Erik's Gone - So Who Said It Wasn't As Bad For Pompey This Time?

    Erik Huseklepp is not the only person forced out of Fratton Park to save money this week but he's probably the most high-profile - and he is probably also the only one to walk straight into a more secure job. His shock loan move to Birmingham - likely to be followed by a permanent move in the summer - is part of drastic measures to cut the club's ....

Will Pompey's Fretful Friday Be Followed By A Smooth Saturday? Unlikely...

Friday promises to be a rocky ride for Pompey - and Saturday might not provide much respite.

Pompey Out To Prove Themselves To Blackpool ... And The World

Pompey must be the only football club who have a siege mentality more often than the local armed police unit and hostage negotiators. That's the problem with picking up threats to your very survival like some others collect yellow cards - the backs-to-the-wall outlook has to begin to wear off after a while. But so far the Blues are doing a pretty good job with the world, or what seems like it, ....

Don't Pack The Park: Pompey Forced To Give In To Frost

Plenty Will Pack The Park At Pompey - But Will You?

There's a way to go - but the people heading attempts to 'Pack the Park' are not about to give up on the idea.

Defender's Pompey Stance Is Great News (probably)

It's a loyal attitude which has delighted Pompey fans - although Jason Pearce, among other players, has raised questions about how Pompey will pay off the taxman with his 'I don't want to leave' stance. Pearce and Stephen Henderson were both targets for Ipswich on deadline day and some reports said the clubs agreed a £1m deal, which seemed like a steal for the Tractor Boys. But neither got ....

Only One Leaves Pompey - But Will That Pay The Taxman?

Pompey came through transfer deadline day relatively unscatched - although questions remain over how the club will now raise the money they need to ward off their winding-up petition from HMRC.

Player Sales Are Suddenly Not Pompey's Biggest Worry

Just when you thought the potential deadline-day sale of some of their key players was Pompey's biggest immediate problem, a bigger one was revealed.

It means the club's staff - players included of course - will not get their ....

Pompey's Posh Visit As Hard To Call As Another Big Match

Like HMRC v PFC, Peterborough v Pompey is one of those 'something has to give' encounters. And like the big February 20 London High Court clash, the big January 28 London Road clash is a difficult one to call. Both the Posh and Pompey have lost their last three - and both have struggled for most of the campaign to climb much higher than their current positions, 16th and 17th, in the ....

Pompey: We Were Told There'd Be Funds To Avoid This

Pompey say the winding-up petition by HMRC has come about because assurances given to them when CSI went into administration have not been kept. The club say they were told by the administrators and chargeholders Portpin there would be money to keep the club going in the short term - but this had not happened, partly because there had been difficulties with the sale of other parts of the CSI ....
