No Pozzo family interest in PFC

No Pozzo family interest in PFC

Weekend 'rumours' of an 'investment fund' interest from Italian family the Pozzo's is 'understood' to be wide of the mark...

According to what sky sports 'understand' Udinese owner Giampaolo Pozzo, with the Pozzo family also owning Spanish outfit Granada, is 'not poised to launch a bid for Championship side Portsmouth.'

The sky report went on to say that 'contact was made by a contact close to Portsmouth with the Pozzos, with a view to investing', so at least some talks 'probably' took place but 'the Italians have decided against investing at this current time, concentrating instead on Udinese and Granada.'

So that it would seem, for now anyway, rules the Pozzo's out as potential owners for Portsmouth Football Club...

As much as I want this club to be saved, hand on heart, can I really say that I am in the least bit surprised that a group that would 'seem' to have a genuine interest in owning football clubs, for the right reason, would not be interested in PFC?

Well, no I cannot say that I would as there really does seem little to appeal to such people!

All the same I hope as much as the next person that something can be arranged to save this club once and for all...

We may, sadly, have the reputation of a dodgy chalice which only the barrell scappers & lowlife attract.

Seven month consultation yields result

There was much speculation about what would happen, what the final outcome could bring and how happy - or disappointed - this was going to leave us. The new Pompey club crest is known.

Oldham - 17th March - Boundary Park

The recent form at Fratton Park has been terrible. Then again it's hardly stunning away from the South Coast, but we'll hope to put Oldham under pressure and collect a much-needed win.
