I may be wrong about this as I have not had time to read all the articles but I’ve just had a bit of a thought.

We’ve all been speculating about what sold Pompey to the Doc but nobody seems to have made much of the fact that we jetted off to Dubai for a mid-season training camp just a few months ago! I have a hunch that a bit of a deal was brewing even then.

In fact pompeyrug somewhat jokingly suggested this might happen in an article dated March 2nd entitled “Dubai here we come – find a buyer guys…

We all laughed at the time but I have a sneaky suspicion that this might ACTUALLY have been what happened!

So, am I onto something?! Or has somebody already mentioned this?

  • Interesting thought. I suppose it may have crossed my mind at the time but didn’t really register.

  • Nahh man, no1 seems to have mentioned it, but yes very good call indeed, and a good memory! 🙂

  • I remember reading somewhere that Storrie first made contact with the Dr’s people in February and they met up in March. So you could be right.

  • Good point but as someone who gets out there frequently I can tell you we were on well kmown and on the box quite cos of Kanu, Diarra, Sulley and the atmosphere but mostly for a reputation for good open footy which OKI took good advertising from.

  • hopefully, we will return to good open football, and bring a new manager in (sven). but you could be on to something there Ziggstix

  • nope, cannot claim that i did… of course the ‘hope’, even in jest, was there that we could impress our guests when out there and i would think we did as we got actively involved in the community, behaved ourselves and sold the club well, so it must have helped.

  • Hmmm. Good point mate. Well, some time ago Malta’s best newspaper mentioned that Pompey might come to Malta for a pre-season training camp and if this is true, it is a pity as I would have bougt Pompey myself….

  • Good connection Ziggstix I remember the article but thought it would be more to do with setting up a pre-season tournamant or somethng.. seems you could be onto something..

  • Godd article & some interesting thoughts. let’s hope it all goes thru ober the bext few weeks & start planning for next season.
