Summing up and any hopes for the future?

Summing up and any hopes for the future?
Last night after having a couple of beers with mates I was asked the question about my thoughts for Pompey over the last two seasons.

My own assessment was that we have been poor and this is down to a number of things mainly our ownership situation and the administration and it's affect.

We then tried to look at my thoughts for next season and with the way things are at the moment I don't expect much to change.

Anyone else give me a glimmer of hope for next season along with justification?

    as said in the forum....
    as things stand at this present time we are faced with exactly the same scenario as we have the last 2-years, altho this time it would be even worse and survival in this league really would be something!
    in many ways it is even worse tho and the number of players cotterill has cut loose, when there really was no need in all cases, could hurt us REALLY bad!

    In those thoughts I think we have to separate the club from the team. Club-wise we're now more stable than we've been for the past 2 years - albeit we're still up for sale. Team-wise (including the manager) I think we're on more dodgy ground and, unless we can find a cash injection to bolster a fragile team setup, we're in for a struggle next season.

    We need that cash injection as soon as possible if next season is not going tto be a mirror of this one, wheher we have survived due to two good unbeaten spells.

    With matt Richie getting Swindon’s player of the season, it does make me question SC's decision, however he is the pro..to be honest, what really worries me is that the red stripes are on their way up along with that other lot east of us, and if the cherries make too we could be on the end of several derby whoopings..Scummers are a good team with loads of potential to improve; we however are in a poor condition and could get worse. Look at Norwich the way they have swept through the championship as a potential template for them, whereas we need to look at how they've dropped down as potential template. Next season I suspect that Leicester City and Scum will lead the way, so there is a president to revive if our worse fears materialise. I am certain the CSI takeover will be completed, but I am dubious about their motives and suspect a little investment will follow their involvement, but it will take a canny manager to compete with Sven and Co in the transfer market. Holloway has shown that this can be done…Oh , and I also reckon Burnley and Eddie Howe will be in the mix

    If it's a glimmer of hope you want.... Things will be the same.. and considering the past few years .. I'd settle for another season like this one anyday.. irrespective of what others near or far are doing..

    The fact that "muffins" is player of the year sums up the paucity of quality at the club. I am far more concerned about the managers ability to learn from or even acknowledge his mistakes. As I've said elsewhere it's a whole new season in 12 weeks time and I'll give Pol Cot a further 8 weeks. I guess it will be about 3 weeks before mr bluedr skies gets the go ahead to finish himself :-)
