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...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
