Now that Portsmouth FC has survived, thanks to its supporters, should not someone be punished for mis-managing the club and running up colossal debts? Why has not the HMRC taken action? What happened to the fraud investigation? If all the people who profited contributed to the PST funds, the fans could show them some respect. The deduction of points does not affect the profiteers, PUP.
As for Harry Redknapp, easy to blame him and anyone who is in the limelight. People are too ignorant, you see a bargain and you go to the boss and ask him.. can I have.. he says yes. Why would you stop and go.. er boss, can we afford it? are you paying all the bills on time boss?
18k at Pompey's last home game. Not bad for a league one club that got relegated. There has only ever been 10k or so hardcore Pompey fans. You'd know that if you looked further back than the Prem years. We don't need to justify ourselves... every relegated club loses a large % of fans when they go down. PUP.
For Portsmouth you need to go back a little further and ask a certain Owner and Manager (HR) to repay some of the money they took out of the club - if they both donated 15% of the money they 'earned' whilst running the club you would have no financial problems whatsoever - the chances of that happening I would say is less than zero!!
can someone explain please where all theso called best supporters in the country from portsmouth fc have been hiding the last cpl of seasons when there club needed them most,seemed to have vanished.
#51 Exactly where is the relevance in this comment. Team not doing well so I will go and support another one.A fickle supporter if ever I came across one!...........Just because i have a brain and realize i am more likely to have joy by supporting united than pompey, i have probably seen more matches at fratton park than you ever will, but at the end of the day man u win more trophies
150 mil? Where you get that figure?Don't be fooled into thinking your club paid its debts mate. A German businessman did that for you. What will you do when they call their loan in? They are businessmen not charity workers after all.
#67.Fair comment, but your frustration is shared with our city. our supporters too.It isn't fair, its not the club, the fans and the staff that should be punished. Retribution and justice needs to be handed to the men that ran the club down, Chanrai, Al Faraj, Al Fahim, Convers Sports Initiatives owned by Russian Vladimir Antonov and Gaydamark.These are the people that didn't pay the bills
Manager on the cheap. Shame the FL didn't have the backbone to wield a meaningful punishment for a club that managed to cheat HMRC, local businesses, charities and schools out of circa £150m.
I am proud for Portsmouth and their fans after the Portsmouth Trust completed their takeover. It has given myself a glimmer if hope that we Blackburn fans can achieve the same. Portsmouth may have been relegated to League 2 but the future is a bright one, and I am sure they will be back to where they belong eventually. Best of wishes, Pompey!
Bournemouth supporter, and grew up on the south coast albeit now in Australia...and really pleased for Portsmouth and their fans, and good news for regional football too. Play up Pompey.
Looks like a step in the right direction for Portsmouth. Having been through this (albeit not quite to the same extent) with Southampton I can empathise! I wish them a speedy recovery as there is nothing quite like a south coast derby day, which are now few and far between.
Al Hasawis have only just arrived, we were paying long term debts back for 10 years previous to that, all the money that David Pratt wasted.
You had some Arabs pay them for you you mean. Good luck to the pompey fans I say. They took their club back.
