It seems that only at Portsmouth Football Club do so many people with previous connections with the club keep returning!
One such 'familiar face' - well at least this guy did have a face, unlike the one he sold the club too! - that 'could' return is Sulaiman Al-Fahim...
The PST, in the following statement, have confirmed that a meeting with 'one of his team' took place earlier this week with the view to SAF having some form of investment in their takeover bid: 'on Monday night the trust met with one of Mr Al-Fahim's team to discuss the community buy-out.
'We took the time to explain the bid and the progress made so far along with the type of community club that we wish to create.
'Mr Al-Fahim's team will now consider the information we gave them and whether both sides can work together.
'All through this process we have said we will talk with anyone who can help save Portsmouth Football Club from liquidation.
'This meeting was in line with that aim.'
Confirmation of his interest came on Twitter, with him tweeting: 'I'm not promising anything. I'm like any other fan trying to be part of the PST bid.'
Good news is he would be 'medium sized' - not quite sure medium is his size but hey ho! - investor and that would mean he would, thankfully, have 'no controlling interest' in the proposed PST takeover bid.
The guy had some crazy ideas, and is most definitely eccentric, although to be fair I still feel that he did come in with good intentions. Things were hidden from him and he was naļve enough to have the wool pulled over his eyes.
I also still feel that he did have 'potentially wealthy' investors willing to work with him, a la Man City, although once the true extent of the mess Pompey were in become more apparent, the deeper you dug, the less interest these people showed, and in many ways you could not blame them!
So, all in all I do think that he 'means well' so as long as he does show the colour of his money - and like us fans investing - does so without really 'expecting' anything back, apart from the legacy of a club living on, then let him get involved.
Just please make sure that the 'no controlling interest', unless he has suddenly found a bit of money to help run this club as it should be, is given him...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
