    So a multi millonaire, yes. A billionaire, no.

    And, for comparison, Katharina is worth $3 billion
    The wealth of ML was grossly undervalued / unreported at 3bn

    On the train to Fratton... remind me to upload the pic from the train of the bloke in the Skate cap with the mouse ears later.

    Hmm, I wonder who they're playing? ;-) Good luck and hope your record continues.

    They're winning 2-0, and all the teams below them are slipping up at the moment. Promotion is looking like a certainty.

    A new low?
    That would be an achievement.

    So if they get to Div 1 and with a billionaire owner they would be in a better position than we were on minus 10. They should get 3 successive promotions, no problem.

    indeed. Quite how a less deserving club keep coming up roses is beyond me.

    They're not in that great a position. They have a ricketty old stadium, no established academy like we had, and a bunch of journeymen.

    6 points ahead of the play-off places now, surely not even Portsmouth could screw this up?

    They got away with it, they havent really had the medicine they really should have. If Eisner takes them on they have got another get out of jail card

    Lighten up, it'll still be funny!
    They've been telling us for five years how they don't want to be involved in bigger games, they are happiest owning their own club with proper football in the lower divisions - the complete opposite to Mr Disney's plan.
    Then we'll have the discovery that the sheets of A4 were donations, the Trust will be split over the takeover, they'll try to retain power, all set against the backdrop of a midtable League One season of mediocre disappointment - it'll be hilarious.
    Meanwhile they'll be needing approx 10m to get into the Championship and 50m+ to sort out the ground.
    It'll be interesting to see the look on Mr Eisner's face when he gets into the detail of the current business - he needs very deep pockets linked to low expectations.
    Once again you look at the owner and wonder what is in it for him?

    The last time I asked that question the answer proved to be money laundering and a dodgy property development.

    Exactly. And they definitely won't want an identikit stadium as Fratton Park atmosphere is the stuff of legends. Just ask Henry.

    This absolutely, the comedy goes on - who would have thought an unflushable turd could provide so much entertainment?

    This thread has years to run yet :-)

    Are they about to be taken over then?

    We could have a thread about that.

    Even when they are owned lock, stock and barrell by yet another foreign businessman with no previous connection to the club you can absolutely guarantee they will find some way of describing themselves as [the biggest ever] fan-owned club.

    you forget that when they were in front of the High Court judge on of their former leaders wrote their business plan on the back of a fag packet. I suspect they will iron it out (unlike the sheet on their conference table) and put that under Eisners eyes

    Just... why?

    County probably worth a point yesterday in the end, but didn't get going until the hour. Skates looked anything but assured in the last 20.

    It's already written in cast iron stone as a Portsmyth. They invented that song, and no other facts are going to stop them from saying it.

    I'm fairly sure I've got a video of Saints fans singing it at one of our European Away games from as little as 4 months ago (or 3 and a half months before Portsmouth invented it, if you like)... Which is not to suggest we invented it either, we definitely nicked it from someone else, and I first heard it in Israel.
