Two becomes four?!

Two becomes four?!

Portsmouth Football Club having a future is something that we must now turn our attentions back too, yep we DID spank Scum 4-1 in their own backyard, and yep they can NEVER take that away from us so we must continue to savour this, but, and not trying to bring anyone down, the threat that this club could be taken away from us is still a very real one...

In the courts last week Pompey's lawyers told the judge that we had 2 serious offers on the table, prior to the scum game - talking to The News - Peter Storrie 'claimed' that this interest had grown to 4: 'we have two more interested now, so hopefully something will come out of this.

'I am very optimistic.

'One of them is a very serious interest, and I will find out more after this game.

'We will continue to fight hell and water to keep this club alive.'

He also paid 'tribute' to the premier league for their help so far and said they are being kept in 'regular contract' with to be kept 'up-to-date with the latest proceedings.'

Speaking of the premier league though we now know, following a 'statement' from them, that they WILL NOT help us out with an advancement of parachute payments: 'the Premier League has very specific rules regarding what happens if a club suffers an insolvency event.

'We will not act outside those rules or in a way that undermines the competition.'

They WILL be praying big time that our 'statement of affairs' documentation to the courts this week pleases everyone or they will have chaos on their hands 'should' we go to he wall!

We can only hope that 1 of these '4 interested parties' shows enough interest to come in and do what is needed, and this intent is enough to please the courts this week to give us a 'little' more time or I suspect that HMRC will look to bring forward that March 1st court date...

'Word on the street' has it that a takeover 'might' be secured by Thursday? Although - if true - this is good news, as has been pointed out before Wednesday and our 'statement of affairs' is due to the courts would be better. Then again you would hope - again if true - that proof this is happening would be enough to appease them, right?

It might end up as 8, but I sincerely hope that Terry Vegetables is not one of them. He might have bought us for a quid last time, but he would need a lot more now. Pompey have been on the brink before, so let's hope that we can again survive. I once followed Farncombe - gone, Guildford City - gone, so please God not Pompey as well.

If you can cross it, cross it. We need the real deal, no mirages, no johnny come latelys.
15/02/2010 09:24:00
just go back to HOPING something happens guys DO NOT expect anything to materialise...
15/02/2010 09:35:00
Make it 5, I've declared my interest ;-) As you say Rug, Wednesday is the crucial day.
15/02/2010 09:37:00
One of these 4 is bloody Al Fahim, no please not again!
15/02/2010 10:02:00
Al Fahim? You serious? Has he suddenly got his £50m? lol
15/02/2010 10:30:00
hopefully al fahim aint the person unless he has some serious wealthy backers. Hope we get a good one but not a man city one who buys the best players as it will just ruin the game.

i am not quite sure 'how' SAF would have suddenly come into money, but 'if' - as unlikely as it might seem - that he has then i think he would make a decent owner, i would like to know where his money has suddenly come from tho...
15/02/2010 11:23:00
Rug I second that. At least he seems to have got a passion for the club. I hope he's found the money to support that passion.
15/02/2010 12:10:00
SAF would get backers without doubt but the state of the Dubai economy at present suggests it might be difficult. Better the devil you know eh?

No retirement plans

Doyle might have turned 35 recently, which in reality means he's in the final throws of his playing career, but he's not ready to call it a day with Pompey (or otherwise) anytime soon.

On this day in history...20th October

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 20th October.

Linganzi presence needed

I've liked Rose since he signed in the summer but perhaps the former Oxford midfielder lacks the physicality Pompey sometimes need, which is why Linganzi has come in of late.

Pompey 'sent a message' at Plymouth

I'm still not completely sure if we should see Plymouth as 'two-points dropped?' Although I'm learning towards it being a result Pompey will be happier with than our hosts.
