Surely this is not a fair fight. They can't even field a full match-day squad FFS! The football league need to take a long hard look at themselves, as this is making a mockery of competitiveness.

 

What's that? It's Yeovil that have only got 5 on the bench? Oh well, carry on then.

HT #pompey 0 #ytfc 2 - Two goals conceded from dreadful defending. No attack worth mentioning. Rightfully booed off at half time.

Fact is we've regressed badly under the current management. Worst#Pompey side in my lifetime. Players rightfully booed and jeered.

Come on Trousers you nutjob.

 

There's enough to laugh about with out making stuff up ;)

 

Obviously none of what you've posted is true as PFCknob told us that pompey fans never boo their team, ever.

 

I wonder what today's excuse will be? Wouldn't it make a refreshing change though if the one time tin pot journalist of the year, knobhead neil, wrote a piece in their rag that was something along the lines of the truth - not expecting the whole truth as they've had far too many court cases to rely on that! - but something like : "we were pants today, Yeovil out played us, we were woeful in defence and had no idea what to do going forward, we deserved to lose". Would be a refreshing change to hear something like that rather than the usual, plucky bestest losing to a handful of freak goals, should have had all three points etx etc.

Thi I Neil's taken the day off today so not sure which super journo is writing the obituary tonight.

I'm enjoying seeing the likes of Shrewsbury trickle further and further away from the few. Now 12 points off safety after the deduction! If anyone is feeling a little down about the Stoke result, then this will surely cheer you up. Yeovil FFS! These teams aren't big enough to grace the Fratton turf let alone take the 3 points! (or so they think)

Question

 

Why do they keep referring to themselves as a Community owned club when even if it goes through the fans won't own more than the developers. Isn't that just a group of business men owning a football club? Like most other teams but without the money?

 

Moreover, they are not even run by the so called 'community' thus far. They are in admin, and even the ground ownership is up in the air.

 

So who will take on these burning issues? Why, Neil Allen of course, that bastion of investigative journalism with a tenacious hunger for the truth! When he smells a dirty rat at Fratton Park (and not the ones that are the true cause of the blocked pipes), he is sure to leap into action with his trademark catchphrases of "Sad saints fans obviously have nothing better to do than stir", "I'm not going to investigate things just because other teams fans' ask me to" and "bored now, blocking you on twitter", and his favourite "One article - 240 paragraphs. I'm a genius"

 

Just remember Neil, don't comprimise your Journalistic integrity by getting too close to, or becoming the story - by such methods as purchasing shares and encouraging your readers to take out loans to do the same! Looking forward to the usual monday spin of Yeovil Tactics being booed at half time by the passionate home crowd, downpour forming a river of hope, and the New Year bringing New Cheer for the worlds biggest community owned club.

People wonder why nutjobs post on this thread.

 

Have to say at the moment you'd think that by reading our main thread it was US who were in the mess that the Skates are in judging by what the manic depressives are posting about following a game we expected to get tonked in.

 

Thank The Lord for the insanity of the phew

I couldn't agree more. I read this thread and know that all is well in the world! This thread is peopled by those whose outlook on life is one of blue skies, rainbows and fluffy puppies. Always brings a smile to my face.

Draft Press Release.

 

A New Year, a fresh start, and a chance for the brave old girl to shrug off the dirty criminals and seedy chancers who have sullied the fine name of the top club this side of London.

And if the supporters do take control of the tiller and guide the proud old ship to safety on an ever-swelling river of dreams, it will be a shining beacon for lesser clubs to follow - a small blue light of opportunity to guide them from the darkness of insolvency, a light held bravely, and shining not just across Portsea, but lighting the whole of the UK.

 

pompey supporters will be showing football a new way, the most passionate supporters in the land will be taking smaller less passionate clubs by the hand and ushering them into a new era for the world game.

 

So in 2013 pompey could become the first fan-owned club in the world, but there are one or two minor stumbling blocks.

People associated with the club have in the past committed crimes, that has never been denied, Micah Hall has pioneered research and uncovered irregularities, it has taken detective work by pompey fans to bring this to the attention of the press.

It's not the first time the fans have stood up for justice - let's not forget how the bitter Premier League was forced into a U-turn after mass demonstrations by the faithful, and how the recent glorious adjournement was only secured when a minibus of protesters gridlocked the capital and made the world take notice.

 

But there have been no crimes committed by the club itself, only by people who had portsmouth FC on their business cards at the time of their crimes, and who were controlling club money and celebrating on the field success at Fratton Park.

Some of the so-called crimes were just unfortunate timing, a bank calling in a loan, the world recession, all things that have occurred have mainly been bad luck.

So plucky old pompey is cleared of all charges, but there are other minor rubber-stamping issues to deal with if that proud beacon of hope is to be sparked and lit by the flints of ambition.

 

The evil league continues to threaten yet another ridiculous points penalty, even though the club has already been punished.

Hopefully the challenge to that ruling will see justice done.

 

The creditors are happy, the charities have been paid, the club has cleared debts that were not even owed by them, but nasty Portpin still insist on a payoff.

But there is no money, the club has been bled-dry by evil hangers on - all that remains in the current account is the passion and loyalty of the famous blue army - worth more than gold.

 

The club now has the lowest wagebill in the history of world football, the transfer embargo means that the club cannot pay players anything at all.

All of the current brave troops are paying for their own hotels because they know what an honour it is to run out in front of a packed Fratton Park.

