Just the 10pts for Pompey!
10 points! Result!!
These were the words that I just received via a text from a very good friend of mine to inform me that this was the severity of the points penalty we would get from the football league.
Looking on t'internet I soon found confirmation of this, with The Pompey Site issuing this statement.
Pompey Docked 10 Points
Portsmouth Football Club have been deducted 10 points in accordance with Football League rules and regulations.
This Sporting Sanction has been implemented with immediate effect, following formal confirmation that the club is in administration. Pompey have seven days in which to appeal.
The Football League will now begin dialogue with the administrator aimed at achieving a successful sale of the club and its continuation in league football.
It is indeed a 'result' and a fair outcome to our administration.
There were worrying 'rumours' that Pompey could lose up to 20pts but I am glad that the football league have seen sense and only punished us with the mandatory 10, anything more would have been very harsh given the part that they played in getting us into our latest problems...
Losing 'just' 10pts gives us a fighting chance of survival, and I am confident that we can avoid relegation as a result.
Now if only we could be given the approval to bring in a loanee or two to ensure that we remain 'competitive' eh!
So, football league it is over to you again...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
