Now its YOUR turn!

Now its YOUR turn!

It is pretty simple now, we seem to have been given a 7-day reprieve based on the assumption that, despite being 'insolvent' - HMRC's words, not mine, although lets face it we ARE broke - we do have 'TWO firm offers on the table for the club.'

This 7-days, will actually be 9-days as the earliest date available is Friday 19th, so a week Friday, although we have to provide documentation to the courts by Wednesday, we either PROVE that we can get the money that is owed or I think that it most likely is that, we WILL be done - HMRC are going for the throat, and they want a kill here...

Those in court today have got us some time, the time they wanted, albeit not as much as they wanted but WHY Mark Jacob and in particular Daniel Azougy were present is beyond me, especially the later who was said to have been 'booted out of the club' last week!

As fans we have stuck by the club through thin and thin this season, and it has been mainly thin - yep, there have been some fights against people within the club but this was done with the best interests of the club at heart by those doing it. 'If' we live on it is vitally important that the whole lot at boardroom level are booted out, once and for all.

It has never been more apparent that EVERYONE is fighting from the terraces for the club than it was on Tuesday against Sunderland, and to be fair it was made VERY, VERY clear that the playing and coaching staff, and most of the staff in general really, are as much up for this fight - which to be fair in the main they have all season - as anybody, and this will remain the case until 'we are done' or 'we are down!'

There is ONLY so much we can do, as said we - and they, the players - will continue to do what we can but now it is down to the owners and those running us to do what they MUST do in the next 9-days, or that is that. It is time to PROVE that we DO have these two 'serious offers on the table to take over the club and clear our debts,' if this is happening lets make it happen, well start making it as things would not go through that quickly.

The clock is ticking and now this saviour NEEDS to step forward, if they do not before Friday's next court date, well Wednesday really, or at least provide the 'promise' that is needed to satisfy the courts then I do not think we will be getting another 'stay of execution' this axe will come down and that, as far as Portsmouth Football Club in this guise goes, will be that...

It certainly is time for the new buyer to put his money where Storrie's mouth has been for the past couple of days. Lets see what happens. (How long have we been saying lets see what happens, now?)

I was unaware and I am amazed to hear that Daniel Azougy was present at the hearing... Second thoughts, he represents Gaydamak.......What a crooked bunch... I am an extreme sceptic and I don't for one minute believe there are purchasers lined up, even for a pound.. Who in their right mind would take on 60m in debts (28m to Gaydamak), a decrepit old ground and a club destined for the lower reaches..... unless more shady deals and/or links to owners/directors who are frightened they will lose much...(including their freedom, once the HMRC checks the books)... Another of Storrie's stories...

I to believe Daniel Azougy was there on behalf of the Gaydamak clan to see if they will still have a chance to recoup the money that is owed to them. I also believe that Mr Chainrai will not let us go in to administration as he wants his dosh back as well. There will be a deal worked out with the supposedly new owners somewhere here!!!

I fear the worst & will happy to be proved wrong. Sasha was funded by his dad & we all know how he made some if his money. The arabs are full of camel ****. As stated it beggers belief that the pointless pair of Jacobs & Azougy are there. They certainly don't give a toss about us. Very scary stuff. l

I think this just highlights how complicated the whole financial mess is at the club! no wonder it is taking so long to sort out FFS. Whilst my love for PFC runs deep, I can understand HMRC's concern about the whole situation, and all of the local businesses and contractors that are out of penny because of this mess.....Too right we need a messiah.....Part of me is glad that I am not going to St.Fairies on saturday, as they will have a lot of "banter" to chuck at us this time!!!!

We've been saying it for a long time, but now it's really 'make or break' week. Perhaps a good win against Soton will convince a potential buyer that we're realistic FA Cup potential ;-)

I'm worn out today, I've been feeling so frantic since last night, when it seemed the players were saying goodbye and then I heard talks had broken down. FFS Chanrai, put the money in and keep the club afloat! I'm not putting my faith in these "new owners!" And if you can't do that - administration would save the club from liquidation, I'd take it. No more russian roulette. I never used to have high blood pressure - I have now!

They will make an example of us I think. More and more clubs are defaulting on tax bills these days, so I think by screwing a Premiership club over, it might highlight something to other clubs thinking of getting one over old taxman. Bad times, it's going to be a long old week!!
