==========

PORTSMOUTH FOOTBALL CLUB STATEMENT

Portsmouth Football Club would like to respond to unfounded reports in the media concerning the sale of the club.

The reports inaccurately allege Pompey's owner, Alexandre Gaydamak, has halved his asking price for the club. This claim is false and misleading.

All figures concerning the price of the club remain confidential.

Comments attributed to Pompey's executive chairman, Peter Storrie, have been taken out of context and were not intended for the media.

They were gained surreptitiously at a fans' forum by local Portsmouth newspaper The News, who attended the forum despite being banned from all club premises and events.

No statements or answers to questions regarding these matters were ever given to the media.

Journalists continue to write about Pompey without checking their facts or seeking comments from the club.

Yes, the press are bored and Pompey always prvides the opportunity for regurgitating tired old stories. However, there are always a significant minority who believe the adage "there's no smoke without fire". Interesting that The News were banned - I didn't appreciate that.

I personally am getting annoyed with the news, and other crappy tabloids who can't be arsed to actually use facts to make stories. These 'news' stories don't usually contain much. Especially from a paper with the same name...

The word "Slander" springs to mind. At the end of the day this is nothing more than misinformation about a business not only a football club, and it could seriously jeopardise the clubs future prospects finding a buyer. The club obviously take these things seriously otherwise they wouldn't keep on making statements. I just wonder what PFC lawyers are making of all this.

PS Why don't Pompey just take over the "News" and be done with it. With the cost of advertising these days it could be a nice little earner..

mffp - facts? The News are not interested in facts just speculation. That is what they think sells papers. We know the club are looking to sue someone at the moment and the ban on the News is inly the start.

corny totally agree too. These rumours could jeopardise the future of OUR club!!

Pompey WILL NOT climb into the top 3 this weekend - whatever Carlisle do - as the game at Crawley has been called off.

Lalkovic heads to Ross County

In a somewhat odd move - admittedly he's not been involved that much - Pompey's former Chelsea & Walsall winger Milan Lalkovic has joined Ross County on loan.

On this day in history...21st January

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 21st January.

Crawley in doubt

Pompey have the chance to move into the automatic promotion places - if we beat Crawley and Carlisle fail to win - but the elements might rob us of this possibility?
