Storrie offered clubs full support

Storrie offered clubs full support

Following a statement issued on The Pompey Site from Peter Storrie himself this morning the club have now issued one that says he has the full support of the board - who will assist him in any way.

The statement said: 'the owner, Ali Al Faraj, the executive board and senior management of Portsmouth Football Club remain fully supportive of the club's chief executive officer Peter Storrie.

'The club has been fully co-operative with all enquiries from all parties. We will help in any way possible in assisting Peter to defend the allegations and to help clear Peter's name at the earliest possible opportunity.

'Peter Storrie has been a respected figure in football for 20 years and a key figure in the rise of Portsmouth Football Club in becoming an established Premier League club during his seven years' service.'

Right, Storrie has said his piece and the club there part so, and without sounding heartless, lets just hope that we do not hear anything else about this in the build-up to the Hull game - that could quite literally make or break out season?

As previously said, and again whilst I do not want to appear heartless, the priority for me is to ensure that Portsmouth Football Club is no longer affected by off the field events so this dragging on and acting as a distraction is not something that I want, and clearly feel we do not need.

I am, to coin a phrase, 'astonished' that if charges have been brought against people that Storrie is deemed the only party in this issue worthy of this, although of course being charged does not mean guilty - this has to be proven. But, and without being privy to all the ins and outs it seems a farce that everyone else seems to be getting off scot-free...

Why, oh why does this keep happening every week? We keep having games that are vitally important and other factors keep getting in the way to overshadow our preparations!

You just feel this will drag on & on. No doubt every account in the land would be charged for some discretion, creative accountancy of sorts. No doubt the MP's will hung for their recent fraud claims.

What's odd is that the revenue appear to have cleared the two directly involved and are concentrating on Storrie; either way as Rug says this just goes on and on.

If he was an MP he'd just have to stand up at a match and say 'sorry'! That's if he was guilty of course, and we mustn't presume he is, people are still innocent until proven guilty in this country, and long may it remain so. It's quite right that the club should offer their full support. If, and it doesn't bear thinking about, he did get found guilty though, I guess he'd fall foul of the league's 'fit and proper person' regulations and wouldn't be allowed to run a club any longer? Let's hope and presume he's not guilty, and it will be found that way. Mind you, protacted court proceedings dragging on aren't going to do the club and its reputation any favours, are they?

Just like happens to thousands of crooks charged every day, PS is the one they are charging cos he's the one who was unable to cover his tracks. presumably he has less aptitude than MM or HR for wriggling out of it. Still, if PS goes down, he'll bring the other two with him. Not saying that it would be worth it but, honestly, they're all a bunch of rogues otherwise they wouldn't be in the job. Nothing that happens at this club surprises me. You wait and see, we'll find out that we've signed a big burly centre half who turns out to be a woman called Rita.

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
