If it is not one thing it is another these days and today’s ‘other’ is the news that former captain Sol Campbell is suing the club over fees and bonuses he claims he is owed.

Campbell, who of course held aloft the FA cup just 18-months ago – although this now seems an eternity ago! – ‘claims’ that he is owed £1.7m in ‘image rights and bonus payments’ and has now started legal proceedings against us…

A Pompey spokesman said: ‘the matter is being dealt with by our lawyers.’

So, yet ANOTHER issue will be dragged though the courts, with the name of PFC dragged through the mud again…

Granted if Sol is owed money he is owed money but is now really the time for him to be doing this? He can see that the club is on its knees so his actions have placed, and will hammer in, another nail to our coffin!

Although you will need to get to the back of the queue though big man…

No doubt the current owners will argue that the matter is between previous owners and Campbell, although I in all honesty that is not the way it will work is it? His contract was with Portsmouth Football Club, whoever owns it.

My God the ‘muppet’ that agreed to all these ridiculous contracts, and various clauses within then, needs a good shoeing – mentioning no names!

Now, which player can be flogged to settle with the man that we paid a fortune, is one of the richest footballers in world football, was a player that we rescued from the scrap heap, we helped get back into the England fold, aided him to win another FA cup winners medal and have another crack at Europe…

Cheers Sol!
