|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
what are the rules concerning points won or lost against them in matches already played ?[/quote]
The rule seems to be that any very wealthy fudge packing snot dribbling cum drenched centre halves can take them to the cleaners to further compound the misery bought on by over spending zealots of ex managers and owners who's main life task is to line their own pockets and fiddle punters and tax man alike !! other than that I don't know.
Expunged... hmm yes PP it is very satisfying!!

I don't think they'll go during this season. I can definitely see them not being about come the start of next.
Feb 10 is the hearing - result of which will be mid-Feb. They'll probably appeal in March, drag it out till April and go bang in May/June.
TBH "the football authorities" would probably prefer that scenario as it is easier to deal with, whether various creditors would go for it is a different matter. Once they realise that the company is likely to fail they will all be leaping in and Pompey will struggle to keep going as everyone will want paying in advance from St. Johns ambulance and the firm that supplies their pies to the electricity suppliers.
I don't think it's necessarily the courts that will do them , I just think they will run out of cash .
Safest bet of the month is their players won't get paid at the end of the month .
But you could be right .
If they do go belly up, i bet you the first thing you will hear is a certain Kevin McC**t stating that the vacant position in the league is theres by right!!
Sure I heard somewhere that if they were actually going bust before the end of the season the football league would loan them the minimum amount required to stagger on til the end of the season. Would be far too much aggro and Tevezgate style recriminations otherwise.
If I were running Portsmouth right now, I'd just transfer list the entire squad and sell anyone. At the end of the day they could pay their debts, field some kids, maybe take a couple of relegations and end up in League 1 or 2. The alternative is ceasing to exist. Not a great decision, but I know which I'd prefer.
Should Portsmouth cease to exist (which I feel unlikely) there could be 'filtering down' ....
PL relegate 2, Championship promote 3 = PL back to 20 teams
Championship relegate 2, L1 promote 3 = Championship back to 24 teams

Just to give chapter and verse on the answer to the question that began this thread, the Premier League rules can be found at http://www.premierleague.com/staticFiles/bd/3b/0,,12306~146365,00.pdf Rule 29 states
Every cloud has a silver lining and all that, may mean my sunday league team only have to finish 3rd to be promoted then?
For our sake it wouldn't bode too well if Pompey went out of business before the end of the season. If you wipe their results from the record we'd take a bit of a hit compared to our rivals down at the bottom. ****ing through Pompey's results, they've beaten Burnley, Wigan and Wolves and drawn with Hull, although they have lost to Bolton and Blackburn.
and he wonders why he's disliked throughout football

How to endear himself even more with football fans generally.
IMO This will be pompey's problem, more and more people whom they owe money to will either ask for money back or refuse to do more business with them. This is probably to do with getting himself on the creditors list if they do go into admin?
I wonder what will happen to the Twat in the Hat & his cowbell. Will he be expunged as well?
by the looks of him he could use an exsponge-bath
We wont lose any points over this.I deal with winding up orders every day they will drag this out until the summer then refinance.
They have just been told after an appeal to the premier league that the transfer embargo will not be lifted.Apparantely it relates to fees owed to Udinese for Sully Muntari
