Not content with the 'present', the current here and now of the 1st team being totally ripped apart, the shambolic state of the club is 'said' to be ripping apart our possible future generations too!
Media reports today 'claim', with The Express 'claiming' to have had youngsters talk to them - PORSTMOUTH FACE UP TO LOSING STARS OF FUTURE: here, saying that the academy guys are so fed up that many want to 'rip up their contracts and quit' the club...
Academy training sessions are believed to have been cancelled repeatedly this year with the weather being used as the reason for this, although 'sources claim' that this is because the club have 'stopped paying for pitch hire' so there is nowhere for them to train anyway?
'Apparently' the kids have also been told that they 'must get lifts off parents or hire taxis, which they must fund themselves, to get to the club and matches' from now on with 'buses that used to collect the schoolboys from various pick-up points have been cancelled.'
The response, apparently, from the club about the bus service, and the non-running of this, is that we 'have swapped bus contractors recently and any cancellation in service is down to the changeover period...'
Sorry, but 'if' this really was our response are people REALLY going to buy this? It just seems to be one excuse after another with it ALWAYS someone else's fault these day!
We DO have plenty of highly rated youngsters at the club that we WILL lose if the latest 'talk' about developments at the club proves true - and talk about the academy side breaking up has been doing the round for a while now, this started with the 'restructuring' of the academy coaching set-up last year...
I guess with EVERYTHING else virtually covered, almost daily, moving onto the 'future' of Portsmouth Football Club was inevitable at some time, and 'if' there is as much truth to this as some would have you believe then a bleak future is looking bleaker by the day.
The more the club is dragged through the mud the harder it will be to attract ANY talent, young or old, in the future as who will want to sign up to a club that is as high profile as we are - for all the wrong reasons!
If the self-destruct button is being hit can someone PLEASE just get on with it and hit this now, stop stumbling around in the dark! What is the saying - 'if we were an animal we would have been put down by now!'
PLAY UP POMPEY!
