To the court it goes!

To the court it goes!

Pompey's future continues to hang in the balance, after talks to stop the winding-up court action against us on Wednesday proved fruitless.

2-days of talks with HMRC broke down today, and it seems this happened earlier as had been 'reported' by TalkSport, and others, on Tuesday afternoon - something that was denied by the club.

So, now we await our fate...

We came back from the dead to snatch a WELL DESERVED point against Sunderland tonight, in what 'could' be seen as a 'turning point' in our season, but could it have all be in vain?

Maybe the courts will be kind to us, then again maybe not? But lets hope and pray they are kind to us - and if they are then let the fight goes on, and we WILL fight to the bitter end!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I used to be a Course Secretry at the University and one day I had to fill in a form for a student who had applied for a job. If I had answered in the affirmative for every question asked on the form, the result would have been that the person was an absolute *********. The job applied for? Yep, you got it - a Tax Inspector.

I find it quite bizarre, that the team that Pompey played in the infamous Fa Cup Final of 2008 was Cardiff -and they are facing a winding up order on the same day ! - I wonder what the odds of that were?

If the Judge has any compassion in him he will give Pompy a stay of excution for 3 months (end of season). The players and manager do not deserve to be kicked in the b$%ls any more. Tonight Pompy deserved the win and the deserve the win tomorrow as well.

Lets hope our guys were just trying to put off as a better option but produce the money tomorrow and sort things out. PUP xx

I don't see compassion as part of the judge's remit. I'm afraid he will look at the case solely on the facts and any legal precedent. It doesn't make financial sense for HMRC to wind us up at the first time of asking, but I worry that someone somewhere is trying to make a point and perhaps get their name in lights

Someone somewhere must have the money to stop this. Any new investors could be waiting in the wings to pick up the pieces if administration is confirmed. Vultures the fecking lot of them!

its a horrible, horrible feeling at the moment - feeling so powerless, which we are and just waiting...
my concerns are that 'if' people are waiting in the wings to take over then why not make themselves fully known now? what benefit would they get from picking us up dirt cheap when in admin? they can get us for nothing now so long as they take on debts - the only advantage, to them, if we are in admin is that they will see debts reduced by this...

Good luck Ben!

In an ideal world Davies would have agreed a new deal and stayed with Pompey next season but Grimsby have been able to offer him the stability of a two-year deal we couldn't.

Versatile former Arsenal man in on trial?

Deacon, who started out with Arsenal has been with Stevenage and Crawley with the latter releasing him at the end of last season. Cookie will 'run the rule' over him in pre-season?
