Pompey Takeover Saga

Recommended Posts

I don't buy that, the Chanrai sueing Gaydamak thing happened before Chanrai got involved in PFC.

 

Why would Chanrai get involved with or put himself in a situation where he can be shafted by Gaydamak again? It doesn't make sense.

 

Gaydamak and Chanrai are working together IMO.

 

I suspect BC thought he could take the Gaydamaks club as well, on the cheap, and make a load of cash.

 

Alternatively, and maybe more plausible, they could well be working together as part of the deal whereby Gaydamak has to find the cash to pay off BC. So, Gaydamak drives the club into admin, gets some cash out of the club, hands his land over to BC who, with the ground in tow, develops and flogs to the highest bidder. Sure there's a covenant on the ground for sporting use....but if there's no football club.....?

 

Either way, the same end result. Pompey...toast.

 

The question here has always been, why would BC have ever got involved with Pompey in the first place? Either he got mugged off by Storrie's flannel, he thought he could make bucket loads of cash for limited outlay or there's always been an end game like this.

However much i would love to see them liquidated and disappear,nothing more than they deserve,i cannot see it happening.

More brinkmanship from AA and Sasha will bow down in the end.Lies and spin from day one all along.

So near..yet so far.

Atleast it goes some way to them admitting they are insolvent and have been for an age.

 

I had to tun SSN off for the drivel about poor old pompey makes me sick about club legends who! But it is more spin abou the game at Hull will go ahead what bollok!

All will turn out ok for the cheating ....! God I hate them please just die, but know that the media can't wait for them to survive

The most surprising thing of all of today's developments is that we haven't had a "They will get away with it" from Nick ;)

 

Unfortunately though - the truth is that they probably will. I think that it is unlikely that they will go bust, a deal will be struck at the 11th hour and they will continue on thier merry way. Personally I think the lastest statement has been released purely to force the Gay guys hand, and by so doing they will finally shake off administration.

 

All of that said though - it would appear that they are treading a very thin line, one day shouting from the rooftops that they are nearly out of administration (and thus trading normally), to the next where they claim to not have the means the get through to next week.

 

They will get out of this, and survive - but there is more to come yet.

How does this latest news fit in with the "getting away with it" vibe ??

 

No change. They are bleating again, blaming Gaydamak for all of thier current woes - a deal will be done and they will be allowed to continue. Hence Nick and his 'they have got away with it' remains valid input.

after they survived the last two court dates that were nailed-on-defeats I'm thinking they have 'special' friends in influential places and can avoid any charges sticking, including the tax evasion ones, so I'm not cracking open a can of Tizer and salt/n/vinegar Pringles just yet.

 

On the up side - AA went toe-to-toe with the Prem and made them look stupid, he did the same with the taxman, so you have to admire his cheek

BUT

if ever Chanrai's little slap-headed slippery puppet was going to come unstuck it was the day he decided to play big stakes poker with an arms dealer.

Any man who earns a living by crippling children and funding civil war isn't going to be intimidated by a jumped-up beancounter waving bits of paper in his blood-splattered face.

 

Rather than the child-maimer backing down to protect his public image (!!) I see this latest development as the very predictable start of the blame game (see 300 pages back) to cover the worst scenario.

 

If it comes to a post-apocalypse inquest, uninformed pundits will ask, who pushed poor little plucky Pompey over the edge?

 

Was it the men at the helm who santioned theft from charities and took on a ridiculous wagebill in a bizarre attempt at gambling EVERYTHING only to whine like girls when it failed? - or was it one of the creditors they owed money to?

The PR battle to distance AA's appalling business skills from the debacle he continues to oversee has started tonight, and the fact that he's even making press statements hint that things are pretty dismal and he is no longer confident of turning the stricken tanker around.

 

That said, I think we are playing Call My Bluff and Frank Muir thinks that AA is still spouting sh/te and looking for sympathy so I don't see them going pop, however I do hope it has highlighted what an appallingly-run London-based club they have become.

