Cala or Bust?

Cala or Bust?
Pompeytim has come up with a poll, the voting can take place to your right, but look at this summary before you do vote...

Quick question for you:

Given what you have heard of Mr Cala "The Man from Atlantis", would you prefer to see what he can do with the club, or would you prefer to think the unthinkable and let the club die & start again?

Some might argue that it is always best for the club to carry on, regardless of whether there are further problems and embarrassing moments around the corner.

Others might argue that if Pompey were a dog, the kindest thing to do would be to put it down.

What do you think?

Cala to own the club, no matter what may happen under his reign?
The club to fold & we start again. I'm fed up with this situation?

got to say that my initial feelings with cala are, and have been since he 'submerged' are that we are proper *****ed if he took over... i also cannot help but think that this almost says we are beyond saving??
can anyone really say that they do not think we will not be back in this same position in 6-12-months tops, if not less time, under his ownership?

the only hope i seem to think that we have is that he is the front man for someone else, but could they not have had someone a little more 'credible' than him if that were the case...

we'd be lucky to last 11 days Rug.... yup sorry but if that was our only choice it'd be bust every time for me, this buffoon couldn't organise a pi$$ up in a brewery. Lucky he's not even in the running then really (if he is i'll eat my hat)

Rug, the front page foreword scared me to death "An article from Pompeytim looking at the Joseph Cala situation, with it seemingly likely that he will now take over" but it says nothing about a Cala takeover - just our thoughts if that were to be the case. Stop scarifying please, pretty please.

My thoughts are that I don't want Cala but 'beggars can't be choosers' and all that. If we're going to go bust what's the harm in delaying it by a few weeks? Go out in style ;-)

The poll doesn't seem to offer much of a choice - is this REALLY all we have left? Die slowly or die fast? Die drowning or die by being shot? Folding is not a preferred option but i am ***** scared after reading about the Cala bloke. Managed 11 days at Salernitana, that's a quick change even by our standards

I think the man is a little nutty .. but if he is good enough for Admin Andy and the Football Leagues limited resources then he is good enough for me .. my only hope is that 'If' he takes over he is not automativally driven away by 'so called' Pompey fans wjo want to see him fail.. and will be determined to make that happen.. IF he takes over .. we should be cynical perhaps .. but not mob handed in agression on matters we (in honesty) know very little about ...

If he is the man who 'gets the gig' he will have his chance regardless of whether i want him or not This poll is asking for our opinions BEFORE we find out what us happening I don't like the options listed - doesn't mean i will be hoping Cala fails if he comes in

I think I'm with Chix on this one. Can't say he's my choice, but do we have one. But Fold & Start again? are you having a laugh !? If we fold, who honestly thinks that PFC Phoenix will rise from the ashes? Sure, we might end up with a team like Gosport Borough, sharing Moneyfields ground if we're lucky, but frankly, that is where my interest would end.......I may listen in on the radio out of interest, but please, let's be honest with ourselves !! PUP and lets hope the FA and AA have done a decent job Still, this could all still be a smokescreen :-)

The Mansfield Low Down

PompeyFrippy looks ahead to Mansfield where Pompey MUST win in order to keep alive the hopes of beating Doncaster - who end this if they beat Exeter - and Plymouth to the title.

Over and out?

Noel Hunt's Pompey career could be over? A dislocated shoulder, at Hartlepool, means the former Southend man will not feature against Mansfield or Cheltenham.

Burgess - we can go again in league one

Christian Burgess, like the rest of us, is enjoying Pompey's promotion to league one BUT he's not content to settle at that level - he's already eyeing the Championship.

Winger returns but full back on his way out?

Ex-Chelsea & Walsall winger Lalkovic is back at Pompey, ahead of the proposed end to his Ross loan. Talbot looks as if his Blues days are numbered, a Chesterfield return is mooted?
