Paul Benson: A proven goalscorer in the Football League

Pompey hope to land the experienced forward now, before adding him to their ranks on a full-time basis in January.

A deal will, however, depend on the success of a proposed takeover at Fratton Park.

The Pompey Supporters' Trust have edged a step closer to buying the League One club, with a deal agreed with administrators.

Should Portsmouth be able to find some much-needed stability, they will then be able to focus their full attention on efforts on the field.

Benson is considered to be the type of player who could aid them in their quest to secure promotion back into the Championship.

The former Dagenham and Charlton frontman is now 33 years of age, but he is a proven goalscorer in the Football League.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
