Just when we are all keeping our eyes peeled for ticket information for our forthcoming sortee into Southampton the Official Pompey site returns the message

Service Unavailable

Rumours start to fly about why and very few can believe or accept that it is due to non-payment, but as reported on other fan sites It is true

A reliable source confirmed that Portsmouth F.C.s Official Site is unavailable due to non-payment.

The ever increasing list of people, companies and utilities that are (rumoured to be) not getting paid or are being trimmed down is becoming a little embarrassing

a Taxi firm

Coach company

electircicity for pitchside hoarding

the fans marquee

the admin staff

the players

It's a sorry state of affairs at Fratton towers .. and I can not see an end to it .. Can you ?

The staff and player wages are due on Monday .. what chance have they got!

i can 100% assure everyone that this IS over a non-payment to the t'internet people - wages going through is doubtful and that 'possible' mass walkout could be on...

Hate to say I told you so...I just can't see where they are going to get the wages from for this month. Nothing has changed since last month or the month before to instil any confidence that we can get out of this...

OK.... The Premier League, have lifted an Embargo on Pompey despite us not paying more bills within Days???? Correct me if i am wrong, but Surely this means the Premier League Knows another takeover is in the offing? Else why the hell would they have said yes to the embargo?

The heights to which the ineptitude of these new owners reaches is infinite. Remember what Marc (liar) Jacob said last month "the players and staff not being paid will not happen again" I ask you what is the point of having him as a spokesman if a) he just lies b) He actually doesn't have a clue what he is talking about c) He has never met his Boss, so he doesn't have any clear idea what to talk about on his behalf. I have to say I just can't fathom out how this bunch of total winkers expect to manage their way through these crisis's. They are so bad at basic management, that I truly believe that they are making things worse through their sheer incomptence. I am certain that Portsmouth University have got some students doing Business studies who with some work experience at Fratton Park could sort all this out. I am being serious.

Caterers arrived at the training ground on monday and did a proper "take away". So you can add CATERING to the list Chix. Might as well get rid of any PR related people at the park, as they are redundant!

How can they recruit a player yesterday in the knowledge that they can't even feed the cat? What a bloody joke. I've had enough now, bring on the administrators, get the clowns out and let's try and rebuild the club from scratch.

Portsmouth have also been banned from playing away games, and home midweek evening KOs. This being the offical coach having been repossesed, and not enough fuel in the tank for the return journey home. Evening KOs have been banned as they cannot afford to pay the electricity to power the floodlights... An offical spokesman was unavailable for comment, as the telephone line has been cut off

You know, the Pompey board could switch from drinking stout to cider and the media will say it's courtesy of the "club alcohol budget" being downgraded. Or less blades of grass on the "pitch maintenance bill". Reduced decibels in the "wind blowing through the ground finances". No wonder I'm gonna leave OU to be a journo. The job is as easy as *****.

Can just hear it now, how twitchy brought Kaboul in and how he signed Begovic back in 2003 and through him and him alone has got them to where they are now. Oh how lucky we are twitchy, now fck off and leave our club alone.