 

Whether those draconian restrictions have made the league unfair is for others to debate.

All the club asks is for a chance to compete on a level playing field, currently it is not fair - but you don't see the players moaning, they just defiantly get on with it, racking up win after win and silencing the doubters.

 

And this has all happened because of things beyond the control of the football club, but the guilty have been rightly chased out of town by the plucky Portsea people.

 

The criminals have long gone, leaving behind only the echoes of despair and the bitter tears of the past, but when gathered with the warmth of the community, this combination could germinate a seed of belief.

 

 

Battles may be lost but the city was built on sterner stuff - the people lost, but they never lost belief.

Let's not forget the famous dock strike when neighbouring cities stole work and scab workers ate babies.

Did pompey the city give in? No they stood as one, defiant and proud, with dirt on their hands, springs in their steps, and hope in their hearts.

 

So when the gentle spring tides wash that solitary seed onto a beach warmed by the first thin sun of 2013, the fresh greenshoot that emerges could grow into a sturdy sapling which could then be fashioned by those loyal supporters into a baton of hope - a baton that they can proudly carry forward and plant as a defiant flagpole for the future.

 

 

But before that seed of hope can be planted, the supporters have to satisfy Portpin and see off their ridiculous valuation of the ground.

 

Hopefully a judge will see sense and side with the good guys, but the club has been so harshly treated by the courts and the football authorities of late that there may be another battle to win.

 

It will be a battle for the very ground that Avram stood on when he made his famous rousing speech, the turf on which Dickinson strolled, the grass that Quinn glided across, the very mud that a charity cheque was bounced upon.

Alan Knight may have laid on that ground sobbing like a girl as Moran wheeled away, but he never surrendered, he didn't know when he was beaten, and it's that spirit that will be needed for the challenges of 2013.

 

2012 was a good year for pompey with a glorious last-minute draw at St Marys, continuity in the dugout and on the pitch, firm consolidation just outside the Premier League, progress behind the scenes, but this fresh launch platform for a return to European competition mustn't be wasted.

The Trust is ready to bankroll the club back to glory right now, the squad is up for the fight, the fans are packing the park, we just need the judge to make the right call and 2013 could see pompey right back where they belong.

I don't understand the contracts. Are players free to leave next week? Surely they can't get transfer fees for them? But they've loaned some out, despite not being able to sign them. Bizarre.

 

If one of the league's top scorers doesn't want to leave his short term contract at a relegation bound broke club in administration, then something is seriously wrong.

Free to leave when their contracts expire.. think the majority of 1 monthers are up on the 16th.

 

They have loaned the players out to get them off the wage bill and bring in different players.

Nice piece Neil, erm, I mean Rallyboy.

 

I'm assuming that at least some of the 11 HNWs are starting to wonder whether their weekly injections are actually worth it at this point now. They're in the drop zone and have 10 points to come off so you'd have to think that the HNWs keeping the club afloat are better off watching the inevitable player exodus, reducing the outgoings and accepting relegation so they can divert wasted player salaries into a bit of extras for any post-court fighting fund. I'd certainly like to be a fly on the wall at their meetings. I bet there's a fair amount of division going on. Lots of egos at work etc.

A New Year, a fresh start, ...

Well, that's one part which is true. :D

I think TCWTB should go on Dragon's Den, even those hard nosed business people seem to buy into the Bestest fans myth.

In fairness, I did hear that their booing was very passionate.

Just a quick one, fellas: I'm sure I recall they did a ticket offer recently - something like 2 adults & 2 kids for £20 rings a bell - can anyone remember what game it was, the details, or can you point me to the link or page on here. I can't find it and have to win an argument with a skate chump online. This is a serious business. :)

Sarah's back on the News.

 

http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/sport/pompey/whittingham-bemoans-costly-errors-at-the-back-1-4629510

 

Here's the problem.

 

If Chanrai can show (a) anyone on the planet is willing to offer him more than £2.7m for his charge OR (b) his charge is worth more than £2.7m OR © the Trust and their property developers can't/won't pay £2.7m, this game is over. Most likely, their hapless, amateur bid fails at point A. It's that simple. (On balance, it looks like the Chanrai charge over Fratton and floating charge over all club assets is worth about £5m-£7m).

 

The Trust has failed to explain how either (a) they will reduce severance payments to ex-players by £6m (from the £8m agreed to the £2m in thier business plan) or (b) how the on-running costs of PKF and the players, which have now about emptied any bank balance, alters their plans or © how they have re-adjusted their plans in light of very low revenues (and low-ish attendances) at Fratton or (d) how their plans look different in League 2, with releagtion now a 1/10 certainty according to most betting markets.

 

I'd seriously advise against giving £1K to the Trust in these circumstances. And I'm already considering referring them to the FSA in a personal capacity.

 

You will not be buying a "share" in the sense that people understand, you will be throwing your money into a bucket that might - just might - (with one hell of a following wind) make Colin Farmery a very junior and (IMHO) totally hapless partner to a consortium of property developers.

 

If you have been witless enough to hand over a grand, I suggest you ask for your £997.50 back and put it down to experience.

 

I'm so sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings. I wish the Trust bid had been run competently and seriously. I wish The News had shown the wit to back a proper community-run club

 

Sadly, neither has happened. Utterly incompetent journalism and a lunatic bunch of wannabe uber-fans are now killing the club. Pains me to say it. But someone has to.

 

She makes a fair point or two.
