The Saga Continues

2 10 2009

I am not going to go on about the in’s and outs of the Pompey takeover saga, but there are a few things that you should know:

  • We have sold all of our best players
  • We are bottom of the league without a win in 7 games
  • We have been sold to Abu Dhabi businessman Suliman Al Fahim
  • He has so far not put any money into the club
  • We are being kept afloat by the kindness of banks (that is something that I never thought I would say)
  • Our chairman had a consortium, with money willing to take over

OK, so that is quite a lot of things that you should know.  It puts us in trouble, really deep, not getting out of it at the last minute trouble.  So far this week, the players have not been paid, the chairman has said that we are broke and facing administration.  Now to top it all off, the new owner is in hospital.  My guess is that its a mental hospital, as he has delusions of being a oil billionaire.

Peter Storrie is a good man, and a good chairman, if only we could have sold to him we would have been ok.  But we didn’t, and now we are screwed.  All of this, a year on from playing AC Milan in the UEFA cup.  How the semi-mighty have fallen.
