Lens taking legal action to get paid

Lens taking legal action to get paid

Word has grown around cyber and media worlds over the past 24-hours or so that Lens are taking legal action against Pompey for unpaid fees.

The French club have become so increasingly frustrated at the fact that we are 'said' to have failed to keep up with payments - although to be honest it sounds about right! - for Nadir Belhadj and pulled out of a deal to buy Aruna Dindane outright after he played 'X amount' of games that they are looking for the courts to settle this...

Lens president Gervais Martel is quoted in The Mail as saying: 'we are taking action through the European football tribunals as well as civil courts.'

Is this really a surprise? And is it really that hard to believe?

We KNOW that PFC has not paid clubs etc., so why should this be limited to English clubs alone...

'If/when' we get sorted out who in their right mind is going to do transfer dealings with Pompey again?

A 'disturbing' thing also included in that Mail report 'claims' that John Utaka is on £80,000 per week!

As much as I would HOPE that is not true, again, in all honesty knowing we have dished out some shockingly high wages over the past few years would that really be a surprise...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

How deep does the rotten core of our club go? One thing out of all this, if we get stripped again, we will drop no doubt, how far is another matter, we could fall very far before things get better again, look at Leeds and scum, thing is I'm almost tempted to say I would swap with either of those right now!

HARRY REDKNAPP ! i know he has bought players like diarra and johnson where the club has made big profits on. but he evens this out and beyond with crap players on big money + long contracts like lauren,traore,utaka,nugent.

I moved away from Portsmouth just over two years ago but, true to form, continue to support my team from afar. What really hurts is the lack of information that is coming out of the club - and now we are really seeing what the value/cost of winning the FA Cup was. Not saying that I was very proud to see Sol lift the cup, or play AC Milan at Fratton Park - but would I trade that for administration - not sure? There is a deep rot in the club that someone has to get a handle on quickly before it is too late. Al Faraj was supposed to be rolling in money - so why does he keep getting loans. Is this all a game being played at he expense of loyal Pompey fans?? I am genuinely worried

I've said all along administration; and i've not changed my mind. Something is badly badly wrong and rotten at our club, and the stench is overwhelming!

Can't disagree with any views here. It is a very sad mess at FP and I can see no way out.

I believe we will go into administration but all the time SG has a toe in the running of the club he will strip as much as possible first, which makes it all the worst as it is just a time bomb waiting to happen. Also for anyone trying to blame twitchy for the mess we're in is ridiculous, i would love to hate him, but i am also positive he had noting to do with wages, length of contracts or even transfer fees. Altho he did sign a few duds, but that never put us in debt.
