'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Gaydamak said...

'Pompey, for me, is the finest club in the world and this is just the beginning,' Gaydamak said.

'The achievement of Pompey over the last few weeks has been fantastic and I am relieved we have not been relegated. I am delighted at the way everyone at the club has shown commitment and spirit to achieve our objective, which seemed to fade away up to the last minute of the Manchester City game.

'I would like to extend my hearty appreciation to all the staff working behind the scenes who have remained focused throughout, and whose effort and dedication should never be underestimated.'

Gaydamak was also keen to pay a 'special tribute' to Mandaric. 'One cannot fail to notice the respect and adulation shown by so many people to Milan for his contribution and dedication to Pompey through thick and thin.'

He added: 'I would like to thank Harry, a football legend and pro, for a job well done, and the players, who have proven to be all about heart, spirit, unity, skill and excellence and have shown their true blue colours when the going got tough.'

The Fratton Park faithful were also applauded. 'Pompey supporters turn every game into a home game and are respected up and down the country for their fantastic support,' Gaydamak said.

gaydamak has lived in london for years so i expect his english is as good as yours jono, and i think he means we are the finest supporters rather than greatest in the success stakes

Another season for Pompey in the Prem and another dose of Coca Cola 1 for the boys from the Forest....maybe next season.

Listen to him speak jono, he can talk rather eloquently in english. And i think he's on about the FANTASTIC pompey support, which is unequalled and unrivalled for the way we get behind our team.
