Portsmouth are goners.

They won't start the season, therefore the side that finishes in 21st place in League 1 will be safe from relegation.

Portsmouth Town FC will start in the Southern League in 2013-14, ground-sharing with Havant & Waterlooville, whilst Fratton Park gets sold for housing.

^^ nothing better to do and write rubbish then lol quessing your a saint, be good to see what the score will be ermmm man city 6-0 saints i reckon ;)

Agree4 Disagree6

I hope Portsmouth do fold. They're a dreadful team, theyve lingered on for the last few seasons. They only have themselves to blame. Poor ownership and disgraceful over seas investment. I for one am sick of hearing about them. I hope all clubs that uave foreign investment fold over the next few years...selling your club to foreigners is asking for trouble. It's o nly a matter of time before they become bored and pull out. Would love it to happen to Man City,Chelsea,Watford,Forest,Sunderland,Leeds and Newcastle(just cos they think they're big when they're not) {Ed025's Note - you really are a nasty piece of work..

Agree3 Disagree1

Since when has current Leeds owner Kenneth Bates being a foreigner, lol. He might still keep the club yet.
I hope Portsmouth do survive, I feel sorry for the supporters having been through the same with Leeds. At the end of the day the fans didn't ask, nor did they have a say in the poorly run finances.
Bet last poster is a fan of someone like Wigan, or maybe Darlingto,. with their hatred of Newcastle and sunderland, and their jealousy of foreign owners with lots of cash.

Agree0 Disagree2

There is a difference between good foreign owners and bad. AS far as i can see Ellis short has spent more money than bob murray did for his whole tenure, clampet

Agree0 Disagree0

6 - 0 to Cithee, at least we're there again fella, please write some more inane non contributory drivel...COYRs

Agree0 Disagree0

* Leeds and Newcastle (cos they think they're big when they're not) not because they're foreign owned! Ed,I'm not a nasty piece if work, I'm like every other football fan. I follow a team passionately, I dislike a host of clubs for various reasons. I personally feel foreign investment is de-personalizing our football clubs and selling off years of history. Its not jealously of their investment. Man city for example have for the majority been in man utds shaddow. They hated what they stood for, with their new foreign investment they are now the type of club they stood against for so long. They've sold out and lost their tradition and history. I challenge you to admit you don't have a hatred of various clubs or dislike the foreign investors that use our clubs as a hobby or a new toy. Pompey would be better to fold and start again as a newco their fans would stick by them and they would eventually get back into the football league. A new club creating a new history..hopefully learning lessons from past foreign investors. {Ed025's Note - i can see some of your points mate...but im afraid time has moved on...and wishing misfortune to other just not on!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Your not a real football fan there are you wishing a club to fold, just put your self in pompeys fans shoe`s not there fault how owners have run the club im a pompey fan and i dont want to hear about that sort of news all the time but thats how it is but in a few days the 4 players left will be sold and a deal for pompey will go through then put it all behind us , any way your club might be in a bad pos one day or it might already have , thanks ed025`s nice to see some one stick up for pompey on here

Not heard these rumours but why would we resign Mpenza when the last time he was here he did nothing but contribute to financially ruining us with his big headed wage demands.
We know we won't break the bank with wages especially for an over rated has been who still rates himself highly
