Just seen that the administrator has said Pompey will close on August 10 if the players dont do any sort of deal.

Really sad.  :anguish: Glad things never got as bad here.

Really think they need to improve their squad depth for the coming season...

I've always hated Portsmouth - I hope they die to be honest and completely go out of business once and for all.

I know their situation is similar to ours, but if septic's or aberdeen's situation was the same as ours no one would feel any sympathy for them.

Hurry up and die pompey!

Because they've done nothing but hate and try to hurt our club.

What have Pompey done to inspire such feelings from yourself?

Pompey start their season with a cup game in 4 days time.

They really could do with a few new additions.

Relegation to league 2 must beckon for Pompey as their playing squad stands?

However, important thing is the fans have a club to support.

I don't really keep up with football other than Rangers could someone sum up how similar their situation is to ours?

If they do actually liquidate it will be interesting to see how hard they get it in comparison to us, without having half a country wanting to put the boot in.

Bit of unity between two struggling clubs, thankfully it looks like both can look forward to a future focussed on football now.

As far as I can see, they are not liquidating, expect to sign a shitload of players on Monday, have a £4m wage budget for the season (probably more than twice the League 1 average) and have shifted 8k season tickets.

Dunno about that.

I came home with a rock from the seaside though.

Good luck to them on their quest going back up the leagues (tu) Always been a team I've had a soft spot for
