Storrie Keeps his job, 85 ordinary people lose theirs... Discuss...
Deserving of it's own thread... The fact that Peter Storrie, architect of Pompey's demise, keeps his job whilst a staggering 85 ordinary people lose theirs, people with mortgages and average wages.
The icing on the cake was a retraction from South Today who apologised for getting Storrie's wages wrong...
He's not on £500,000
He's on £300,000
You couldn't make it up...
I want as many of the hopeless, greedy, muppets that got Pompey into this mess to stay there ruining them for years. End of.
This is already on the official thread.
He is so mired into the "dysfunctional" workings at the club that the longer he is there, the more mud ( as it rises to the surface) will come out and stick to him.

I still am dumbfounded that the CEO is still in place, I would have thought gardening leave would be the least the admionistrator would put him on.
I don't understand what he is actually doing. Whilst in administration, the Android is for all intents and purposes acting CEO, makes all the decisions (financially and operationally). Get rid of him and you could fund 100 tea ladies.
Yes I am annoyed that Storrie has lost his job.
However that is balanced out with the joy that 85 skates are joining the rest of the slum in poverty.
Apart from literally being redundant since the administrator will be fulfilling most of Storries functions - how can they keep on a CEO who has been charged with criminal wrongdoing at the club - ie tax evasion? Stinks of something - dead fish proabably.

I guess if he is released, he may cry wolf about the money laundering ring?
Or is he sticking firm to his employment contract terms for a big payoff, regardless of the damage it does to the 'club he loves' blah blah blah
what does really annoy me is that IF STORRIE WALKED AWAY, AT LEAST HALF OF THE 85 SACKED YESTERDAY COULD HAVE KEPT THERE JOBS!!! Disgusting...
Will the fans be singing, 'there's only one peter storrie' on the weekend!?!
I also note only David James (well done to him at least) has offered to defer there wages to save regular employees from the dole queue.
Skates FC = The shame of 'the beautiful game'
Probably kept his job so that they know where to find him when the unravel the mess.

That's 85 more to add to our ever growing benefit snatchers.
How else can they afford their white lightning and reebok classics?
What I don`t fully understand is how they are going to cut the wage bill by 50% just by axing 85 "foot soldiers". The biggest wage earners are the players (whose wages are protected by the PFA) and execs. I wonder just what percentage was saved by yesterdays action.
Storrie will be there to the death, I would suggest the puppet master running the admin(at the mo) is all to aware that Storrie, if set adrift, could cum his guts at any minute putting a load of them and more importantly their money at risk, imo of course.
That is probably closer to the truth.

Very sad to see.
What I don't understand is why redundancy procedure does not appear to have been followed. There was no consultancy period at all (legal requirement when making over 20 staff redundant)?
Does this period automatically start once in administration? If so, surely the redundant employees can make a tribunal claim as they are not in administration.
I was saddened that no saints players (to my knowledge) deferred their wages or as in the case of Tomasi at Roma said donít pay me more than expenses.

I don't think the Saints players or the Pompey players have any better/worse ethics than the other. I still hate Pompey though!
