Nothing we do not already know but lol at Storries comments. The poor boy is exhausted

 

"It is heading for administration and that will make us a pretty good bargain, so I would imagine someone will pick the club up quickly enough."

 

PMSL :lol: Why does he keep trying to lie? Surely now is the time to resign, bugger-off quietly and work out your defence to the criminal charges against you.

Meanwhile, news is emerging on the failed takeover plan from lifelongafrikaaner.

 

"Sources suggest that the deal faltered over the plans to adopt the World Famous concept of the first ever Monkey Petting Zoo at Fratton Park.

 

It seems that the bidders over estimated the enthusiasm of the loyal fan base to help save the club when a key fan refused to sign up.

 

A spokesman said - Vee hole Theeng was orl dun. Wee ad vee agreement weeth vee supplier of vee rotten tomatoes and vee stale bananas. Eets a reel shame as we filt that our TCWTB Pelting Zoo would ave been a great success weeth vee away fans gratelee enhancing are match day reevenoos.

 

TCWTB was not believed to be available to make a comment."

Parallels

 

OK so it relates to a different club and different problems but it does show how lucky we are and the extent to which La La Land comes into play when idiots get to run a football club. Beckham? 40 Grand in Chauffeur Bills Lol

Parallels indeed. I liked this bit:

 

A winding-up petition was issued by HMRC for an unpaid tax bill of over £600,000, yet it was a reality Trembling refused to accept.

 

Now who does that remind me of? :smt044 On the other hand, at least Trembling put a considerable sum of his own money into Notts.

I was asked about a million pages back, by someone who knows it all, to back up a statement about the PL and insolvency. He claimed there was nothing in the PL's rules to govern it............I think this says it all thank you.

Oh well so much for my prediction that nothing much would happen yesterday! Do you think I should try predicting the same for today?

 

How will admin affect the court case from Campbell? I assume the case will be cancelled and he will join the list of creditors? He did say in his interview the other week that he was not alone in that situation so may see other creditors appear. Hopefully each will be ticked of against the SoA to make sure vantis included them?

 

Talking of the SoA if it assumed they were going to be 17th then its now something of a work of fiction in places I assume?

For those who struggle to read all the pages each day to keep up, here is a very well constructed blog/article that hits a lot of nails on the head and also an interesting comment.

 

http://www.twohundredpercent.net/?p=4582

 

A decent summary, though it would have been better if the writer hadn't referred more than once to "Friday's court hearing". Getting details of that sort wrong tends to reduce the credibility of the whole article, which is unfortunate. Interesting comment following the article as well.

is there a possibility that chainrai could be planning a prepack administration? might that work for him?

 

Don't think its ever happened at a football club before- presumably would still have to pay up HMRC and footy debts or incur more points penalties.

 

I believe Derby was a prepack administration

What is in it for Chainrai ?

The amount its going to cost him to keep them going through administration will cost him what ?? £8m for a couple of months ???

What will he expect to gain from this ??

 

Add that to what he has already put in surely he would be better off letting them go under on Monday ?

I think, that if you read it, there are several points. My main point however, is that there is in fact, rules in place that govern Insolvency.

I think he's done a deal with the PL. PFC will get to the end of the season and go into admin if you give us all the parachute monies

 

With Chainrai it will be because one way or another he's getting more of his money back

That was while they were competing on an even playing field. Now they have accepted administration and all but certain relegation then one would expect that the PL chairmen would look more kindly on advancing them money, or at least making it easier for them to borrow now against future parachute payments.

I dont see how anyone could "run" this club in administration. surely they would have to run this bussiness with out incuring an increasing debt. As it stands it looks like they are incuring an extra £2m per month debt. There looks like they have sold every sellable assett and cant sell the players till the summer. The opportunity to rescue via administration died at the end of the January transfer window.

 

Surely all an administrator could do is sell the club to the non existant buyers or wind it up. all adminstraion will do is buy them 2 weeks?

Questions:

 

1. If the SoA makes it clear that Admin cannot work (as surely it must do), can HMRC ask the court to put Administration aside and carry on with the WUO?

 

2. If Chainrai support the club to the tune of £3m per month - i.e. hands these funds over to the Administrator to pay wages etc, can he lay claim to PL/TV monies ahead of any other creditor? Can the Administrator do that type of deal?

Nearly every PL club said they'd be happy for PFC to receive money early if there was a points deduction attached to it. There is... admin.... 9 points

 

If you look back over this thread yesterday evening, it was generally agreed that they are toast and that Chainrai has them with their trousers around their ankles. If Chainrai is paying the administrator he has very cold hard reasons

 

He has no interest in them at all, only getting his money back. He made a short term loan and he was conned.

 

He has a long lingering death planned for Portsmouth.

 

No ground, just a 15 year payment plan which eats up most of their CC TV income

No Parachute payments as prob a PL deal or used securing previous money

...and if you want to buy them out of admin you will still need to pay £10m of (UK) football debts, plus another £10m in Italy (possibly) and £18m to the revenue. If you don't do that you won't get your league share and they either won't let you in or you'll have a 20point penalty

 

....and this is without a possible increased penalty for a second admin and irregularities

 

The is PFC's worst nightmre. Horror for years to come

So they are advanced next years parachute payments. Half their remining squad is still on PL wages and have contracts which need to be paid up. Sol I guess is regarded as a football creditor, and other transfer payemtns are due. Rumour has it they are still payng part salaries of players sold previously, and no doubt will have to continue ot do so. HMRC will not lay down.

 

Surely this is still the beginning of the end for them?

a few points.

Storrie will have to step down aka RL did. The administrator will then be able to assess if there has been any criminal activity I assume.

 

Chanrai saying he will cover costs, does that also include the wage bill? If so and it takes a couple of months to find a buyer his 17m will look pretty sad.

Surely any future parachute and money comong from competition can be alloted to all the creditors.

If you see Loanees returning (when they can) you know that costs are only being covered to the absolute minimum.

 

I wonder if Avram has a proper contract - he could be on his way quickly

Questions:

 

1. If the SoA makes it clear that Admin cannot work (as surely it must do), can HMRC ask the court to put Administration aside and carry on with the WUO?

 

2. If Chainrai support the club to the tune of £3m per month - i.e. hands these funds over to the Administrator to pay wages etc, can he lay claim to PL/TV monies ahead of any other creditor? Can the Administrator do that type of deal?

 

And I'd add a further point:

 

3. If the SoA demonstrates that the club IS currently trading insolvently, then the club should cease trading IMMEDIATELY - never mind hanging on for admin - surely?

There you go....

 

He may be paying the administrator out of his own pocket, but the PL are covering the overheads.

 

They are in for a hideous future.

 

Freefalling through the CC without a parachute (payment)

 

I was going to do a grinny thing, but I'm actually starting to fee a bit angry and sorry for them. PFC fans.... get the AFCP club started ASAP. We need you back.... (2 divisions below us:D)

The courts can still turn down admin I believe. If they think the only person who will benefit is Chainrai and that PFC won't be bought out of admin. (Ie - UK creditirs won't wee any of their money anyway)

 

The next week is going to be interesting for non-PFC fans

 

For PFC fans - there is no good way out now
