You must now account for your previous statements
Sorry Peter but you must now account for your previous statements.

I don't think I am alone in feeling that no matter what your views or thoughts on Peter Storrie, that the time has now come for Peter to come clean. I actually do think he has tried to do the best for the club, and appreciate his battle to keep us afloat, instead of walking away like Harry.... However things don't add up, and rightly or wrongly, his sincerity is not shared by all?

"Fahim, is going to be our Saviour, he IS a mega rich Arab, who has funds tied up in Property... I expect this to be all done and dusted in 6 months and Pompey will never look back..." Followed 6 moths later with, "Fahim is a joke, a clown, full of Eastern Promise, but has done nothing to back up his Daily Fables, we need to sell out to the Faraj brothers, as they are mega rich and will take us to a level we never dreamt of..." Hmmmmm that's true, but we all thought that was to be UP to a level not dreamt of, not SUNK to a level not dreamt of?

It now appears that Sacha sold to Fahim as he could find no links, leads or assurance Ali Al Faraj even exists? Something we are ALL now also finding Sacha was right to be concerned about... Maybe in hindsight, the fan base, (fuelled by the fans meetings with Storrie and Fahim), sided with Storrie and Faraj wrongly, and ousted the wrong Arab? Fahim now appears to have Money available (as always promised) but is reluctant to put it into a club lacking leadership and owing money to anyone and everyone related to Portsmouth or the Gaydamak family... and who honestly can blame him?

What really bothers me though, is what did Peter Storrie see, to make him believe the Faraj Brothers were mega rich and the better option over Fahim, something that Gaydamak saw through and eventually caused him to sell to Fahim? The fans DONT need to be told everything that happens within the club, as knowing too much only causes problems within the club, the fan base, and fuels further media bull than we already have to endure. However, the fans do deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, and now the time has come for the Directors and CEO to be honest and tell us WHAT IS GOING ON.

Vital Pompey has obtained answers from Storrie in the past, so i would like Vital to try and obtain proper answers once more to these and other questions, before more and more fans turn on Peter Storrie and simply ask for his head on a platter. Maybe Fahim can invoke a clause somewhere to take back his 90%, kick out the Israeli Danny, buy the land off Gaydamak, and push forward with his original plan, shutting all us doubters up?

Maybe Faraj can come clean and prove his wealth and stop all this loan crap, before its too late?

Maybe Storrie can explain why he was fooled?

Maybe its time to step up the fans protest if we don't get answers sooner than later?

I did attend the protest yesterday, and I did see the eyes behind the blinds from the windows overlooking Frogmore Road, but 300 fans was not vocal enough. I propose ALL fans stay in the ground at the end of the next home game, and have a sit in, to send the message home hard that we ALL have had enough.

OK My venting over - over to you for discussion lol Midge!

FOOLS FOOLS FOOLS That is what I think of the people chanting "Where's the money gone?" and "Sack the board" and "Get the Arab W4nk3rs out our club". Where has the money gone? Pretty simple really: It has returned to those parties who loaned it to us to buy those players in the first place. The remainder has gone on interest payments and wages. Simples. Insulting chants aimed at those who stepped in to prop up the club from certain doom? Not very clever in my opinion. If they were to pack up their bags and leave which would seem to satisfy most of the chanters... then who do they propose to step in with £60M? Do they all perhaps have a rich mate just waiting in the wings? Well if so please do ask them to step forward. Also, why does everybody seem to think they have a right to know about the private and internal financial workings of the club and the people investing their money? Well, apart from seeking out the accounts at Companies House which I doubt any of the chanters have bothered with. The fans are not shareholders, creditors or even employees. They pay money to watch FOOTBALL. If you would choose not to do so, if you don't consider the £35 fair for the entertainment provided, please dissapear with all other JCLs. The people chanting sich ludicrous phrases as sack the board do not understand what they are wishing for. All they are doing is passing on their negativity to the players and management. Some fan pressure can be a good thing, but vitriol and ill-advised mass protest is a stupid way to show how some of the best fans in the country respond to adversity. Whatever happened to the spirit of that famous loss to Aresenal where we chanted right through the defeat?

Come on Fahim, show us that £50 you were talking about, get the club, kick that invisible man out and then you will be cheered when sitting in the Fratton Sun eating a burger/hot dog in a Pompey shirt instead....

Evans - Right back or right midfield?

Drew Talbot and Adam Buxton are fit but Gareth Evans continues to fill in at right back. Should this change? If so where would it leave the battle between Evans and Carl Baker?
