any league restrictions in place stopping us buying, and we have the infrastructure to place an interest and purchase. Totally and utterly unlike your disgrace of a club, who cannot do either, and have the added shame of ripping off charities, you post as if you are proud of your club, and you have something to shout about, when in reality you have neither. I pity you and Linesman, both only come on here to make sarcastic comments, sad, sad people, p.s I hope to god we don't sign Benjani.

Pards checking then rechecking in 8 days for better deals on the market is a very sensible thing. As the season approaches the agents with no deals or clubs on the line will start to panic.. players wanting a job will be sweating and getting aggro on the phone to them...
all the while the gap to L1 from Prem or Championship shrinks.
Don't panic Mr Mannering Don't Panic it's not time to look at Dad's Army players for the mighty Red Army..
Would love Pards to chuck a post or two on here... would be laugh if jumped in once a month and posted F/O to a few and a :) on others.
