'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Still work to be done

Sulaiman Al Fahim or 'Dr SAF' as I will call him myself from now on after eastneydave and the toast team thought of a rather fitting yet respectful name, might have agreed a fee with Sacha for Pompey, but there is still work to be done before this is completely signed, sealed and delivered.

The News believes that the deal is 'expected' to be completed this week, although to be honest I would not be at all surprised to see this take longer and will myself be allowing several weeks - so patience is the key, and this is the message that Peter Storrie is giving: 'Sacha Gaydamak will meet the new people this week.

'Most of the work has been done with myself so far. Some of the due diligence process is done already.

'There will be a more detailed process this week, and it will take as long as it needs.

'We're not getting carried away yet. The deal is not done until it's done.'

Dr SAF is due at Fratton today to put 'the finishing touches to the move' with the due diligence process continuing, as I say this could take several weeks so lets allow for this and not start to get 'twitchy', or even start to 'worry' if it is taking a while - these things can, and often do, take time.

We are getting there though, and once this is completed we can then start looking forward to what promises to be an exciting future, certainly a future that should be very stable when we looked like having one that was far from that!

A wise article Rug, not only is the deal to be done ownership has to be approved by Scudamore and we will be the first club to go through the new tougher criteria test
russellm
Lets hope it all goes smoothly.
PompeyFcMad
Totally rug, excellent article. Time we have have & quality of time will be ours. Cynical as we can all be at times, we have to let these things take it's natural course of events. Happy days are here again...
storagematt
I cannot wait now! We just need a manager sorted as well,,,, let's see if anyone sees him at FP today?
MFFP
Getting closer now, confirmation quick please!
pompeyyong
I'll be glad when this is all over. Optimistic though that everything will transpire as planned. Mind you we are talking Pompey here!! Yeah, I'm sure it'll be fine.
cornypomp
Am I the only one who looks at the news headlines everyday dreading seeing the words 'Pompey sale falls through'? The quicker the better. And then we can get on with business, appoint a manager, and buy some players before we get too far into the transfer window.
tracyc
No Tracy you're not, the pessimistic side of me agrees with you. I don't think I could cope with it falling through, I'd rather have hinself back.
Lemmi
That's 'himself back'
Lemmi
I read on the Guardian that we wont be able to buy any new players till July, as it will take weeks for the FA to clear the Doctor.
nodster
Another day over, God, time seems to have slowed down, or is just me. Nodster, isn't July when the market opens anyway officially anyway?
cornypomp
Just had a thought.. I hope with all this due dilligence going on that they are not too dilligent and unearth a dodgy deal Mr Sandbanks managed to sweep under the carpet..
