Police raid 3 clubs, inc. Pompey

A 'totally independent' operation to that of the Lord Stevens inquiry has seen warrants issued and police raids on 3 clubs take place today - one of these clubs being Pompey, the others Newcastle and Rangers.

I am not trying to bury my head in the sand in relation to this issue by not saying much, but I do not really know what to say or think so I would rather wait and see what happens to begin with really.

This is what the BBC had to say though on BBC News 24.

Check it out fellas then have your say on the issue so we can maybe gage what the feeling is on the matter?

Same old Harry ALWAYS DODGY ;) I love the bloke though, great manager with a great sense of humour, once he was talking to nikola zigic agent and the agent said five million wouldn't buy him and harry says and i'm one of them

No point saying anything really, until we know more about it. Worrying all the same though.

I personally do not tihnk it has anything to do with our Harry. Take a look at the clubs that have been raided - Newcastle, Rangers and Pompey. One agent has had input with transfer deals concerning all three clubs - Pini Zahavi. Nuff said in my opinion, lets hope we see and hear the last of him if it is indeed him.

priorities, crime is crime, wherever and whatever form its in, everyone knows who the bung merchants are, fans get the clubs they deserve, try speaking out against it once in a while, instead of being happy cheating to success. not one comment acknowledging it. Winston churchill said "it only takes good men to do nothing for evil to succeed"

Who mentioned that it has to be about bungs, i dont think we ahve ever cheated for success, the Tevez affair is about blatant law bending. Agents have tarnished the game and if they want to look at our dealings good luck to them, i suppose it is all about Sam at Newcastle and Souness at Rangers. We are Pompey and always will be Knobhead

VanMan I think you are judging Pompey a little early, innocent until proven guilty? Pompey have been cleared in the bungs trial, Harry was cleared in the bungs trial, you can guarantee this is more about agents we have dealt with rather about us

to those ocming on here and thinking they are holier than thou - when you decide to read the facts first before confirming that you have the mentality of knuckledragging meatheads, perhaps you will then see that both Rangers and Pompey have in fact handed documents to the police concerning transfers to and from Newcastle and it is the Toon who could end up in court - not Pompey or Rangers.

A few seasons ago under Bruce you nearly got into the playoffs, even have got into the prem! Then what would you have done. Agents are a neccessary evil & until now you have little choice. May you stay small & pathetic so your club stays agent free.

those nothern boys do like gravy on their chips,which is why they are heaping the brown stuff left right and centre,its in their nature. Right then let have a look at this. Pini is not the only agent in this, Ive watched a certain scots bookie called willie Mckay deal with all three clubs. think back Amdy faye us to geordies,at the same time Boumsong wnt from GRFC which i am pretty darn sure was a McKay deal. I have a feeling that this will be the link. Or it might be about Sascha's Dad in some way as he has had accusations of money laundering,but i cant see any link to the other teams. Yes Mandaric was around at the time of theese sales

I havnt really been following this story...but, the fact that we are being raided puts us in a bad light with football fans across the country, and that does not make me happy. We are being thrown in as a bunch of cheating scum, that are only where we are becasue of how much we have spent, and cheated - and so if we do well next season, everyone will say its becasue we cheated, and if we do badly, they will laugh at us. Whilst i dont think (or hope?) that we have reached that stage yet, the comments of people from other clubs would suggest that we could have, or at least be close. This is concernimg, adn whilst i have no doubt that we are innocent, the fact that police are involved with the club is bad.

I would be amazed if this wasn't indeed solely do with Agents. It all seems to point in that general direction. Just a shame our Great club is implicated in some way, no matter how tenuous, others will always associate us with it, regardless that we've been proven innocent in the Past! PUP
