Mark Jacob has finally delivered that 'statement' he was going to give, although it is not so much a statement more a few lines on the latest shambles of non-payment of players and how the 'trauma' at the club is going to 'apparently' be ending...
Jacob has told sky sports that the money to pay the players is 'waiting in his account,' which begs the question if it has only just arrived and is ready to go now WHY had we said it was there before and would be paid Tuesday and then Wednesday, when clearly it was not?
Well, he says this will be paid tomorrow, Thursday: 'the funds are already in my account and they have been authorised to go, so depending on the banking system the funds will be with the players on Thursday morning.'
So, we now just wait and see - the players wages FINALLY arriving for the latest month that they have been late will be something at least!
He is also 'very, very confident' that a fresh injection of funds is on its way and wished to thank the fans of the club for their 'support' of the current administration during the 'one of two issues' that have happened recently: 'we're very confident this is the end of any trauma that the club has been suffering, not only in the last month or so but perhaps for the last couple of years.
'We're very, very confident there will be an injection of funds and I'd just like to place on record how supportive the fans have been over the period since the takeover despite one or two recent issues.
'The fans should be assured that the long-term future of Portsmouth is going to be secured.'
Well Mark YOU have gone on record as having said this, so IF things fail to materialise then it is your head that should roll! It is good that a 'statement' has been assigned to someone for a change so we know exactly where to point fingers should this not come off.
Lets just hope this latest 'assurance' proves true eh, but I must admit I will believe it when I see it now to be honest!
So, and as I say in the title, time WILL tell what happens next, or not - I want what he says to be the case but I cannot help but go with the 'I will not hold my breath' train of thought...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
