A 'deadline' loses all meaning, not to mention its very definition, when this keeps coming and going without any outcome at all!
Yet again Pompey are faced with another one of these poxy things after Trevor Birch decided to give 'interested bidders another 2-weeks' to finalise their takeover bids.
He deemed that neither Portpin or The PST's bid were 'ready' to be seriously considered as options to takeover at Fratton as he seeks to not only get us a new owner but also to get the best deal for the creditors...
To say 'its getting boring now' would be an understatement as this has long since been the case!
If neither bid is ready yet what is to say they will when his latest deadline arrives!! Does Birch then set another deadline!?
Something is not quite stacking up though is it?
In spite of constant deadlines Appy seems to be under the impression that funds are in place, with or without, a takeover to allow us to dish out fresh month-long contracts when September 6th arrives.
In fact it seems as though he feels we can get through until January - at least - with it also most likely that the players we currently have will remain with us until that point as they are unable to sign for another club until the New Year even if their rolling month-long contracts end, so it makes sense for them to continue to renew these each month.
The suggestion has even been made that Portsmouth football club has some £3m in the bank account, meaning we could 'probably' get through the season anyway, although the administrators must be eating away a hefty chunk of this...
Hey ho at least we have a game tomorrow and Appy has been able to strengthen his squad a little ahead of it!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
