Pompey Offer Ten Players New Deals

 

Preparations for Pompey’s 2010/11 season are already underway, as the football club looks to build a strong squad capable of challenging for the Championship title.

 

The football club can confirm it has offered new contracts to influential first-team FA Cup heroes David James, Kanu, Hermann Hreidarsson and Ricardo Rocha.

 

It’s hoped the popular quartet will bring a wealth of experience and strength to the Blues’ side as they seek to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

 

A number of Pompey’s rising stars have also been approached with new deals to keep them at Fratton Park.

 

Lennard Sowah, Matt Ritchie and Joel Ward have all been offered contracts, following their impressive breakthroughs at the end of the season.

 

They are joined by fellow youngsters Marlon Pack and Tom Kilbey, along with reserve keeper Jon Stewart.

 

Fratton favourite Linvoy Primus has also been offered a position at the club, following his retirement from football.

 

And Pompey’s coaching staff have identified a number of players in different positions that they would like to bring into the squad, with work ongoing in this area.

 

Loan stars Jamie O’Hara (Tottenham), Hassan Yebda (Benfica), Aruna Dindane (Lens) and Frederic Piquionne (Lyon) all rejoin their parent clubs.

 

Anthony Vanden Borre will also return to Serie A side Genoa, but Pompey are working on a new loan deal that will hopefully allow the defender to be come back to Fratton Park for a further season.

 

Angelos Basinas, Jamie Ashdown, Steve Finnan and OJ Koroma have all been released.

 

Portsmouth FC would like to thank the departing players for their tremendous service to the club during their time on the south coast.

 

How is this possible, have I missed the point where they are now a solvent business, HELLO F.A. are you watching, hey unsecured creditors, are you happy with money being spent on signing on fees, whilst being shafted by a 5p a year deal. This stinks if true, I'm so angry I could burst.

 

Also, I asked this before, and never got a satisfactory answer, and I feel it's important. Someone posted that if one person is paid off in full, then all must be paid in full. Now if Portpin are the company, who now effectively owns Poopey and it's sh1thole stadium, are paying off in full, all unsecured creditors under £2,500. Then surely there is a case for those, with debts owing to them, above this threshold, to demand payment in full.

 

It is not Chainrai paying out of his own pocket as some would believe, but the above company, which he owns.

 

Confused:confused: I am!

Utterly disgusting.

 

At which point does this become criminal? It cannot be far away, surely!

 

And if they think Anthony Vanden Borre will play in the championship, they really are insane.

There is a big difference between offering a contract and having it accepted.

 

IMO this is just more spin from the Android.

 

Sure, they've offered the contracts, but anyone know what's in them? It could be a contract to pay them £250 per week for all anyone knows.

 

I'd suggest everyone just chillout, relax and see how many of those contracts get accepted - none would be my guess, but at least Android can then turn round and say they were shafted by the players after offering them a new contract ;)

be interesting to know how chester city fans feel about poopey offering contracts to England internationals.

 

THey have to rebuild from nothing in non league tier 5 I think.

 

Good luck to them (anyone remember the 2nd replay in the league cup i the early 70's ??).

 

And city went out of business for how much?

700K including less than £30k to the taxman.

Problem is Chester City weren't in the FL, they were in the Conference.

I think the FL WILL deduct them points as they tend to make up rules as they go along for differing situations. Add to that the trials of 'arry, Storrie and Mandaric and your looking at potentially points deduction.

 

If they somehow avoid the points deduction then a combination of AA playing a blinder and the PL bailing them out, means they'll get off with merely relegation from the PL

 

The only other aspect is whether AA is in the pocket of Chainrai, whose long term intention is to liquidate the club to have flats built on FP - if the conspiracy theorists are to be believed

 

Anyone know when the Football League would need to make this decision by? Any precedents and when did they hear of the deduction? Could it go until the first weekend of the season? Sorry for all the questions.

I think officially they stay as members of the PL until something like 3rd June. That's when they become members of the FL (hopefully in their case).

Just reading the bit about Hreidarsson being offered a new deal. Firstly I thought he had triggered a one year extension anyway before he got injured, and secondly, if not, you would be insame to offer any deal to a 36 year old who is likely to miss half the season at best.

Also the mongs keep going on about players they can get for 10k/week after Andy Android suggested that figure as reasonable wage. On 12-15000 gates, no parachute money etc, how the hell can they pay that sort of wage? IIRC we had about half a dozen players on that or just over and that nearly ruined us.

I still cannot decide if he is

a, delusional

b, staggeringly complacent

c, playing up to what the mongs want hear

d, downright deceitful and playing whatever game it is that Chainrai is playing

e, he knows there is a cunning plan that means they will get away with it, so his lack of concern is genuine

Answers on a postcard please

or what

 

d for me

I expect AA has told the FL that if they give them minus points they will not be a viable compny to buy and so he will liquidate them and that would make them look bad.

