I think that many would be forgiven for not realising, or even knowing, that Chelsea Football Club is a one that has previously been within touching distance of going out of business as a club too.
The financial backing seen by them, for the past decade or so by Roman Abramovich (if this 'could' come at a price at a latter stage is open for debate), has seen them become one of the biggest clubs in English, European, even world football, but they too have seen tough times in the past.
As such our current plight has not gone unnoticed and our friends at Vital Chelsea have shown a fair amount of support for Pompey in recent days.
Portsmouth - We're With You!
SOTN 86 - A Plea To The Club.
Ok, at this point in time the thoughts of getting players to come and play for PFC (from them or others) are kind of, in many ways, irrelevant (as if the situation as regards to the current senior players going without huge pay-offs is not resolved in the next couple of weeks there WILL NOT be a Portsmouth Football Club as we know it now anyway!) it is nice to know that backing is coming for us and for that I do thank the guys at Vital Chelsea who are making pro-active moves to try and encourage help for us from their club down the line.
I am led to believe that this attempted backing is going to step up a notch or two if possible?
Some might say that this is 'of little comfort', but it is nevertheless appreciated and credit must go to those showing us support and appreciating our plight - afterall all, whatever your club, we are all football fans right...
Is the current Portsmouth Football Club beyond saving?
Well, maybe so... Also, maybe it 'might' even be strongly argued it would be better to start afresh?
Whatever though this is something that will (I really do pray!) can be resolved one way or the other in these coming weeks as I think we have all had enough of this nightmare situation that constantly drags on and seems to be never ending!
Having exchanged views, via email, with some of those involved on Vital Chelsea today it is nice to know that an understanding of things is kind of there with others. (Of course I realise that many others, besides Chelsea, also appreciate that it is not simply a case, as some do seem to think, of 'you spent beyond your means to get into this state so it is your fault!')
'If' we can get past this latest, and most dangerous period of all from the past few years, any help that we can get from others, such as Chelsea, at little to no cost to this club would be appreciated and indeed needed...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
