The 'rumours' that SAF could make a 'dramatic' return to Pompey have started to grow recently.
Talk has been that he was in attendance at a few games recently, although I have to admit that I felt this 'unlikely' as he is not someone that keeps a low profile, or is able/wants to do this so until the Millwall game 'rumour' is all I felt this was...
Although it has since been confirmed that he was indeed at The Den, among the Pompey fans - where he was of course grilled and given some grief by all accounts, I was not there so could not say.
His explanation, according to what The News quotes a guy that was sat near him as saying, was 'he was just there to watch some football' and 'he wasn't interested in doing anything like that', this being returning in some way as part of the ownership set-up at Fratton.
Whilst he has, or at least had, an extensive list of contacts that - in the early stages of his ownership of the club - many felt could take us to 'another level', and not just a certain Storrieteller, as the guy had a proven history of links or ties with some powerful people with financial muscle it soon became apparent, for whatever reason, he was out of his depth in club ownership...
I still feel that he pretty much always came in with the right intentions although he bit off much more than he could chew, maybe due to people 'concealing' certain things from him yet he was also 'na´ve' in his thinking and actions and this was exploited by those that really should have been helping him I guess.
He very much appreciated the fans and knew that we needed to be treated the right way, as did the community as a whole but some of his ridiculous comments, actions and statements, not to mention his lack of funds to carry out the basics that were required did him little favours!
The guy is, in the nicest of possible ways, a nutter - but sometimes of the good kind but I certainly would not want him to return so it does worry me slightly that he is back on the scene, as simply 'taking in a game' is bound to set tongues wagging, right...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
