Feeding off the carcass? Ipswich 3 Fulham 1

Feeding off the carcass? Ipswich 3 Fulham 1

Given our outstanding tax bill, and the winding-up petition from HMRC as a result, it is little wonder that clubs are circling like vultures, ready to feast off the Portsmouth Football Club carcass.

The media will knock out 'link after link', some will have basis and some will not...

It is common knowledge, pretty much acknowledged by managers at both clubs, that Ipswich are after Jason Pearce and Joel Ward.

So far a couple of offers have been rejected.

Although reports from The East Anglian Times are now saying that Ipswich have not only returned once more, doing so on Tuesday, but returned for not only Pearce and Ward but also another 'unnamed' Pompey player too!

This offer is 'said' to be around £2m for the trio...

Another new 'link' today is one that sees Fulham's name connected with Ryan Williams.

The Mirror reports that the premier league outfit are 'preparing a £500,000 bid' for the Aussie winger.

True reports or not, fending off these vultures is only something we can do for a limited time...

I don't mind (but I do really!!) clubs coming in for our players - it's the derisory transfer fee offers I really detest.

Yes you expect vultures but they are adding insult to injury with their offers. When & if we are in a postion to buy again, may be can offer Ipswich 50p for their entire midfield!!!

We are not in court until 20th Feb and the window will have shut by then, so let's keep everyone and see what happens on the 20th!! Surely us as a club and NOT in administration do not have to sell players just yet no matter what AA says?

If we lose players now we cannot possibly compete properly in the league, i agree with frattonbex, keep them all and finish as high as possible, we have nothing to lose and Ipswich can visit the league below us for a few years - we owe THEM nothing at all.

Sheffield United loanee open to Pompey return

McNulty would welcome a permanent transfer to Pompey. Although the Sheffield United striker could well be part of new manager Wilder's plans, so the chances seem 50:50 at best?

ST prices frozen...buying into future ambition?

That is the aim, and hope, at least as far as Catlin is concerned. Pompey's decision to freeze season ticket prices should result in a good take up once again. Shouldn't it?
