Transfer embargo STAYS in place?
According to The News the premier league have REFUSED to lift the transfer embargo that Mark Jacob said he felt would be lifted 'imminently'...
Pompey had to prove that they had paid off all current debts to British and overseas clubs, which we are thought to have managed to do via the passing on of TV money, but it is 'claimed' that a fee to Udinese for Sulley Muntari has proven our undoing.
Is this REALLY a surprise guys?
In all honesty did anyone really think that we would see this lifted - and even if we did would anyone really have expected us to spend money?
I still think that we 'should' be able to bring in free agents and do some loan moves as we are so severely hamstrung, and most probably will be even worse off come the end of the month it is hardly a level playing field is it...
We were questioned by the PFA recently about our actions, non-payment of wages - which IS bad - meaning that the 'integrity of the game' could be questioned as 'perhaps' our players would not give everything meaning that the outcome of some games could be affected due to this.
So, I say does the continued restraints in not allowing us to AT LEAST register free agents or bring in some loans not bring into question the 'integrity' of the premier league?
Is, what is most likely 'probably' going to be a real, real thread bare side not going to be questioned by some opponents we face, compared to what others might have already faced?
Yep, I know it is clutching at straws, and we must remember that those previously and currently in charge are the source of the problems, but this only seems to further my thoughts - which were said to be paranoid - that the premier league has NO intention of giving us any help whatsoever as they are desperate for us to get relegated so they can rid 'the best league in the world' of our foul stench...
Of course things could be made a whole lot easier if those running us now just put up what is needed!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
