It looks as if Ben-Haim and Lawerence have gone now, but if they do manage to get to saturday, how will they play? they don't have any players.

Freebies, trialists and kids.

Good luck to them.

Leeds United Supporters' Trust confirms collapse of takeover bid (BBC)

Leeds United Supporters' Trust (LUST) has confirmed that a proposed deal to buy the club has collapsed after more than two months of negotiations.
Talks between the consortium, believed to comprise of Middle East-based investors and owner and chairman Ken Bates, have broken down.
A club statement said they welcomed new interest after the period of exclusivity for the consortium ended.

Bit of a giggle here when read out of context - ref Sky Sports

Portsmouth's hopes of avoiding liquidation on Friday have been given a huge shot in the arm after Tal Ben Haim agreed to leave the club.

Sounds like the Gold/Sullivan business model. ;)

Pompey have one of our ex players on trial, Jon Harley.

They have a few good players for that league, Brian Howard from Reading, Izale McCleod who is quite prolific in the lower leagues and I expect they will rely on a few loan players too.

I'm sure we could loan them a couple too if needed.

I may pop to a few games next season when we are playing on a Sunday.

I believe MK Dons were trying to sign him and they're fancied as one of the promotion favourites in that league.

Can't imagine there will be a shortage of clubs after Liam Lawrence, Kanu on the other hand, how long was his original contract or who kept renewing.

There were even rumours of Peter Storrie coming back to buy the club.

I agree PP, there's something very fishy down here and I'm not talking about the smell from the docks!

The Russians and Redknapp have destroyed Pompey.

But what amazes me most is the fact that some of their fans still say it was worth it to win the FA cup and play in the Europa league. Yes even despite the fact that they have nearly ceased to exist!!

So - barring a bona fide miracle - that's that, isn't it?

Coincidentally I was in the Vic last night with an eminent QC. The SFO are not only a discredited bunch, but they've run out of money. Almost all prosecutions are on hold, briefs avoid their cases like the plague and they are concentrating on things like regulatory matters and civil recovery. Nice way to run a fraud department in these days of high end fraud eh?

As I have mentioned on here before, Harry's bill came to a cool 2m, Storrie's around 750k, the prosecution and court costs are estimated at 13m and God knows what Mandaric's lawyers billed. The taxpayer will have to pay all of this as costs were awarded and the total will be somewhere between 16-20m which, ironically, could probably save Pompey right now.

You couldn't make it up.

ps - he'll be back here by Xmas....

Seems the only thing that can save them frpm liquidation now is the Pompey Supporters Trust http://www.communitypompey.co.uk/about.php Good luck to them. Would be good to see them run by the real fans instead of overseas investors. Heard they've raised over £4million so far and have the backing of the council too.

I just learned that in their League Cup game against Plymouth they played the majority of the game with an 18 year old being the oldest player on the pitch. Surely some sort of record.

I also wish the Supporters' Trust success.
