Put up or shut up!

Put up or shut up!

That title, 'put up of shut up' was not quite the one I wanted, but 'put up or **** off' probably would not have been very well accepted by the bosses at Vital Towers!

Although it is very much a case of this now for SAF...

He waltzed back into town, well at least as an 'interest bidder' for Pompey - not that it is him bidding of course, no it is another Arabian Pompey fan! - making his intentions known - again sorry, not his but his Arabian consortiums intentions known - yet still nothing has happened, well over a week after this interest.

Failure to 'prove funding' delayed matters, although by this Tuesday this (showing proof) would have been possible, that of course was passed the Friday deadline last week, which we all now know has seen yet another 'extension' granted - so then Saffy you can still provide this proof can't you...

Yeah right!

The guy is deluded, it is never gonna happen as any businessman that has supposedly provided £12.5m worth of financial proof in an Arabian account would have ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM opening a bank account in England!

'Fresh hope', or words along those lines, were tweeted as something that SAF had following another resolution come the latest deadline, I wonder what his latest excuse will be tomorrow when a failure to have these funds in an English bank account happens...

Come on Trevor Birch tell this joker to jog on if, as I suspect we all know will be the case, he is not able to provide proof of these funds tomorrow!

Then just made a decision as to which bid, Chainrai's or The PST, you are going to accept and just get it done already, whatever one - even though I know the one I want - it is going to be...

Have tried opening a bank account here lately. We have had huge problems getting bank accounts open for the kids once they reached 18. An absolute nightmare. If you're a foreign national living abroad it must be worse. I'm not disagreeing with the gist of the article just pointing out the difficulties involved.

Lemmi I agree, I open commercial accounts on a weekly basis and if you are a foreign national it gets harder by the day. Ways do exist such as transferring money to a London registered international accountant or finance body- this can be expensive though. You can just move the money to an international bank with a London office or get your bank to guarantee a uk finance institution. What could well be an issue is the registered place of the bank supposedly holding the £12M, for example not many people know that the construction wealth in Dubai was based solely on debt and when the crash came that Emirate state's banks and inowned assets and therefore its sovereign wealth fund all became Bankrupt in the literal sense. Abu Dhabi basically came to the rescue of what was instantly a failed state. Given the above most major companies would not be happy to accept a guarantee from a small Dubai bank without an Abu Dhabi guarantee, some major collaterall or Al Makhtoum's signature on the bottom. Personally if the bid is real, I think the delay is caused by who the real money might be.

Well i'm certainly prepared to give him and his consortium?? time to get the funding sorted, as must TB be if he's prepared to extend again the deadline. We can all speculate as to whats going on but only the people in the know are the bidders and TB's firm. My firm belief is if SAF and his cronies get in and give a seat on the board to the fans trust then this surely must be the best overall solution for all. Agree by the way Russ and Lemmi re the accounts, no where near straight forward opening accounts at the moment as i found back in Febuary, got it done but my word it wasn't as straight forward as has been the case in the past.

Thanks Russ, I did not know that. PS; this site is not, internetingly speaking, working well at the moment. Anyone else having flickering problems and typed letters not appearing in words?

Pompey Predictions League - update no.10

The Pompey Predictions League is part of this site now isn't it. Would it be the same without it? This continued with the defeat at Blackpool and will continue against Doncaster.

Vital Pre-Match - League 2, 1st October

The 2016-17 season continues with the latest round of matches this weekend, which will see us among those having a match in this upcoming schedule with three-points the aim of course.

Tollitt still has a Pompey chance

Well, according to Cook. He's insisting Tollitt, the former Everton academy player who had returned to Merseyside to join Tranmere on loan, can still return to Pompey.

Pompey win and lose collectively

As such Cook doesn't want the fans to start turning on individual players, which has been the case with Bennett with Smith not exactly viewed as a 'fans' favourite' either.
