Dubai here we come - find a buyer guys...

The Pompey squad will be off to Dubai for a training camp after the game with Chelski as the club looks to completely unify the squad and revitalise this ahead of the final push before the season ends.

Due to us no longer being involved in this seasons FA cup we have a free weekend - and I think the complete realisation of this will sink in for me when the weekend comes around and we have no game, in the last round we at least had a rearranged league game with Citeh to preoccupy us - so this enables us to spend time in fantastic surroundings with state of the art training facilities.

Once again though this highlights our desperation to get our own state of the art training facilities up and running as the winter months keep causing havoc with our Eastleigh facilities. Remember last season we went off to Malaga for a similar training camp around this time, although that training camp saw plenty return with nothing to be proud of!

There is a draw back to this though...

A fans forum was scheduled to take place on Thursday in the fans marquee, but as Pompey personalities will not be available this has been cancelled for the time being, which will of course disappointed hundreds of fans as 200 tickets had been sold in advance. The rearranged date that has been pencilled in is Thursday 19th March, but this is yet to be confirmed.

Could we have chosen a better place than Dubai? Hell no, everyone is minted over there!

Come on guys make an impression on the billionaires in the UAE and you might even be able to return back not only refreshed, revitalised and of course tanned but also with a rich sugar daddy, maybe even a sugar mummy for us - now there's a thought, move over Citeh, you will have a rival...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

They will miss the snow predicted this week then!! Not bad for some and three points at Boro on Saturday week would prove the worth.

On a serious note, a massive game at Boro on the Saturday where we can't afford a defeat. Trust the boys will come back fully refreshed & raring to go!

it's got to be about advertising our team? surely... I mean, if we wanted to relax, sitting on an aeroplace for 6+ hours is hardly the way to go about it.

Good point there Carpet.. As well as the team bonding thing, it does show our "colours" in another part of the world. And you just never know who is about do you. We might just catch the eye of the odd billionaire.. Wish i was going, i could do with topping up my tan...

how fantastic would it be to come back from dubai with an interested investor too - im not talking 'stoopid' input money wise, just enough to get the new stadium, new training ground a few quality players and leave us easily able to sustain our 'lifestyle'...

I bet we do come back with a buyer, who will come out at the end of the season. Probably the guy who fronted the city takeover.
