Pompey 'provisionally' set March court date

Pompey 'provisionally' set March court date

Pompey 'look' to have gained a little more time before we go before the courts again, if we do...

The club DOES need to compile a statement of affairs by next Wednesday although a statement on The Pompey Site says that we will not be back in court until Monday March 1st - with this a provisional date set.

Further talks, advanced as they put it, are 'said' to be ongoing with potential buyers - the statement can be seen below...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Portsmouth Football Club has been informed by the High Court today that the hearing of the winding up petition against the club by HMRC has been provisionally fixed for Monday, March 1.

The club is working towards bringing new finance into the business and is in advanced talks with prospective buyers.

Can't wait ... Suppose this makes no difference really as the 'statement of financial affiars' has to be submitted next week no matter what

Look forward to these "new owners" being unveiled. Not holding my breath though.

I know we have heard it before but that prince/ambassador guy is supposedly worth between 12-15 BILLION. The difference between him and Al faraj is this guy is real,fingers toes and eyes crossed.

This could be just the lifeline we need. If we can produce an outstanding statement and cash flow plan, we can use the extra time for FAPP tests and due dilligence on any new parties looking to invest. Here's just hoping we get it right this time..

lets hope so dave eh...
tracy, i have been 'pretty sceptical' about possible investment coming (hence my rather cynical 'Further talks, advanced as they put it, are 'said' to be ongoing' above) altho i have this evening become 'alittle' more optimistic that this could well come, much will be down to owners past and present...

Having seen so many false dawns & broken promises, we need some serious good news. Everything crossed.

Dave, St David is the Welsh patron Saint...just hope he is not out for revenge for May 17th 2008, of course if he is a saint he will know that "Vengeance is Mine sayeth the LORD"

Hope Pompey survive as a club but I don't see why you should receive the TV money and not other clubs like us who are also short of cash. Add to that sacking Hart and replacing him with Grant who must be on a bigger salary when you knew you were in trouble, signing new players like Tosic when you're supposed to be cutting costs! You seem to be living on hope that you'll get another rich saviour when declaring administration now, taking the 10 points deduction and saving your club long-term would surely be the honourable thing.
