Another consortium on the horizon?

Another consortium on the horizon?

Duffen was the man who took Hull from the Championship to the Premiership, for that he is commended, but he left with them struggling both on the pitch and with finances, would we be prepared to got through all that again?

Here is what he told Express FM


'I have been monitoring the situation at Portsmouth for several months and trying to do a deal for some weeks. I have a fully funded bid ready to go,'
'I have been looking for a good opportunity and biding my time but I would love to get back into football and take charge of a club with such fantastic potential.

'I had three very successful years there, culminating in promotion to the Premier League, and have done my time in the university of football that is the north of England.

'But I would love to get back in and it is no secret I live just outside Guildford.

'Portsmouth have a fantastic fan base and there is great potential to develop Fratton Park. It is a challenge that excites me.'

He certainly seems keen to get reinvolved with football, he failed in the past with proposed takeovers at West ham and Cardiff, what Pompey need right now though is stability, not a quick fix, if he were to sort out Fratton first, then a training ground maybe I would believe in him, at least then he would leave a legacy!

Well I hope AA will get cast iron guarantees from him if his bid is serious.

Chanrai told SSN that he has a surprise for the fans when (and if) he takes back control. When pressed he added - 'Going back to the Premier League'!! All of a sudden be have people lining up to buy us, where have they been?

Chanrai also mentioned having a 'consortium' - could Duffen be a part of that? PUP.

Perhaps Chainrai is going to buy us some star players? I don't want them, I'm happy with what we have.

The big surprise is that Peter Storrie is part of the consortium........ apparently he's been wisely investing some money he's just happened to come by over the years!

I don't trust the Duffer, he screwed up Hull. If he's part of something with Chan or a n other then fine, but not on his own; he cannot support the necessary finance. A bit like Milan only Milan has the decency to admit it.

haha corny i don't think even storrie is stupid enough to come back to the city of portsmouth any time soon, he'd be hung drawn and quartered in minutes lol. Great news that people want to actually invest in the club again just could of been a little sooner but i assume thats down to our performance in the league and how little money the playing squad actually needs spending on it and hey if chanrai and this guy do have a consortium then maybe just maybe we might finally get that redevelopment we've been promised so many times... i won't hold my breath ;D
