Americans target Pompey?

Americans target Pompey?

American takeovers of English clubs seem to be the 'in thing' and the Mirror today claim that Pompey is the 'latest club to be targeted by American investors'.

They claim that two consortiums with connections to the American MLS are 'weighing up' offers in the view of approaching Sasha Gaydamak.

Our improvement on the field and the impressive moves forward we are making off it - and could make yet further - appear to see us as a 'worthwhile' investment with our value said to have increased to £60m.

Is this just the Mirror with nothing better to write or could there be some truth to it?

Maybe so, but as much as Sasha is a business man my thinking is he has started to go down a very impressive road with what he is doing at Pompey so why sell now - yep, maybe get out while the going is good but potentially this could get a lot better!

I have been emailing our cousins in the american Pompey fan club and they say that this is new to them, and that they will ask around etc, to see if there is any substance to this. We seem to be moving in the right direction at the moment so we should not be suprised if businessmen get interested in us, but why would the current owners want to sell ?

The Mirror reflects on all things nonsense.

agreed and agreed fellas... even if approached sasha surely would not sell at the moment as his vision extends a good few years - after this maybe he will, but he should then sell something worth alot more than what he could get now...

This does sound like utter Mirror BS, and let's hope it is!

It only makes sense if someone can take us further than what Sasha can! We all gulped when we first heard Milan wanted to sell us on. This might be hogwash news but somewhere down the line it may make good sense. As long as no one buys the scummers!

Years down the line fair enough, but too much upheaval over a relatively short time cannot be a good thing. Especially as we've done really well so far under Sacha.

It is all rubbish isnt it. It must be our turn to be looked at by the Americans, it will probably be Bolton and Wigan next week. Sasha is the man, and he wil be here for the next few years, and will be here as we get into Europe and win the FA Cup, pass me more lager !! I can dream.

Being some way sort of linked to this stuff through my job i dont think its rubbish but the club is recapitalised at at least twice what has been paid and the value only looks to go higher ( subject to strikers) so it would not be in sasha'a intrest to sell yet. Once planning is acheived for the stadium the situation may change as there wouild be a current value and an increased future value.

Speculation is rife at the moment with anything and everything. The papers have to report something and the Mirror is very good at reporting utter rubbish so I would not even worry about comments like this. If only they could look in their own Mirror they would see a very ugly being indeed. Mirror, mirror on the bog wall, who's the fairest of them all....certainly not that rag, although it does indeed belong in a bog !!

Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...

Please be Real Madrid...please be Real Madrid!

Ok, despite the fact Real Madrid must 'owe us one' for Diarra, I'm a realist with who Pompey will face...I'll settle for a pre-season friendly at Fratton being against Barcelona!
