Sky sports news understands...

This is a line that we hear a lot, to be fair though when sky sports often does have the 'understands' a large amount of the time they are right, right?

Well they say: 'Ali Al-Faraj could complete his takeover of Portsmouth on Monday evening.

'The Saudi-Arabian businessman is in discussions with current Pompey owner Sulaiman Al-Fahim, who has failed to produce the necessary funds to run the club after only arriving in August.

'It was reported that a deal was expected on Wednesday, but it is now understood that talks, which also involve former owner Sasha Gaydamak, have proceeded productively and a conclusion could be reached by as early as Monday night.'

I say, until we have some written evidence on The Pompey Site nothing is done, although even then sometimes all is not as it seems is it!

I just hope and pray that this deal is concluded, and concluded swiftly without any 'hidden surprises' down the line.

All I ask it that we just have an easy life for once, one where we just get the good that I feel we deserve... If we can get this wrapped up tonight, bonus, if we have to wait a few more days so be it, lets - as I say - just get it done and get it done right, and with minimal fuss!

UPDATE

The latest 'Sky sports news understands' comments says that 'the neccesary documentation has been agreed and signed as Ali Al-Faraj edges closer to completing his takeover of Portsmouth.'

With them also saying: 'a conclusion to the takeover has now edged even closer as the paperwork is understood to have been finalised, with both parties happy with the terms.

'Former Pompey owner Sasha Gaydamak, who still owns land surrounding Fratton Park, has also given his required backing to the billionaire's impending arrival.

'Al-Faraj is rumoured to be prepared to invest heavily in Portsmouth and will make vast amounts of money available for the Premier League strugglers in the January transfer window.'

Although I again refer you to my own above mentioned thoughts...

If it happens it is really good news for the club in its entirety, who knows the mystical training ground and stadium might happen after all.

Thanks Merlin. Although Pompey have been kicked everywhere by the press most fans support your point of view. We could be about to move to another level

Fingers crossed.
