In many peoples eyes Rob Lloyd is/was a 'chancer' that never really backed up his claims - it is what, 6/7-months and he has still not offered up anything tangible to suggest that his group, with his 'mystery backer', is what you would call 'the real deal'...
Today's 'revelations' in The News that we have another 'potential buyer' working on a deal in the form of 21-year-old Tom Lever will, inevitably, be met with a 'sceptical' reaction.
Although it is 'said' that he has offered up more to back his claims in a week than Lloyd has, really, in the entire time he has been 'talking' about taking over yet still is not really satisfying those that he has to.
Apparently £16.2m has been offered to Balram Chainrai to 'buy him out' before his scheduled date of takeover, around 9th September, with the land around Fratton also intended to be purchased - making a combined deal of £30m...
A 'financial agreement with the lenders' has been agreed, so basically money loaned and then mortgaged against us it would 'seem' is the order of the day here? Whilst in this day and age owners are not very 'charitable' allowing loans to build up against Portsmouth Football Clubs name IS NOT something that we can allow to happen again, we will just end up going round in circles again if we do - although this time there may well be an end, but not a good one.
Maybe this is not the case here though?
To be fair to Lever I guess we have to 'give him a chance' to see what he comes up with, but I would not hold my breath, and my initial reaction - maybe wrongly so - is this 'seems' more a case of 'chancer' than 'real deal' again, so I cannot see anything other than a Chainrai takeover still being the end product.
All I know is that we just need an owner that will do the best things for Portsmouth Football Club, and do things the right way.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
