Chainrai return could scupper James stay?

Chainrai return could scupper James stay?
It all depends on which side of the Chainrai fence you stand. That is, whether you think he really is, as Andrew Andronikou suggests, the best (only?) option for the club to exit administration or whether you remain suspicious of his intentions for the club and that his second-coming will simply prolong the agony at Fratton Park.

For me, I think at the moment I reside in the latter and am genuinely concerned that we don't have a new owner with football in his heart. And I think, Chainrai's ownership, assuming that it happens, could have wider implications for the team. David James may have been wavering towards the idea of staying at Pompey which, in turn, could have a positive effect on others such as Aaron Mokoena and the decision that he takes regarding his future.

As fans, we have been through the mill over the past 18 months or so and so too have the players in some respects. However, the difference is that as a Pompey fan, you can't simply walk away when the going gets tough whereas a player can do just that. And it may be that the thought of no real new ownership and a lack of sincere intent to progress the football club may be the straw that breaks the camel's back for the likes of James and Mokoena.

Chainrai's arrival sends out a negative message in so many ways and for some merely places the club back in the dark old days of a few months ago. One step forward and six steps back. If the players that we want to keep view it the same way then surely they will make an obvious decision regarding their own futures.

You are right Dave it depends what your thought is. In the mean time what is the basis of this story? Tbh to the untrained eye Dave it seems your concerned so have written a speculatory scaremongering article. The other point is Jamo leaving will be a blow but not a disaster; Chan leaves and no real owner in place and that is a real blow, embargo stays and James can't sign anyway.

Sorry chaps; it's an opinion and much of what is written is based around opinion. Not meant to be scaremongering and hey, if it wouldn't be a disaster anyway then how could it be classified as scaremongering. No disaster = nothing to be scared about. Didn't claim it to be substantiated. Various articles are claiming that Chanrai could take over as owner again and we all know that various players are undecided as to what to do. Those are the facts. My opinion therefore is based on how their decision could be influenced by Chanrai taking over rather than somebody totally new who may be more of a football person. That's all guys. Chill.

Yea cracking idea, insult our intelligence then when we don't buy it come back and patronise us- we luv that! I see now my error- your opinion is substantiation. Fact Chan might buy the club; agreed. Please explain why that would put Jamo off? Particularly since Chan paid his wages? While your at it please explain how we would have had a club to support if Chan hadn't put us into Admin; particularly as HMRC were going to wind Pompey up; or was that a Chan conspiracy? Please also explain how the embargo gets lifted with no Chan or new owner in sight? Please explain how James rejoins with the embargo in place? Your stuff started off pushing an agenda, then it got not really balanced but at least supported with an argument - now it isn't.

Surprised this article made it past the editors to be honest. Sounds like a typical SOS Pompey piece of propoganda to me.
