    Not sure if anyone's seen this yet but apparently we are like Leyton Orient and they are like Liverpool....http://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/footbal...th/news/44794/

    'I watched the Liverpool game the other night and it reminded me so much of us. They’ve got top class players and even they struggled to break Southampton down. We know it will be no different, but we need to start putting points on the board if we want to achieve our goals.

    The fact they hadn't sold enough tickets for that to be an issue was the interesting bit.

    As for the match, yeah, County went 2-0 up and completely deserved it, then fell apart as they have been all season. Enjoyed it hugely for an hour though! Still, County have signed 9 free transfers/loans so when I go to Fratton in a couple of months they might be up for a 4th successive win at Fratton.

Time will tell I guess, but I wouldn't laugh too loudly too soon if I were you. I'm not party to the whole thing but if the rumour about where the money's coming from (and how much of it there is ready to be used on players and improving the club) are true you lot are going to be pig sick.



    Err, I think you'll find that Pompey's position is built on loans from banks rather than any money from Gaydamak. Britain's position in the world however is more than partly built on arms dealing. If you really find arms dealing that distasteful and want to assume a moral high ground I suggest you emigrate.



    I assume you're talking about Hydra Properties here. Rather than being "sacked" Al Fahim is no longer CEO of Hydra but is still a main board director of the company. As for raising the money from Abu Dhabi, that's not where it's rumoured to be coming from. Try Germany.
    Still fantastic to read

Given that his background is in property development I suspect that he's going to leverage the goodwill he'll generate from the council to make money from property development once the market picks up. He's already said he's in this for the long haul so there's no quick buck.



    The media have been banging on about the fit and proper test ever since his bid became public. Plenty of them reported that Shinawatra was involved (5 Live included) which turned out to be completely false. Pompey and Al Fahim have been unusually tight lipped over the details on this one and none of the media have been right about any of it at any stage of the process. Al Fahim knows what the PL need for the FAPPT and I can't see how he would make any mistakes in what he presents to them. Can't see this test being a stumbling block. Only problem I can see is if Gaydamak refuses to drop the price or if there's an issue with terms of bank loan repayments and the way they're structured/ paid etc.



    You lot make me laugh. "Back where they belong" "Back where we belong". Look chaps, we are where we belong because we won enough points to stay in the Prem. You're where you belong because you ****ed up your chance when you refused to buy good enough players and pay decent salaries and then weren't good enough to avoid two (count them) relegations.

    You are where you belong. You've earned the right to be there. Just like we have.

    Nothing says "competent and professional ownership" more than a badly dressed bunch of muppets sipping pints of lager resting on a wallpaper table with a creased sheet on it.

    To stop the supporters getting out? I guess if they can't leave early, all they've got left is to boo.

    What a surprise that he hasn't posted since 2012. The gigantic skate bellend.

    I miss those days. I spent the hours in between lectures at university browsing this thread. The numerous court proceedings, along with the Pompey News webchats, were superb fun. I kind of want them to get a couple of promotions and then for it to go wrong again.

    The only thing missing is a victory against them. 12 years and counting, that's half my lifetime!
