Previously it was the end of this week, or was that the end of last week?
Now, according to The News, a deal for CSI to take over at Pompey could be 'signed, sealed and delivered by the end of the month' - we will see...
I am sure that I am not alone in becoming more than a little bit bored by the whole situation, yet again - what would be the correct term for repeat déjà vu? - and in a way am not taking 'that much' notice of things.
Of course this is not to say that I do not care, as I do!
PFC means the world to me so I care a great deal and genuinely pray that we fall into the ownership of a person(s) that can/will do right by the club and do what is needed to fully stabilise this fantastic club, fully rebuild us and most of all give us a good, stabile and sustainable long-term future.
That is what I, well we, crave most of all, right?
The News today said that a football league spokesman had confirmed that would be owners, presumably CSI, have undertaken the Football League's Fit and Proper Persons test: 'we have had some information submitted relating to the ownership of Portsmouth, and we can confirm that the process to buy the club is ongoing.'
So this is a positive thing, in as much as the would be owners are moving into the home straight of any 'potential' takeover, as these tests come towards the very end of the process.
For me though nothing is official until it is on The Pompey Site, so this is the place we want to be seeing things!
For David Lampitt to say this is where we will find out what we need to know is also good to hear: 'There have been a number of interested parties throughout the process and for us it is business as usual.
'We are absolutely trying to find the right investors for the club.
'That process has been ongoing and still is ongoing and until there is something concrete to report on we won't we making any official comment.
'Until there is something meaningful to report I just don't think it helps the club or any interested parties to fuel speculation.'
Getting the right deal in place for PFC is a must, of course the current owners will want what is best for them too, so if this takes a little longer then so be it although we must be in a position to look at the playing side of things much, much sooner than we were last summer, and the summer before that!
We cannot go through yet another summer of turmoil where we are desperately searching for players on the eve, and actually during, the season as we will once again be playing catch-up.
Of course The News, and other papers, will continue to bang on about this, that and the other and continue to bring 'exclusive' snippets, 'detailed' insights into would be owners and the like but all being well a deal, and 'fingers crossed' the right one, can be concluded in the not to distant future with The Pompey Site bringing us this news in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, as seems to have been the case for years, all we can do is 'sit and wait' - lets talk about the football, even if it has been dire recently...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