We picked a administrator who played by the book. We should have gone for one who had never read a book on business practice and administration

I don't think the FL would be that bothered TBH They've got plenty of ammunition they could throw at Pompey. Whether AA realises that is another matter. Or it could be Chainrai's long term scheme. Who knows?

I'll go for a mixture of © and (d), though I also think there's more than a small chance that he believes that (e) will be the case.

 

It seems from the earlier part of your post that a fair-sized coterie of their fans haven't twigged that having a £10k per week wage cap, as suggested, doesn't equate to paying lots of players £10k a week. But then such thinking would be a little advanced for them I suppose.

Anyone know how the open top bus defeat parade went on sunday?

 

As has been pointed out, it was cancelled. But phoning Portsmouth supporting friends from my village this evening just to keep in touch (no, I didn't gloat..) I was told it was because there was a big fight between Pimply fans at the big screen on the common during the final!

There are an awful lot of thick people in the World with money. They just haven't found another one yet

 

But isn't the Ice Cream Doctor one of the creditors, with a claim of £5 million? If he gets 20% of that fictitious* amount maybe he isn't as stupid as he looks.

Some of the comments by the head up ar*e P*mpey fans are hilarious :D

This one's my favourite :D:

 

Got a feeling it is no longer "Pompey till i die" but rather "Pompey till it dies".

 

:smt042:smt042:smt042

 

There is a big difference between offering a contract and having it accepted.

 

:D There's also a big difference between offering a contract and honouring it if it's accepted. They could offer £20K per week, but after a month or two not pay up.....

 

.... again. :smt042

 

I wonder if the players remember their late payments from their previous contracts? :D

 

As the great philosopher G. W. Bush said "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — [pauses] - shame on you. Fool me — You can't get fooled again."

Exactly!

 

Not sure why everyone's getting so uptight.

 

AA is just doing his usual trick of putting ******** in the public domain.

 

James will join a Prem team. Rocha will bog off.

 

Kanu and Hreidarrson may stay if no one else wants them (possible IMO). The alternative is to retire. Those two are not going to get you out of the division though. If you look a bit further down the press release you have a better idea of the players who will be featuring.

he might stay. He has earned his dough and seems settled.

 

I suppose he might but he always struck me as someone who is pretty ambitious. He is well fit and could easily play for another five years. If ****flaps offers him a free I can't see him turning down Champs League footy.

....Rob Lloyd, the property developer who represents an unknown potential buyer of Portsmouth, said he did not expect his client to make an offer for the club until a Company Voluntary Arrangement had been agreed with creditors.

Lloyd refused to respond to comments from Portsmouth's administrator, Andrew Andronikou, who questioned the authenticity of his interest.

Lloyd says his client is still interested in buying the club. "We're still cracking on," he said, "but I don't think anything will happen until the CVA."...

I refuse to believe that HRMC will sign a CVA for 20p in the pound.

 

It gives the green light to every club in the country to blow off their tax bill.

 

If I ran a football club that had arrears of tax - or was thinking of running some up to fund a promotion campaign - I would be watching the way HMRC deal with Pompey very closely. If they get away with it, by which I mean the team gets to carry on without further penalty, then blowing the Revenue off becomes a very attractive strategy.

As I understand it the FL will impose penalties if a CVA has not been agreed. At what date does the CVA have to be in place? Pompey become a FL club on the 4th June and everything AA is saying the CVA will be agreed (or not) mid june.

But isn't HMRC planning on going for the directors of PCFC (past and present) once it gets liquidated, as per the proposed CVA? If they can sting Storrie and others for a considerable sum, then that should stand as a pretty powerful deterrent to others.

 

I doubt anyway that directors would plan to fall behind on their tax payments; it's more likely to happen as a result of a failed gamble or, in Pompey's case, reckless spending in the assumption that there'd always be somebody there to pick up the tab. Latterly, of course, they carried on spending even though they knew full well that there was no such person there, which takes their wrongdoing to a whole new level. Which is just what Storrie promised to do, come to think of it.

How the hell can they offer players new contracts??????????

 

Probably to increase their value.

 

If you've got a player with 1 year left on his contract he's goign to cost less than a player with 3 years left.

 

That's all it is, he's hoping that some of the promising youngsters fall for it...

 

And theres a world of difference between a contract being offered and one being signed.

