Al Fahim speaks

Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim, I think we need to find a shorter name for him, we have 'Sacha', so maybe something like 'Doc' or 'Sully' should be used - what do we think?

Anyway, back to the point our owner in waiting has sent us a message, I am not sure if he was talking direct to The News, or they just quote him, but this is what he said: 'everything I have seen makes me sure that we can build a great football club in the years to come.

'Portsmouth has incredible history, and its fans are some of the most loyal in the world of football.

'I look forward not just to working with them, but listening to their views on how they want to take the club forward.

'I am the investor, but this is their club and their community - and it is a privilege to be taking charge.'

All good words, and very promising to hear his thoughts that he wants to 'listen to the fans' and seek advice from us as this is 'our club'.

We all have ideas as to what we want and hope the future can bring so forums such as ours, and of course ours others, along with various supporters clubs groups are the way forward - gaining the views and thoughts of such networks and groups can only help...

Not sure about pet names, don't want to offend the wonderful man. No doubt there are some good ways to show our gratitude. We all hope for great things but everything in good time.

no, maybe your right rug... However I felt the whole interview was fairly reasuring... particually as it made me think he had more money at his disposal than I thought he did this morning when plymouthgraham was saying his value was only £300million...

I'm liking what I'm hearing. If this is the way he's going to go, he won't make the mistakes that were made after the City buyout. A lot of the talk that was doing the rounds then was pure bilge. Consolidation, stability with some expectations thrown in...MAGIC>>

Carpet is right, I have been on the UAE business sites, what he says to them is the thing to note; it will be more accurate and it will affect his reputation

This is Pompey we're talking about. Expect the unexpected until the deal is done. I have no doubt that his heart is in the right place and he believes what he says. What concerns me is that financial due diligence has, apparently, not been undertaken yet.

there is always that doubt tony, and expecting the unexpected with pompey is true, but ive tried to keep that doubt to the back of mind mind... this cannot fall through now, surely...

Vital View - League 2, 25th-26th March 2017

With Doncaster and Plymouth yet to play Portsmouth took advantage to close the gap and extend it on the chasing pack. Newport & Leyton Orient look likely to be relegated.

Video - Pompey 2-1 Newport

With Stevenage drawing and Blackpool the only potential challenger winning we've got a six point cushion on Boro that's effectively seven given our superior goal difference.
