So, this is our 'new level' then!

So, this is our 'new level' then!

The 'new level' that we were going to be taken to by Ali Al Faraj has indeed been found...

Sadly this new level is an all time LOW level!

This bunch of jokers that 'run' our club have, for a 2nd time in a few months been UNABLE to pay some of the players, with the club officially confirming this.

To make this all the more poor, not only have the club not officially put this on The Pompey Site this announcement was given to The Quay to announce!

A number of the players have not been paid, or at least not been paid their full amount, but it is 'said' this will come in the next couple of days.

I asked earlier what these people were doing for this club, well they - even though what went before was not their fault - are, on the face of it, doing VERY little to help prevent it from being run into the ground...

Some people have started talking about 'protests' or 'not going to games', for me this is not the way, I know it is hard to continue to pump money into the pockets of those that are not doing anything to help us but WILL not going to games really help?

Yep, protest, but protest in the right way.

This way being offering the full backing to the club to show those in charge, or someone else that could be, that the major draw for Portsmouth Football Club is THE FANS, these are the ones that will never die or roll over and will continue to offer the support that makes this club so special.

Maybe then, just maybe - you never know - someone that CAN appreciate this might be willing to help...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

You're right Dave. I was once in this sort of position with an employer. The inevitable happened less than a year later

This sort of thing can't carry on indefinitely. I've got a horrible feeling there's an end game being played out here, and it's not on the pitch. If we can't pay the players on time, what hope is there in clearing the debt, having a January transfer kitty and continuing to pay the players.

What on earth is going on? Why did our owners buy the club without the resources to run it? We are going to into administration, aren't we! This time last year we were in Wolfsburg. Now we're just deep in the ******.

And does this 'Al Faraj' person really exist at all? Has anybody ever seen him?

It's depressing, Corny, but that sounds about our lot. Let's face it, if these guys had the money and interest in Pompey they would have cleared up all our debts ready for a fresh start in January. They can't even foot the wage bill *!**?*

Along with you Tony, I have worked for three builders who having had 'Cash flow' problems, went belly up, all within 6 months. Luckily I got out in time, others weren't so lucky! I hope and prey it won't happen to us, but lets be fair! it wouldn't be a shock would it? If we hit the Fizzy, as I said a couple of weeks ago, then I would expect no other...Dark days indeed!!!

I thought the whole fit and proper person's test was ment to safeguard clubs from cowboys like these!!! I think the Premier League have alot to answer for because Al Fahim and Al Mirage certainly have been nothing but trouble for the club!!!!!!!!!

In defence of Smith

Lowe is aiming high

Having marked his Pompey debut with a goal - within 10 minutes for the reserves against Exeter - Jamal Lowe was on the bench to face Leyton Orient and came on at half time.

Riley Explains Postponements

It doesn't happen often in the Premier League or Championship thesedays, but League's 1 & 2 still suffer the odd postponement owing to the weather and Mike Riley...

Finest in the Football League

I don't hide how highly I rate Chaplin. I feel he's the best striker in league two - better than most in league one. Cook said he is the best goalscorer outside the Premier League.
