April 28, 2012 more on this topic here

Michael Appleton has confirmed Jason Pearce and Greg Halford were left out of Portsmouth's defeat by Nottingham Forest as the duo are set to join other clubs.

Pompey bowed out of the Championship with a 2-0 reverse at the City Ground and Appleton is now preparing for a major overhaul of his squad in the summer.

Financially-stricken Pompey need to sell players to raise funds and defender Pearce is widely expected to join Leeds United.

Utility man Halford is also attracting interest from several clubs, while Ipswich Town have revived their bid to sign youngster Joel Ward.

A number of other players are set to head out of Fratton Park and Appleton is expecting a busy period ahead of next season's campaign in League One.

"It could be as big as 17 or 18 players leaving the football club and the same number coming in. It's going to be a tough, tough, summer with a lot of hard work.

"There are agreements in place with various clubs over Greg and Jason that they wouldn't play the game, which we had to abide to, because we need to recoup the money for their services.

"Benjani, Dave Kitson and Kanu didn't travel to the game. Their future has to be away from Fratton Park, or this football club won't be able to survive, it's as simple as that. They have known that for a long, long time"




- 1,000 new pledges needed in next 2 weeks

Following a board meeting of the PST on 30th April, we can confirm that we aim to begin the final stages of bid preparation for a community buy-out bid for Portsmouth Football Club from the 15th May, and so it is imperative that supporters complete their pledges prior to that date.

Initial interest in the Pre-Share offer has been strong, but more pledges are needed in the coming 14 days in order to submit a formal bid.  If 1,000 more pledges from fans are received by the 15th May then that will confirm our bid as achievable.

The Pre-Share offer, launched on 30th March, was designed to see if sufficient funds could be raised from fans and local businesses to mount a sustainable and viable bid for Pompey.

12 Pompey players have already supported the PST plans with investment pledges, and the PST would like to thank the players and their families for their support.

PST has also had significant interest from donors wishing to invest sums significantly in advance of £1,000, and will soon announce the support of at least one major donor.

Pompey administrator Trevor Birch has made it clear that the club will run out of money in June. PST can only mount a credible community buy-out bid if it has enough funds to do so.

The next 14 days will determine whether the goodwill towards a community buyout can be translated into a bid for the club. If enough pledges are received to mount a bid, PST will present it to investors and members as soon as possible, and before any bid is agreed and submitted.

PST Chairman Ashley Brown commented;

' We have had great support from players and fans alike, but need more support if we are to mount a viable bid for the club. The next 14 days will be crucial. If enough money comes in to make a bid viable, we will present our plans to investors and members for their approval before we go forth and submit a bid.

Our precise targets are confidential - and we are sure fans will understand that as we go into a bidding process. We will share as much information as we can, and will not proceed without the approval of our investors and members.

It is now or never for the PST bid - and we urge fans who are considering joining us to contact us, talk to us, and pledge. Time is running out for Pompey, and we are doing everything we can to save our beloved football club '

No Buyers - No Bids - Administrator Trevor Birch

From the News April 26, 2012

Pompey administrator Trevor Birch has admitted the chance of Pompey playing in league one next season is 50/50.

Birch made the admission to creditors at a meeting at Fratton Park this morning.

He said: ‘No-one is making the noises that will convince me. I am still trying to keep them at the table.’

The administrator told members of the audience that at present no bids had been made for the club and the future of the club is in the balance.

Stuart Gray on the way out

Report from the News April 26, 2012

Pompey coach Stuart Gray is set to leave the club. Administrator Trevor Birch had informed Gray and Guy Whittingham their jobs were under threat, with further redundancies being made at Pompey. It now appears Gray will depart after arriving last summer.

Pompey boss Michael Appleton said: ‘Nobody wants to be told you might be losing your job and it effects people in different ways.’

Balram Chainrai pledges to prevent liquidation of Portsmouth Football Club

April 26, 2012 report from the News

REPRESENTATIVES of former Pompey Balram Chainrai have said the businessman will not see the football club liquidated. Chainrai would stand to lose the £17m he is owed as a secured creditor from his previous spell as Blues owner if the worst were to happen.

But his team have told fellow creditors at a meeting at Fratton Park the Hong Kong based businessman will not allow Pompey to be liquidated.

Administrator Trevor Birch said that liquidation would see the ground become asset of liquidators and they will sell it as they see fit. In March Chainrai told Sky Sports: ‘I will definitely make efforts to become a reluctant owner, again, until a proper owner can be found.

‘I will do my best not to allow him (Birch) to liquidate the club.’ (see the report and Forum Topic in March, where Balram Chainrai made pledges here)

More Staff made redundant

April 25, 2012  Linvoy Primus has been made redundant..  

Shocking News which will make many Pompey fans realize the serious nature of the position Pompey are in is that the latest round of redundancies made by administrator Trevor Birch includes Linvoy Primus..

This man epitomizes Pompey and is a true legend in every sense of the word. Many could now question their continued support for what will be left of Portsmouth Football Club and what it represents.

2 New Parties interested in the Buy out of Portsmouth FC

April 14, 2012 POMPEY administrator Trevor Birch is hopeful of securing the club’s future after revealing two new interested parties have come to the table.

Report and comment in Forum here

Trust urges share support

April 12, 2012 THE Pompey Supporters’ Trust has urged fans to back its share scheme after Trevor Birch’s liquidation warning. Spokesman Scott Mclachlan said: ‘The statement from Mr Birch reiterates the message that Pompey could be a matter of weeks from disappearing unless a buyer can be found.

‘The CVA is crucial as it is hoped it could deliver a debt-free Pompey to any prospective buyer and will make urgent restructuring to cut the club’s running costs easier. ‘It highlights that the trust’s pre-share issue is currently the only positive move anyone has made to save it.

‘We ask everyone to get involved in pledging to buy a share by visiting and depositing £100 to register your interest.’

The Blues were named Tokio Marine Family Club of the Year at the 2012 Football League awards in London.
