Pompey rivals watching? This might have Adam worried...

Would you Adam and Eve it? Pompey have signed not one Adam but two, swooping to recuit McGurk from Burton and Barton from Coventry.

McGurk, a striker, 26, was out of contract at Burton and told the Pompey website: What attracted me was the size of the club and the large crowds that come to watch the game.

'I’ve played against Pompey a few times and I’ve always been struck by how fantastic the fans have been, despite a difficult few years. They stick with their side, even when they’re not winning. That’s always impressed me and my team-mates.

'This club belongs in a higher division and now we have to make sure that happens, so we need to gel as quickly as possible.'

Midfielder Barton, who is 24, told the sire: This is a massive club and the manager was also a big factor in why I wanted to come here. He’s won this league before and the way I like to play is the same way that he likes to play, so that’s another positive.

'I like to get the ball down and play it forward – I’m always disappointed if I give it away. The fans were another big reason why I wanted to join the club. Coming to a place like this gives you such a boost.'
