Storrie resigns as Chief Executive

Storrie resigns as Chief Executive


The Pompey Official Site was just carried the following statement

'Andrew Andronikou has announced that Peter Storrie, the chief executive of Portsmouth Football Club, has, after talks with his family and friends, decided it is in the best interests of the club for him to leave his full-time employment.

The administrators would like to thank Mr Storrie for his undivided assistance and support over the past few weeks.

Mr Storrie has pledged to continue to assist the club and the administrators on a range of matters, including the sale of the club, the FA Cup semi-final arrangements and other projects and will be remunerated accordingly.'


That news will please the vast majority of fans who believe that while he was not totally to blame for the club's current predicament he should have acted to prevent it as Chief Executive.

He told ESPN that he is hoping to stay in the game but 'I do need a break first, what has happened at Portsmouth has been exhausting, it has taken its toll, but I still love the game.'

He seems to be a good guy and I have believed him to always be doing his best for the club but,... It was he who introduced Al F who could bring us to new level and was around when things became unsustainable many months ago and nothing was done . For the sake of his reputation and for the sake of us all he should explain what his responsibillities and knowledge was and also what did the previous 'owners' portray to him what they were about and had. Which as we have discovered over a long painful time has been sweet fanny Adams. If he comes across clean I would still stand by him.

"Despite working non-stop to keep this club alive for the last 14 months, they need someone to blame and there is nobody left to blame but me" WHAT SELF-DELUDED POPPYCOCK.

I cannot change my opinion long standing opinion that his departure is long overdue I met him at the time of D'Allessandro's departure and it was massive ly apparent that Storrie thought this club was his feifdom. I am only sad that so many got taken in by him, and others allowed themselves to be used by him. I do understand his amazementbat the hypocrisy of hundreds of fans who sang his name, but he who lives by the hypocrisy sword etc etc.

Wonder if his successor will learn a lesson? Do your job, keep your head down, don't tell fans what you're trying to do. You only fail if you at least try.

I still think he was good for the club until Sasha pulled the plug. His time with us was generally the best we have known & only so much was in his control. Whatever happens from now on we are on a massive rebuilding schedule.

In two words: "managarial failure". If we'll take the achievements(the club had achievements) and put them against the current problems, so the problems, are much bigger than the achievements. If the club had just half of the budget, few years ago, with a good manager like it has now, we could have reach to wembley anyway(we even did it amazungly in our current collapsed status). so the minus, is much bigger than the plus. storrie retired as a very rich man and some other players will too, but the club current situation is poor(at least until the club will have a new investor) and will have to reach for an agreement with the IRS. The only ray of light i see, is the amazing fans and the amazing manager of the club, the combination of both, will get the club a brand new owner eventually. but i really don't know if AG will stay next year, the fact that the CL finalist, agreed to stay under those collapsed sircumstences and even get the club for wembley, is more than one could ask. but lets see, because in one thing i 1000% sure, the captain really love the club and the fans, if he didn't flee from the sinking boat.

AG will stay if we get a proper owner with money. PS was good under Sacha but he is obviously no judge of character. Whether he is to blame or not, his family doesn't deserve the abuse.

dont mind the bloke i spose its not his fault hes on 1.4m a year its the many owners who give him that wage. but if a new owner comes in and their is a vacancy for chief exectetive he should have an interview like every other candidate. but get paid going rate for a club like us.... 100k ayear max as doctors dont even get this!!

I've had time to review my earlier statement and I still, still, can't help but think the club would have been better off without him, those ridiculous bonus offers and contracts he arranged; allowing Harry to take 10% of the players bought and sold, the continual issues with transfers and agents. it all adds up to a negative balance- metaphorically and literally. I do feel we would have won the FA cup with HR and without Storrie; it could be said given the deals going on it is debatable if you'd get one man without the other. Can't say it was all negative cos it wasn't we won the FA cup and were a force in the Premiership; all people remember are the lies. Someone once said " judge your time by the quality of the people you leave behind" Pete's legacy is administrators, unpaid creditors, a destroyed team and modt sadly 85 redundant people who probably won't work for Pompey again. No I can't change my opinion.

He wants to stay in the game? Doing what? Who the hell would employ him?

On this day in history...11th February

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 11th February.

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.
