Big Willi coming our way

A tale of two defenders this, with current Portsmouth reserve player Mike Williamson reportedly undertaking a medical at St James Park with a view to a permanent move. Having previously played for Watford the player clearly knows the division he's moving to, and there is a suspicion that his first-team appearances on the South coast have been restricted due to fees owed to Watford if he appears in too many more games from Pompey.

At 6' 4" he'll add further height to our back line, and adds some more depth to our relatively limited defensive options.

The one that got away however is Matthew Kilgallon, who only a few days ago was pledging his future to Sheffield Utd rather than sign for Newcastle, with the player newly unveiled by Ol' Cauliflower Face as a desperate attempt to plug the defence which conceded seven to Chelski last week.

Perhaps most damning is the clear indictment that whatever we might like to think, at least in some people's eyes, the Stadium of Shite is currently a more attractive destination - either that, or the player is fixated with teams who play in red and white stripes.
