'If It's Football, It's Vital'

McKay Does It Again

After luring Ellington to West Bromwich Albion and orchestrating Chimbonda's proposed transfer Tottenham Hotspur, Willie McKay is trying to move Henri Camara on to Portsmouth.

Redknapp, who worked with Camara at Southampton, is rumoured to be preparing a £4 million bid for Camara and McKay, as ever, is paving the way with comments to the press.

McKay, a friend of Redknapp, said : 'He's a player with tremendous pace who scores goals and creates things.

'Imagine him getting a chance to play with players like Andres D'Alessandro and Pedro Mendes, with the balls they would be putting through from midfield.

'He scored four goals in the African Cup of Nations for Senegal and 12 in the Premier League for a Wigan side who, no disrespect, were not expected to stay up.

'All his goals came from his pace or were made by himself rather than coming from midfield.

'It's not like a player who has gone to Everton from Crystal Palace for £8.5million (Andy Johnson), who scores a high proportion of his goals from penalties.'

'I think Portsmouth will be in Europe next year. I think the players they got in the last transfer window, with a few additions, are good enough to take them into the UEFA Cup places.

'The number of points they got towards the end of the season was amazing. It was Champions League form.'

Redknapp said: 'I like Henri Camara. But I haven't spoken to Paul Jewell at Wigan. Whether he would sell him, I don't know.'

Surely there is something dodgy about what this McKay bloke is doing. There must be something the FA can do about it.

Agents get a cut every time a player move so...

If this potential exit of first team players happens there will be nobody left at wigan.

the bloke is very bad for football, he has done similar at pompey, funniliy enough when Redknapp was not at the club. Does seem to be unhealthy his friendship with HR. What do you lot think of Camara, I have only seen him in the flesh 3 times and he has been good each time, if AJ is worth 8.5mill i would have thought 4million would be very good value.

Spot on JR, i wish there was something the FA could do. I wish someone could make them disappear overnight. SCUM, thats what they are.

He will do well at Pompey. And WE WILL GET HIM! Pompey will be a big team next season. UEFA may be a bit optimistic but we did do very well at the end of last season. That was UEFA form. If we start the season how we finished the last, we will be a contender for top 10 atleast. Poor old Wigan. Not looking good for you is it.

I think he go to pompey because of the links with Harry.

POMPEYMEV, your right its not looking good for Wigan is it. Everyone they try and sign laughs in their face. Relegation anyone??
groseyboy
I dont think Wigan will get relagated - but it'll be hard for them to be as good as they were last season - and get such a high finish!

Relegation battle will be an almost definate.
