Why get nervous. It's all happened before to Pompey. If he's charged (assuming he's back in Russia and they agree to extradite him) what will the FL do? They passed him through their new, strenuous FAPPT so will they admit any culpability?

 

Anyway, according to you lot Chainrai is still in charge really so what difference does this make in the scheme of things?

 

I am pretty sure that one of the updates to the FAPPT was that it could be retrospectively applied, as in if found guilty, they could remove him as owner. That in itself, is no real biggie, you could just put another front man up.

 

As for us (This board) thinking chinny is still in charge, that's twisting what has mostly been said. Chinny came out and said he was getting paid over a period of time - Installements. The natural asumption from that would be, he would have some sort of charge over the club until the installemnts are met. You and your lawyers friends, went through all the legal documentation with a fine tooth and concluded thsi was not the case. A couple of posters on a rivals forum, seem to find that wasnt the case and posted a link suggestig portpin does infact have a charge..........So if antonov's predicament prevents him making the next series of installments, then chinny might come back on the scene...... And i am sure no one on here would find that remotely funny.

That will be the 'new' test where the applicant provides the information and the FL Legal Department go OK then. Have already written back to the FL on that point. Trouble is I won't hold my breath on getting a decent response from them, they seem about as much use as a chocolate fire guard!!

Got this response today from the FL to an e-mail I sent regarding the FAPPT that was done on Antonov.

 

Thank you for your email. Please view our Owners and Directors’ Test available on our website here http://www.football-league.co.uk/regulations/20110629/appendix-4_2293633_2128219.

 

In addition please find an FAQ regarding the Owners and Directors Test which you may find useful http://www.football-league.co.uk/page/FAQ/FAQsDetail/0,,10794~2428071,00.html.

 

Based on the information provided to The Football League’s Legal Department, Vladimir Antonov complies with the Test. Should any information to the contrary be brought to our attention then the matter will be dealt with by The League, with the club concerned, in accordance with our regulations.

 

Thank you for contacting The Football League.

 

Regards,

I think may have sent a few e-mails out in reply exactly the same. Lol

He may be a misunderstood, unfairly maligned, genuine, well meaning, self-made, honest billionaire with a purely philanthropic interest in Portsmouth FC's wellbeing embedded deeply in his heart.

 

 

Is that a squadron of pigs I see flying in formation across the skies towards the golden sunset?

 

Like you, I'll conclude that his connection with the Skates was driven by none of those more noble attributes and that it is far more likely that he is just another of the "flies attracted to the pile of ****" that is Portsmouth FC, just like the child-maiming gun runner, the penniless Middle East ice cream seller, the fake sheik and the Hong Kong loan shark. When the Russian Mafia are gone, who else will it be? They're almost running out of Pantomime villains.

I also understand that Saif Gadaffi has ruled himself out from a second approach !;)

Heaven forbid that we should find amusement in such misfortune. Hard to feel sympathy for an unscrupulous loan shark, but there it is; just when he thought he'd got the pile of ordure off his hands, back it comes like a boomerang of shíte. As Oscar Wilde observed on the death of Little Nell in The Old Curiosity Shop (there's even a Pompey link there), you'd have to have a heart of stone not to laugh.

I am still waiting for you to comment on the Portpin debenture - something which you seem to have conveniently ignored having asked us "girls" to prove it. You have the internet equivalent of selective hearing Ho.

Perusing the skate forums, I've noticed some pretty reprehensible attitudes coming to the surface. They couldn't care less about what their owner gets up to or how he funds the club, as long as plucky little pompey is ok.

 

Some prize quotes from: http://fansonline.net/portsmouth/mb/view.php?id=388408

 

"Really couldnt give a f* about his other business as long as he runs the club properly."

 

"they are all at it"

 

"And Antonov comes out of that sounding a pretty shrewd,if very dodgy, operator. I've yet to see anything in these stories that makes me think he is about to become penniless."

 

It'd be laughable if it wasn't so shamelessly absent of any morality. Of course, they'll be the first to bleat to the Football League about the failings of the FAPPT should any of this latest turn of events cause the club any real bother.

 

We already knew it, of course, but now we get quotes directly from their fishy mouths.

 

What a horrible little club.

Knowing and working with some of the "partners" identified on that page, I am pretty confident that they would not approve their brand being associated with this bunch of chancers.

 

Am I petty and spiteful enough to tip them off? Yes, I think I might be.

I did wonder what Job Centre Plus would make of such an association - it's a government department after all!

You know, your post seemed to be quite eloquent and well thought out and then you posted the above, which was a real ROTFPMSL moment.

 

Maybe you could tell that to Jimmy Hoffa - if you can find him :lol:

 

OMG.

 

Is that all you lot cling to these days?

 

The Jimmy Hoffa case?

 

This is the proof that my analysis is wrong and all is well at Fratton Park?

 

Hell, things are even worse down there than I thought.

Acording to solent this morning Antonov has had a second bank taken from his control.

So that is one in latvia and on in lithuania.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/latvia-suspends-banks-operations-after-discovering-large-asset-shortfall/2011/11/22/gIQAbOTHkN_story.html

 

Of course he could have siphoned off £300m solely to fund Poopey's return to the Prem, safe in the knowledge that, whatever he may have done to the people of Latvia and Lithuania's life savings, the FL and their FAPPT will wave him through on the nod.

Oh surprise surprise....

 

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-11-21/snoras-assets-may-be-revised-lower-on-low-provisions-fitch-says.html

 

Fitch Ratings said estimates of assets at Bankas Snoras AB (SRS1L), which the government took over last week, may be lowered becauseLithuania’s fifth-largest bank didn’t set aside adequate reserves to cover bad loans.

Corporate loans, mainly for real-estate projects, are the “most problematic,” with some related to the bank’s shareholders, Vladimir Markelov, a Moscow-based analyst at Fitch, said today in a phone interview.

“The asset quality was extremely poor,” Markelov said. “The loan book was under-provisioned,” with bad, overdue and non-performing loans accounting for 135 percent of the bank’s total equity in May.

I think my favorite line from that article is;

 

The shortfall in Snoras’s assets may be more than the initial 300 million-euro ($405 million) estimate, central bank governor Vitas Vasiliauskas said today.

“We thought it was flu, but now it’s looking like cancer,” he said

Forgive me but how can bad loans account for 135% of the equity? Shurly they cant exceed 100%.

This is not football only footballers can give 110% and dig into reserves they didnt know they had.

Perhaps somebody that uses Twitter should ask Daniel Geey what he thinks about the 2 Banks ? http://twitter.com/#!/footballlaw

 

He is a leading lawyer and advise entities in the football industry on regulatory and broadcasting matters.

He writes various articles on Football and the Law because (quote) "keen interest in sports law and have experience in advising on Premier League, Football League and UEFA rule compliance and Premier League broadcasting issues".

 

Why I mention his name is because because he is an associate at Field Fisher Waterhouse and "gives guidance on the Fit and Proper Person Test" http://www.ffw.com/people/search-all/g/daniel-geey.aspx

Daniel also advises clients in the football industry. Such guidance has included advice on the Fit and Proper Person Test, parachute payments and the football creditors rule, disclosure obligations under the relevant football authority's rules, conflicts of interest and third party player ownership contracts

 

He was also part of the team at FFW who advised CSI on the purchase of a certain team

It's entirely co-incidental that a figure of 400million keeps appearing (depending on the currency)
