Takeover possible, but NOT Gaddafi?

Takeover possible, but NOT Gaddafi?

The 'Pompey sources' are out in force today!

A 'source' had been speaking to The Mirror, but this has been denied, as has a possible takeover by Saadi Gaddafi - although another takeover, with 'interest' from '2 or 3' is 'said' to be on...

This particular 'Fratton Park source' told ESPN Soccernet: 'we have been talking with a new potential owner, in fact we have been talking to two or three interested parties, and one of them is interested enough to want a second round of talks, and we shall know soon enough whether they will make an offer.'

'Reports' that Gaddafi Jnr could be on the verge of taking over have been 'strongly denied' though: 'is this the silly season? Of course we have not. We've got enough problems as it is.'

With a 'close aid of Ali Al Faraj' following this up and being quoted as saying: 'we know nothing about Saadi Gaddafi.'

So, we 'could' be seeing a 4th takeover in the weeks ahead then?

We have had almost as many owners this season as we have signings!

Although payment of wages going through on time this month is AGAIN NOT looking very good...

'Representatives of Al Faraj' are quoted as telling Soccernet: 'who knows? We hope so. This month the wages fall on a Sunday, so they need to be paid this Friday or Monday. Will they be late again? As I said, who knows?'

Glad that they cleared that one up - I feel much more 'assured' by this now!

'If' this is genuine, and this is the attitude, then it is well past time for them to move on methinks, right?

If they cannot even assure, yet again, that wages will be paid, and 'if' the latest 'word on the street' that a takeover could happen is true, lets just hope it can, and sooner rather than later!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

What did I say about wages at the start of the month?...I'll be amazed if they're paid on time.

Williamson is a probable panic sale to help meet the wages.

I hope each of the investors agree to the recent plan and purchase the club only to sell it to the second party and then they sell the club to the third party, giving Pompey an irretrievable football record for the most owners in one season. In fact, who cares about survival? I just want this to happen instead.

As for Adolf Gadaafi Jr. link, bear in mind that Man City flew out white doves to promote the definitely very friendly hospitality of human-rights abuser and part-time crooner Thaksin Sinatra.

If the rumours are true them make it happen soon. But i think it may well be too late to save this season and will have to build in the championship. I can see kaboul, James and williamson going but i dont think the embargo will be lifted until pompey prove they can pay the wages and any other debts until the end of the season. So all this talk about the embargo being lifted is yet another false dawn. if the players go without the embargo being lifted then we well may see nugent coming back and the youth team players filling the bench.

meanwhile.. at the Pompey board meeting
"I know!" exclaims Storrie, "why don't we have a takeover this week?"
"Nah, Peter the supporters will never fall for that a third time" responds SAF
"I think it could be funny, just imagine their faces" s*******s Aguzy
Across the room Al-Fahaj looks puzzled as he scratches his head and looks at the few odd coppers and broken piggy bank in front of him .."err sorry boys" he mutters "I seem to have spent the players wages on sweets again!"

Actually I retract my 'adolf' comment. I've been reading a few other Pompey fansite articles and one of them pointed out that anything bad and nasty Libya has done internationally was done when Saadi was barely in his mid-teens, including weapons transfers to the IRA, igniting attraction from American bombers, firing Scud missiles hither and thither. Saadi, however, said in 2002 that Libya doesn't need to feel threatened by Israel, and they should move on. So in effect: he's probably O.K. It's bizarre learning about this kind of history from Pompey sites...

The other rumourof course going around is that if players don't get paid on Friday that they will walk. Be interesting if they turn up at Eastlands for Sunday then.

The new board of directors could read Sadam Hussein , Chemical ally and None other Colonel Gadafi. Even they would probably pass the fit and proper persons test. Then we could launch scuds bought from a room out the back of the pompey shop at opposing fans. Nothing would surprise me this year!!!
