Gaydamak has his, brief, say...

The circus that is Portsmouth Football Club continues to 'stumble' through town - the latest chapter saw Pompey claim that customs 'got it wrong' in relation to the winding up petition yesterday, beggars belief that we can even go down this road to be honest as customs DO NOT get it wrong...

Everyone seems to be blaming everyone else and it is everyone else's fault bar anyone else's...Ok, maybe 'pointing the finger(s) of blame', or looking to find out who really is to blame is not going to help but SOMEONE stepping up to the poxy plate and sorting things out is what someone HAS to do as sorting out the mess is all that matters now.

Now we see former owner, although if he is 'former owner' is anybodies guess, Sacha Gaydamak today speak 'for the first time' since 'leaving' the club saying that he is as 'frustrated' as we are at the current state of affairs at the club, or 'confusion' as it is labelled by The Guardian.

Sacha Gaydamak casts doubt over Portsmouth owners - here.

The claims are, and have been for some time, that he is owed at least £28m by the club - the first instalment of £9m is due in the New Year, but he does not know if/when he will get paid: 'I join in the frustration of the supporters, and I would like to know who the ultimate beneficial owner is, what plans they have for the future, and if I am to be paid.'

It seems that Sacha has spoken in-depth to FansOnline, which I am sure you have all seen as well, that makes for interesting reading.

Although what I would say is I doubt your frustration quite matches ours Sacha as we love Portsmouth Football Club, this is our club and we cannot walk away, with or without countless millions 'profited', or maybe even lost, from the club - although I would completely agree that knowing who the 'ultimate beneficial owner' is would be VERY nice!

God only knows, and maybe he does not even know, what the hell is going on at Fratton Park anymore...

This nonsense has been going on for nine months now (more than a year since Gay first wanted to sell) and I'm becoming immune to all the gossip, lies and disinformation. It's now a case of 'what will be, will be' and the real truth will only come out when either PFC finally collapses or (hopefully) massive funds are put into the club. PS should have gone to Australia as a convict and left to rot there.

Gaydamek got us in this mess in the first place. All he cares about is getting his money back. And if the club does go into administration, he's likely to lose out on the millions that he is owed - or some of it anyway. That's the only reason he hasn't forced the issue yet, not because he's being nice to us. But we all want to know who the owner really is!

OK. Just read Sacha's statement....It is well written and will probably go someway to soften many peoples opinion of him !! WELL NOT ME MATEY !!! You may well be "Owed" money by the people/person that bought the club off you, however.....you failed to mention where all the money went that you made of the selling of our top class players ??????????? COME ON SACHA - WHERE IS THAT DOSH ??? You may share my frustration.....but I get frustrated when the price of a Chicken Balti goes up, not when I don't see another click on the Million Pound column of my Bank Statement!!!! If the club is going to benefit from all of those transfer payments then fine, but if not, you're expectation of another £28M is a little rich (to put it V V V Mildly) SO tell us, what has happened to all of that money ???????

I dont thik we can doubt what Sacha is saying to be honest, it adds up to why he didnt sell to Faraj... We all wanted Faraj as Storrie said they were taking this club to a new level, he even cast doubt over fahim and gaydamac as they done a deal behind his back. But it appears he was ringht, as his lawyers failed to find assurances, and now in charge they still fail to assure creditors, players wages, the Premier league or HM customs, so soryy but he is being honest in my eyes. The question now is how do we get these lasy buggers to give us answers and stop burying their heads in the sand. I propose a sit in after the coventry game all fans singing, "we will not - We will not be moved...We Want Answers" or something similar so we become a nuisance? But how do we organise that or something similar?

I agree ninjatim, Sacha IS a crook, there should be no doubting it with his background. I even read now that Al Ali has employed one of Sacha's Dads finance guys, as a troubleshooter who has been banned from practicing because he has a criminal record. I wonder who recommended him to Al Ali then? Come off it Sacha, your a double dealing, lying git, without an honest bone in your body, and you have been spending to much time with HR & PS. You don't think anyone with a modicum of intelligence take's anything you say as straight.

Please be Real Madrid...please be Real Madrid!

Ok, despite the fact Real Madrid must 'owe us one' for Diarra, I'm a realist with who Pompey will face...I'll settle for a pre-season friendly at Fratton being against Barcelona!

On this day in history...25th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 25th May.

We know Danny you want to stay!

In case we had forgot Hollands has reminded us of his desire to stay with Pompey! I'm not 'desperate' either way in many ways but sorting this quickly would be best for all concerned.

Three more pre-season games announced

'Glamour ties' are loved but pre-season is about fitness and form so it doesn't matter if it's Barcelona or Bognor... Then again a trip to the Nou Camp wouldn't be turned down!
