I think that we had all pretty much come round to the idea that administration, at best, was the likely outcome for Pompey…

Appy said last weekend that he was ‘braced’ for this and would take on the challenges of this when it arrives.

Well, according to The Guardian this is something that will be confirmed either tonight or tomorrow morning!

Admin would see us docked at least 10pts, although at this point in time we would still be above the relegation zone and, for me, with a good chance of survival from relegation.

The only problem is I could foresee a situation where players will be loaned out with the option to buy in the summer to cut costs, therefore weakening an already threadbare squad…

The report ‘claims’ that the players and staff have been informed that this will happen (by this I mean admin, not the loaning of players), all – assuming The Guardian is right, as it is likely they are – that is needed is official confirmation of this.

Portsmouth to enter administration for the second time in two years – here.

£1m was ‘advanced’ from the premier league today, apparently, although that is a drop in the ocean compared to what is needed…
