    I know we've heard this for three years now, but today it feels as close as it's ever been.
    What do you mean, if they beat Charlton? They're nailed on to win, the bookies won't even offer me odds on Pompey losing.

    The real reason they bottled promotion.
    So, that would be match-fixing?

From 2019 an agreed new five-year deal will pay £120m annually. In agreements struck to govern the relationship between the Premier League, which was a breakaway in 1992 from more equal sharing in the Football League, the top flight pays £100m in “solidarity” to lower leagues, including £4.3m to the Championship clubs.
    On that basis you are aiming to be relegated to D4 as it is financially more sustainable with lower wages and similar gate income?

    but surely there are other streams of income if you had gone through your glass ceiling. You would sell out every game..well most, the ticket prices would go up as you wont have to slash them anymore or give away and of course merchandise streams may increase.
    If only a small increase in revenue is a problem then you may as well stay where you are. Im sure I wont shed any tears if you don't go up.

    Their gap-toothiest of fans are making all kinds of excuses as to why they "didn't want to get promoted" but the one I like best is avoiding having to pay a previous owner £5m when they "get to the PL" when it's worth around £170m even if a club is just up for 1 season. Thick fookers.

    Hasn't he got this confused with the crowd control paraphernalia left over from the Pompey promotion celebration party...? Oh...

    Could they sell one of the other stands to Lidl therefore providing competition for Tesco? Three stands I am sure is the way to go, plus people could do their shopping and watch a bit of footie on the way out.

    Aye, but no chance of your money back if you don't like the product.

    Southsea Common is awash with caravans as travellers have moved on next to the D-Day event...
    This will be an interesting test of Hampshire police powers - and whether they can be bothered to use them.
    Having the FBI on side probably gives them the edge.

    Would Lidl want their brand tarnished by association? Even Anusol would refuse

    The FBI is for domestic affairs, not state trips to Portsea island.

    But the Government has already helped out by writing off that massive Tax Bill a few years ago. The CEO seems to have forgotten that.

    Thanks, I hadn't seen the news and went and saw an article in The Guardian. He seemed to be doing things the right way; learning his managerial trade and working up the leagues. What a great shame.

    They are spending the forthcoming Clarke transfer money on laying a `Premiership standard' pitch to play their League 1 games. With Man U and Liverpool entering teams into the Checkatrade Trophy next season they will want to impress.

    Not much use if you've only got Championship-standard floodlights, so those are getting replaced as well. Factless says they're iconic

    Borrowing money again to make the 'improvements'. I expect it is all part of the plan to make themselves 'premiership ready' when they 'decide' it is the right time to go up.
