'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Official word does exist then...

With The Pompey Site up and running again, at least for now, the club has FINALLY 'officially confirmed' the departure of Mike Williamson to Newcastle.

No fee, no thanks or no good luck message was offered to Williamson with the following 'statement' issued...

Williamson Joins Newcastle

Mike Williamson has signed for Championship leaders Newcastle United.

The 26-year-old defender joined Pompey from Watford at the beginning of the season but did not make a first-team start for the Blues.

The former Torquay and Wycombe centre-back did make five appearances for the reserves, his last appearance coming in a 1-1 draw against West Ham earlier in the month.

Williamson has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Tyneside club.


The loan signing of Quincy Owusu-Abeyie, subject to 'international clearance' was also confirmed, with the following said along with some quotes from Quincy which I - with no offense meant - do not include...

Owusu Abeyie Joins Pompey On Loan

Pompey have signed Spartak Moscow striker Quincy Owusu-Abeyie on loan until the end of the season, subject to international clearance.

The 23-year-old has plenty of experience of English football, having played for Arsenal and Birmingham in the past.

And now he is looking forward to helping Pompey preserve their top-flight status.

During his time with the Russian outfit, Owusu-Abeyie - who can also play out wide - has also had loan spells with Celta Vigo, Birmingham and Cardiff.

He has represented the Netherlands at youth and under-21 levels but switched nationalities to play for Ghana and played for the Black Stars at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations.


Maybe we will get some 'official word' on Younes Kaboul and Asmir Begovic being sold in the not to distant future?

Then again we will probably see Younes pulling on the Spurs shirt again before this is 'confirmed!'

The mouse matt that my mouse is sat on has the Pompey crest with "Pompey" in big letters and the words "The South's only Premiership Team," good God this is only in name alone now as we come across like a tin pot organisation that is a million miles away from a 'Premiership' outfit...

But they are still OUR tin pot outfit, if only those 'running' us could understand how important it is to us!

My first reaction to all the goings on is that it is akin to being raped.. (if that is a good analogy).. I never thought I'd say this, but I really do hope the 'club that is calling itself Portsmouth FC' is wound up real soon. Corruption, greed, crooks, the laughing stock of the football public..do I need to go on? I am begging all creditors to join the revenues winding up petition and shut this joke down.. The ONLY thing I want to happen is that OUR ground (beloved Fratton Park) is fought for and kept somehow and purchased? by the Fans Trust... or begging the Football ombudsman, that it was illegally obtained under false pretences by crooks, liars, asset strippers, thieves.. I am convinced that the club has been bought to be 'asset stripped' hence the appointment of the convicted Azougy and his corruption. The club was bought by a consortium who as mans to buy and sell players making a tidy profit..and has been operating that way for some time.. The 'israeli agent' (forget his name) is really instrumental in all of this and probably is the man behind the consortium of asset strippers..The arab is just a figurehead in it for short-term profit (he has already admitted to the arab press).. It REALLY is time for the club to FOLD and re-form (even in the Southern league) as AFC Portsmouth..(I admire AFC Wimbledon) BUT we need to KEEP Fratton Park if at all possible.. We need the HEART put back into the club and let all these shady characters get their come uppance.. GET OUT OF OUR CLUB... POMPEY TRUST...TIME TO PETITION AND KEEP FRATTON PARK...

Exile, Graham & Tony, well said. Latest reports say that Storrie and Jacobs were not involved in the proposed transfers of Kaboul and Begovic, who is in charge?.
