Colin Farmery: The Truth Will Out - Chainrai Is Part Of The Solution...

COLIN FARMERY   The first casualty of war is the truth. Sadly, so it seems as the 'battle' hots up to buy Portsmouth Football Club out of administration. As things stand there are only two candidates vying to ensure the club survives into its 129th year of existence for season 2012-13. In the 'red' corner is Portpin. Effectively controlled by Balram ....

Colin Farmery: It Was Tight, But Pompey Fans Get The Right Result From The High Court

    Never has losing ten points felt so good. After two and a half years of having its name dragged through the mud, Portsmouth Football Club and its long-suffering supporters might finally be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Administration for PFC was always pretty much a given, once the club's directors had decided that was the best course of action in the light of ....

Colin Farmery:the True Enemy Of Pompey's Future Revealed...

  While a victory over Coventry and a plum draw in the third round of the FA Cup did much to lift some of the gloom eneveloping Fratton Park in recent days, it is fair to say the club is far from out of the woods. CEO David Lampitt met with fans' representatives on Saturday. While there are no cast-iron guarantees, he was as reassuring as one could expect in the circumstances. On points ....

Colin Farmery:pompey's Good News Hi-jacked? You Can Bank On It...

  This was going to be an unequivocal pro-Pompey article on the eve of new manager Michael Appleton's first match in charge. But this being Pompey, just when you thought there was a chink of light at the end of the tunnel, the news of Snoras bank's imminent administration saw the club implicated in the international headlines again for all the wrong reasons. Vladimir Antonov, who is the ....

Colin Farmery: Why Pompey Should Be Thankful To The New Forest Boss

      Steve Cotterill is now consigned to the Pompey history books and there are plenty of Pompey fans who are clearly relieved that is the case. Throw in the fact Nottingham Forest have had to pay PFC for the privilege releasing him from his contract (not to mention avoiding having to pay up his contract in the event of a sacking) and this parting of the ways suits all ....

Colin Farmery: Is There A Massage In The Medium For Pompey's Fans?

      Saturday was a first for me as a Pompey fan. And no, I'm not referring to the fact that my beloved team, perhaps for the first time in its history, managed to record more red cards (one) than shots on target (none) in losing 1-0 to Hull City. Instead it is a personal first, where I was at last able to use 20 years' experience of teaching media and communication ....

Colin Farmery: Cotterill Pulls It Off, So Now Give Him The Tools Csi

    With one bound - well. a smartly-taken volley by Luke Varney in injury time actually - he was free! Pompey boss Steve Cotterill was under the spotlight a little bit at Middlesbrough, after the disastrous end to Pompey's pre-season training camp in the USA. Would the team suffer the after-effects of jet-lag from their delayed flight? Would they be under-prepared after last ....

Colin Farmery: Is It Time For Pompey To Look Closer To Home?

The one thing I really thought might happen this summer, after the takeover by CSI early in June, was that Pompey would have a \'normal\' pre-season to prepare for the coming campaign. And after last season\'s chaotic and draining tour of North America, organised for financial rather than sporting reasons, one might have thought the club would have wanted to steer clear of the States this time ....

Colin Farmery: No Time To Lose - Csi Must Get To Work Building Pfc\'s Future

Welcome Vladimir Antonov, Roman Dubov, Chris Akers and their Convers Sports Initiatives brand to Portsmouth FC. You have bought arguably the last remaining \'big\' club in England, which has yet to be brought into the 21st Century in terms of its infrastructure. Given the right investment, there is no reason why the club shouldn\'t turn out to be a fantastic acquisition for you and for us as ....

A Deal Is In The Air, But Can It Pass A Significant Test?

  Pompey Chief Executive David Lampitt has appealed for the club\'s takeover saga to be completed quickly or else the club could face difficulties in tying up the transfer deals they want to complete. On the face of it he is correct. Current owners Balram Chainrai, Levi Kushnir and Deepak Chainrai are reluctant custodians and until they find a suitable deal to recoup anything ....

Colin Farmery: Credit Where It\'s Due For Sacha Gaydamak?

  It\'s not often news from a Paris court room makes the headlines at Portsmouth Football Club, but the decision last Friday by a court of appeal to throw out a conviction against Arkadi Gaydamak for illegal arms trading with Angola and bribing French government officials, should make Pompey fans everywhere feel just a little bit better about their club. But most of all, former ....

Archive: When Colin Met Sacha #2 - August 2007

Pompey-fans.com editor Colin Farmery was invited to another get together of supporters\' representatives with Sacha Gaydamak. Here\'s his view of how it went... Pompey\'s new reception area is swish to say the least. All discreet, recessed lighting, marble-effect counters (Or was it wood? Whatever it looked expensive) Sky news and Sports on 42\" plasma screens and plush velour 70s style swivel ....

Archive: When Colin Met Sacha #1 - January 2007

For the first time a small group of fans have been invited to meet Sacha Gaydamak. I was one of them and this is my personal impression of the meeting and the man who owns PFC... To most Pompey fans he is an enigma. It is now 12 months since Sacha Gaydamak walked into Portsmouth Football Club and yet still fans are little closer to knowing who the owner of the club is and his plans for the ....

Colin Farmery: Can Chainrai And Kushnir Pass Their Biggest Test Of All?

As talk of a takeover of Portsmouth Football Club by Convers Sports Initiatives remains in the air, we are moving perhaps the defining moment of the Balram Chainrai and Levi Kushnir era. To say their tenure has been controversial is an understatement. It is probably fair to say that no PFC owners have ever quite split opinion as the unlikely duo of a Hong Kong-based British citizen of Nepalese ....
