'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ready whenever you are Mr Lloyd!

Today is meant to be the 'big day' for Rob Lloyd's consortium looking to take over Pompey, according to what the man himself said earlier in the week.

He said that a 'formal offer' would 'definitely' be made before Thursday's creditors meeting with that offer being made today as he said 'Wednesday is a big day' for his group, thus far no word on an offer being made is leaking out at all...

To be fair there is still daylight left in this day, and perhaps an offer would not 'necessarily' be made public either? You would think something would come out though, but so far there is a lot of silence today, then again is this a good or bad thing?

'Should' no formal offer be made today then the credibility that this consortium might have would be almost lost completely though, right?

Admin Andy had said, once again, that he had concerns about this approach as he had not seen anything 'tangible', so whilst it would be good to go into this creditors meeting knowing there is some concrete interest in a takeover at Pompey going through, following these thoughts, even 'if' an offer is now made, how much faith the creditors will have in this remains to be seen...

As always, only time will tell what is going to happen, I guess all we can do is continue to sit, hope and play the waiting game - even if it does suck, which is does big time! Then again I think we have become past masters at this now really.

Of course I know little, in fact virtually nothing more than most, so I will not try to claim too much otherwise, although what I have been told is 'everyone is remaining tight lipped on this,' so it seems nothing is being let slip to anyone in media world on this issue?

Again, is this a good or bad thing?

Come on Rob if your 'mystery backer' is making a move make this happen, the eyes of Pompey are on you...

Although in all honesty why would anyone put in a bid before the creditors meeting anyway?

Haven't we been down this road before? It's like one of those old movies where you try to drive away from the big scary house but keep ending up back there again.

It's the same old story we've had to suffer this past year.

There's never any point in getting hung up on dates (days). As the last year has shown us these things never happen until they happen. Somebody always pushes for a date and then surprise surprise the 'deadline' passes.

whilst I don't doubt Mr Lloyd's consortia are serious they and his various promoters need to put up or shut up until they have. They will have to work hard enough to get back some credibility, a sort statement then silence and action is what is needed.

Silence is never golden, especially not after all the song and dance Lloyd made in the first place. Probably just hot air to get his mug in the paper...typical.

The consortia have to fund the CVA, it's not really serious for them not to know on advance of the standard circa 25p in the first offer.

Still believe that Admin Andy is on Chanrai's payroll and any offer will be rejected in favour of an offer from Balram.

From a good article on the BBC site: "For his part, Andronikou remains confident he will be given the mandate to prepare a CVA and then later this month get the backing he needs to take the club out of administration. The search for a buyer for the club would also intensify."
