"A locally based registered architect, Mike was elected to the PST Board in September 2011 with a manifesto based on engaging fans input..."

 

Nice engagement there Mike, very stylish. I have to agree though, you are dealing with a bunch of muppets. Anyone who thinks you need a proper architect to design a fence and a car park needs their head examined. I mean, we're not talking underwater casinos here.

POL still showing heavy signs of delusion

 

Pompey reach the 3rd round and draw the scummers away who inflict the biggest beating in the rivalry. That's my biggest fear.

 

My biggest fear also - big defeat and possible crowd trouble resulting in various fines and sanctions - I don't want to be playing scum until we are both in Championship in three seasons time.....

 

mine to.

Don't want to play them again until we have been bought out by billionaires who spend obscene amounts on players

 

If I was a TV exec, that would be the first game to go for televising - 2 clubs rising from the ashes, potential upset on the cards for a 'big' club against non league opposition (just to show how the mighty have fallen), local derby and decent atmosphere. Then chuck in the mix how football ownership is a hot topic of conversation at the moment (not just Leeds - Birmingham, Watford, Cardiff can be thrown in the mix there too), and Pompey's model of ownership would be a good contrast.

For an underwater casino surely you need a Naval Architect!

That's what happens when these little clubs give power to locals who have gathered most of their corporate expertise through selling the contents of their loft on an overloaded decorating table in a breezy field on a Sunday morning.

 

I don't see a lot of quality on that board, enthusiasm yes, but you need business acumen to run a business, and you need it in every dept.

 

Let's not forget the former hero and finance expert Lampitt.

He was the man with the plan, but he just followed the mistakes of the past and shoved them off on another suicide mission.

Despite the spin to the contrary, I'm not sure that much has changed since those hilarious days.

 

 

And like Lord T, I'm curious to know why the PFA still hold charges if the nasty old players really have been paid.

No doubt this will be addressed shortly by the local media, along with the Tesco situation and Connolly's silence.

Can't see the bigger Tesco issues having any impact on this project at all.

 

This site is strategic for many supermarkets in Portsmouth as there is a lack of a 21st century type store within the city. Tesco in particular have been working on a site in central Portsmouth for a good decade. They now have one with planning permission (PEL will build and own the site, Tesco will rent it - they rent virtually all their stores as a matter of company policy going back years). Sainsburys were also active in this part of Portsmouth. There's a lot of dwellings not currently served by a big type supermarket.

 

As stated above, full planning approval was only granted last week. It took over a year to gain, so hardly the 'rushed through' that was suggested above.

 

I'd expect to see work on site at the end of the year/ early next year

 

http://fansonline.net/portsmouth/mb/view.php?id=563383

 

As someone who has been involved in parts of the Tesco deal, I was always under the impression the target was 'November' as opposed to the more specific '1st November.'

 

The whole deal (land swaps/ legals etc) between all parties is days away from being signed off (inc Tesco's). I understand we should see visible signs of site works being set up on the land behind the North Stand before the end of November

 

What's a little inconsistency between architects? The good thing though the latest news is much more positive.

A little googling shows that the Septic Isle has a Morrisons, ASDA and Sainsbury.

pompey would love to play us. Just think of the revenue they would get in. Let them fade away ,big pay days keep them alive.

 

exactly, first round knock out is perfect. No prize money, no future gate receipts, no TV money, p/55ed off fan base.

In all fairness they tick most of those boxes already so I think I'd be generous enough to give them a full house and the financial benefits for a 10-0 home defeat.

 

 

Sadly, if it did happen we'd put out a youth team so it would be more like 5-0.

do you think that they will have a full house and all that it brings if they play most other clubs??

Bumper pay-days have kept them alive for this long, i can live quite happily if we never have to play them again, but i suppose im not a bragger who needs to be able to lord it over them. Im happy with the quiet smugness that they are down in the depths and they are looking up with fury and envy.Give them nothing to soothe their pain

And on top of that, let us continue to ignore Bompey down the road (which annoys the hell out of them).

 

And then thanks to agent Artur, next season the fishy ones will look upward in apoplexy when El South Coast Classico gets played in the EPL between us and the Play off winning Bompey boys while they look forward to a bumper local derby with Eastleigh.

 

Now THAT set of circumstances would be a way to celebrate 2500 pages of this thread

They are always "close", always "next week" "next month" or "next year". Never "now".

 

Comical.

No no. Everything is absolutely crystal clear, as confirmed formally by Mr. Riddle, who is a proper architect AND a proper director. So if anybody should know, he's the man:

 

The ongoing discussions were to do with the legal tie ups, land swaps etc to get to the planning approval - all must have been completed to get the sign off on Friday.

 

The legal agreement between PEL and PFC has been finalised and is currently being given a final check through. Once everyone is happy, the land swap will occur and the club will get the cash sum

 

The whole deal (land swaps/ legals etc) between all parties is days away from being signed off (inc Tesco's).

 

Time seems to go backwards down on the Isle.

Good grief...

 

Portsmouth Football Club would like to wish Chris Johnson a very Happy Birthday.

You have also been left this special message: “Happy Birthday, Bugalugs! Play up Pompey! Love, Lugabugs x”

We hope you have a great day, Chris.

This announcement was made possible thanks to a generous contribution made to Andy Awford’s Pompey academy fanfunding campaign.

Can't even spell "vain". Idiots.

 

Also, who knew Stoke had already played the Skates in the tournament? Not me...

 

And with an away attendance of 894 it would appear that not many Pompey fans* knew about it either

 

(*best fans in the world TM)

It's about rival shipping ports, but then again it's not really. For Portsmouth and Southampton fans, hatred of the other is something that just is, passed on from generation to generation. Yet their divergent fortunes have brought hostilities to an indefinite halt, and they can now bond over a shared dislike of Harry Redknapp.

Not sure I agree with the last sentiment as there are plenty of f**kwit skates who want Saggy Chops back!

So, let's just recap a little here.

 

The Tesco deal will mean all is a go-go by 1 November.

 

And it's still on.

 

Despite a Serious Fraud Office investigation into Tesco.

 

And Tesco pulling back in general from superstores.

 

Shovels on site!

In Todays Sun, Redknapp on Twitter

 

 

'I genuinely don't understand it, I've never read it, I don't even know where you get it from'

 

seems to be forgetting the ill-fated Redknapp twitter Q&A last year.

 

He can't open his mouth without lying.

Some of the dumb bastards even think that the other clubs are trying harder to keep them down because their MASSIVE attendances are good for the finances http://fansonline.net/portsmouth/mb/view.php?id=563178

 

Deluded doesn't quite cut it with that lot does it?

 

:mcinnes:

 

That is beyond mental. Yeah there's a slight bump in general interest due to their recent Premier League past, but beyond that and their above average League 2 attendances (er, wooh?) they're not given any extra thought.

Don't forget, unlike his slimy predecessor, our current manager takes cups seriously.

 

10-0 home defeat it is then.

It's also nice to see that, although they're not actually looking for a striker, they would take him on because they like him. It's great that money isn't a problem for them any more. Especially now that they've only got 36 in their squad.
