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!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
