Disappointments Are Nothing New To Pompey Boss-will They Ever End?

  Michael Appleton has told of his latest Fratton disappointment - the postponement of Saturday's clash with Hull. The Pompey boss praised the efforts of the groundstaff in trying to get the game on but said the players were keen to get out and play and build on the fine win at Peteborough the previous week. Disappointment is nothing new to Appleton, though - and he is ....

Andronikou Is Not Happy Ahead Of Pompey's Critical Week

    The administrator trying to steer Pompey through their current troubled waters has revealed he was 'not happy at all' at the failure to raise upwards of £1m from player sales on transfer deadline day.

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

Pompey's clash with Hull City has failed to beat the big freeze. A pitch inspection shortly before 9.30am left officials believing there was too much frost on the pitch which would not get the sun it needed to thaw. It is a big blow for fans who were all set to Pack The Park and show unity in the face of the latest threat to the club's future. ADVERTISEMENT The pitch ....

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. Tickets have been selling faster than a normal home game for Saturday's meeting with Hull City - but not fast enough. There are plenty left, so if you know someone who is thinking about going but has yet to commit, put the pressure on - and get the message across that now is the time ....

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. As the window shut, Ryan Williams was the only player to leave Fratton - with Fulham agreeing a deal reported to be worth around £400,000 for the young Australian winger. That meant the threatened ....

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. The need for the Blues to raise money was arguably heightened by news their bank accounts had been frozen following the winding-up petition issued by HMRC last week. 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 ....

Liquidation? Administration? Not On The Agenda For Pompey...

It's an upbeat assessment from administrator Andrew Andronikou - whether Pompey fans are convinced by it is another matter. In an interview with Talksport, Andronikou says he is not contemplating the club going into administration, liquidation or ceasing trading. But he has admitted the sale of players and relegation to League One are issues that have come on to the radar. His comments come as ....

Pompey Fans Alone Can't Save Club - But They Can With Help

Pompey's Supporters' Trust does not believe it is impossible for the PFC to become a community club. The trust will be central figures at a meeting being organised by The News on Thursday to look at how the club's latest brush with financial disaster can be overcome. The trust admits the scale of debt is too much for fans alone to offset - but said a combined show of force from supporters, ....

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 ....

Ipswich Sent Packing After 'testing' Penniless Pompey

It didn't take Ipswich long to follow news of Pompey's latest financial woes with a new bid for Joel Ward and Jason Pearce. Happily, the people with the Pompey purse strings weren't born yesterday - and happily the pair don't want to play for Ipswich. The Tractor Boys have made an improved offer for the pair, it was revealed the day after news of the taxman's immient court action against the ....

Pompey New Boy: Team Can Do Better - And So Can I

Kelvin Etuhu rued the 'horrible' end to his Pompey debut but said the squad remained confident they could turn the corner. The ex-Cardiff midfielder saw his old side nick the points with an injury=time winner - that after goals from Marko Futacs and Greg Halford had put Pompey into a 3-2 lead. Etuhu said he felt the Blues could do better next time out at Peterborough - and said he personally ....

Pompey's Squad Is Growing Not Shrinking As Cardiff Test Looms

New Signing Imminent At Pompey, But Will It Be 'another Hermann'?

It's one in one out at Pompey - and if the one coming in serves the club as well over the next five years as the one going out has done for the past five years, it will be a great bit of business by Michael Appleton. That's because the outgoing player is Hermann Hrediarsson, who has run through brick walls for Pompey season in season out and become part of Fratton Park's fixtures and ....

Pompey's Pain Over Penalty And Red Card Can Make Team Stronger

The controversial refereeing decisions which cost Pompey the chance of any points against West Ham can make them strong. So says Jason Pearce, who reckons the spirit in the camp can grow in the wake of losing to a dubious penalty and seeing David Norris red-carded, which is likely to mean him missing the next three games. Pearce felt Pompey played well against the Hammers and said Michael ....

Hermann Set For Sky Blues Switch

Pompey defender Herman Hreidarsson has agreed a move to Championship strugglers Coventry City. The 37-year-old has found his first-team opportunities limited of late under new manager Michael Appleton and the move could pave the way for West Brom's Joe Mattock to return to the club on loan. Hreidarsson joined Pompey in 2006 from Charlton and was a member of the 2008 FA Cup winning side. A ....

Pompey Boss Won't Get Carried Away - But Might Want New Owners To...

Michael Appleton is hoping - but not expecting - Pompey's prospective new owners will get the deal to buy the club sewn up before too much of January is over.

Skipper Talks Up Pompey's Chances - And So Does Andronikou

Liam Lawrence looked ahead to Pompey's FA Cup challenge at Chelsea and said it was a 'you never know' sort of tie. Pompey's skipper believes if they can catch Andre Villas Boas' team on an off-day - of which they have had quite a few in recent weeks - they have a chance of a positive result. But it seems that hopes of Blues fans knowing who's in line to buy their club by the time they visit ....
