Peter Storrie concluded the deal with Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim in Rome on Tuesday night.
A period of formal legal and financial due diligence will commence next week so that the transaction can be completed as soon as possible.

If the rumours about Al Fahim buying us coz the Spinnaker Tower reminded him of home are true, perhaps it wasn't such a waste of taxpayers money after all. Play Up Pompey!!!!

Just dont know how to feel, I guess I feel numb. Too good to be true! Problem is, my biggest loathing of Chelsea is that they are where they are now due to money, not a solid youth set up producing home grown talent. Hope we dont become one of those teams that are ruining football by offering silly money and obscene wages!!

I say. Wasn't it kept quiet? Only last week Storrie told us he had an American Consortium he was dealing with, and things were on track for July.! I did wonder whast had happened to the other "far eastern"interested party - and now we know!

cheers ruffcider, you're right yo know, that is how I feel. I've fallen out of love with the game due to players such as Drogba etc, hope we build steadily and bring our own youth through!

spot on simon, totally agree... i know i keep saying the same things but said this in a forum thread:
'im not interested in spending millions and billions and being linked to so and so, lets do things right, bring through players bring in a couple and keep the rest and were laughing... oh and get the ground (redveloped not moved!) sorted out and training facilities - then, all being well we can not only develop players, but keep them too.'


this is fantastic news as it means the 'uncertainty' is gone, we had to be sold, if not we were screwed - billionaire doesnt mean he will plough in millions and millions for players - spend some money on players this summer, get the training ground and redvelopment done and thats a massive plus.
