Will there be enough pledges converted?

Will there be enough pledges converted?
The PST might now be walking in a publicity minefield that could possibly blow up in their faces.

It's close to Xmas and many people are tightening their belts.

Should the PST say that the take-up of pledges is going well, or urge fans to take-up their pledges otherwise the club will face liquidation?

If they push the 'all is going well' line then those fans who are facing financial hardship may take the view that their 1,000 is not that important.

On the other hand if they push the 'threat of liquidation' then the fans facing financial hardship may think what's the point of risking 1,000 if the club's going under.

Hence the poll to gage the feelings of the Vital members.

What the poll asked:

Will there be enough pledges converted for the PST takeover to be successful?

How you voted:

Yes 52%
No 27%
Difficult to predict (tight budgets & Xmas looming) 21%

Assuming the 52% are all converting their pledges it would be interesting to know if the other 48% come under the two categories above, or if they are converting but are pessimistic about the outcome (or maybe they didn't pledge).

What are your thoughts on what the poll concluded?

Heard something like this before insofar as there is only 50% conversion rate. I hope this is wrong as that could be harsh.

I'm reading rumours that the court case has been cancelled, but can't find any reliable source to verify it.

Well I can say for sure... my money is staying with me. I was very keen on the idea of PST taking over the club and contributing, but the more that emerges during this saga the more I'm taking the view that we've had nothing but spin, hype and bull**** from all sides. As far as I can see... if this HNW developer hasn't got the spondoolies its game over.

Please be Real Madrid...please be Real Madrid!

Ok, despite the fact Real Madrid must 'owe us one' for Diarra, I'm a realist with who Pompey will face...I'll settle for a pre-season friendly at Fratton being against Barcelona!

On this day in history...25th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 25th May.

We know Danny you want to stay!

In case we had forgot Hollands has reminded us of his desire to stay with Pompey! I'm not 'desperate' either way in many ways but sorting this quickly would be best for all concerned.

Three more pre-season games announced

'Glamour ties' are loved but pre-season is about fitness and form so it doesn't matter if it's Barcelona or Bognor... Then again a trip to the Nou Camp wouldn't be turned down!
