SAF's message to the fans
It appears as though the message has well and truly sunk-in with SAF, as having previously failed to address the Pompey fans at all he has done this a couple of times in the last few days, including a 'message to fans' in the past hour or so...
His message on The Pompey Site reads: 'I can assure supporters that there is a plan in place backed by firm commitments that will bring £50m into Portsmouth Football Club over the next two to three weeks.
'As the owner, I am the first to understand that the club's financial situation is of great concern to everyone associated with Portsmouth Football Club. But I am confident that the club's finances will be fully stabilised over the next few weeks and we can move the club forward.
'Our priority at this stage is to ensure that we stay in the Premier League and we must focus on this. If we pull together and apply the necessary effort, we will see team performances improve and we will move up the Premier League. We are still at an early stage of the season.
'I am proud to be the new owner of Portsmouth Football Club and I am committed to taking this club forward. I will invest prudently in players and infrastructure and I will ensure that Portsmouth Football Club remains loyal to its values, in particular through its engagement with the local community.'
He has asked us to judge him in November, he certainly seems to be finally making the right noises directly to us - so we just have to wait and see what happens, although this seems 'encouraging', right...
