What happens if storrie and grant leave?

Premier League Portsmouth

comment on the article

I was wondering if they both leave what is the impact of this on PFC? I admit grant leaving will be a massive blow but if all the best players have gone we are going down anyway so even the best manager in the world would struggle to keep us up. If storrie leaves would that affect the club? He is left out anyhow would we miss him? Or is it because it is symptomatic of the bigger problem.
I realise I am probably missing something very obvious but I really was just wondering.

haha Im guessing apart from me(Aston Villa)and feelin_blue(U1930180)who is obviously Portsmouth everyone else is a saints fan! feelin_blue (U1930180) Dont rise to it fella.

And mxriderktm you sound like if I was having a bad time and phoned the Samaritans and spoke to you by the end of the conversation I would be talking you out of doing somthing daft! :-)

I still believe they are 3 worse teams than pompy in the devision (as the team stands) But you really have to keep the rest of the playing staff. (And keep them fit)

All this antipathy towards Storrie. Thank your lucky stars you didn't get Peter Ridsdale. Close to destroying his second club.

feelin_blue
smellyneo - he is not being personally charged, it is as CEO of Portsmouth FC and as representative of the club,
==========================================

Are you sure about that?
See below:

Mr Storrie, 57, appeared at Southwark Crown Court accused of one count of cheating the public revenue between 1 July 2003 and 28 November 2007.
He is accused of concealing a signing-on fee for a midfielder.
He spoke only to confirm his name and the case was adjourned until 15 April when he is due to enter a plea.
============================================

It says "Mr Storrie", not Portsmouth FC represented by Mr Storrie.
So he is personally being charged, unless you have "facts" to prove otherwise.

As CEO, he must take a major share of the blame for this mess.
He is one of the highest paid directors in the PL, no wonder he won't walk.

This reminds me of last season. Sold all the players from under the previous manager. Then he got the blame for results and was sacked.
He was no more to blame as the current manager who will be left with a depleted squad.
This is all desparate stuff to avoid going into administration, so has to happen.
It rather beggars the question, why did an Arab with no money buy the club?

I have nothing but empathy for you Feelin_blue. Saints took stick from all corners over our last two relegations. There always seems to be a Villa fan not far away to make silly comments. Its a completely hopeless situation. Keep going to the games, keep cheering the team on and keep the faith.

Storrie has left every club he has been involved in ie, WestHam, Southend,NottsCounty in a mess & true to form he is about to leave Pompey in a mess.

The only reason he hasnt walked is because of the 35 grand a week plus expences hes on. Just hope the Southwark Courts do every Pompey fan a good turn & put him where he belongs behind bars.

And he'll claim it wasn't his doing. Again.
