On Wednesday evening Vital Pompey member tracyc posted the following in the forum - Interesting Rumour! - here.
Check out the link above for the comments that followed, and to add your own, but this is what she posted having seen it: 'Saw this on a rumour site. I always take these rumours with a large pinch of salt, but perhaps I would like this one to be true . . . (and it is better written than a lot of the ones you see on this particular site)

Disregard anything you hear from Portsmouth's parent company's administrator Andrew Andronikou about a takeover group today.
The group identified as being led by Joseph Cala is nothing more than a 'stalking horse' representing Chainrai as he seeks to regain control of the club to recoup his investment.
Andronikou knows what's going on and is reluctant to sell to them for this reason.
There is however another group, who are the serious buyers and are the ones with no links to previous ownerships. They are the ones in the front-seat for the club. The stalking horse bid is only there in case the real deal falls through (which is looking unlikely).
The only reason details about this third group haven't been leaked is because they're doing things properly - a first for PFC.
Due Diligence has been completed, and the FAPPT is being undertaken as I type by the Football League.
Pompey are, regardless of what other fans think, on their way to finally being a stable club. The impending new owners are deadly serious about their intentions. They may not have the mega-bucks to contend with the real big boys, but there will be more than enough in the pot to turn the club around and get it back on its' feet.
Of course, I expect no-one to believe this. More fool them. Expect to hear more developments on this after the next FL meeting this week."
So what do people think?
I would 'guess' that pretty much 100% of us Pompey fans would wish this 'rumour' to be true eh!
Given the 'public outburst' from the very same Joseph Cala in The News today, then assuming that rumour does have some basis, it is kind of playing out as it is said it would, right?
Whilst I know we all have to try and cut people some slack I cannot say that I am getting a 'good vibe' from what is starting to emerge about the Sicilian businessman...
The little that is known about his background is not really a glowing endorsement of the guy and there seem to be snippets of a few of the recent owners we have had virtually rolled into one!
'Rumours' sites usually are nothing more than just that but lets hope that the post that tracyc tracked down proves to be a correct one!
So far, if it does have some basis, then the 'emergence' of Joseph Cala as a 'front-runner' in the race to become the next Pompey owner helps this to fit that bill a little more...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
