It is comforting to note that the British press have now openly made an apology to Portsmouth Football Club.
An apology for miss-representation of our financial situation, indicating that we would have to sell our top players in order to remain solvent, and Tony Adams is going to be sacked and Avram Grant is to be given the job.
Ha, fat chance of that, but in fairness there were a number of our own so called own fans who doubted what was going on and would rather listen to the press instead of Peter Storrie.
Point of fact was that we turned down bids for key players and got the five new players, plus permanently signing Belhadj, so not a bad month of business really. Time will clearly tell if the new additions are good enough to keep us in the big boys league, but one thing is for sure, what we have in the way of players is now going to have to take us through to the end of the season. Whether Tony is there till the end remains to be seen, but I hope he is given a fair chance to integrate the new players and build a revitalised squad.
We have a tough few weeks ahead now with fixtures against Liverpool, Man U and Chelsea, but there are Man C and Stoke in between so hopefully we can pick up points in all of the games. One thing is for sure, we as the fans need to get behind our manager and the eleven players on the pitch and get us back up the table and into safety.
Hopefully if the BBC reports are true there is a renewed interest in a possible buyer for the club, then that would be the icing on the cake if whoever would come in a finance the training facility, new ground and funds to strengthen the squad even further.
We may struggle, we may succeed, but nothing should ever deflect the love for our club.
Play Up Pompey.
