'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The ultimate aim

I know now is not the time to look back as we should look forward, but you cannot help but wish at times that if we were going to end up in the financial mess we did why could we not have done this and that and at least have had a new, or redeveloped stadium, and training complex to show for it!

If only some of the money 'thrown at the club' could have been used to move to a brand spanking new stadium or, as I would have always preferred anyway, redeveloped Fratton Park.

Another thing that we really should have done when we spent all those years in the premier league was use some of that money to build a proper training complex that we, PFC, owned!

All that said I bet even more fingers would have ended up in even more pies if we had...

These things did not happen, eventually we were left without anything not even that proverbial pot to piss in, but we can now look forward and the club already have a long-term ultimate aim to get this sorted.

In the meantime a 'financially sound' deal will see us train at the University of Portsmouth, and this at least brings us back to the city, before one day we stay in the city with a training base we own and can call home...
