Wanted - volunteers to hammer in the nails!

If anyone else is looking to get money from Pompey - which seems like trying to get blood from a stone - I suggest you get in that line pretty sharpish!

Nails are being handed out for our coffin and as Sol Campbell is no mug, he has taken up the option on his as he has looked to force himself nearer the front of that queue by handing in his writ over unpaid money yesterday.

Udinese have today confirmed that they are taking up the option on theirs as they have confirmed that they ARE taking us to court over unpaid money.

This money relates to Sulley Muntari's transfer to Pompey in the summer of 2007.

£3.5m of the £7m we signed him for is still owed and in a bid to get the money the Italian club have confirmed, to The News via a spokesman Gabriele Brune, that they are taking us to the Court of Arbitration for Sport: 'we are unable to make a comment on the transfer of Sulley Muntari at this time.

'This is because the matter has been referred to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. It is a matter for the court and we won't make any statement.'

I wonder what Friday will bring; hell we still have Thursday evening to get through first!

Roll up, roll up...

Do you all remember a time when 3.5 million was peanuts . . . . . . . . . . . . . that's the problem, it never was, we had been sold the dream that it was.

Makes you bl00dy well wonder, when who it was that bought us, had all this info in front of them of what was owed to who. How the hell can we not have settled this bill when we sold Muntari 18 months ago.

Matt, my thoughts also. Why can't the PL have a rule that if a player is sold on then any outstanding balance on the original transfer is paid immediately.

How much are we actually owed as a result of selling players; I bet payment is by installments and there are probably a number of installments outstanding.

Yes Oldblue it is another good point that answers a lot of the "Where's the money gone?" boo boy morons. Of the transfer takings since 2008 we have only yet received about 60% of them on the installments.

Where the HELL was our Chief executive when all this money was made and should have been paid? There won't be any more instalments coming to us. It was factored out ages ago and went into and has come out of gaydamaks pocket by now.

Gandor, according to HMRC our Chief Exec was salting large chunks of it away in hidden accounts in Monaco. Our chief exec says he can't have been involved cos at the time the money was paid into Milans account in Monaco Pete says he was on his hols in the Sth of France- erm Monaco- Sth of France- get a map and another alibi pete! I still think HMRC are using Milan and pot to *****in pete as a way to get Harry

Those of you wondering where the money went, should really should have seen the Gold/Sullivan interview on SSN, when they were installed at Upton Park this week. They laid it out very plainly...a club like ..say Pompey, sell a player.. say like Mullins, to Real Madrid for say £10ml over 3 three years, - stop laughing I am being serious…but then they sell that debt to a finance company for £8ml cash. …which can go anywhere, but probably not to the club we bought the player from as the sell on clause. S&G also stated that a certain Premier League club that they looked at had debts in excess of the company’s total asset value, and subsequently and confidently predicted that they would go out of business this season..they did’nt say who that club was....but it doesn’t take much thinking and guessing to guess just who that might be. However Jonathon Pearce on Monday sated that a bigger club than Pompey is also in very serious debt crisis, but that may have been WHU before S&G took control.. I hate being this harborager of negativity but I did say I could not see why Gaydamak wanted anything to do with Pompey other than to build luxury flats in an up and coming waterfront city…and to continue the family business of Money Laundering. I do think that we will go bust, be expelled from the PL, and then taken over by Pini Zahavi, as a shop window club for young African and South American talent. Which can be done easier and more cost effective at a championship level. Remember, the big clubs always send youth out to smaller clubs in a lower division; this would work the same way.
