Pompey In Administration. There By The Grace Of God...
So Pompey are in administration owing a paltry £70m. That pales into insignificance when compared to our much more dramatic £110m! I know Sullivan and Gold are not our idea of the perfect knights on white chargers but you have to wonder how close we were to the brink when they stepped in. Duxbury and Bernhardt kept claiming that the situation wasn't critical, but the owners of Northern Rock were saying something similar on the evening before the Bank of England pulled the rug from under them.
The hope is that the Pompey players will now play out their remaining games desperate to prove that they have a future in the Premiership. All the pressure has evaporated, they are going down now regardless, so the players can go out and express themselves, rewarding the wonderful Pompey fans for their continued support, whilst putting themselves in the shop window ready for next season.
I fancy Pompey to have a storming end to the season now, which will suit us down to the ground. We don't have a game this weekend so I will be cheering on Pompey against Burnley. My money is on a 2-0 win for Administration FC!
