Thommo Holding Fort And Confident

Thommo Holding Fort And Confident

Assistant manager Steve Thompson is holding the fort at Bloomfield Road this week, and has publicly stated that the club are confident of signing 'quality' ahead of the new season.

Whilst it is thought that manager Ian Holloway is abroad on a recruitment mission, Thompson has been talking about the possibility of loan stars Charlie Adam and DJ Campbell signing.

'I have spoken to Charlie and he would love to come back but it all depends on what Rangers want for him,' said Thompson.

A deal for Campbell looks more complicated because of his wage demands: 'But in DJ's case it all depends what package he is looking for. His agent will be looking for the best package he can get for him and he'll be talking to other clubs.

'But he is another who'd love to come back because he enjoyed it here and when you are a footballer and you enjoy it at a particular place, and you feel settled and wanted, that counts for a lot,'
finished Thommo.

But it is the whereabouts of Holloway which is fascinating to 'Pool fans.

Thought to be in Hungary this week, the new manager left a (somewhat ambigious) link to the club chasing Hungarian international striker/winger Gergely Rudolf.

The 24-year-old has played for his country eight times - notching up a goal in the process - and plies his trade with Hungarian champions VSC Debrecen, for whom he scored 16 times last season, and also three in three whilst his team were qualifying for the UEFA Cup. His contract runs out at the end of next campaign, and the lure from England is huge.

Adding fuel to these rumours (and the fact Blackpool desperately need forwards) is that Rudolf's agent, Vladan Filipovic, is also the agent of Krisztian Timar of Plymouth - a player he signed at Home Park. Cardiff's Gabor Gyepes is also under the eye of Filipovic, so a move to England doesn't sound too unrealistic.