 

Any stupid creditors want to stand up and explain why they voted for them to continue trading insolvently?

Anyone from the FL want to explain how they are NOT bringing the game into disrepute?

 

 

 

No, thought not.

I've had a really nice day out today - I went sailing.

 

We took a few beers and there were lots of cute chicks in Bikinis and the sun shone

 

We stopped off in the Palm Island for a swim.

 

It was nice and cool and relaxing.

 

Found a whole load of dead fish floating in the sea.

 

I think it is a sign.

 

So, floating about on a sailing boat in the Middle of the Gulf and posting at 5:38 is followed by Twitter at 18:11 saying there are dead fish floating around in East Hampshire

 

Spooky, to have so much influence while out of range of Wi-fi & Mobile Coverage eh chaps

 

:p

I was in a pub tonight when the news broke. the punters couldnt understand why I was so chuffed. until I explained they it was like celtic wanting the gers to go out of business and vice versa. they hadnt realised how saints and skate fans hate each other.

on a less related aspect do any of you have employers who care so much for you they tell you who you can not have a drink with . 8 weeks ago I went out with a group of work colleagues in another department and have advised it was not a good thing to do and I shouldnt go out with fellow workers. yes Im ****ed off tonight the one thing keeping me sane is the news of the skates going out of business

After supporting Saints for 40 odd years and having had my first experience of Krap Notarf way back in '76 when Micky Channon scored in the 89 min my early feelings were nothing but hatred for the blue few but having worked along side many Skates over the years I enjoyed the mutual banter that I've given and taken and have even developed friendships with some but after the sh*t me and my mates have had to endure on sites over the last 5 years and with them wanting us to fold when we were in the same position a couple of years ago I'm in the 'Fack 'em and good riddance' camp. My only regret is that they will still harp on about the two 4-1's and we'll not get the chance to avenge these results but I guess I can live with that and and there's always Eastleigh to avenge and embarrass them.

 

Can quite understand your pain. Some old codger I know gave me some saints gear that he got hold of, I where one of the jackets to work and it just invites the dirty skates to let out the little old jibes here and there. I do quite enjoy it though. Talking of that old codger... must catch up with him, the miserable old git gave up on his homeland and thought the grass was greener in mainland europe. Got the grumpy git a ticket for wembley aswell and didn't even wanna stay with us through the whole match.

 

Nudge, Nudge... ;) ;)

Sorry Duncan, that was a cheap attempt at a joke and made in a moment of excitement.

 

Not intended against you, more an observation at how things do change.

 

Hey no offence A, not from you anyway.

This is still a bit of fun --no?

Cheered me up no end - I am sorry but I won't cry if they fold.

PO owner PompeyScot's opinion:

 

"Just got off the phone.

 

OK, the situation isn't as bad as is being made out, and there are games being played here once again. Be aware that, with the situation as it is, I can't say a massive amount about what seems to have caused this but, suffice to say, the situation as put out by the club has some almighty caveats to it which aren't included. Gaydamak hasn't 'moved the goalposts' for no reason and, if what I have been informed is true, I don't blame him in the slightest.

 

As for the statement, I understand it was released by David Lampitt, without the understanding of Andronikou (anybody watching Andronikou trying to wing this can see he had no idea about this statement). Again, if that is right, I'd question why the technical owner of the club has been bypassed here. Plus, the timing of the statement wasn't coincidental, Gaydamak's religion and, thus, his limit on reply is a factor here.

 

I'm fecking angry at people constantly trying to play games with this club and us fans, it's about time it stopped."

 

AND..

 

"I see Gazz has mentioned this in another post so, sod it.

 

Fact is that, this afternoon, Chainrai was on the verge of becoming owner. However, they said to Gaydamak that they would challenge his right to be a secure creditor. Gaydamak said he'd see them in court then and, as a result, wanted his owed money back there and then (hence the amount up front which the club mention in their statement). Of course, Chainrai doesn't have the money to give him.

 

So, there you go. Statement was released once Gaydamak was 'offline' so to speak."