Interesting - I am not sure of teh legalities, so someone with a knowledge of TAX law should correct, but I guess that by liquidating the comapny, the revenue will be able to go after the ex owners and directors.... especially those who have received their 20p for monies owed... I wonder what Chanrai is thinking as he may well get 100% as a preferred creditor, buyt could he lose it all to HMRC? Afterall he is was an owner who failed in tehir duty to ensure all Taxes were paid??

That being the case I would expect him to return to his normal domicile overseas before it gets to that stage.

 

He is not a resident of the UK and I would think HMRC would have great difficulty in collecting anything from him.

 

Same for Slasher, Bin Trump and Al-Mirage too !

 

Only perhaps Storrie-Boy can be caught in this way.

 

All IMHO of course...

Surely HMRC have no chance of prosecuting Chanrai, Gaydamak, al Fahim, etc as they are not UK residents and they, and their accounts, will be overseas. Can you sequester funds from an overseas bank account? How would you ever get them to court? Will Mandric suddenly disappear back to the US before his case comes up? I can't see HMRC getting a penny from the past owners/directors other than Storrie, and from Redknapp for tax evasion. They certainly won't get much from the club even though there must still be money there to hire a new CEO, keep paying Storrie as a consultant, meet current salaries and operating costs, offer new contracts to players, and offer all the current debtors the princely sum of 5p in the pound for five years.

Under the new CVA it states that they liquidate in 9 months and immediately reform under a new name. Can the FL then give them a 10 point penalty at the liquidation stage i.e. a second points penalty for their shenanigans, oh and then a further-2 for doing it ten years ago ?

My guess would be that HMRC will block a CVA which will send PFC into liquidation, thus still allowing them to go after ex directors/owners.

This is the primary reason the FL need to punish them, regardless of whether there was anyone there to save/invest in them.

 

So far a £1m find as punishment doesn't equate to the benefit they're had over other teams.

Just read that the Skates are holding up the signing of Grant as West Ham manager by their insistence that they also take on £40000 a week Tal Ben Haim too. The article states that the Skates were kindly waiving the compensation fee for Grant (which was probably not payable anyway, as they had breached his contract by not paying him) and that West Ham were confident that things could be sorted and that James would probably follow Grant there. So what would be the situation with them having two top class goalies? Who would warm the bench between Green and James?

I would take everything that Comical Ali says with a pinch of salt, remember he said he would get the 9 points removed, get their Transfer Embargo lifted, get them into Europe etc.

 

Whenever he says anything I have visions of him standing on a roof top with American tanks in the background, one tank has "No CVA" written on the side and another has "FA Charges".

 

To answer your question, this article from the Daily Hate says that Darlington only got the Golden Share in the final week before the season started last year to escaped further points penalty.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1204953/Colin-Todds-Darlington-avoid-points-deduction-coming-administration.html?ITO=1490

So I would assume end of June, then the 28 day "Cooling off" period for legal challenges in order to get the golden share in early August.

 

(Articles about Darlington's CVA if you want to read - http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/sport/football/darlington/4421431.Creditors_to_get_pittance_from_club/

http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/sport/football/darlington/crisis/4440821.quakers__cva_meeting_postponed/

- very little owed in Tax and meeting was end of June)

 

HOWEVER, don't worry, ask yourself are the HMRC going to allow the SAME GROUP of Israel Businessmen (some people call them crooks) to remain in power (Storrieteller at Wembley on Sat, Azougy + Jacob for the S/F etc).

 

HMRC are playing the long game and the FA already have somebody in "looking at the books".

Android was on Solent this morning - explaining the reasons for why he put Chinarai alongside Prince William in the Royal Box on Saturday....

 

Plus if it was Chinarai's son as mascot....

 

'Preferential treatment for an owner who's not the owner but may just yet be the new owner who doesn't really want it but will take it as long as he's the owner with much lower debt to begin with handy that he appointed an administrator and paid for him wasn't it?'

 

I couldn't shorten that so that the cesspit of PCFC could be described any better.

 

We're on 525 pages and the FA can't be arsed.

Hi

 

yup agree from a personal earnings perspective... but i am talking about monies taken direct form the club which is a UK registered business which has defaulted on its tax liabilities - in effect the monies owed to Chanrai (15 mil?) are coming from the coffers of the club (parachute payments) so would Chanrai still have protection against HMRC going after that? I admit I dont know enough about t, but if Storrieteller is the only director they could go after if the the club is liquidated and asetts transfered to a new club, he is hardly worth it for the HMRC in terms of bankrupting him for the sake of a few mil they might be able to squeeze out... how much is he worth?

 

So they must have something else up his sleeve?

Daily Express say that there is ahitch with Grants move to the Hammers, as the Skates are insisting that he takes Ben Haim wit him ( £40,000 grand a week wages). Also says that Grant isa confident that he can take James with him, though strangely for the Express there is no mention of Lady Di.
