A not so warm welcome for David James

Has signing David James sparked a goalkeeping controversy at Portsmouth? Seems so judging by the reaction to his signing by Dean Kiely - himself only signed last season and who played a key role in staving off relegation.

Kiely was quoted as saying:

"It will be a bit of a travesty on the back of what I did last year if some sort of Hollywood-type showbiz keeper with a massive ego came in and played just because he is a big name."

A Jens Lehmann-Oliver Kahn situation in the making?
