When are football fans going to start realising that it is the players, their agents and their watertight contracts that a ripping them off. Do you really believe they care for you or the club? They will just move on. Anyone who uses taxpayers money to buy and pay players should be in gaol.

Unless the so called "consortium" have made a firm bid and have deyailed plans to pay off the debt and to get Portsmouth back on a paying basis, next Monday Portsmouth FC will cease trading.

Do any Portsmouth fans have faith in Mr Storrie?

In my opinion the club will be sold for free, just given away providing the South African consortium can prove they have the funds to save the club from liquidation.

You have to consider that the debt is 60m, if Gayadamak or Chanrai let the club be liquidated, combined they will lose 45m+, they hold 3/4 of the clubs debt and if given the chance to claw back all the money years down the line i'm sure they would take it, given the current situation at the club, it's all they can hope for.

Therefore, just in my opinion, the club will be sold to anyone who can pay of HM Revenue. With installment to be paid to Chanrai and Gaydamak after X amount of years.

Absolutely, the books should be made public and we can see what crooks have taken out.

Chanrai and Gaydamak are indeed the main creditors but they have both cunningly taken the ground and land in lieu of most of the monies owed to them. Should the worst happen, they are both sitting on a potential goldmine. Even Storrie let that slip in his rant on ESPN earlier.

Just get on with it and shut this dump of a club down once and for all.

Re:
This is the profile of CaptainBernard. Unfortunately CaptainBernard doesn't seem to have found the time to write anything by way of an introduction yet. But hopefully that will stay this way

This is like a comedy script. There is no white knight. Pompey gambled and lost. Now it's payback day.
