Off the point but reading that letter, "...kept finding more debts to the point he magically produced the 75% he needed to stop HMRC liquidating the club", why couldn't we have found a debt, or taken out a new debt before we went into administration so that HMRC weren't as big a creditor?

Obviously a shame for Pompey, there fans have had just as bad a time as us.

Considering our debt to HMRC was mooted at around 100 million...

Kanu is a cunt!

Makes me look at what our players did first time around with a little more appreciation.

if it's true he's owed 3 million then he is anything but a cunt billy, if that 3 mill had been paid to him the club would have been fucked long ago

It's a shame what's happened to the club with the mismanagement of previous owners. Feel for the fans.
Hopefully they can get a newco up and running and get Portsmouth back up the leagues where they belong!!

Ben Haim sitting on 36,000 a week in League One and refusing to budge. :anguish:

I wonder if Southampton fans are taking as much delight from this situation as the tarriers are from ours?

Gutted for them, have been passed around like a helpless whore for the last few years. Financing Redknapp all those years ago would have cost them so much and they have never recovered.

Wouldnt of batted an eye lid to be honest but knowing what their supporters are going thru im gutted for them. If they do go bust tho does that mean that their could potentially be a spot in england up for grabs? Surely the leauge one chairmen would look at how much  at how much money the spl have lost and they could have a money spinner?

Surely that would've been a case of digging a deeper hole for ourselves? Would've just put us in a worse position, and delayed the inevitable IMO.

Regarding Pompey though, its incredible the situation they find themselves in. To successfully get themselves out of administration, basically with a clean slate and the find themselves in this position again just 2 years later shows serious mismanagement. You would think one administration would be the boot up the arse to make sure your running your business right in the future.

Certainly hope that's the case for us. After everything we've went through, you hope that the people behind the scenes never allow our club to be run as recklessly again.

A great bunch of fans. Went to Fratton Park a couple of times, shite games and a shite stadium, but the fans were simply fantastic, and absolutely gutted for them. Went down in my Rangers scarf and was very much welcomed. I sincerely hope they don't go to the wall, their fans deserve so much better (tu)

A mysterious Nigerian billionaire e-mailed Kanu offering to pay him the money he's owed. All he has to do is send all of his bank account details.

I really do feel for them, knowing how it felt going through what we have, still though, I find it amazing how they still ended up in this position, with the money they've made from selling on players!

Well, we'd have been playing with fire trying to build up debt like that.
