Jamie O’Hara would be a brilliant signing for Newcastle United

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

O’Hara - A very good player and would be a great addition to Newcastle United

There are usual reports in the papers about Portsmouth and their financial worries in the last few days and more than likely, Pompey will be a Coca Cola Championship club come May this year. It’s been a big drop for a club who only a couple of years ago lifted the FA Cup with Harry Redknapp in charge. Since then, the club who used to boast the likes of Jermaine Defoe, Peter Crouch, Niko Kranjcar, Sol Campbell and indeed Sylvain Distin. Now all the stories regarding the club are about departures and indeed their uncertain future as a football club.

One man who has been committed to the Pompey cause throughout the turbulent time has been Jamie O’Hara. The midfielder, on-loan from Tottenham has shown real grit in the centre of the park for Avram Grant’s side and whether he still has a future at either club, remains to be seen.

However, in the last couple of days we’ve been linked with the 23 year-old and it’s pleasing to say the least. Sure we have a lot of similar midfielders in Joey Barton, Alan Smith, Danny Guthrie, Kevin Nolan and so forth. Needless to say, some faces will be moved on in the summer regardless of what division we’re in, and I think O’Hara would be a perfect addition.

I’ve always rated Jamie and I know I’m not alone but it’s not just that, he seems the determined type and isn’t someone to say he wants out of a club, as soon as a tough period comes about. This can be seen during his stint at Pompey. He returned to Spurs in January but wanted desperately to return to Fratton Park and his wish was granted, with the Pompey fans delighted to see him back.

I think it’s fair to say that he will not be a Portsmouth player come the end of the season and should we be a Premier League club by then, I think it’s definitely worth making a bid for him. I don’t think he will feature in Harry Redknapp’s plans although the same was said for Roman Pavlyuchenko and look at him now.

Either way, onwards and upwards from a Toon fans perspective. On a side note, our condolences go out to Charlie Crowe. A legend who pulled on the Black And White stripes of Newcastle with pride passed away yesterday, may he RIP.

Comments welcome 🙂

Certainly Icedog. I really rate the lad and I don't think he'll be at Spurs for long when he returns either.

Would be a terrific signing. Big fan of Jamie's, and he's never going to get a good run at Spurs because Modric is world class and seems to play best on the left side of midfield.

Would be a fantastic signing with regards next season he has premiership expierence and quality . We would stand a good chance of getting him also , a certain Chris Hughton coached him for the Spurs youth team before he made his breakthrough .

I think it would be a savvy addition if we can pull it off but only at a fair price..That being said another player i would like to see us pursue in the summer is Stephen Ireland seems as if he is a surplus at City and would be an excellent addition for Newcastle a midfielder with some pace and flair..What do u think?

That would be a midfield to get us top half of the premiership . Trouble is if Ireland becomes available the likes of villa , liverpool and spuds would be intrested to

Good shout on O'Hara, as Pompey are in such a mess I'm sure plenty of clubs are eyeing up their players. I really rate Belhadj as well, pretty sure he's a left sided midfielder which would add a bit of competition for Gutierez on the wing and he's good at getting forward.

I'd really like him on Tyneside anyway and as for Stephen Ireland, I've a feeling he'll still feature in Mancini's plans.
