'The sky's the limit now'

'The sky's the limit now'

...Just one of the quotes attributed to a 'source' that The Sun claims to have in their 'I'll Sheikh up Pompey' article.

An article regarding Sulaiman Al Fahim's 'apparent' plans for Pompey...

'This is Portsmouth's wildest dream come true. The club was in a desperate financial mess but all the debt has been cleared in one huge swoop.

'This lot mean business. They have huge plans for the club and want to out-do Manchester City in the spending stakes.

'They'll transform Portsmouth into a real Premier force - the sky's the limit now.'

I think these are the kinds of things we are going to have to get used to from the likes of The Sun for the time being - they will start inevitably 'linking' us with player after player for multi-million pound amounts...

Time and patience is the key for me, keeping expectations to an acceptable limit must be the way to go. We cannot get carried away - maybe in time we will be 'a real Premier force' but this will take time, so lets not get suckered into the medias way of thinking and go overboard. Airing on the side of caution must be the way to go?

Transforming us as a club from 'top to bottom', looking at all areas of the club is wonderful to hear - doing this as a steady and gradual process would be even better, and early indications, despite 'sources' that will come out, are that this is the game plan.

My own personal goals for the immediate future were laid out in this, What a difference a day makes! - check it out and see what you think...

Happy Birthday to us all. Yes, very easy to get carried away but slowly but surely at first. We need to build a team that can play together, not a load of overpriced money grabbing under performing egos.

Started the day still having to pinch myself to believe that this has happened. Holy Smoke it's real. Have read the article in the news about how Cities new owners have done one hell of a lot more for the club and supporters than just a few wild transfer headlines. Investing in their accademy, infrastructure etc. That sounds great to me. I still think the enormity of this take over is going to take some time to sink in, but I'm enjoying the ride. Wonder where we'll be five years from now???

I think the Prem Will be a lot more intresting next season. Forget the big 4. The 5 way fight below them between Villa,Everton,Spurs,Man city and pompy will be Terrific

hasn't the fight for the two/three european places always been more intresting than the predictable fight for the top 4?

Carpet the man is rich, he sold two of his concerns for over a billion, and is listed as the 16th richest in that part of the world. We needed someone to sort out the debt, ensure our quality players stay, and the hangers on left. Invest in the ground, build the training facilities and devleop the youth system, these can now be sorted as well. Now we can bring in some quality and move on to the next level, Randy Lerner did it for Villa now it could be our turn

Totally agree with the article, UAE investors live lavish life styles and that's because they are famously risk averse with their business funds

The top 4 might be predictable but who finishes where in the top 4 is not.In my earlier post i meant that the Fight of Supremacy between the Best of the Rest would be more intresting than the Fight between liverpool,chelsea and Man utd to win the Championship. One of us might Even pipe the Scum for the 4th spot. One more Reason that the prem would be fantastic next season is that the Barcodes will not be there. they will be Busy playing the Likes of Reading, Scunthorpe. I truely cant wait and i really hope you buy good players

Vital View - League 2, 29th April 2017

Plymouth moved to the top - they'll battle with Doncaster & Portsmouth to be crowned Champions. It looks as if Hartlepool will join Leyton Orient in Non-League.

Video - Mansfield 0-1 Pompey

Well, it'll go down to the wire as Pompey's win at Mansfield means the Blues, third, can still win the title ahead of (now) leaders Plymouth and Doncaster.
