Lets do it the right way, eh?

Lets do it the right way, eh?

So, word on the street is that 'protests' or 'demonstrations' are planned by Pompey fans at Havant & Waterloovile tomorrow night, hmm, what will that achieve...

As for these reported protests or demonstrations, who are they aimed at? Portsmouth Football Club as a whole, the current ownership or the ownership in waiting?

Whilst I can understand and appreciate that the Pompey faithful are frustrated, disappointed or are even dejected and want answers but I cannot see how these proposals will benefit anyone, for me they would most likely make things worse in as much as they only add to the uncertainty in so many peoples heads...

Lets show what we are really all about, our backs are to the wall so lets give the best support we can, shout and sing and back pompey all the way tomorrow is what I say!

Yep, I want answers as much as anyone, I am trying all I can to get answers, I am pissed off that our own official website is not telling us more, ok, areas to do with the takeover cannot see much said, but other areas can.

Lets keep the faith lets not protest too much against what is going on, lets show the true Pompey support, the support at its best to make Dr SAF even more appreciative of what he will be getting, lets get off on the right foot, not the wrong one!

Put it this way, times have been harder in the past than they are now, have they not? So why 'protest' now, who is it doing this and what is it expected to achieve in a positive light?

We might not want Paul Hart, we might not want so and so and want so and so else, but at the end of the day we have to accept what we are given, and then support this as we support the club not individual, right?

If we do not like this then we voice our discontent by not going to 'proper' games...

These are testing times, like I say I can understand and appreciate the frustrations and emotions everyone is feeling, we are all feeling them but lets keep the faith a while longer, lets not kick-off tomorrow night, lets show Portsmouth Football Club in a positive light for what it really is, the club with the best fans in the world - fans that deserve more, and will hopefully get more, and a lot more respect too, when these times do change!

Protesting now is a terrible idea, all it will do is put doubt in the doctors mind and if he pulls out now then we are totally @ucked!

What a complete waste of time. We are, and have been frustrated for 2-3 months now, and with a decision on the club take over imminent, why don't we wait to see the outcome before making fools of ourselves. The Press have already got their teeth into us big time, we are only helping them with this feeding frenzy by behaving in a ngative manner as well. Dignity please.

Absoloute nonsense that anyone should want to start demonstrating at the moment! I too, am a little worried by the thin squad and low quality we have left, however, this should be a time of showing our solidarity. Those who protest at the moment are the fairweather squad who never experienced Div 4 games etc. Lets show the Doc how great a fan base we are.

Protesting? We really do have some morons in our ranks dont we. Must be the same donkeys who post on the news website.

Forget the protests, that wont change anything, more importantly keep an eye out for those players that play and any triallists. Will we see the see the new left back? Also, guessing Crouch and Distin won't play?

Good shout Rug. You know my feelings are strong on this and in some respects I'm pleased I can't go tomorrow as if I saw somebody protest/demonstrate and spurt a load of crap at the team or Paul Hart or anybody connected to the club I'd probably just lose it - I agree most people are frustrated and want answers so do I .. but we have come this far .. What will a moronic bunch of 'supporters' (and I use that term loosely) actually think they can achieve - At times like this we should stick together and not dissent from the ranks .. We are at the drawning of a new era .. Why ***** it up .. when in another few days or weeks we will see Pompey change for the better (I hope) forever.

I disagree. Do I sit idle whilst a takeover that has taken an age, wrecked our pre season, and left us still wondering what is going on? Or do i voice my disapproval at the way the whole thing has been handled. I don't want Paul Hart as manager. I want more players and better players. I want an owner who has money to invest in Pompey rather than using Pompey as an investment. I am unhappy and know I am not alone. we plan plenty of protests at the pre season friendlies and if need be Premier league matches. Those who sit and wait patiently, I respect your view but not your method.

Takeovers take a long time. Those who think otherwise are deluded. Unfortunately, in trying to give the fans some good news, Pompey announced the potential deal far too early. Has anyone ever tried buying a house? Were you able sell you old house and buy your new house in a month? Now look at multi million pound business....do you think it could be done in a month? Don't be so ridiculous. PUP

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!

Will pair stay at Fratton?

It's been made (more than once) clear by Catlin Pompey want Davies & Hollands to stay. Both (also more than once) have said they want to this - deals have to be right for all concerned.
