The Coventry defeat last Tuesday, a fair reflection of things or not, totally ended any 'hopes' or 'dreams' people had of the play-offs at the end of the season. Another 3-0 mauling at Cardiff at the weekend confirmed this beyond a doubt!
Combine both results and it has almost certainly 100% confirmed that another major rebuild at Fratton would be taking place this summer...
The vast majority of those on show against Coventry, and Cardiff for that matter, will be playing their final games for Pompey over the next few weeks - we have been there before a few times!
For many, if I am totally honest, I will not be 'that disappointed' when the time does come that they move on, for a few others that do I think it will be a shame as they have shown most weeks that they would be assets for us again next season as they have kept fighting and never gave up, but hey ho.
We just have to hope that whatever takeover is going to happen, if it does, happens sooner rather than later so we can actually do the rebuilding - on a sensible, realistic and sustainable budget - sooner rather than later so we do not end up seeing next season completely mirror this.
That said if we survived another season in the nopower next time round as things stand at this exact moment in time would that not be classed as another successful one, right?
Although some real stability, for the first time in what seems an age, would be much appreciated and make next season - whatever it brought - a little easier to follow than recent years have been!
It would be nice for us to have a summer though were we get things sorted out - and, I know I keep saying it, to a realistic and sustainable level - early and are not left scavenging for scraps and casts offs at the eleventh hour again. CSI, if it is to be you taking over, sooner rather than latter it is over to you.
It is my hope, beyond hopes, that this summer we can finally get to that point where we can just about clear out the remaining massive high earner 'hangers on', that we cannot afford to keep, and can finally get together a squad that is realistic to our club and one in our situation...
I think we can safely say that this deal 'is on'. By all accounts both parties want to get it right and they are looking to get it right. Finer points are being 'ironed out'.
'Word on the street' has it that Chainrai will not walk until the deal is stabile, the CVA guaranteed and the football league/FA are happy to approve, with it 'thought' that they are happy to do so, more or less. As always the Gaydarlek land is a problematic area but things will be done with this deal, with mid-may 'said' the targeted date for completion...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
