Hart thinks takeover is 'imminent'...

Hart thinks takeover is 'imminent'...

...so it must be, right?

Yep I know we have all heard it before as 'the takeover' has been 'imminent' several times.

Although, for me, the difference this time is the fact that Paul Hart is speaking more openly about it, which suggest he really knows something is happening, coupled with the fact that we released a statement on Wednesday - we would not have done so if it really was not close.

Peter Storrie knows better than anyone that talking needs to stop, and the sooner the better, so again this seems to back up the 'say nothing unless it is close' train of though.

Like I say, for me, I do not think that we would have said anything if we were not close to completion, well at least I hope not as we cannot keep hearing this and that with nothing happening...

It is all guess work, 'rumour', 'gossip' and 'speculation' but with so many names being bounced around as being part of the consortium, or various consortiums, if they each took a smaller stake then they do not have to be disclosed do they! So, for the time being - unless they increase their stake in time - they do not need to do any fit and proper checks, they can remain undisclosed!

The problem that I see is the one where we have so many people involved in a group(s), how do you then decide which way, or vision, you take?

Is someone left to solely guide the lot acting in everyone's best interests, or do they all have a say...

You would just have to hope that each of them shares the same vision, a vision to look after the club, the fans and do things the right way!

Whatever though, whatever is happening lets get it done, lets stop messing around and wrap up this whole 'takeover' business so we can bring in some much needed reinforcements...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Agreed we need a takeover for short term survival then the consortium must decide a vision and leader; don't want a Gillette v Hicks Liverpool affair

oh what i'd give for this is all be over.... but your right they either need to appoint a 'leader' to guide the club (which i expect might be the case with storrie) or each have the same vision, cause Liverpool is in a right mess atm and i'd rather not see that happen

If Pompey need some emergency players, if this isn't finished by window's close, then i am willing to step up, and serve my team. Im still young, and could sit on the bench. Give me a call Paul Hart. On a serious note: I really hope this does get sorted before next week.
