It has come to my attention that some people are slightly worried about a recently published article on Vital Pompey ‘Speculative Takeover Discussions’ but I want to put people’s minds at rest.

Look at it this way fellas, everything has to be taken with a pinch salt, the title says it all! ‘Speculative’, this being the key word – until something official is announced by the club – if indeed it has to – then nothing is true.

There could be complete truth behind this suggestion, or it could be a complete fabrication – paranoid I know – possibly from ‘another’ Pompey website who perhaps are not happy with how Vital Pompey is regaining the popularity that it might have once lost, so this was viewed as a way to bring us down?

I cannot stress enough how any of those thoughts are not mine, nor have they come from anyone connected with this site in an editorial role.

Yep, with the international break news might be at a premium be we here at Vital Pompey would never, I repeat never stoop so low as to make up something like this ourselves – this will not happen on my watch, I have too much respect for this network as a whole, my beloved Pompey and of course each and everyone of you – our members – to do something like that, a few of you know me personally now, so I would hope you would know this is the case.

If suggestions or proposals are put forward I use them, we are all entitled to our say are we not? So I will not gag anyone – within reason.

The subject appears to have some backbone to it, but the thing we have to remember above all else is that until Portsmouth Football Club officially releases anything – if indeed there will ever be anything to release, then nothing is true is it.

The fella supplying this information seems to have credentials to back up his claims, the Comer Brothers were indeed involved in a failed attempt for Villa – but this was common knowledge that anyone could pick up on – although nothing with any real basis came about so quite what they could offer Pompey, if any such move is being made, or will be made only time would tell – or not?

I have a few contacts that are trying to verify a few things for me, but again do not worry about anything and do take this with a very large pinch of salt – nothing is true until the club announce it is true, this fella could very well be genuine, but then again as said he could be out to make a fool out of me hence I will not put Vital Pompey as fully backing up any claims that are made until I have concrete proof.

However should this come off then Vital Pompey will have had the most exclusive of exclusives, if not someone’s failed attempt to ‘ruin us’ or whatever it was will have done just that – hopefully – failed!

PLAY UP POMPEY!
