Is it true that Alex Tsiparis and Yannis Varoufakis have travelled to Portsmouth this weekend seeking advice on the options available to them to repay their debt on Tuesday?

 

Or that Peter Storey has been spotted wandering around Athens with a bookies pencil and a fag packet?

A former Pompey favourite has joined condemnation of the terrorist massacre in Tunisia that left 39 people dead.

Jed Wallace is one of thousands who have taken to Twitter to express shock and outrage at the atrocity.

 

 

And the lid is finally nailed down on the coffin of local papers.

If I'm reading that right, it says "global event with no specific local interest is commented upon in expected manner by no longer locally relevant person".

 

Wow, what a story.

Awkward question of the month -

 

Hey Penny, do you think the British taxpayer, the hardworking voters of Portsmouth, and the rest of Europe, should have to pick up the bill for a country like Greece that habitually borrows money it can never repay, enjoys spending way beyond its means and clearly has no intention of paying off debt?

Mack isn't big into myths - in relative terms, and I'm not talking sisters, he's the lone voice of reason down east.

He thinks they only make £10m each home game.

 

Mack ain't that f**kin silly, They seem to make enuff to keep the liying c***'s on the top table full of booze,

N as for the 'championship' standard floodlights, yer rite better lights in the tinfoil spare room cultivating Appy Bacy,

Is the relvolving door that is Pompey's recruitment spinning even faster? From team of the year striker to villan in one post season month would be some kind of record even for them, surely.

"Tubbs still has two year left on his Fratton Park contract though, and so AFC Wimbledon would need a hefty sum to prize the striker from the 2008 FA Cup winners"

 

I just had to laugh at that! That was seven years ago ... but they do love a bit of history.

Amended it to show balance. I realise that this is not the same Wimbledon, but then again, that was not the same Pompey either.

That would have been a wonderful outcome, The Portsmouth 'franchise' relocated to a more deserving locatation like Slough, a town with the potential to passionately support a team, that has been denied real football for to long!

"lactation" - what a strange auto-correct! Maidenhead United's (one of the oldest clubs in the country) favourite chant used to be "We hate Slough Town" to the tune of Land of Hope and Glory. I'm sure they could update that somehow.

Is Pompey Online still a virtual gated community or have they started letting new members join?

 

I tried to set up an account a few years back so that I could watch the hilarity but it seemed that they were so paranoid about scummaaaaas signing up (rightly in my case), that they just blocked everybody.

 

Is there a right of passage to prove that you really are a skate?

 

I own it now - you certainly ain't coming on ;)

 

Long time no speak my friendly neighbours. Amusing to see you nutjobs are keeping the thread alive ! heh !

Mero now You own ' Pompey fan online' This site charges £5 membership, you should do the same.

 

What would you do with £5?

Transform it into 20 pence over the course of 3 years and then start up a new forum whilst pretending that the bad parts of the old one never existed yet forever extolling how wonderful it was?

July 20th - whats happening ?

 

Creditor payment deadline, maybe to Chinny? It would be nice to see the return of Balram Chainrai

 

Feed us a little more Dubai Phil

In all fairness Mero the thread had sat quietly for a couple of days - until you banged it up the top again.

Please send the Ho over, we miss his ITK takeover teasers, his transfer rumours and of course his take on how the worlds of banking and finance operate.

its no different than when Gaydamak took over, no one knew who he was or how much money he had, he turned the club around. I am not going to sweat over the integrity of the new owners, like I said they have done more in 2-3 days than SAF did in 6 weeks, thats a start. There is nothing I can do to alter the situation or influence/change it and I still have a club to support which I would not have without Al Faraj, so whichever way you look at it times are better than they were

 

:lol:

 

It's been widely reported that the al Faraj takeover is a consortium so no suprise that others are involved.

 

I think you'll also find that I've mentioned a few times on here that I've been told that he has backing from a branch of the Saudi royal family. Whether that's true or not we'll have to wait and see.

 

Incidentally, given how secretive Faraj has been it's amazing to see how many papers are intimately aware of his plans, don't you think? Also, how amazing that all these people should be allegedly interested in investing in Pompey when everyone on here told me we'd struggle to find investors.

 

:lol:

oh no, don't start posting Ho's finest moments, those are right up there with the statue and Penny emptying Hilsea Lido in one go....

 

In fact I think we should put a list of Ho's quotes up on Itchen Bridge.

If you are at a dark point in your life, his story about the council giving pompey land to sell to Tesco for £20m would definitely cheer you up.

Just as the statue of Milan Krankie looking up at the bridge kept people from jumping all those years ago.

My favorite line was about 'Dr Fahim' and how we were going to 'feel pick sick' when we see the scale of his investment - PMSL

It would make the money Abramovich put into Chelsea look like pocket money, don't you know?

The bottom line is that despite the title of this thread, the takeover has NOT collapsed, Al Fahim has NOT failed the FPPT, we are NOT going down and we are NOT going into administration.

 

You might as well lock this one down, because remember: "It's the hope that kills you".

 

This one is a classic.

I don't think Saints are in the FA Vase?

 

Joking aside, it's good to see our occasional Portsmouth contributors doing their bit to raise the laugh quotient on this thread - a very succesful intervention, I must say although that may be the product also of half a Piemonte white and half a bottle each of a Tuscan white then red.

Just had a quick look at their pre season fixtures .... looks like they are checking out what life will be like playing non league in 2016/17 :lol:

 

Havant and Waterlooville, Bognor Regis, Gosport Borough, Woking and Gillingham :scared: To be fair some pretty big local derbies in there, and no excuses for 250.000 of the finest to not make their way to each fixture with such short travelling distances!!

 

Even Eastleigh have a better build up including games v Crawley and Swindon :lol:

 

I won't even bother mentioning ours versus the likes of Valencia, Feyenoord and Espanyol ..... ooops I believe I just did :D

That's all I know as fact. Payments day.

 

Then we all can speculate what happens if they can't pay or if they try the 4p in the pound game.

 

Then we can wonder who is out of work these days with links down that way and we can all realise the dream ticket of Milan & "Arry are out of work and a bit flush having been paid off and bought out. So they have a bill to pay. probably where the Tescos' money will go.

 

Assuming the top table didn't drink all that of course.

Last post today surprised we missed this yesterday, specially as Gay Dad's March was mentioned

 

Seems he is accused of misappropriating almost as much as pcfc from other people

 

The gift that keeps giving, So many opportunities :suspicious:
