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

Storrie's consortium taking over? Or not...

There is nothing 'official' on The Pompey Site, or any quotes to back these claims up, but Arabianbusiness.com is 'claiming' that Peter Storrie's led consortium of investors is taking over Pompey?

EXCLUSIVE: New consortium takes over Portsmouth.

The report says that Storrie's group will take a majority share in the club with SAF taking the remaining stake, with SAF being the one that will guarantee the clubs debt.

Apparently, and most importantly it is said that Storrie and his crew will 'pour immediate funds into the club.'

Now lets see this become 'official' and see actions, and not words, take place...

UPDATE

The Arabianbusiness.com article has since been pulled, is this because there is no truth to it? Or is it because the club wanted to be the ones to officially announce it first?

All I know is that this 'might not necessarily be another false dawn', maybe watch this space this afternoon methinks...

When I know more, so will you but for now I need some air, where is that dog, walkies... Hopefully something can develop while I am out and then having lunch!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

pompeyrug

pompeyrug
heh, they removed it pretty quick, by the time i saw it on newsnow they had pulled the article, but was in time to see the article linked on their homepage.... a refresh later and it was gone!
Bowlsey
I've had an email the fella who wrote the article confirming something will be announced this afternoon! As always i'm still going to wait for something official from the club before i start celebrating.
SUAC51
that kind of news 'should' be broke on the official site first, so i ma just hoping that is why it has been pulled and something will be announced this afternoon...
pompeyrug

fatbloke
lol Blue thats true but maybe, just maybe their planning to run the club properly O_o lol
pompeym@
Different story Fatbloke, same theory but original one was highlighted as an Exclusive! Just have to wait now......Christ this is testing my patience

My mate in Dubai says Storrie is trying to put a short term consortium together to buy time whilst SAF guarantees loans but takes over eventually. my mate says Standard bank want their money not guarantees. Saf problem is his money is based on property which no one is buying; Storrie's problem is he has much stigma that follows him and he is not well regarded outside football. Lol maybe he would make a good banker

As a new investor of Potsmouth Football Club I would just like you to know that Chix will be proved right before 5pm tonight when you will all see for yourself that the Germans have indeed all landed.. Thing is we all have a 9% stake so our identities will remain confidential .. well most of us anyway - Love and kisses
Your New Investors - Berlin


Jeez that sounds promising .. See who said everything would turn out ok .. The deal is done boys.. Prepare for a good afternoon ..
Chix
hahahaha!
SUAC51
Your New Investors… Ha ha ha. I don't really care who comes in - just put up some cash so we can build a new ground or on FP and some money to get some bodies in. Threadbare is an understatement.
stillthewhizz
Ja das ist gut, ya?.... Ich bin ein hoping
pentonpompey

nodster

Chix

plymouth graham
Yep Rolf IS involved.. and 'Jake the Peg'..
Chix
Theres a new article up in place of the exclusive: http://www.arabianbusiness.com/565335-portsmouth-new-investors-coming-today
SUAC51

Chix

Chix
Rolf's first job is to paint the future of PFC .. 'can you see what it is yet?'
Chix
lol, shut up chix :p
Bowlsey
Well the Telegraph are also claimingthat it will be announced today and signed by the end of the week. So it will be an afternoon of refreshing newsnow! Who will be first to read the article???
sneakay
HAHAHA nice chix and 5pm you say... YAY lol
pompeym@
Peter Storrie to make up the lies, and Fred Dinenage to report them on Meridian Tonight. I'd welcome that, if it means an end too all this SAF pulling out rubbish. "Signed by the end of the week" - So it will be finished just before the opening race at London 2012.
.Andrew.
You have managed to outfarce the farce that is SAF's, Grimms fairystorrie!! I just looked out of my window and a herd of Pigs have just flown by!!!
Mike1954
It's like waiting for an egg to hatch after sitting on it since may, finally some cracks seem to be appearing. Not many of us thought we'd see Storrie emerge from it though.
PompeyFrippy
Dont forget the Germans Frippy !
Chix
Perhaps we're being funded through Nazi gold?
hammersmithblue
chix... your not meant to make more than one account are you ;-)
pompeycarpet
if at 5.30 pm nothings happened ill just go back to the numbness that ive been feeling since may, and check again tomorrow...!
ruffcider
I think your an hour out Cider!
paultsmouth
Storrie is so stupid that if he had a consortium he would probably try to buy Crouch and Defoe for £40m, offer Sol Campbell £150k a week, try to buy Johnson for £25m and get Ronaldo to come on a free so he could be by the seaside!!!
Mike1954
A bit harsh Mike...but see what you mean
hammersmithblue
paultsmouth so itll be announced around 6/6.30?
ruffcider
Hammersmithblue, to much angst re: Saf, and to much sun today has made me cynical!!
Mike1954
mr saf.....please get your act together. you don,t want championship football nor do the suppoters deserve it, it does look that your leaving it too late though?
