Maradona - the hand of god...

Maradona - the hand of god...

...offering the hand of friendship to Pompey?

Surely not!

Silly season has 'gone into over drive', right?

What with it being claimed that Diego Maradona is 'willing to quit as Argentina manager' to become a 'global ambassador' for Pompey...

Well, these are the latest claims from Arabianbusiness.com - EXCLUSIVE: Diego Maradona wants Portsmouth job, lawyer claims - click here.

They say that his lawyer has said he would be willing to do just this...

So, it is claimed that 'emails seen by Arabian Business' from Maradona's lawyer, Angel Oscar Moyano, say 'Maradona wants to help build a strong team "for which he offers his mediation for signing players of top level who with the support of Diego Armando Maradona, will be ready to come to Portsmouth FC."

'He's got all top players ready and even he's ready to leave Argentine National team.'

Dr SAF's people have 'refused to comment' on this...

Hmm, to be fair Arabianbusness.com has been pretty accurate with what they have said but I cannot see what the appeal would be to Maradona, put it this way, why would he risk the wrath of the Argentinean people by walking out on the national side?

Granted things are not going 'very well' for them, but it is not going to happen, is it?

Then again if they know each other and he could do something to work with Pompey and carry on working with Argentina then it is possible, right? As crazy as it sounds, like it or not, this is Pompey we are talking about - you should know that we should never know what to expect!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Interesting to put it mildly, One thing is, it would take the pressure off of Hart to try and charm players in and get on with the job in hand, also I noted today is the point that the club want Brian Kidd to stay as well, if all happens great, but Hart is manager now, like it or lump it, lets get behind him

Mad, the world has gone mad. Send the muppets from the media into more anti-pompey overdrive. More chance of having Madonna playing for us than this bizarre argy being here!!!

Given that this story was given to the press by "ANGEL" Oscar Moyano, who are we to doubt the word from the heavens?

Arabian Business dot com have been pretty accurate with the majority of their reporting so it wouldn't surprise me to see him become our Global Ambasador. Interesting times at Portsmouth to say the least.

I especially like the point where he claims to have four international players ready to come to Pompey. Does this mean that they play for their country or that they are just from outside Europe?

I would like this to be true, but I just can't see it. Never say never with Pompey though.

On a different point just read on another web site the deal with the Dr is not as clear cut as it would all have seemed yesterday.http://dralfahim.blogspot.com/2009/07/portsmouth-takeover-not-all-it-seems.html. Have a read guys, not sure what to think will ponder, but what do you think?

I wish people would stop reading that blog. It was created in July 2009 to discredit our new Chairman. It also wouldn't surprise me if it was a saints fan trying to dusrupt the good times that will now occur at our beloved portsmouth.
